May be your file has moved from CIO sydney to CPC ottawa in these 10 days, which is a good news

Hi,
1. How much time it takes for security background to be completed?
2. Files from CIC Sydney move to Ottawa once eligibility, criminality and security is completed?

I am a pnp-outland applicant with 22nd aug AOR

I called CIC just now, agent said they cannot give a exact timeline about my file, she said it may take 1 -2 months for the decision, still don't understand why security takes that long????

I dont have much idea. I got the respose that your background verification is under process and not clearly mentioned what is completed. But yes I guess my case is tranfered from CIO sydeney to CPC ottawa.

I got a ghost update yesterday, when i went in i saw my medical status changed from passed to "You do not need a medical exam. We will send you a message if this changes."
This is the first Ghost update since the last time when i passed medicals July 9th, 2019. I think my medicals was extended.

Since there is a change in the status of your medical exam, this is technically not a ghost update. It is a real update:) If your status changes back to pass, then it means they have extended its validity. Your current status means it is waiting to be extended.
Sounds about right. Thanks
Do you have an idea how soon i should expect the validity to be extended?

I have no idea as it may depend on the efficiency of the VO:) When was your eAOR? Why did your medical exam expire only half a year after it was passed?
My AOR was MAY 31st, it expired because my medical was done Dec 2018.

one question calling IRCC or raising webform more than one time before processing period (6months) exceeds, will affect adversely to your case?

Do you know what has caused the delay in processing your case?
I think my application was delayed because my Job Duties and Canadian Education was marked as "Review Required". I have provided an updated letter of reference with detailed job description and provided my Educational Transcripts as well, but i'm yet to get a feedback on that. I just ordered for another GCMS notes few days ago to know what progress has been made.
