This would likely have been regarding the sponsor approval so soon in the process. Try not to compare your timeline to others. They all vary for one reason or another. When the application advances you are sent message. If they need more info, you're sent a message. When they reach a decision, you're sent a message. I learned early on feom these forums to be patient. A lot happens fast when they start and thrn it slows to a crawl when they get to the middle. Other visa officea might be faster than others. Its a long process and you'll drive yourself crazy counting the days.

I think I should stop looking at these forums lol. When I go to the November 2019 outland threads, there are people way ahead of us almost getting their PPRs. Seems really unfair.
then do not watch December all the more :D

Hello all,
Got a question if anyone can help.
Upon submitting my husband's application, I helped him fill most of it, but I did not sign USE OF REPRESENTATIVE form for myself. Should I submit this form with my signatures? In case I were to call IRCC for information for his sponsorship.
Also, Authority to Release Personal Information to a Designated Individual (IMM5475) --- what is the purpose of this form as I did not include this form either.
My husband is a Sep 23rd applicant. Last update: Medical Received.

We did not fill up USE OF REPRESENTATIVE form as well. You need to do so, If someone, other than you and your husband needs to file the application. Since my husband submitted the application we did not use representative.

If you want to contact IRCC on behalf of your husband you need this form to be filled and signed from you and your husband otherwise IRCC will not share any information regarding the application to you, you can send it through Webform. I called IRCC before and my name is not included on there system as a representative so no one give me any updates or information

I did not send them the form i can check the status through our account and Ecase

As I understand it, this remains as is from the beginning until something changes with the status.
This has been the case on my gckey since I linked my account before my app was moved to the visa office for AOR2. Still waiting for that confirmation of receipt also.

Our file was transferred to Mississauga on December 6. Yesterday my wife got a letter requesting to submit a CV and IMM 5562 form (travel history) which had not been requested as part of the original application package. She submitted them this morning. Anyone else had requests for these?

The same letter also reminded her to get medicals done for her "non accompanying dependent" - the thing is, she has no dependents, so we sent a message via the webform saying that and asking for more details if something is missing. Anyone seen that before?

When I first linked my application to gckey that line said something like "We will let you know when we begin processing your background check." We got notice our app was moved to the Mississauga VO office on Dec 13th, and sometime between then and now it was changed to "processing background check." We haven't received any confirmation of receipt either, but I've heard Mississauga often doesn't send AOR2.

I hope that they really started processing. Same situation but with Warsaw VO. What is your status under PA in Ecas? Application received?
