I had ghost update. From submitted to application updated and back to submitted again. and thats it. No email or messages on my Gckey account
I also received a ghost update this morning. I logged in into my account and the status bar says "Profile/Application Updated" and it went back to "Submitted". This is my second ghost update but the Review of Additional Documents still says - We have received the additional documents you provided.

Not sure what's next to be honest.

I don’t think so, my wife has never provided her biometrics before. I also heard that VFS is requiring PPR as well for clients showing up for Biometrics, maybe it’s the new process?

It could also depend on the VFS she's dealing with. As far as I know, they need her biometrics for security check but maybe because of the pandemic, they'll just send her an instruction letter when she gets her PPR.

It is unusual they have not requested it. What does it show in GCkey regarding the biometrics?

I just hope so that would be the case;)

I know, usually Medical & Biometrics Request are sent together if not a few days or weeks apart.

Just shows this:

  • We do not need your fingerprints. We will send you a message if this changes.

That line in the system is seemingly always wrong. The bio request will come soon enough.
