Hello, I applied to sponser my husband in December, received AOR and medical request on Feb 23. Since then I am not able to link the file to gckey. Also, his background check was completed on April 9 as per the tracker. eligibility not started yet. Sponser eligibility is still not approved. Reading other people threads seems like sponser eligibilty got approved just after AOR. I am bit scared now. And no idea about OWP whether they start processing it or not. Anybody else here having same concerns?

I received AOR/Application number on May 10th, so I checked the status online and it’s say “in process” (application was received on Feb 21)

A refund in the amount of $215.00 has been initiated. If you paid by credit card, it will be credited back to your credit card account. Otherwise, a cheque will be mailed to you at the address indicated above in approximately six weeks to eight weeks.

More info needed:
1. How much did you originally pay?
2. How many people did you sponsor, and their relationship to you? (# Adults and #children)?

Hi all. Details of Military Service (IMM5546) is one of the additional country-specific forms for my country, but my wife does not have any military service background. Should she sign and upload the form even without any military service background, or it's not necessary. I am asking because if maybe the officer doesn't see the form attached to the application, ask for it.

Always better to include what they ask for, even if technically does not apply or is blank. You can include a short letter of explanation if you feel it's not clear eg "form is blank because did not do military service."

[Note that in some countries where compulsory military service is really universal and exceptions limited, may be best to note why did not do service. Don't know that it's required though.]

It is not uncommon for PA to get their AOR and UCI after the Sponsor, don't stress out too much that she has not received anything yet. They may not have all the details in their system yet in order for you to be able to link the application especially the fact your wife has not received the temporary application number (there isnt technically an application to link yet as it has not been started)

If they request Biometrics, Medical or anything like that (after PA receives application number) and the application has not yet been linked to a GCKEY account, they will know that, all communication is always sent to PAs email regardless or linking application to GCKEY. They only received the application 3 months ago so you are still very early on in the application. I was Inland common law which is typically faster than outland and i didnt get asked for medical till over 4 months.
You will both have a different UCI numbers.
Again, you guys are still very very early on in the process and nothing so far is out of normal process (what even is normal with IRCC) so you have noting to start worrying about, your wife should soon get her AOR and a temp application number, when that comes in, it can then be linked to the GCKEY but I do believe only one email (either PA or Sponsor) can link the application to their account.

Here is a good link for you that might answer a few of your burning questions
