Did you receive a separate letter?
I got both info (SA+VO) in the same letter and you can see below... I think you'll get a separate letter for VO.

"Dear Sir/Madam,

This refers to the Application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class you submitted to this office on
behalf of (PA) and family (if applicable).

We are pleased to inform that you have met the requirements for eligibility as a sponsor.

Reminder

The undertaking you signed is an unconditional promise to financially support and provide basic
requirements for your sponsored relative(s). This undertaking is not broken by such changes as the
granting of Canadian citizenship, divorce, separation, relationship breakdown, moving to another

sponsored relative and, if applicable, their accompanying family members become permanent residents
of Canada. This undertaking cannot be cancelled once permanent resident visas are issued to them.

The Application for Permanent Residence for your relative(s) will be forwarded to the visa office in
London for further processing.

Anyone here with additional Medical requests? I mean did they ask you to do some extra tests even after submitting initial medical results
Yes, my husband had to get an additional x-ray because the first was not clear. Some of the people in the waiting room were having to do sputum tests for TB. Hope it goes quickly for you!

Yes this is their new way of being "transparent" post-COVID. All of us have recently been receiving the same letter.

Same here. App received on Feb 24th, 2020.
Nothing since then. Got 2 ghost updates on my wife's application but that's it.

No SA, no Biometrics request, no Medicals, nothing.

Got 2 sets of GCMS notes with nothing started.

Called IRCC and was told that my eligibility (sponsor's) was in the process of being assessed. 1.5 months has passed since then and it's still in process.

Hello everyone.

Finally after having Decision Made on ECAS I received an email with an update and my application is approved on my CIC account!

I can see the COPR number on my account, I don't if I'll receive it in my mail, I'm currently in Canada and still waiting for a response regarding Virtual Landing.

Good luck everyone!

Just checked ECAS and I am a Permanent Resident already it says that I entered Canada at the Etobicoke IRCC and became a PR yesterday! Didn't have to go to Portugal and back to Canada.
