Just wait. It is normal and the same for everyone. Approval comes first,then wait patiently to get your passport back.My application was approved yesterday. I saw the visa and counterfoils details yesterday through my online GC key account. Today i received an email from CIC that application is updated. When i logged in and checked it was no different from yesterday's status. Anybody faced this before? Passport is still with them. Wondering if we would get this before despatch?
When they mean application is approved, it's the PPR email they have sent based on file. Actual approved status will be changed in GC key after visa and COPR has been printedCalled IRCC this morning, they say that the application has been approved but documents have not been printed. Though I can't see anything on the online portal. Is that normal?
Passport received at CPC-Ottawa: 15th July
Application approved: Presumably 25th July (no updates on the portal)
Return tracker activated: awaited
