Try using Google Chrome.
My default browser is Brave, second try is chrome, both desktop and mobile, tried edge as well just in case because I know I never used it before. Cleared cache as well and it's been going on for at least 6 hours. Yes, I'm a software QA engineer. :p It's not working.

Hi guys, posting this here as it is one of the most active threads and hoping this could help others.

I finally received the RFV email yesterday after nearly 10 months post AOR!

Here is my full timeline:

Category: FSW Inland
CRS: 535
ITA: Jul 25, 2018
AOR: Sep 5, 2018
MEP: Sep 27, 2018
ADR: RCMP Certificate - Sep 27, 2018
Criminality: Passed - Dec 13, 2018
Eligibility: RR (POF) - Dec 13, 2018
Eligibility & Security: Passed - May 30, 2019
RFV: Jun 25, 2019

My advice based on my experience:
1) Order GCMS notes after 3-4 months post AOR and then once a month. This is how I learned that my eligibility had RR for POF for a missing bank statement.
2) Submit documents proactively to clarify your situation if you have RR on anything. I proactively uploaded the bank statement that was missing in my application and I believe that this saved me from an even longer wait.
3) Call IRCC and ask for a detailed status update regarding your eligibility, criminality and security regularly (every 2-3 weeks for me) after 6 months post AOR. Ask them to send a reminder to case agents if things are dragging along. My eligibility and security were passed about 4 weeks after a reminder was sent. Not sure if it is a coincidence or not but one thing is for sure: calling and asking to send a reminder did not hurt.
I think POF is not applicable for Inland applicants.

So basically, according to immitracker, they have cleared 77 percent of November applications... For September and October it is around 85% ... August is at 95% ... Expect 2-3 months of wait from this date.... And we cannot do anything about it as we have passed 6 months and we are no longer the priority....
Damn... talk about accepting the truth as a bitter pill to swallow

Thank you.. Eligibility says met.. But there is an RR for current employment.. Although my previous two employment suffice the crs score.. What do u suggest. Also previously I submitted an affidavit stating the reason that the company doesn't issue ref letters.. Will it conflict.?
Thanks
Wait and watch, if you get an ADR, then only respond else wait for the officer to make it clear, or he might just call the employer to confirm.

Hello Friends
Got RFV today. Some specs of our application are:
FSW-O India + a lot of residence in Africa + startup kind of own works. Our largest effort was in translating African PCCs into English.
CRS 454
Funds: more than enough, but mostly MFs
PA+Spouse+Kid (Masters MBA Degrees for spouse and myself)
No consultants / agency

AOR 28 Nov 2018
MEP 08 Jan 2019
ADR 1 12 Jun 2019 (we replied, but messed up the details; raised a CSE to inform IRCC about the mess we made)
ADR 2 20 Jun 2019
RFV 27 Jun 2019

My unsolicited advice
1. To reduce total time of the process: one must get the IELTS + PCC + ECA done in parallel. I know of no other way that's better. There is nothing to be optimized after AOR.
2. Never stop your life for this. We stopped for this, so did others, and regretted. Wouldn't make this mistake again.
3. The 180 day counter on your login is a bluff; and it would be better if it wasn't there.
4. Avoid consultants. There's nothing you can't do yourself, there's no one who knows your case better than yourself, there's no one who can express your case better than yourself.
5. If at all you have to pray, pray to Chuck Norris.

We'd be likely making a 15 day stop this year before the medical runs out; to decide specifics of permanence there. And likely thereafter in 2020 before school starts for our young one.

My best wishes to you
