Post ITA processing time


#1

Can some one who applied for E-APR (Post - ITA) list their processing times? Specifically, from the time you submit your docs post-ita to the time the PR gets final approval. I understand that the average is 6 months but just looking for timelines from those who applied in 2nd half of 2017 and 2018.

This is from 2016. From final application submission to CoPR and PR visa it took 4.5 months.

Hey Guys…

Once we submitted the application and paid fees then how many days does it take to move to next status?
currently it is showing “submitted”… what would be next possible statuses?


#4

I did not get any status change till “medical cleared” and the immediately I got PPR and then approved while passport was with them.


#5

so you mean the number of days between your “medical cleared” and “PPR” were very less?

Also, do we get this kind of email?
“Got the email notifying about Acknowledgement of Application Received (AOR): 06 July 2017”
someone wrote this on other website…
i don’t remember getting such an email… just two messages in my online account were received after submission

I don’t remember.

You only get an email when you have a message in the account.

This was one year ago.

I got the initial message for AOR (Acknowledgement of Receipt) of application submission. The next message was received within a couple of weeks for medical tests being passed. At that point my application status was as follows:

Review of eligibility We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements.
Review of medical results You passed the medical exam.
Review of additional documents We are reviewing the additional documents you provided.
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 Your application is in progress. We will send you a message when we start your background check.
Final decision Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.

It stayed that way for more than 2 months. I check my profile every few days. At the end of June when I checked the profile, this was the status:

Review of eligibility We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements.
Review of medical results You passed the medical exam.
Review of additional documents We are reviewing the additional documents you provided.
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.
Final decision Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.

As you can see, the only change has been that the background check has started. This was a month ago and I did not receive any message or email when this happened. I noticed it only because I was checking the account every few days.

In the past, once the background check started, people would usually get PPR (passport request) within a week or less but things seem to have changed now. I read across a few forums and checked the immigration tracker too. The timeline is delayed now and so getting PPR is taking longer. It’s about to be a month since we went into background check and it has been 3.5 months since we submitted our application but haven’t received the PPR yet.

Please note that there are exceptions. I have read about people getting PPRs in less than a month after submitting their applications and then some people who have been waiting for more than 6 months too. CIC asks to wait for 6 months on an average for application processing so we are just waiting with our fingers crossed!
