I honestly got kind of worry when i read that VOC will open until next year, so i emailed Mexico asking for an update i got pre-arrival services and decision made on June 5th so I'm really hoping to have Christmas with my WHOLE family this year. Anyway to my surprise they answered the same day and confirm that my application was approved and the next step will be to request the passport and it hasn't been done because of the restrictions. But what they did told me is: "We have added your file to a list of files to be finalized from within Canada as services there resume." I'm thinking since Mexico is still closed and there are so many application they are assigning them to different offices. So finger crossed this will end soon for all of us....

That is good news. That must be why I'm seeing Bogota in my notes. When it opens....to send passports there would take half the time

We just got a biometrics letter. (Apparently our file was marked with our biometrics fee unpaid even though we paid the fee and sent proof over a year ago when they first asked for it and then resent the reciept in December when they wanted us to pay again). Our MP sent us a letter on Friday telling us that our file still shows our biometrics fee unpaid, so we sent a 3rd copy of the reciept, both to our MP and to Mexico. We got a personal reply back that our payment has now been applied to the file and they sent the biometrics letter.

My question is this... is the file now on total hold until the biometrics are done, or is there other work they can do on the file to expedite it along in the meantime? In other words, have they progressed us to a dead end? The principal applicant's Venezuelan passport expires in November and they cannot leave Venezuela on an expired passport.

Is it possible for them to make a decision prior to the biometrics? Or is biometrics the only next step?

Click apply. If you need any help on what to select feel free to message me. I wouldn't recommend asking for notes unless you are at least 9-12 months in otherwise you likely won't get much info
I am the sponsor, how do i fill up this form to request the notes? It says , are you requesting on your own behalf. I guess yes, and then select sponsorship application and put my own UCI number and application number which is same as file number?
Select electronics officer notes ?

Yes and I believe you need to do a representative form if you are the sponsor. I had to anyway as the sponsor

Selection for GCMS notes


Immigration refugees and citizenship
Canadian citizen
Enter the info
yes requesting info on own behalf
Member of the public
Email
Access to information act
Immigration/citizenship records
Fill out spouse info
Family class, spouse or common law
Immigration file
Status update/reason for refusal/
Then continue to pay the $5


Consent form: imm 5744

https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/ircc/migration/ircc/english/pdf/kits/forms/imm5744e.pdf

I think this is the correct way. This is what I did to receive the last 4 times. But even though I was the sponsor they required a signed representative sheet from my wife even though we included one with the initial application. It gives you a chance to attach documents just do it then. It is good for 6 months I think....so I just continued to use the same each time

Thanks for your reply, we are 13 month into the process today. I have another question, at the time we submitted our application we included form IMM 5475 (Authority to release personal information to a designated individual), I am the sponsor and the designated individual, the application for the notes requires a consent form IMM 5476 to be submitted, so my question is do I have to submit that new form 5476?
Thanks

My wife will repass the Medical Exam they need to finish the file on Saturday !

Damn period at the wrong timing haha

For those who didnt know , for medical the PA (if it's a women) need to have finished her "period" since 5 days , nor before as some lab won't be accepted like pee exam and such.

Yes. I did the same and still had to submit. Look a few posts up. I explained in detail everything you need to do.

The form you need is imm 5744.

great! Well if it's already been done the last year... i mean unless the situation has been really worse it's fast to renew this...
Just the fact not to need interview and eligibility completed is a plus !

that would be such a good gift to be all done with this process.

That right the form is 5744.
In my case my wife has a daughter and t te he form requires both parents to approve by signing the form and we can submit a separate for each parent now my question is where to input her father information under 2. applicant’s information or 2.1 related individual‘s information
thanks Mitch 55555 for your help
