I have the same status as yours, except for the medical. It's been a month and there's no update apart from reviewing of eligibility.

Yes it will be 6 weeks on the 29th, but I submitted it almost on weekend plus it was the Saudi National Day after that, so I guess it reached their office by 23rd of Sept. The calculation of processing is by the time it reached the Canadian Embassy. I am also a Filipina, on visit visa under my husband's name. The only update is "reviewing of eligibility" as well. Let's wait and see, they might have update for us by next week because technically we roughly have the same timeline.

Yes, true! Hoping and praying for a good outcome next week. Please update if there's any news on your application. I also linked my application on GCkey, almost a week after I submitted (tried linking after more than 5 attempts).

Hi there,
I have also applied for a study permit from Riyadh (online application). Here's my timeline:

August 15: Submitted application (medical done upfront)
August 16: Biometrics request
August 18: Biometrics done
August 19: Status updated- Medical passed and biometrics completed

Since then, no updates.
Contacted them through webform, said they were doing additional verifications and would take time outside of posted processing times, so I am waiting patiently.

It's been more than 2 months since you submitted your application. My biometrics is not updated on the CIC account but I have done biometrics upfront since I submitted it in person.

So am I, we both did the paper application but on our biometric status it doesnt appear that we did it. They supposed to put “completed” or biometric done.

They just put my biometrics number on the bottom of the page but not completed on the 'biometrics' section.
