Background Check taking more time than usual






Congrats @knighthood83. Patience was the key I believe. Can you please share your Country of residence and your nationality?


Nationality - Indian


Congrats @knighthood83. Patience is indeed the key I guess :slight_smile:
No status updates in between medicals and “background check started” right?


Ya none. After medicals I got the ppr nothing in the between. All the best to you as well. Hope things work out soon


Thanks man! Yea I am at the 3 month mark so getting antsy. Guess just gotta wait it out…


I got my PPR email yesterday. below is my timeline:

ITA - 13 June
AOR - 30 July
IP1 - 23 August
PPR - 15 October

The status changed to “background check has started” which triggered email. Based on the reported experience and timelines of other people, I assumed mine would take a while but I was surprised yesterday.

Hi Guys,

I’m an Indian National living in AU.

My AOR was 1st June 2018.
Medicals got done on 14th June 2018 and the background checked started on the 15th October 2018.

I checked my Junk Mail and my inbox for PPR but nothing yet. My csr score was / is 478.

Any leads or updates will be appreciated!


Any update on your application?


For me, back in 2017, it took 4.5 months from AoR to PPR. Technically CIC is supposed to evaluate applications in 6 months. So if it’s been 6 months since you got AOR, I wouldn’t worry much, and attempting to contact them will not be useful. The only exception is if you have to leave your current country of residence, and/or there is a significant change in your circumstances (getting married, having a kid etc), is when you should contact CIC.



do you know from what date does the the 2 years out of 5 years rule start… I mean the 5years start from what date…

From Medical date?
From Approval date?
From first landing date?
From the date PR Cards are issued?
Some other date?


Landing date.

Oh Okay thank you for the update- how long did it take to get the medicals passed
