Thanks for the update. Did you get the letter via regular mail? was there any update on your eCAS? Also, was the letter coming from IRCC Kitchener?

I appreciate your response.

Little update on my application. Got the letter today for fingerprint. Status was updated on January 30, 2018. Booked fingerprint for Feb 5th. Thank you.

I didn't see any local address in the letter. It probably issued from the local office but no address or seal mentioend.

I appreciate your response.
Did you get new update from your gcms notes - you mentioned you order it every other week so I suppose you should get a new one by now? And, are you still going to order every other week until everything comes to an end?

Thanks for sharing where you did it. I hope I don't have to, but now I know where I should go if needed.

I ordered my gcms notes today. Hoping to get some insights into where the app has landed. Have multiple trips coming up in coming months.. have a feeling test might fall on the dates while I'm not around..

The address should be in the envelope, top left corner. Thanks for sharing your updates.

Only address mentioned at the end of the letter is 200-25 St Clair Ave East, Toronto. I think it is the same format for all.

Hello friends, hope things are going great with all of you. We had a full month vacation plan for February to visit our parents, later changed that to two weeks from feb 19th to mar 02nd to visit Dallas. I know it's very hard to give any suggestions as the situation may vary from case to case basis. I am wondering whether to buy tickets for that time period as I got fingerprint request recently. I am planning to buy at the end of this week just to make sure no request received by this time. Any thoughts?

Please drive safely. Thank you.

I would imagine the notes may be more or less similar to all those who are waiting. By the looks,test might only be around Apr/May for me.

Stay quiet and do not travel. That would be my best advice.
