When I called Agent for the first time to get my status update. She told me that my eligibility is a pass. I checked online it said that they are still reviewing my eligibility. That did not make sense. So I called agent again after a few days and he said the same eligibility is a pass. I pointed out why is not updated in my application status. He mentioned that it is recommended pass. So another officer will review and pass it in a few days nothing to worry about.Good decision. this is to be considered as a long term investment. do it and forget it! If you keep focussing around it it just messes your mind. I gave up a long time back. When there is an update they will email you.
@SithLord Based on reading GCMS notes regarding the case following is my assumption of the process. It might be entirely wrong. First an analyst picks the application. does first initial review if all the documents are provided. The analyst will provide his/her thoughts on completion of documentation and if it matches what points have been claimed. Recommended Pass= Analyst thinks everything is in order. RR=He thinks that documents are there but requesting officer to review the document and make a final decision. This might mean that they need to verify the document. This is basically triaging the application for completeness. Normally if the application fails at this stage, the IRCC returns the entire fees for the PR application. If it goes beyond this point and a decision is not made if favor, they return only "PR Card Fees" (if already paid).
After this, the case is dumped back into system and system assigns it to a Case Centre/Pool. Now here I think where things get messed up. There seems to be no order or sequence of processing in which cases will be picked up and by which officer. It is just assigned to a Pool. Or if there is a sequence it is clearly not visible. There can be a possibility that GCMS system assigns weights/priority to the application based on the application type and NOC code and officers are required to clear higher priority first.
Wishing everyone all the best and hope the cases progress soon.
I called again last week and they mentioned the same eligibility is a pass but status is showing still reviewing. So I guess it is pass and is finalized but just needs to be verified by another officer so most likely it will pass.
