I hope you are doing well. I was reaching out to you because I read that your BWOP was recently approved and I had some questions about the application. Hope you could help.

Scenario:

MY PR application is in progress, I have completed my Biometrics and Medical. I am currently on PGWP which ends in June 2021. I am currently working with over an year of experience in my field.

Questions:

1. Before we receive a list of forms- there are a series of question which includes ""Do you have a written job offer Letter" - Will it be YES or NO? I have gone through the forums and some say YES as I am currently working but some say NO as a written work permit refers to "LMIA letter" which I do not have

2. In the forms IMM 5710 - Section 1 - Question 3 is "I am applying for one or more of the following" - 1. Apply for WP under the same employer OR 2. Apply for a WP for the first time or with the new employer. (I dont think the rest if 2 options apply to me)

3. In the section "Details Of Intended work in Canada" I have read same stuff online that says If we select an "OPEN Work Permit" in the first question - Then Question 2 to 7/8 should be left blank - Is this it? Cause for some answers I saw it says we should give them that information

Please let me know. Thankyou so much in advance.
I am on an IEC visa and got my BOWP by answering:

1. NO (I don't have an LMIA, even if my boss could write me a letter)

2. SAME EMPLOYER (I still work for my company, even though I might lose/change employment in the future)

I don't remember my response to 3. As long as you add a LOE to your application and make it clear you're applying for PR and not trying to get a job with an LMIA, they'll accept it.

I had a very fast turn around. Applied, got accepted a week later and it arrived in the mail just 4 days after.

I am also accompanying spouse and 2 kids. Feel like that family processing need more time.
BTW, how you know that Eligibility and BGC is in processing ? Does your application status indicate "in process" ?
Yes, both are in process.. but my medical is worrying me as it says you don't need a medical exam??

Hi, so a ghost update (a real one) simply means that your application is under some changes which could be super small changes or could be something as big as passing processing stages (MEP, criminality etc.). As an applicant, one is curious to know if there is progress in the application, and a GU usually means a positive step towards approval. People have gone as far as "decoding" what GUs mean depending on when they were received based on average experiences of applicants (see: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/application-stages-what-they-mean-mep-ip1-ip2-ghost-update-version-2019.612656/). In conclusion, a GU is generally deemed as a good sign, but there is no absolute/official meaning of GUs. Hope that makes sense and good luck :)
Thanks!

What’s the difference between criminality and security? Are not both tied only to the police certificate?

Can we request India PCC without ITA these days? You must have PCC before you got the ITA?
