Who told you that? Not sure where you got that infornation from. Eligibility is one of the first things that the officers pass, after which they start your criminal and security checks. My wifes eligibility was passed in October.
My husbands criminality and medicals passed, but eligibility is recommend passed. From where you got the eligibility info may I ask?
Also, I am not talking about sponsor eligibility, that passed long back.
