Since my last post in late August, I did decide to request GCMS notes in October.
Since then I've gotten Physical Presence & Language Skills updated (on November 8th).
Still waiting for Prohibitions for the past 10 days but hoping my application's completed soon.

I do see Decision Made in ECAS, which had not been the case before I checked today. Even last week it said In Progress... so hoping that's a good sign that this will be done soon!

You should give IRCC a call and they will share Oath date with you. Its taking time to see that in the tracker these days.

Should I call the local office? I’d like to call tomorrow. It’s been since 2018 since I have them a ring for my PR application!

It tough to get to talk to an agent. Trick from this forum

Call 1 888 242 2100
Dial 1
Your UCI then #
Press 1, 1, 1, 4 in quick succession, each time waiting to be taken to the next prompt
Now listen a bit. When prompted,
Press 1, 1 in quick succession, again till you are taken to the next prompt.
You will hear - High number of callers or you are in queue. If former, follow above steps. Else, you should be able to speak.

Hi,
I know it sounds weird but I am in US right now and I was able to reach out to IRCC agents through my canada #.
In fact i got a call back request option since the wait time was over 38 minutes.
I called first thing in the morning and i got a chance to speak with an agent. I guess it depends on when you call and also maybe due to high volume of calls some calls might get dropped.

That's good but based on experience shared call back option is not available, also after long wait the call drops.

I have an update on nov 24,2022 after my test on January, 2022. But it's for an interview yet makes me happy for having some progress on application. Any insights on what to expect in the interview and how fast I can move to oath after the interview.?

This is for Online Applicants - If you had received a request to submit a scan copy of passport pages and do you get to see the request update on the online tracker ?
Any response regarding this will be appreciated.
No, I got this request as an email, but nothing was visible on the online tracker.
