^ Don't worry about the due date, it just means an officer will check on your file if it is still active by then.
Chances are, your PR application will be approved before those due dates occur.

You can request your GCMS notes again, but no guarantee that SG VO will have touched your file since.

In my GCMS notes, there was a 2 month gap between the assessment in Ottawa and the final review in Manila.

You may have to be requested for the medical again, but IELTS and ECA no more.
As always, thanks for the insight Bellaluna. Trying to keep sanity intact , haha. Waiting game is getting stressful as time goes by.

There have been a few here, most recently si amjk. I think sa Manila VO maximum na yung a little over 1 month. Sa ibang VO umaabot minsan ng 2 months.

Hello po ulit:)


Sa Admissiblity / Criminality Area of notes, below po yung details

Status : Not started
status updated date : 2016/02/12
due date : 2017/02/10

Ang tagal nang 2017, waaah, nasasagad ba talaga hanggang due date sa security check? dun po sa mga nag request nang GCMS notes na completed na application pa advise naman po.. huhu,

At yung local VO(e.g. SG VO) ba may updates din usually sa notes,, balak ko kasing mag request ulit in the next few weeks, last update nung notes is July pa, last request date ko is August 9.

By that time expire na medical namin, sa ganitong case uulitin po ba?
I assume IELTS, WES ECA, hindi na siguro.

TIA.
hi @dreamer2015, pareho tayong SGVO.. yeah i've heard how slow SGVO can be... i hope your app gets movement ASAP.

my CIC AOR is Aug 4, i ordered notes last aug 31 and it arrived sep30
maraming activity sa Ottawa and then it got transferred to SGVO on Aug 18...
my next due date naman is Sep 11, 2016... so hopefully may ginawa na ang SGVO.... i will be ordering GCMS bi-monthly. i ordered again on Oct 1.

i confirmed mine thru emailing Manila VO (MANILIMMIGRATION@international.gc.ca ) asking if its with them and they said its with SGVO.

Then when I got my GCMS notes, it is also indicated that Ottawa transferred my file to SGVO.

Yes, please do make it formal.
I would suggest waiting a month after your AOR date before sending. Because it could still be in Ottawa.

Hello po!

Newbie here.

Ask ko lang po if anyone here with CRS 400 pataas ang nakareceive ng email from CIC na may update sa application nýo pero wala new message or anything sa account mo? Nag email ako sa CIC, sabi nila, ibig sabihin daw may update sa process ng application ko. Any idea if positive or negative po ito?

thanks heaps!

Nice 123Pinoy ambilis ma transfer sa SGVO nang papers mo, Aug 4 AOR then Aug 18th nasa SG na, ambilis yata talaga nang mga NBPNP, hehe. Baka priority.:)

sa case ko 2 months since AOR bago na assign sa SG eh haist.

San ka pala nag order nang GCMS, ako kasi nag consultant kaya sa kanila rin ako nag order. Not sure kung puede akong mag order sa outside sa agent ko.

kabayans, any of you have applied for NBI clearance from abroad (or in toronto?), would like to seek clarification po sana on the next steps after getting the "blue form" from the consulate.
- once i mail the blue form to my relative with authorization letter - do they need to still go to the NBI website and apply for new clearance? or do they just need to bring the blue form from the consulate and pick up the green clearance certificate from NBI? - will they also get the form within the day or they need to wait a certain amount of days?
