I have a similar question.What is the difference between ECAS in process and tracker in progress?
Thank you so muchFrom what I read from couple of threads is, IRCC do not have enough case workers who are trained to work on Online applications. Because of this reason, there is a cap on number of applications they can process. My understanding is with time passing the cap will increase.
At the same time IRCC is planning to phase out paper based system, so naturally paper applications are getting higher preference.
if you want to paper application from the threads it’s better to pay separate application fees as you cannot use the fees you paid for online application until the online application is withdrawn.
I know paper app are more faster but there is a lot of online app complete before 1 year.
Why they said it will take 26 months?
