HI,

I received my AOR email and application number today. Application received on Nov19 - AOR Jan 24 for outland. PA is in Jordan.

I tried linking on both Ecas and GCkey but with no luck.

I used Sponsor info on ECAS. PA info on GCKey.

Did that ever happen to anyone? what should i do !??

If any dependent children included in the application are accompanying.
If any dependent children included in the application are non accompanying.

None of this worked for me....I can see the status using the Online Tool...is it maybe because they haven't look at my application that they can't see it (I got an AOR1 in my email but nothing about linking my app). Not sure how they would know what city I intend to live in if they haven't physcially gone through the packet yet?

If you got an AOR it means your application package has been opened and a file created for you. From the questions you are asking I doubt you are doing the right thing. Follow the instructions given above carefully again. what does it say when you try to link?

I tried all the above recommendations, nothing worked. It says "Based on the information you provided, we cannot find any applications" Or something along those lines. Then says "Try again or Contact us"

If you received aor, the have added your file into the system with your personal information including where you intend to live. Your entering the PA s information yes? And number of people in application is 2. Sponsor and PA.

If still nothing! You can send an email abd someone can try to help you

Okay wait for the second email, it usually comes right after AOR, then you can try linking again.

Is this only for the PA?

I'm trying to find the sponsor status on ECAS and it won't show.
