On ecas status changed to Decision made...but on gckey nothing has changed. What does it mean? They didnt ask for my remed. Why?
congrats!! you are finally almost at the end of the line, gckey does not always update immediately, it may update in a few days. if it is DM and they have not asked for re-med there is a chance they may have extended your medical.

i noticed you had your interview on 12-sep. can you share your interview experience, i dont remember if you shared it before.

The LVO does not deal with anymore applications from Pak since Aug 18. All our applications goes to Nova Soctia now. For Pak it is now Abu Dhabi.
where did you find this information from about abu dhabi? please provide source.

I had posted the details of my interview. Frankly I am not positive about it cos at the end of the interview I asked VO if She will extend my medical. She said " If i decided to approve your application then I will send you an e-med request. So I wont be extending it".

No they didnt send PFL.
in my opinion, i think if the DM was going to be a bad one, you would have received a PFL before that. So stay positive, inshAllah you will get PPR soon.

Just wanted to clear something in regards to the debate we see often in this thread about have a Urdu nikkahnama being necessary,

it is not necessary. my nikkahnama was in English only, i did not have an urdu nikkahnama. LVO did not ask me for an Urdu one. i know they have asked before with other applicants so if you are getting married in the near future then get a urdu one and get a translation just to be safe.

however if you only have english nikkahnama now, dont worry, if they ask for Urdu you can simply send them a letter of explanation that in Pakistan both English and Urdu nikkahnama are official documents and that you felt more confident reading/signing an English document as you were able to understand it better, etc. more info: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/spousal-sponsorship-pakistan-london-visa-office.203899/page-2306#post-6476568

also, DO send voluntary communication logs, gift receipts, money transfers etc whatever you may have. send it every 3 months at least. you can send it via the webform or on LVO email LDNIMMIGRATION@international.gc.ca

get your wifes CNIC card updated to show Husbands name. you dont necessarily have to change the last name of your wife that is not needed.

also get the FRC after you have updated your records with nadra, they should show you as the "family head" and your wife under you. FRC is referred to as Family Booklet by CIC.

Guys! I am a newcomer to Canada (a PR) landed on April 19, 2018. My Spouse and two kids were included as unaccompanied in my application and obviously did not accompany me to Canada due to my personal circumstances. Now I am going to file spousal sponsorship and one of the requirements for that is to have notice of assessment or proof of income statement but I have not filed my tax returns as I landed on April 19, 2018, and got my first job in July this year. How should I explain this situation? Thanks in advance

you can get a proof of employment from your employer, it lists your title and company info and how much you get paid.

you can further attach a letter to explain why you dont have a notice of assessment same way you explained to us in your post.
