If your passport is about to expire, you should immediately renew it and update IRCC. This is advantageous for the following reasons:Hi @legalfalcon
My AOR is of October 19th. Now my passport will expire on October 1st, 2020. Now, should
1.) I wait for my PPR & then make a new passport later after landing?
2.) Should I now right away renew my passport and then update via webform asap? or
3.) I should wait till March for PPR & if I don't get it then I submit it via webform? [will updating my info using webform so late can cause any problem?]
Pls advice Sir about which option above should i follow to avoid any delays and confusions in my processing. thanks
You will have to send an email to getgcms to get the latest update. As regards applying from another website, it is your choice. The GCMS notes are released by IRCC and are subject to Access to Information Act. Any information relayed is subject to Privacy Act. No information sent is incomplete, only personal information is redacted. For any specific information, you can contact GET GCMS.Dear Sir, the mail which getgcms has mailed to candidates is incomplete due to privacy reasons. Can you please tell when getgcms is expecting resolution for the delay in gcms notes, I have already crossed 46 days. I am planning to apply from gcms buddy now.
If your passport is about to expire, you should immediately renew it and update IRCC. This is advantageous for the following reasons:
1. The PR visa will not be issue to you beyond the expiry date of any of the PP of the individuals on the application. So it is always better to have a passport that is valid for a longer duration.
2. Your PP will be your identity document when you land in Canada. You will need it initially for all your initial settling things and the last thing you want is sending your PP and having to wait for a few weeks to renew it. So better do it now.
After you get your renewed passport, you can send the scanned copies to IRCC via webform.
Heartiest congratulations and thank you for your kind words. All the best for the journey ahead!
@legalfalcon I have asked this question on the forum, but would highly appreciate your input.@legalfalcon I have inadvertently deposited $11,000 cash in my salary account which is around 60% of my entire POF. Doing some late research, I found out that depositing cash is an absolute terrible idea. My father recently sold a property so I can show a sale deed along with gift deed. However, the sale deed is not in English language and I don't want to open a new can of worms by showing it. More so, because the payment I am using was a part of cost paid in cash so the amount didn't go to my father's account first.
I can now take the cash out, deposit it in my father's account and have him transfer it the right way. But the VO will see the $11,000 fumble in my account prior to gift money coming in. I heard getting a new account is also a bad idea.
Plan B: May be once I have an ITA, I will arrange another $11,000 and route it through my dad's account. That will take my account to $11,000 excess POF but the cash deposit will still be there.
P.S: I am expecting an ITA soon so there is no way to showing a 6 month ageing.
If you cannot meet the 6 months average balance requirement, you can show the funds though a gift deed.
Dear Sir, since you were busy last week, in anticipation I have done upfront re-medical with logic that it might trigger my case. My case is post ppr divorce and its been 3 months I have submitted divorce decree. Since honourable Mr. Ralph confirmed eligibility, criminality and security passed on September first week. I was curious for re med request, also now days re med request are getting delayed from cic end. Therefore I took this step of upfront re med.There is no point getting a new meds until asked for. IRCC can in its own discretion extend you meds. Usually after the processing of the application and any additional documents is complete, and during the final review the decision on the meds will be made.
There are many websites that claim a lot of things. While it is entirely your choice what you wish to do.Dear sir one more query, earlier I applied notes from getgcms which are delayed, is it true of I apply again from getgcms only one set will be released depending upon their process.
However If I apply through different service provider than I will get 2 sets, one from getgcms and other from second service provider.
While doing websearch I found a website visa info which provides fast gcms service, they made below mentioned claim, are they reliable, is this service relevant.
With Fast GCMS option only the officer's notes from your visa file will be requested.
Typical GCMS notes include 40 to 200 pages of information of little importance. By law not all information can be released to the requesting party. Certain information has to be withheld due to privacy and security considerations. Every GCMS request is examined by an officer page by page to identify information that is exempt from release.
With Fast GCMS request an officer has to review just a few pages instead of dozens and hundreds, which can typically reduce the processing time.
Choose Fast GCMS if you only need to understand the officer's arguments and reasoning, for example if you need to know why your application was refused.
