He received a letter (and email alert) via GCKey online portal on Aug 10th at 8pm requesting the police check. We have already sent that in. I feel that they are just verrry slow to put online updates in ECAS... When I check the ECAS yesterday, there was just the first message. "1. we have received [spouse]'s applicant on July 7th".. This is what it says under sponsor: We received your application to sponsor [spouse] on July 7, 2017. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on August 11, 2017. We started processing your application on August 10, 2017.
