Hello,

I'm a bit confused. The cic account says the following:

Review of eligibility
  • We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements.
Review of medical results
  • November 21, 2020 You passed the medical exam.
Review of additional documents
  • November 6, 2020 We are reviewing the additional documents you provided.
Interview
  • You do not need an interview. We will send you a message if this changes.
Biometrics
  • November 13, 2020 Completed.
Background check
  • We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information.
Final decision
  • Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.
Meanwhile, I recieved an invitation to pre-arrival services and was emailed by ircc and have submitted my passport. Does this mean that a decision has been made and the visa was approved? The subject in the e-mail is Ready for Visa. Please enlighten me.
If they have asked for passport that means your visa is approved and maybe they haven’t updated your account yet. Did you try using online tool?

Many applicants are getting their PPR who have applied in March and some from June as well. My application still shows processing background check and waiting on final decision from more than a month. Is someone else waiting on the same??
Which VO did your file go? Also, timeline?

Did you do biometrics? That usually holds up decision made

The application status will change to "approved" once they stamp a visa in your passport

No, I also got pre-arrival services a month ago and then they asked for additional documents. No DM yet. I think pre-arrival services was generated as part of the process but the DM wont come until they decide you are approved as PR.

I got very excited too and thought DM/PPR would come right after...very close but not there yet.
