Dear @legalfalcon I got my medical done last year on 04.09.2017 and PCC on 19.09.2017. Can I apply now with the same medical and PCC?
The medicals are valid for 1 year from the date the report is issued.

For PCC:

  • For the applicant’s current country of residence, the police certificate must have been issued no more than six months before the submission of the e-APR.
  • For countries in which the applicant no longer resides, the police certificate must have been issued after the last time the applicant lived in that country.
Given that your medicals is already old, you should get a new medical, because of it expires in the middle of your processing you will be asked to get a new medical.

For PCC se above.

Dear @legalfalcon,

I received my ITA on 18/OCT/2017 -- CRS score 436 (Lowest ranking score for that ITA)
My eAPR AOR date is 11/JAN/2018

I had my birthday after my ITA but before my e-APR.
Hence now if CRS is recalculated, it will reduce my CRS points below the lowest raking score for that ITA.
My query is that can this result in refusal of PR visa.

Hello @legalfalcon .

My AOR is 26th july, 2017. Over seven(7) months now. On 27th Feburary, 2018 my Status Change to IP2.

I sent an email to London visa Office on 20th feburary and i got the following Response on the same day:

Please be advised that your application is awaiting final review in our London office.

We thank you for your patience at this time. Rest assured we will contact if you if we require further information or additional documents.

Sincerely,

VCM

Please tell me:
1.What does it mean "awaiting final Review"?
2.What are the things done in final review does it mean that Eligibility/security etc have been done or are waiting to be done after seven months?
3. How Long is awaiting final review to PPR?

Your valuable insight will be highly appreciated. Looking Forward for your response.

Best Regards
Slmaan.
A final review is usually done when all stages are complete. But, it depends if security is concluded or not, so see your GCMS notes.

If all your stages are complete, then its just a matter of 1-3 weeks before you get your PPR.

These are internal transfers and requests to different agencies, which are cancelled and re-initiated. To know the in-depth details you will need CBSA report, but nothing to worry.

To give you an example when IRCC requests verification of criminal record from FBI, and FBI does not respond, then due to non-compliance the request is cancelled and re-initiated. This is just an example.
Would ircc hold the application if fbi does not respond? Or ircc has other ways to verify?

IRCC waits for a reasonable period of time and then confirms from it own sources. FBI always responds. It is when foreign ministries of some countries are contacted who never respond.

Hi legalfalcon,

May I ask your advise on the below?
My wife is a primary applicant. We recently submitted ou EE profile and expecting ITA by next drow (CRS 454).
In the spouse section, we have answered as “NO” for my work experience to avoid additional paper work with reference letters.
So all my work experience we will mention in the work history section once we receive the ITA.
The question is:
Apart from my work, I am also holding a small shares in 2 companies (7 % and 15%) in my country of origin. Do I have to mention my shareholder status somewhere?

Thank you for your help.

1- i teach British students and i said i grabbed their accent only but i was very good as i am self-taught before. and i said at the interview that in college many subjects were in English and since i was young i loved to read books and novels in English then she says never educated in eng.
You have to provide some concrete evidence. If you read the letter carefully they have asked for names of the people you have worked with, and other information, which you should provide.

2- in the notes they said that they are confused about my pic in PCC and ielts and they never mentioned medicals. they even showed me a big 4'' size pics of me in black and white for pcc, ielts and visa photo.
I haven't seen your pics so can't comment. However, if you have pics which are used in different IDs, you can produce them to meet this evidentiary burden.

3- about my employer it does exist and i was working online as a home based job and i was loging into our database and teach through an e-learning portal with campany subscription and it's used in many colleges and universities around the world. as this employer was my last one i left then in Jan 2017, they are offering limited papers as i left they don't want to share much.
Can you get any info? or get in touch with clients you taught etc?

4- i can get from my current employer a reference that i am working in there now .
-i provided some of my present clients numbers but old ones i don't have them not now or before - will provide reference from my current employer (not an online work but physical)
-i took new pics of me and will attach all ids i have ( driving-old college ones - medical) - will offer extracting new pcc or medical
- i came to know that my previous employer closed the business but they offered provide me with 1 tax report of theirs and official governmental closure paper to show that it's a registered company. is this enough?

No, you do not have to mention your shareholding anywhere. Also, if you answered no to the work experience, you will have to add all your work experience in the personal history.

Whatever you can add, do it. What suffices and what will be enough depends on the satisfaction of the IRCC officer.

Hello LegalFalcon
This GCMS was generated few hours after I went to IP2.

I'm in the same situation. I submitted my FBI PCC on Jan 30. With more than 4 weeks post submission, the status is still 'We are reviewing the additional documents you provided'.
I'm thinking the officer didn't get a chance to work on my file during the first few weeks (because my application is super old, aor March 2017)...but I don't know.
