Thanks.. Saw that too although the poster didnt go into much detail..that's all I could find on it too.

Agree! Had that same conversation with my partner tonight. Fair enough sending it back if you've made a huge error or multiple.. But for a small error or discrepancy it makes no sense to return it.

Very interested as to whether I have missed something or its just a good old confusing way to say I will have to submit my police cert and schedule A.
Yeh lets us know what happens! Obviously they are processing the app with med requests etc.

Outland must be different to inland for Schedule A request? We got the request right after we linked the account with GCkey, both emails saying account was linked and another saying was a message in account (about Schedule A) came in one after the other, like it was automated after the linking.

I still never got any sponsor AOR, but can log into ecas OK with my details and the app number.

Update: Application received on October 26, AOR1 received December 12.

I'm having trouble linking my paper application to my online account. is there a thread or something that addresses common issues or some other resource that might help me?

Thanks for the reply. I followed your guidelines as they applied to my situation and still am not having any success. Now I've exceeded my daily attempts and need to wait 24 hours. I sent an message to them through their report a technical issue button and hope that I get a response. I don't think I should expect any responses anytime soon.

You can use another account to link. fill exactly information that you filled form IMM0008 (include space end if applicable). Goodluck.

When my GCKey account was locked for 24 hours and I called they told me to wait OR create new GCKey and try to logging with the new GCKey and the same account number...

Guys,i just found out i made mistake on my Travels form IMM5562,haven't mentionned all my travels Ouch,like i visited Italy over 10 times but i mentionned only 3 times,also in Schedule A Form background check,i mistaken on my father's birthday,just the day he were born in September 7th but i wrote September 10 Ugh!!! ,what i should do? should i inform them and how?
My opinion: make contact with them explain the truth that you have mistaken and want suggestion from them. It's better if them allow you to submit the form again.

I got a reply from them already. They said that possible issues might be:
· Your application hasn’t been entered into our system yet (paper applications)
· The information you have entered is different from what you submitted on your application
· An immigration representative is handling your file
· Our online system could be down

I know it's not any of the last three options so it might be the first. I'll try again later but even that first option seems unlikely. I imagine that the system is what sends the AOR since the AOR is an automated message. If worse comes to worst I can still send them another message but with screen shots.

I am a October 27th applicant. Expecting mine in a day or two now. Hopefully wait ends for us soon.
Anymore updates from late october applicants?
