Hi,

We sent in two different packets. There are other forum member who sent in same packet and also reported to having received one AOR as well.

My theory is that they just entered one application into the system and bundled the other one as it await processing. Another theory is that it is sent to different officer and it hasn't begun processing. Either way, we should receive some sort of update closer to 2-3 months mark for decision.
I hope the bundle hypotheses is true. Let’s wish for the best.
Please keep the thread posted if there is any development, I will also do the same.

Application received: Mar 11
AOR: Mar 31
DM in ecas: Mar 31 [updated next day, no date in ecas]

We've got 3 out of 4 AOR emails, but could successfully link all 4 applications in gckey and ecas shows them all. Sent in one package.

Is this for initial or renewal PR?

How were you able to track the 4th application for which AOR is not received?

I guess because in this case the application was actually registered by the agent, it appeared in the system.

So what I did:

1. I tried to link it in gckey but using options without the application number, because I didn't have it. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/account/link-paper-online.html

It was successfully located and linked on the same day of AOR for others. At this point I had the application number and should be now receiving updates for it to the email as well. (if the reason for missing AOR was wrongly typed email address)

2. On the next day, I checked ecas, and the application appeared there without any action on my end. Ecas is only updating on next business day morning, so be patient. I already used it for other applications (using UCI as identifier), so didn't have to try different options of identifiers, etc.

Response with links waits for moderator review. Here is a copy without the links.

Thank you. Per CIC processing timeline - currently it is 108 days for most applications, so you're right on the money.

So im trying to link my app to GCkey and realized by AOR does not have an application number . Did everyone else’s have the application number ? does it start with a letter or how many numbers are in it
