July 5 applicant.
Sponsor side shows decision made on ecas and PA side is still in process.
Voice prompt states eligibility is in progress.
Does anyone know how long it takes to get decision made on PA side after decision made on sponsor side?
Seems like nearly all July applicants got SA and AIP together. Have you tried calling CIC? You can also order GCMS notes.

I am sharing our landing experience for those who are nervous like me . My husband just got landed in Etobicoke. Although wAiting was about 1 hr, our appt was at 8:30 , but they called us at around 9:40 a.m . We got ticket D, and the lady was such a sweetheart, asked genaralize questions like if we have kids, denied any entry to Canada , any criminal record. Checked our addresses for both applicant & sponsor, our fee receipt. Explained everything , and she congrats us. :) So, who are waiting for landing, nothing to worry about. And, i am really thankful for every liitle help from this forum and wonderful people here. Stay positive and you will be done soon, best wishes to who are still waiting. :)

But our ID’s don’t match since husband is too stubborn to change his address on his ID and as for me I already changed my last name to his and has our current address

Thanks to everyone and here is our interview experience for those who are next:

It was super quick. The lady was very nice and was even making jokes! First, she asked us both for an ID and checked their records.

She read a statement saying I am financially responsible for 3 yrs as a sponsor etc. so do I still want to continue with the sponsorship? I said yes. She asked if I’m working, I said yes. Asked what do I do. I answered and she gave me a thumbs up. Those are the only questions she asked me.

And then she asked my husband if he’s been convicted of any crimes in Canada, any pending cases, and if he has wives or dependents somewhere else that he didn’t declare. She made a funny strict face and said, “You better let us know now.” So I kinda went with it and jokingly told my husband, “well, you better tell me now.” And we just all laughed. Lol. She asked when was his last entry to Canada and where, and that’s it. Printed the paper, let my husband sign, and congratulated us and told us to celebrate. She even told us we’re a good combination. Lol. Sweet old lady! Just really basic questions.

Good luck everyone!! No need to worry.

Both of your ID'S need to have the same address or you will get turned away and have to wait weeks again for another appointment date. U need to show proof that you reside at the same address so please take bank statements or bills with the address if you husband doesn't want to change his address on his ID.

Yeah, they specifically asked for proof of address for both of us, So you should take something which proves you both are living at same address. Take any house bills or car insurance or anything which proves the same.

Just finished my landing interview today in literally 5 minutes. Waiting time is 20 mins approx. If you’ve seen my previous posts, you will see my timeline and my issue with not having the same address with my husband’s (sponsor) photo ID. When we were called, the officer already had the COPR and asked for my husband’s ID and checked if it matches with my address on my COPR. I told the officer that he still hasn’t changed his ID and I have our lease, bills, etc.. and he just said it’s not needed cause he believes us lol. That’s it! I am officially a PR!

Anyone got request letter for more proof of relationship? I got the letter like 3 weeks ago and I was trying to gather all the documents today and then I found out it actually says 'submit until the date above mm/dd/yyyy' but I don't see any date on my letter.
I'm currently waiting for my baby's long form birth certificate, which will be ready on this friday. I just assume the duedate will be a month later, but not sure. Anyone has an idea??
And.. for those who already sent more of supporting documents, are you still waiting for the process?
It looks like many of the applicants got their DM. Congrats! Hope I get mine soon too.
I got the same request. It was sent on Feb 19th and asked to respond by March 21st, so exactly 30 days.

Within 5 days my wife (the PA) got a letter which stated among other things : It has been determined that you meet the eligibility requirements to apply for permanent residence as a member of the spouse or common-law partner in Canada class.
That was 3 weeks ago. Since then not a word. getting anxious too.
