What kind of documents did they want? Proof of cohabitation? From what I've seen there are some people who get requests for documents and then they get approved very quickly after that, so as long as you provide sufficiently what they requested it probably won't make things much longer.

I'm a September 26 applicant and have nothing since the medical request, so you shouldn't worry too much. Many October applicants are getting approved before September applicants because they're being processed at different offices (September mostly at Vancouver, October at Mississauga).
They asked for Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue. Other person told me that he send it with the appication and I didnt.

Vancouver was the processing center that contactme last wednesday and before that, I havent any update since medical passed.

Hard to say, but typically when they request additional documents, they give you at least a month to send them. Again, typically, they won't check your application until that delays expires. So it might indeed delay slightly your application, but not by much. This is assuming that IRCC will be satisfied with what you sent.

Yes, I was wondering the same, but the weird thing is that they told me to send it directly to an email account but I also did in MyCIc too.
For me, that was weird and they gave me only two weeks. That why I ask for advices, experiences...

What steps does it list under the Sponsorship Application side? For me I just have:
  1. We received your application to sponsor PA on September 26, 2017.
  2. We started processing your application on November 27, 2017.
I'm sure yours will be done soon once they get that final step done! Wonder what it could be though...maybe just a background check thing that's taking a while to process.
Under sponsorship application it says :
Decision made. When I click on it it says :
  1. We received your application to sponsor PA on September 26, 2017.
  2. We started processing your application on November 27, 2017.
  3. We sent you correspondence on July 27, 2018 about the decision on your application.
  4. We sent you correspondence on July 31, 2018 about the decision on your application

When I called them I said I never received anything on July 27 and they told me it's just a mistake they didn't send anything on the 27.

Under permanent residence application status it says :
Decision made. And when I click on it it says :

  1. We received PA's application for permanent residence on September 26, 2017.
  2. We started processing PA's application on July 24, 2018.
  3. We sent PA correspondence on November 28, 2017. If PA has not yet provided the information or the requested documents, please have PA do so as soon as possible. Please wait until PA receives the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required.
  4. Medical results have been received.

If it was just a NOA that was requested, I don't expect to really take long for them to check your document. They just wanted to make sure the sponsor had income and was not on welfare. So I would expect SA to come as soon as they open what you sent them.

Depending on your location, the invitation letters comes as soon as a week or as late as 6-8 weeks after DM. I would not worry for the moment. If within the next 2-3 weeks you don't get it, try calling IRCC. And if unsuccessful in contacting IRCC, contact your MP. But, give it another 2-3 weeks, I'm quite sure it will come within that timeframe.
Thank you for your answer ! I'll be patient then :)
I'm sorry I just don't know what is MP ?

MP: member of parliament

On the right, you enter your postal code and click "find MP".
Then a picture and the name of your MP will appear. Click on the name to get email and phone number to join his/her office.

This should be used only when you tried several time to join IRCC on your own and were unsuccessful. MPs have a direct line to talk to someone at IRCC, so the MP should be able to get an answer within few minutes.

My application was revived in April 2017 but they started to “process it in April 2018 and am still waiting
- they are still conducting my eligibility (for months)
-Medical passed

Is that normal??
