Hi Everyone:

I received AOR on 13th June, 2019 and passed the medical on July 18th, 2019. It has been seven months but the status has not been updated. This is what the status looks like:

Review of eligibilityHelp - Review of eligibility
  • We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements.
Review of medical resultsHelp - Review of medical results
  • July 18, 2019 You passed the medical exam.
Review of additional documentsHelp - Review of additional documents
  • We do not need additional documents.
InterviewHelp - Interview
  • You do not need an interview. We will send you a message if this changes.
BiometricsHelp - Biometrics

Background checkHelp - Background check
  • We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information.
Final decisionHelp - Final decision
  • Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.
I also contacted IRCC through the web form last month and got the following reply:

====================================================================================================
Thank you for contacting Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

We verified the information you provided and can confirm that your application is still in process.

All the required documents and information have been received by the responsible office for the moment.

While the processing times may vary with each case, we will make all the necessary efforts to finalize your application as soon as possible.

Rest assured that you will be informed as soon as a decision is reached or if additional information is needed.

We hope the information provided is helpful in assisting you with your enquiry.
====================================================================================================

Could you please let me know what could be the reason for the delay in PPR. Does ordering GCMC notes help. Any help will be appreciated.

My AOR is June 12th, I contact IRCC by web form and they responded to that says that they need to do additional verification. and they have no idea when my file will be finalized. I have been getting speculations, but no conclusive response regarding what that means. I am hoping is a generic response. Can you say which Visa Office is handling your application?

Are you under SS? You should order notes to confirm this.

after 2.5 years since AOR, I received a ghost update today ... Let's see if it's actually a good sign.
What's your visa office? Did they ask for re-medicals twice as they normally expire after a year?

What????? Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry you've had to wait that long.
Here I was complaining about my 1year anniversary in 9days.
Was your application paper-based? Had comprehensive security screening?

No mine is online FSW-O and yes went through security screening since October 2017. :/

I am so sorry to hear this....
it took them so long to process the security check...is there any particular reason for that?
Not that I’m aware of, and they don’t share much when it comes to security screening. I don’t think anything should require 2.5 years though.

Does anyone know which stage my application is in? Since the eligibility section says "We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements", does this mean that my background check has not started?

Hi guys. I am new to the group and I passed the 6 months processing time a few days ago. I am from Syria and currently live in Europe and have a student visa ( not a refugee).
I was reading a lot of horror stories here and I want to ask how long it might take on average before I get new updates.

Every case could be different from other ones.
Ordering GCMS notes would be the first step to know where you are exactly. But it will take a long time to get them. probably up to 100+ days.
The best advice I could give is to be patient. No matter what you do, it will not speed up the whole process.

Good luck!

Hey

Do you think SS is now a little faster than back in 2017 and 2018? I'm going to join this 6 months+ club in 2 days' time.
