Wow. 250 pages??? I would say take a quick glance on the notes and see if there's anything concerns you. For me, I focused on my first few pages where it showed where my visa offices were; then i looked at EE- Eligibility assessment, where they took notes about my employer, employment letter and education. Everything looked fine and I went down to the very bottom to look at the case analyst's notes, which were long and detailed; had key words like R10, A11.2, R87.1, CRS Score calculation and so on.

I am not an expert tho!

Thanks so the only thing that I see that catches my attention is that it says for eligibility - review required , and security not yet started , rest everything seems okay. Mr CRS score was 446 and the cut off was 441 for that round.

the notes that the officer made in the end says review required for sibling points sibling documents review , he made a note that rest 431 points that I claimed - eligibility met for that.

I did call the agent today and asked if I need to submit anything more than what I have submitted but he said that till the time you have not been asked to submit any additional documents u don’t need to submit anything!!

I don’t know if I should be worried?

Is the relationship real? Did you provide documents as per guideline on CIC website? If you say yes to the above questions, then you don't need to worry. I am an example for you. My eligibility was "review required" for a month because my common-law partner is in Canada but not- accompanying. My eligibility was eventually approved by VO, as per phone conversation that I had with a CIC agent yesterday.

Hello Guys, My AoR is 24 June and I had submitted all the medical furtherance on 10th July and got medical passed in my account on 11th July. Now my question is that how long does it normally take cic to ask for rprf fee as I had not submitted it with my application? Normally I see people getting it in a month's time. What do you guys think?

Yes the relationship is absolutely real :) . The only reason I feel it can under review is because my father's last name on my birth certificate and my sisters birth certificate was different and I had provided an affidavit for the same and also explained it in the LOE.
The notes also say the the LOE( CLIENT INFORMATION) review needed.

If your IP2 means you have passed the eligibility (only phone call or gcms notes can indicate that) then up to 8 weeks to receive PPR (normally much quicker than 8 weeks).

If an applicant cross 2 months after eligibility set as passed by the visa officer then most likely the applicant is in security screening!

Looks like my case. Its been a month since my eligibility passed, and I passed criminality on 16th of Aug (as per phone call to cic) security check hasn’t been started yet, how long does the security check take any idea?

My AOR is 12th June and RPRF request was on 17th July. But again it varies from case to case. Processing time seems to have slowed down a bit. Just hang in there.

Have you got confirmation of passing the eligibility? If you know the date when eligibility was passed by the Visa Officer from gcms notes then you can understand if it is truly more than a month or not.

Please note that call center agent do not have access to our file and cannot see what actually visa officer has written. They only see the status updates of our gcms notes by the case processing agent (CPA) and visa officer (VO). If the file is transferred to local visa office outside Canada then they do not have access to that status updates either. for example they can see-

Eligibility: Met / Recommended passed / Review Required / Passed
Security: Not started / In progress / Passed
Criminality: Not started / Passed
Medical: In progress / Passed

The call center agent do not know why CPA or VO put eligibility review required! Review required for eligibility could be for work experience letter, Canadian job offer, proof of fund etc. etc. but these call center agent do not see that. They only see the status. We should order gcms notes to know why our file is under review required status. Similarly criminality comes under security thus sometimes when criminality is passed but security not started, the call center agent says security partially completed.

Sometimes our security starts soon after eligibility set as passed but the visa officer does not update the status, that is why applicants get ppr directly from ip1 or within hours/days of ip2 but call center agent would say "Security not started" even long after it has started. For this reason we should not rely on call center agent's comment, we should order gcms notes to know exact progression of our file.

I have called them twice and both the times the agent specifically told me the dates of the different stages of my application.


My Medicals passed on 26th of June ( according to my CIC profile and agent)

Eligibility passed on 25th July ( as told by the agent)

Criminality passed on 16th August( as told by the agent)

And he also said that the security check hasn’t started yet.
