Hi @legalfalcon
Received my GCMS notes yesterday. Attached is the screenshot of the latest update on the notes. It says 'appears RFV' since Feb this year.
Does it mean the file is approved or are there any additional steps left? I can't seem to locate security, everything else is stated as 'passed'.
Thanks!

If you see "approved" on page 2 against Final, then your application is approved.

If you see RFV: ready for visa, in the notes that is a note which indicates that your eligibility is passed subject to any other checks.

Thanks @legalfalcon
Just checked and its says approved!
Now I just have to wait for the CoPR, right?
I'm aware that no one can predict the timeline for the golden email, but is there any inclination? Hoping to hear something before the end of this year.
Thanks for your help, as always.

Are you an Outland or inland applicant?

If it says approved, you just have to wait. Most likely as things open up heading into September, you should see a movement.

Wow this is great news. Progress.
Congratulations!!! I’m happy for you. Hopefully, there will be progress for the rest of us too
Thank you!
I can see light at the end of the tunnel - hoping all of us start hearing back soon! The wait has been an absolute killer
