Visa Office......
Just got my acceptance e-mail and I'm sobbing! Keep your chin up, guys, I know it's an exhausting process but you are almost there, keep your hopes up and remember: not every positive answer gets reported here so you may have the feeling nothing is happening but it is (even though slowly).

Inland + 1 Inland dependant.

Sep 20 AOR. Medical passed on 14th March. No updates after that. Will applying GCMS notes help in anyway apart from knowing the status?

Congratulations to everyone who got their portals recently.

Based on recent portals (June-July 2022), most people with September AORs are getting their portals in 40-44 weeks. If this hypothesis is correct, anyone with AORs in September and October 2021 and running in their 40-44 week should keep an eye on their inboxes, junk/spam folders, and GCKey accounts. I think we're en route to our final destiny.

Just hoping for this hypothesis to be true! LOL!

Hello everyone,

I just received an update for the first time since last November: Medical passed again today, and back ground status changed to "We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information.".

I read last several pages and realized we do need to be strong and positive about the situation here. One person here got the golden email this morning. I got my very first update. I believe these signs are showing us that IRCC is not stopping process our cases, even though they started to draw again today.

Stay positive and continue to do what we've been doing.

Thank you!

Received PR approval letter early this morning.
Replied right away for portal credential.
Received portal credential around one hour ago.
Went to take a picture right away.
Just upload it on the portal.
Waiting for Ecopr and card.

(BTW, GCKEYS doesn't change after last week's update; Still says "We are processing...")

For those who still waiting, please stay positive, it will come eventually!

Thank you everyone here and wish you have a great life in Canada!

Hey everyone. I am trying to upload the photo to the portal, it keeps saying the photo is too bright or too dark. Does anyone know how to fix this?
