Finally, Ecas says Decision Made, but my CIC still says Background is in process and we will send you message when we start your background check.......
Same happened with us Yeti. One Friday got the prearrival services letter and following Monday got the PPR. And the ECAS was saying decision made when we got the pre arrival services letter. You should expect PPR next week for sure.

Tina - Since when it changed to processing your background check & what it said before ??

Our background says :
Your application is in progress. We will send you a message when we start your background check.
Sorry i do not remember when it changed to in process. It has been a few months now.

Medicals passed since October 2016

You don't need a medical exam
Fingerprints: Required & submitted December 2016, but since end of 2017 it says no need for fingerprints
Background Check: In process (since December 2016)
Additional documents required. We will send you a message (for 2/3 months)

Whenever they sent something, it was always "we need X submitted within 30 days" followed by 12+ months of absolute silence. :mad:
