Thanks a lot! did they asked you for CV and your supervisor’s contact information?! If so, when?!Unfortunately, for PhD and master graduate they need to check and this step is very time consuming! And the other step is checking obligatory military service if you have served! What is GU?! You mean 20 days ago you got DM and you haven’t received portal 1?! I’m from Iran, are you from Middle East?! Thanks
No they didn't ask me for any additional document. I'm from China.

GU is ghost update, and you're right I'm still waiting for portal after DM 20 days ago... this is tricky and painful...

It has been 3 months since I got my AOR. Nothing else, after that... :( ... My agent asked me to wait for Medical test request...
Hi Guys, I have read through some comments here this evening. I want to encourage everyone on paper base application route will need at least 24 months (2 Years) for processing. You will need to wait for about 3 months before getting confirmation email for submission of your documents to CIO (Central Intake Office). I have been on this since December 2018 and still waiting. My file was moved from Accra Visa Office early this year to Etobicoke. I have submitted all the requested documents and also passed medical examination. I expecting the application to be approved on or before the end of this month

You guys requires a lot of patience. AOR will take a minimum of 2 months while processing will take about 24 months. That is the reality of paper base
You applied in 2018 and IRCC are still making you wait? Seriously? This is disgusting. Yet they have already finalized paper applications from 2021, and there was someone who even applied in 2022 and got his PAPER PNP APPROVED IN 3 MONTHS!!!

Sorry you have had to wait so long.

Mind you people have been sharing progress of online Non-EE applications and the average time for AOR is currently 300 days, and COPR is 365 days. IRCC have definitely screwed up and seem to be getting new applications quicker than old one's.

Congratulations Sabyasachi!! It help me to get the idea about time line.
I am BCPNP paper based inland applicant with one inland dependent. And my office agency is looking into my case so I don’t receive any updates. I don’t even know if IRCC issued AOR yet.
But yes these timeline does help people like me to guess time line for our application.
My application submission date is 5th Nov 2021 so I am hoping to receive decision by this Nov/Dec.

Thank you once again

Congrats! I reckon that 4-month wait probably actually REDUCED your processing time because so many of these poor people who submitted PR applications in 2020 don't have even have an AOR yet, or have been stuck in limbo with no further instructions since AOR. Did they ask for any additional documents?

Congrats again! Welcome to Canada (permanently)!

Thank you. Yeah, maybe that worked in my favor. IRCC is a blackbox, you never know what's going on; previously I had to wait 11 months to get my TRV in 2021 (inside Canada).

No additional documents were requested at any time during the process.

Really!? Wow. From that Excel sheet ( ONLINE PORTAL NON-EE PNP - Google Sheets ) everyone seemed to got asked for a revised 5669/proof of employment. I wonder what you did that made the officer feel: "I trust this guy, so I won't bother asking anything!"
