My IEC expired in October and I have not worked since then, I have now got approval for an OWP on MyCIC, do I use the SIN number I have had for the last 3 years or do I need to go and get another one?
You still have to go to Service Canada to get your SIN renewed. Passport + permit. I have done it thrice already since 2014 and I'm still using the same SIN.

Hello All,
I had a rejection for my spouse on outland application because I did not had enough paper for divorce from my ex. Which apparently i found out after i got asked about it during my spousal application. My first marriage was in India and i did not did any application for PR for my ex.
Now after rejection I applied inland as my wife was on TRV(luckily) after 8 months (it took that long to get proper document back home unfortunately) in Oct/2018 after remarrying here. wondering if it will be alright this time that we married again after i got divorce properly as per law back home.
any thoughts?

Hello Admin! Thank you for such a really great forum and helping so many people.

I have submitted my application under spouse Family Sponsorship. Everything is done and today I received an email from CIC saying that they have sent my file to London Visa Office.
I just want to know how long does the LVO take for further processing any idea???
What will be thier next step?

Any Dec applicant who still waiting the OWP to be approved ?
Wow! That's great news. Mine was received Jan 19, 2018. No change yet but will monitor.
So we just received our medical requests in our CIC account.... I am a Canadian citizen sponsoring my Australian husband and 3 young kids for PR... So I received 4 separate forms, one for each of them. Anyone know how much these things cost? is it around $300 each? There is no way we can manage that right now!!! We still haven't had a proper pay check (it's been around 10 months now) and our Child Benefits have still not been processed (we applied back in September!!). HELP! What am I supposed to do? I guess I'm just hoping someone will tell me it only costs $300 for all of them o_O
Depending where you are, I found a panel doc that does $220 all included. Not sure if kids are quoted differently.

I think you are Outland applicant, there is separate thread going on for London visa office. You can find better information there

Hi,

Just got a medical request but might need to extend the deadline.

How do I go about doing it?
What's your timeline please?

I think you have to send a case specific enquiry. It's explained on the aor letter (links and stuff).

Hey guys,

I am not sure if this means anything, but I ordered my GCMS notes and 3-4 days later I received my AIP. I reordered my GCMS notes again on March 13th and I saw DM on the 17th. I don't know for sure if ordering the notes triggered them to pick the file up or if its just a coincidence, however, I just want to share my experience because I know what it feels like.
Thank you, Melissaj! I followed your advice and ordered my GCMS notes on March 22. I also don't know what exactly helped, because the reviewing of application was already out of 1 year frame, but last Friday (Apr 06) we got DM on both ECAS! Finally some move!:)
The next great news that my husband received yesterday (Apr 10) SA, so I'm just waiting for AIP soon)

Mine took around a month
My deadline for them to receive it is the 20th, I guess I just have to trust that they got it by then or will they send me a confirmation that they got it ?

May 26th applicant here. Today my CIC online account has been updated and they finally started reviewing my eligibility. Hopefully, I will be receiving AIP soon.
This morning, I checked ECAS and for the first time, it has changed to 'Decision Made' from 'Application Received' for the applicant (me) and from 'In Process' for the sponsor (my husband) both! They started processing my application yesterday on April 10th.

That's awesome, congrats! Don't worry too much about it you will receive you eligibility letter very soon, you already have DM. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks since I am waiting for my landing appointment. Hopefully it comes soon.


Maybe its a coincidence that your application was approved without ordering the notes or maybe ordering the notes helped. I really don't know. But I think its best to order the notes because we have nothing to lose by doing so.
