Hi there,
We have sent the application on Aug 22 and tracked as delivered and signed on Aug 25. Hoping we have filled everything accurately.

Sponsor (me) initially landed as PR in Nov 2018 but only moved permanently in Feb 2020. PA (wife no other dependents) is on a tourist visa arrived Mar 2020 just before the borders shut down, we have applied for her visa extension but application is till in-progress.
Since, I have not filed any taxes yet, all my financials were from USA and I included a cover letter explaining this.
Hi ASenna! welcome to August 2020 Inland applicants group. Nice to have someone on the same boat. We should expect something by October. I recently read a thread that June 2020 inland applicants received their biometrics notice this month. Take care and keep in touch!

Us too! We haven't received AOR yet, but just received the biometric letter minutes ago. Application sent 8/3, received 8/6.

Good news is that it had an application number on it - which means they must have done something for the application, I'm thinking. Going to go read up on the boards here to understand where exactly things stand :)

Oddly, when we check the "do you need to give biometrics", it says that it isn't required. (Spouse is from USA).

In addition to them saying all biometrics services are indefinitely closed, and it won't affect the application. Regardless, we paid the fee, and will wait....

We were unable to link to our application (so far), despite the application number being there.

Has anyone else seen this situation?

Recieved my biometric fee reminder today :). Telling me I have till next month to pay hoping that's good news. I already paid it with my permanent residence fee. Only paid for one biometric I dont think you need to pay for 2 if you already paid the one for pr you shouldnt need to pay for own one as well I think

Yeah, as I updated above, we shouldn't have even needed the biometrics anyways.... we paid the PR fee, and we paid for both my spouse + dependant.... not willing to take the risk of not doing what they want, regardless of their duplicity....

Here is your Google Docs Spreadsheet (commonly referred to as "the spreadsheet") for 2020 Spousal PR applications:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LxDFjvZn-XR9uZpGbPTORYKQf0BMquSXNw0RvmqvZNU/edit#gid=2079961909

Please add your info in to the Inland AUG tab if you haven't done so already. It is a very useful tool to track the progress of applications that have a similar timeframe.
Hey all, is there a WhatsApp group for August? The link on the google sheet, inland August 2020 spreadsheet sends one to March 2020, not August...

Hi all, the Inland August group did not have a column for the "Biometrics Reminder Email" in this data/stats sheet. I added it. You guys can add your dates there! :)

Hey All, Wondering what is this biometric reminder letter about o_O
Our application was delivered on Aug25. Spouse is on a tourist visa and has provided biometrics in nov 2019. She has applied for her TRV extension. Will we get this letter as-well? Should we have paid the biometric fee too?

From what I was reading, you likely won't have to give biometrics again. It's payable online, so I wouldn't fret. If you get the letter, then pay. Otherwise let it ride.

They're not even open for biometrics, but I've heard they are contacting people from back in March to make appointments... So I'm sure we're well down the line.

Submitted Aug 11, received Aug 17 (even though it was two-day courier :confused:). Got biometrics fee reminder today with an application ID on it.
