Not necessarily..they move the file due to workload distribution and that can happen during any stage of an application..u can contact LVO through webform or through email..
Thanks for your reply... Usually how long do they take to process Applications?

Can’t say for sure in these days..my application is in process since January 2019 but my issue is that my application is under comprehensive security screening..

Dear @legalfalcon, I'm pnp-o candidate (aor 30.03.20) processed by London VO. It seems my case is stucked in LVO because of some administrative delays. As GCMS shows, after case processing analyst review (recommended passed) - the officer review is pending since 07.07.20, security&criminality are not started yet (biometrics completed on the 07.07.20, rprf paid at the same day). Would you be so kind to let me know- if there is any effective way to remind the officer about my case (except webform- since LVO doesn't react on it). Or should I just wait patiently - come what may? Thank you in advance for your kind support

I am in very similar situation - Been waiting for over 8 months and NOTHING. I have tried sending a webform and got a generic response "your file is awaiting review"

I actually called CIC in Canada, and somehow the employee I spoke too was able to access my account (usually they do not have access to outland files).

He told me that the same officer has been opening my account since April 2020, once a month and pushing the Due date by one month. He has done that a total of 6 times so far.

Without having the full picture of why they are doing this to my application, this seems to be extremely irresponsible thing to do - This individual does not know the extent of how his actions are affecting my life and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.

Patience is all we have!

Administrative delays are common and more so ate the level of LVO. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done to expedite the process. You can send webform on periodic basis, request GCMS notes and wait.

Some VOs are worse than others and London VO is known fo such delays even pre-COVID.

Hi YCH,
our timelines are a bit similar, but it seems your application is ahead of me, despite my AOR being 22nd Feb 2020. I really wish this situtaion gets over!!

Wow! Many congrats! Did you have any GU before the ppr? What was your latest background check - "in progress" or "we are processing your bgc"?
