Have you made your account by yourself?
Or your lawyer made it for you
Lawyer for me, and she has control of it. R u worried they didn’t receive your biometrics? I think u can call them to confirm they did or through gckey, on mine it says when it was completed.

One more question please. I applied from canada, but i have to travel to romania in a few weeks. If i receive the biometrics letter can i give biometrics in romania or i have to come back to canada? Thank you so much
There is no biometrics place in canada. Inland applicants don't do biometrics. But you also aren't allowed to leave Canada so....going to Romania is dangerous for your app if you are. Unless you are the Sponsor or applied outland from canada???? Sponsors don't do biometrics...It's for the PA. You would be able to do biometrics in Romania if there's a visa office there. Otherwise go to the closest one. If in canada, you have to cross the border to do it.

The update is like biometric done not updated on ECAS
May be u are right so according to your estimation how much time will it take ?
It takes a couple of days. It's not something that gets approved. It's just done. It shows up as completed in GcKey. You're worrying too much. This can take 12 months and you rarely hear from them, rarely see an update in your account. They tell you to expect this all over their site. Even if you are on GcKey and ecas, things approved aren't listed. We all just wait for emails.

Yeah because this 12 month is an estimated time not the exact some get approved before that some takes longer time than usual

That's why I said, "can take 12 months." My point is, we are all waiting for these emails to know what's really going on. Every case is different. Being in GcKey and ecas isn't even helping because they don't always reflect everything that's going on with your app. Like, I know eligibility is approved on mine but it says, "in process." It's just the biggest waiting game ever

No interview
Thank you for encouragement atleast
No i have not been scheduled for any interview
So i am praying now i hope i will get a positive response
One more thing why the ECAS is not updated ?
Ecas won't show completion of Med and Bio. You just need to sign up for GC key and then you are going to be able to link your application to there.

Hi! Searching for clarification. Here is our situation. I am the principal applicant living in montreal. My husband is living in toronto. Obviously, we are not yet living together in one roof. Its because i am still in contract with my employer. I am a caregiver holding a valid work permit. Some says, we are not allowed to apply under spousal sponsorship under canada class because we are not yet living together in one roof or same address. Some says, we can apply under family class. But to my understanding, family class is made outside canada. That the principal applicant is living outside canada. My question is that, since my husband and i are both here in canada but not yet living together in one roof/same address since i am still in contract with my employer, what class of sponsorship are we gonna fall? We’re about to submit our application next week but still confused on what classification are we gonna apply? Please help us. Thanks

You're married so you apply for family sponsorship as a married couple. You can apply inland or outland even while in canada. Drawback to inland is PA has to remain in canada for the duration of the application processing and it tends to take longer.

Not sure how they'll feel about you not living together within canada.

If we can apply inland or outland since both of us are here in Canada, what is our classification? Thanks
