Hello all.
Hello Andy,
I got the AOR on 9th June. I am the primary applicant. My husband's PCC from home country was getting delayed so instead of waiting we applied and submitted a copy of the receipt of the PCC.
On 10th July we received an email asking us to upload the PCC as an additional document on or before 3rd September. We managed to upload it by 2nd August. The status of the additional document changed several times and now reads 'we do not need additional document's.
We have passed our medicals and also received our UCI before the 10th July letter.
I was not vigilant enough to monitor how the background check status has been changing. It currently states that the application is in progress.
Based on your experience, are you able to determine what stage we are at?

Thanks and good luck to all.
Can you recall has it been in progress and not applicable before that?

I would guess you should be in IP2.

I called them yesterday. The lady said I should be calling only if it is beyond the 6 month time. Upon request all she told me was that our file was being reviewed for completeness. They will next review for eligibility. It was still at the central office and will eventually move to the London office. There is nothing to worry and to be patient and to wait.

The exact background status is that the application is under process and I will receive a message when they start the background check. From what I understand wouldn't this be the IP1?

Since I uploaded the PCC for spouse only on August 2nd and the deadline given by them was September 5th, I am now assuming that I should consider us as August AOR or Sept AOR. We however paid all the money upfront.

If it does make things complicated, we have PCC from 3 countries, India, UAE and Qatar. We have traveled quite a bit especially my husband for business to USA, China, Korea, Turkey, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, France , Malaysia, Thailand.
We have old UCIs as we have multiple entry tourist visa to Canada.

will you get email notification for each background check status change from IP1 to NA, and then from NA to IP2 and from NA?

Thank you!
