Hey guys, any fsw-o applicants with Ottawa VO got an update to their application in the last couple months? Last updates I've seen were in mid-February but nothing since.

Just called IRCC and got the following details;

Eligibility - Passed
Criminality - In Progress
Background Check - In Progress
Security - Not started
CEC Inland (AOR 15th Oct)

@legalfalcon is it mandatory to be physically present in Canada when Criminality, BG and Security in progress? I came home to India for vacay since April and is this going to delay the process and approval?

You do not have to be in Canada during the processing of your application. You are free to travel anywhere you wish and it has no impact.

However, currently IRCC is only issuing COPRs to applicants who are physically in Canada. If you do not intend to return to Canada, you should change your address on file with IRCC.

thanks for the info @legalfalcon, I'm planning to return by the end of June and hopefully the processing also should move along as you have mentioned it doesn't impact the progress. I haven't informed IRCC regarding my vacation / travel through the webform, would that be a problem?

If you went on a vacation, there was no need to inform as you are not charing your country of residence. Given that you did inform that you will not be in Canada, make sure that after your return you update IRCC.
