Hi, I am sure you must be calling CIC within Canada and if your file is being processed outside of Canada they can not really tell you if LVO really needs something from you or not. I really hope that this is just a system glitch but if LVO needs something then we should contact the LVO directly. Can anyone else support us on this message? or are we the only 3 people who are seeing this update?
Yes I was calling from Canada and my LVO is Ottawa, but the call center is not the same as the LVO so it might not have access to all the info
I also emailed LVO Ottawa and confirmed that they don't need any more documents
I am hoping to hear good news soon as I fear having to redo the medical

Hi - Garry 1263, MANU07, Singhraminder, RegPrav,

Thanks for your reply guys. Guess we all are more or less in the same boat with no clue as to what is the next action to be taken by NDVO ?

Could you share which respective dates your medical got expired - very strange not to receive any communication for the next step ? Hope some officer is working on ours respective files ? Our medical is expiring in the next 40 days as well.

Let's hope for the best guys !!!

Don't think we can do anything here except WAIT. Thank you to all.


I am in the same boat too. Medicals expiring August 20th. No info from NDVO at all ...

Hello,

Today on myCIC I noticed status for "additional documents are required please check your message" has changed to "We need more documents to continue processing your application. We will send you a message with more details"
I noticed people saw additional documents message earlier and contacted CIC to which they said its a system glitch and not to worry about it.
Can anyone tell if they are seeing this updated message?

Is there any update about if background check started or not ??

S

Thank you for sharing your perspective. My file has been saying the same thing about needing an additional document since January. We completed the medical in December and had sent them the PCC before that. After I got confirmation that they have received medical results, I called to figure out what additional documents is needed and the call center agent told me she does not know what I am talking about. She explained that she does not see the info in the format that users see. She advised me at the time to follow up with LVO. I filled out a case specific webform and they replied saying that they have received my medical and police certificate and will let me know if they need anything else. I have not heard from them and the status has remained the same. I will let post here if I get any requests for other docs.

Is there anyone here who still has access to E-CAS? It appears from some posts that it is still accessible to some people. I am curious to know what the situation is for you guys and the ones who do have access to E-CAS what options they choose on drop down list?

Review of additional documents: The additional documents you provided have been uploaded. "this is new"
Interview: You do not need an interview. We will send you a message if this changes.
Biometrics: We do not need your fingerprints. We will send you a message if this changes.
Background check: We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information. "this is new"
Final decision: Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.

And in E-CAS, it shows 'Decision Made', date changed was 28th July

I believed it is approved and make the rest of the process complete smooth and fast

Thank you . your confirmation was helpful. I tried one more time and this time clicked on "online tool" under paper applications. I kept thinking that the the immigration part of the application was done online and it was not a paper application but the sponsorship portion of it was a paper application so I suppose that makes the whole application be categorized as paper application . so it all makes sense now. No updates on my ECAS, it still only says "medical results have been received". Thank you again.

I have been asked to resubmit Schedule A forms for both the parents (because of missing details) via CPC-CTD-Ottawa email.
They have mentioned as "bearing an original signature" and send it to our office. I am not sure how do I send this document via email (scanned copy) or mail the original document?

Do anybody know the mailing address of Ottawa office?

Thanks
