  1. Hi Everyone,

    Congratulations for submitting your eAPR and becoming part of December 2019 AOR gang.

    This thread is to assist everyone with questions in relation to process tracking, trends, processing timelines concerns and just to get together and plan the upcoming move over to Canada while trying to understand when to expect your PPR.

    Good luck!

    I will be sharing some statistics below to help you with the process.

    ----

    Please submit your questions here and will do my best to answer those!

    All the best and see you in Canada!

    What happens after you submit you application?

    Answer:

    Excellent post about it here: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/application-stages-what-they-mean-mep-ip1-ip2-ghost-update-version-2019.612656/

    If you have an AOR of 31 Dec 2018 or later , follow the chart below to track your progress. Candidates will remain in a state of 'False IP2' throughout their application and only see a series of 'ghost updates' following their MEP; the first such ghost update (which should follow shortly after MEP) will signify your Real IP1, the second ghost update will signify your Real IP2, and the third will be your ‘Final’ Ghost Update, following which you are likely to receive your PPR.

    If you have an AOR date of up to 30 Dec 2018, the chart also applies to you if you meet one or more of these conditions: you are a CEC or PNP-Inland candidate, you were required to provide your biometrics or you did not pay your RPRF upfront.

    Note for FSW-Outland candidates who have an AOR date of up to 30 Dec 2018: If you did not need to provide biometrics and paid your RPRF upfront, the old transition from NA1 all the way to a Final Ghost Update will still apply to you. Your Background Check should have started in NA1 ("Not Applicable" 1), meaning your Background Check status said "Not Applicable" right after you submitted your application.

    General:
    EE
    - Express Entry: Canada's score-based program for economic immigrants
    CRS - Comprehensive Ranking System: System for ranking candidates for EE
    ITA - Invitation to Apply: an invitation to apply for permanent residence
    e-APR - electronic Application for Permanent Residence: the online application for PR after receiving an ITA
    RPRF - Right of Permanent Residence Fee: a fee collected as part of your PR application
    AOR - Acknowledgement of Receipt (of application): email confirming receipt of your application after you submit and pay your fees
    ADR - Additional Document Request: IRCC sends a message asking you to provide a specific document to supplement your application.

    Post-submission stages:
    False IP2
    - Usually right from AOR or just after MEP. Background Check shows "We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information.”
    MEP - Medicals passed: review of medical results changes from "You do not need a medical exam." to "You have passed the medical exam." There is no email for MEP.
    Ghost Update - When you log in, the application says it's been "updated" but none of the fields have changed. Once you logout and log back in, the application returns to being "submitted". Ghost updates are not announced by email and a candidate must check their profile daily to not miss them.
    Ghost Update #1 or Real IP1 - "In progress" 1: Background Check changes to "Your application is in progress. We will send you a message when we start your background check." Usually follows MEP. Some applicants (especially Inland and CEC) skip this stage. You should receive an email for your Real IP1 - the email will not provide any details, just that your application has been updated.
    NA2 - "Not Applicable" 2: Background Check changes to "Not Applicable" again after IP1. Some applicants skip this stage and it is easily missed. No email.
    Ghost Update #2 or Real IP2 - "In progress" 2: Background Check changes to "We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information." No email.
    NA3 - "Not Applicable" 3: Background Check changes to "Not Applicable" again after IP2 (uncommon).
    Ghost Update #3 or Final Ghost Update - Often considered a sign that PPR is coming soon. Not seen by all applicants.
    PPR - Passport request: IRCC sends "Ready for visa" e-mail asking you to submit your documents to your visa office so they can issue your CoPR and entry visa if applicable. A PPR is announced only by email, and there may be no changes made directly to the profile. If you are worried you might miss it, you can whitelist the email domain @cic.gc.ca to ensure the email comes straight to your inbox.
    CoPR - Confirmation of Permanent Residence: A document that says you've been approved for permanent residence.

    Other notes:
    1. The ‘eligibility’ and ‘final decision’ fields in your profile will not change to passed until after you receive your CoPR. This is an example of what a profile may look like following a CoPR.
    2. Remember that these are not "official" stages, but they are used frequently throughout the forum to track the processing of applications.[/B]

  3. What is CSE? (required: when you want to update CIC on changes/corrections in your application)

    Case Specific Enquiry also known as IRCC Web form. Available here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/contacts/web-form.asp


    What are GCMS notes?

    GCMS notes is a complete and most recent information from your Canadian immigration/visa file GCMS stands for the Global Case Management System, which is used by the Government of Canada to store and process all immigration and visa applications worldwide. If you have ever submitted any application to the Canadian immigration authorities – for example an application for permanent residence, for a visitor visa, study or work permit etc. – your application and all information about its processing is stored in GCMS You can request GCMS notes - information from your file stored in the system. Inside you will find immigration officers' notes that will allow you to understand how your current application is being processed GCMS notes can be requested from Canada or by a Canadian citizen only
     
  4. What is R10 Completeness Check

    An acknowledgement of receipt (R10 passed) letter is issued to an applicant (or their representative, if applicable) once their application for permanent residence has passed the R10 completeness check.

    The letter is issued by the Centralized Intake Office. If the application was submitted electronically, this letter is sent to the applicant (or their representative, if applicable) via their MyCIC account; otherwise, the letter is sent by mail.


    This letter should not be confused with the electronic receipt of the application for permanent residence letter.


    This is the official acknowledgement of receipt letter and it may be used to support a bridging open work permit if all other requirements are met.
