Yes because when he talked to IRCC phone they said there nothing wrong with his application. If it is wrong than they reject it but he should get result by now but no progress and if it is incomplete then they ask for required documents but no action on that even. In GCMS note the last update which is shown was in month of May
When was the last time you submitted a webform?

Did you all still pay for bio fee or not?
We are currently exempt, so am I just supposed to disregard the fee listed in application form and just pay for open work permit holder fee, and work permit fee?

(I am applying within Canada)

Copied from the website:



Biometric fee

If you meet one of the above 2 exemptions, you don’t have to pay the biometric fee when you submit your application, even if the system tells you to pay it.

If you paid the fee, we’ll automatically refund it once we finalize your application.

Hi all, my brother's PGWP was approved 6 weeks ago but hasn't received his physical/official copy of the PGWP yet. Is this waiting time to be expected these days? We're getting really concerned.

Asking because when my PGWP was approved a few months ago, the actual document took only just over a week to reach my doorstep.

Hey guys, I applied on January 10, today the application status changed from we received your application to we are processing your application. Does that mean I will get my answer in few days or I still have to wait for weeks or months.
Thank you for your answers.

Could be the holiday rush, call IRCC to inquire when it was mailed.

Hi did you also submit (later or initially) the official completion letter from the college/university or just the unofficial transcript ?

---------------------------------------------
(as per requirement)
All you need to apply for a PGWP is
  • an official letter from your school that confirms you’ve completed your study program, and
  • an official transcript, or a copy of your transcript from your school’s website.
--------------------------------------------

So were you able to get the official letter from school to submit later, or was that not needed ?
I think lots of people used unofficial transcript without a problem.

Thank you for your answers.
If they begin to review your eligibility then it will be just a few days to go but i don’t think this message is like that.
but dont worry too much. A lot of people submitted recently got approval in 2-3 wks
