I meant that the final decision is usually made 1 to 3 days after Eligibility review starts and the biometrics correspondence letter is received. Receiving the biometrics correspondence letter simply means that the biometrics you submitted is still valid and as far as I know, has no bearing on the outcome of the application.
What about those who cannot submit biometrics bc of COVID -- I know we're exempt for now, but how does that affect processing times?

Applied Sept 18. Today I got an email that there was an update to my application, when I checked it now says "We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements. " and also sent me a correspondence letter confirming my bio-metrics

When can I expect to receive approval?
Friday or next week.

I don't think that has an effect on the processing time. A friend who submitted on September 14th without biometrics got approved yesterday.

Hey guys
How long does it take for physical copy of pgwp to come to your address. I’m in BC and it has been 15 days
Hey there, I applied from BC(Burnaby) as well, and I received my PGWP hardcopy in a week. It’s sent from Edmonton. But I believe normally it takes 2-3 weeks.
