Yeah! ECAS In Process :)

Yes, we are now officially into the next stage of the process. Our ECAS status has changed to “IN PROCESS”.Β  I’ve been a bit low about our status, and complaining of the wait yesterday, and today received this surprise :). Here’s a sneak preview of what is inside :).

Usually this happens only after the applicant receives an AOR, from the Visa Office. I guess they have already sent that out, but we haven’t received the same because of the ‘Famous Delays from the IPS – Indian Postal Services’.

That said, the real finger crossing starts now πŸ™‚ Hope all my hard work proves good!

Waiting for the medicals πŸ™‚

Our ECAS Timelines for reference:

1. Feb 11th 2011 – Application Received

2. Feb 14th 2011 – CIO – Sydney Eligibility Review Complete

3. Mar 3rd 2011 – Received by Visa Office

4. Mar 25th 2011 – In Process

PS: What a way to start off this site! The first post is a real good news for me.

Thanks,

Indira Prabhakaran.

    Congrats Indira,

    I am following your blog and posts at canadavisa.com forum as well. I am really happy to see your ECAS and hope you will get into next step soon.

    Hi,

    1. Indira

      Hello Philip,

      You may want to use their case specific form to ask about your ECAS unavailability.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  6. LoveVancouver

    Hi Indira,
    I am just wondering what is the “case specific form”? Is this something available online? I Just tried it, but I am unable to reach to it. Can you please point me out what exactly you meant in your previous post.

    Thanks very much!!!

  7. LoveVancouver

    Hi Indira,
    I just found the website link for Case Specific Enquiry
    .https://dmp-portal.cic.gc.ca/cicemail/case-cas-eng.aspx
    Hope this what you ment in your post.
    thanks

    1. Indira

      Hey, I’m unsure if you are asking about NDVO, if yes, here’s the exact link. https://dmp-portal.cic.gc.ca/cicemail/intro-eng.aspx?mission=new delhi

    SEEKING HELP
    I have received the following mail from London VO
    ====================================================
    Dear,
    In order to continue processing your application, we require the additional documents listed below. Please send clear legible photocopies rather than the original documents unless otherwise specified. If the documents are not written in either English or French, please enclose a certified translation with a photocopy of the original document.
    – Updated forms which are available on our website:

    New Schedule 1/Background Declaration form for yourself – please ensure that you list all residential addresses since the age of 18 years old. (I wonder why they are asking this again as I sent this with the application)
    – Written clarification to explain which country you were residing in while you studied at the International University of Japan.

    – Police certificate for yourself:Japan (If you resided in this country for longer than 6 months whilst you studied for your Masters degree. If you did not live in Japan, the police certificate is not required)

    – Proof of settlement funds. (I wonder why they are asking this again as I sent my bank statement [showing enough amount] with the application)
    You must have sufficient transferable and available funds, unencumbered by debts or any other obligations. Please refer to our website for more information on the amount required. Clearly state the exact amount in Canadian dollars, taking into account any financial obligations, and provide documentary evidence such as bank statements. Proof of assets that are not liquid or transferable, such as cars or jewellery, will not be considered.
    Please forward all requested documents together to the address below within 45 days from the date of this email. If we do not hear from you within that period, your application will be assessed on the basis of the information on file and your application may be refused. Please allow four months for us to review incoming correspondence. All documents submitted in support of your application are subject to verification with the issuing authority. Please do not contact us unless there are significant issues which need to be brought to our attention. Please quote your file number on all correspondence, including the envelope. Your file number is included in the subject field of this email.
    Should your personal circumstances (address, marriage, divorce, birth, death, adoption) change between now and the time you leave for Canada you must report the changes to us. Visas issued without the correct information concerning family status are invalid and admission to Canada will be refused.
    The issuance of an immigration visa does not ensure your eventual acceptance into the practice of your profession or occupation in Canada. It is your responsibility to determine whether any licensing/registration requirements apply to your occupation or profession in the province where you wish to settle. Do not leave employment, sell property or take any irrevocable step in anticipation of immigrating to Canada until you have received your visa(s).
    We look forward to hearing from you within 45 days.
    Yours sincerely,

    7 years back I lived in Japan for two years for my studies, and now getting a police certificate from Japan would take 2-3 months (told by Japanese embassy people in my country)
    What should I do to seek more time from VO. Should I reply this mail requesting for more time after explaining the situation etc.
    Similarly why they are asking again for POF? Isn’t a bank statement enough or they just need a fresh copy?
    Please share your views and insights Thanks

    1. Indira

      Hi Darwaish πŸ™‚

      The requests are pretty usual from a VO at this stage. If you have lived in Japan after your 18th birthday, you will have to get the PCCs from Japan. In case that takes too much time than given to you, please indicate the same to the VO by a case specific query and ask for more time to submit that document only.

      It’s OK for them to ask for updated POF at this stage as they have to ensure the money is available at the time of decision.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

    My ecase is in-process but still pending review of VO:

    We received your application for permanent residence on March 3, 2010.

    We reviewed your application and sent you a letter on April 15, 2010. Please consider delays in mail delivery before contacting us.

    Your application and supporting documents were received by the Buffalo office. They are pending review.

    We transferred your application to the Buffalo office on April 20, 2010. The Buffalo office may contact you.

    1. Indira

      There might be some delays in few PERs as we have seen. In fact we have just received 2 long awaited PERs in the forum. Please hang on, yours will come in soon.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

    hi, Indira, my husband and I are Architects and we have similar record times
    CIO received on 04.04.2011, 1ΒΊ AOR on 18.05, VO received on 13.06, since 15.06 status in process.

    I have also received my application number (E*****), what could E means?, IΒ΄m venezuelan and every body here (before or after 26.06) has received another application letter.

    Did you receive an extra letter after your status changed to in process ?
    Thanks,

    1. Indira

      Congrats and welcome here πŸ™‚

      After going into In Process, we received the medicals :). The procedure might be slightly different for your VO.

      E**** is your application number, unsure what ‘E’ stands for though.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  12. N Lakhani

    Hi Indira,

    I send my application to novascotia, sydney on 7th jan 2011. Received my 1st AOR on 14th march. Then file was transfered to NDVO. On 24 June, 2011, the status changed to in-process and the very next day the e-status changed to decision made.
    It has been one month now, but I do not know what does decision made in this case means. Is it positive or negative ?
    The status just details – A decision is been made on your application. The office will contact you concerning your decision.
    Also let me know when can I expect an reply ! And will that reply be in the form of a registered post or email !

    Thanks,
    N Lakhani

    1. Indira

      Oops, I hope this is a bug. Usually DM before medicals is rejection, but I know a couple of folks who had this and then finally got their medicals. I suggest you contact them and ask what’s going on.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  13. paramvir

    Hi Indira,
    I have been a regular visitor of your blogs and forums; they are really very informative; thanks.

    I need your advise on my case. I applied to CIO for PR with all docs (except pcc and proof of funds) in Jan 11 got PER on 3rd March 11: letter from chc new delhi on 29 March that my application has been received: I sent my PCC and proof of funds docs which was pending submission on June 20. the packet was received by chc on next day.

    Since 29th March 11; the status of my application in ECAS is RBVO, which further states # A decision has been made on your application: you will be contacted regarding the decision shortly# : . There has been no communication by the new delhi VO since 29th March:

    Please let me know what should be my next step: what do you think would be the reason of such delay!

    Thanks
    Paramvir

    1. Indira

      Hi Paramvir,

      I suggest you contact the VO directly and ask them about the status of your app and indicate your ECAS status as well.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  14. Paramvir

    Hi Indira;
    Thanks for quick reply: I have tried to contact visa office directly multiple times; they do not come on phone: don’t meet personally; do not reply to case specific inquiry: do not reply to faxes;
    Since March no action and ECAS :RBVO:. How long does new delhi VO take after second AOR to change ECAS to :InProcess:

    You are the only source of light: Waiting eagerly for your suggestion:

    1. Indira

      Try sending a physical letter addressed to the immigration dept. They sometimes miss emails and case specific inquiries.. But they do pay attention to faxes these days.. Ensure your address is correct on the ECAS.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  15. Navpreet Singh

    Hi Indira,

    I am a pre june 2010 applicant. I had Sent application to CIO in March 2010. I had sent complete file in August 2010 to NDVO.

    Since then status on my ecas is RBVO. Please let me know what can we expect and when? How long does it take for pre juners to go to In process from RBVO?

    Regards,
    Navpreet Singh

    1. Indira

      Hi Navpreet,

      As far as members reported in the forum, they are taking an average of 2 years for the pre – June 2010 applications.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Navpreet Singh

        Thanks for the information Indira…
        I think the only thing we people can do is WAIT……

  16. deepak

    Hi Indira,

    i am new to this site and want an advice.

    i had applied in 2008 but my file was rejected as the ministerial instructions changed , but they had allotted me a the file number ‘BXXXXXXXXXX'( in rejection letter) . now i want to apply in NOC 1122 but my ielts score in speaking is 6.0 which makes my TOTAL POINTS 65.

    i have heard that people have submitted files with old ielts result and later updated it before THE PER ( POSITIVE ELIGIBILITY REPORT ) can i apply my file with old ielts result and later updATE it ( 2-3 weeks send updated IELTS results , re- appearing on august 25th )

    ALso want to know what is the time gap between the completeness check, and eligibility review

    Thanks

    1. Indira

      Hi Deepak,

      Unfortunately, the latest processing methods have changed and I believe there is no chance for a document submission between the ‘Application received by CIO’ and PER. We have seen enough cases to prove this. You will have to submit ALL documents in 1 go to the CIO, Sydney.

      Good luck with your new application.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  18. nirajkumar

    Hello indiraji,
    Yesterdy I visit personaly CHC ND..but they are so rude people there..
    they dont allow anyone to go inside. they just give me slip and told me to contact through email. I m in delhi for 2 days..
    I dont no what to do..plz tell me as soon as possible what should i do now..
    my application is “in process” from 4th week of july and its been almost 10 month after application submitted..
    plz reply..

    1. Indira

      NDVO, just cannot afford to open doors for ALL applicants and that would be a very huge number. They are dealing with lakhs of applications and that’s just the PR thing which is just a small section of the office. Imagine they getting a few thousand visitors asking what’s happening with their file every day.. All you can do is email them, send a case specific inquiry or send a physical letter by courier. Please have patience. They will respond within a month.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  19. Jiby Jacob

    Hi Indira,

    Hope everything is fine with you & your family.. .. My address is missing from Ecas and it happened couple of times earlier…. Believe god will make any news from VO pleasant….

    1. Indira

      I cross my fingers for you πŸ™‚

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  20. Kiran

    Hi Indira,
    Would be glad if you could share your experiences on. Me, pre-June 2010 applicant received first AOR on 25 May 2010, eCas status -> application in process 12 Jan 2011, addressed disappeared in July, and recently in Nov; but have not yet heard of Medical Request !!! how long do you think it would take to receive MR !! The CIC page says processing time in NDVO is 15 months whereas mine crossed 18 months already !!! it is something I don’t understand. The email inquiry to visa office respond with standard answer !!! your thoughts would be appreciated.

    1. Indira

      Hi Kiran,

      Sorry, but I’m tired of answering this question. Pre June applicants, the processing AT visa office currently takes more than 2 years. Please be patient.

      Thanks,

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Kiran

        Dear Indira,
        CIC page says one thing and people on the forum says another… it means nobody knows… !!!

        by the way, I would suggest you to close your blog, if you are tired !!! have a good day.

        1. Indira

          OK, the thing is the CIC website says 80% of applications have that timelines. They cannot declare time taken for every single application on file. The forum may be more practical as more people(read applicants) report their timelines there.

          Yes, ‘nobody knows!’ and we are all trying to gather things and try to understand how things move at the CIC and visa offices, so we know what to expect.

          I’m not here to offer immigration advices to people, just that I wanted to share my personal experiences with people who are in the same boat, so they can have an idea of what to expect. I have already repeated the same answer more than a few hundred times on this blog here and there, that for Pre June applicants NDVO is taking MORE time than they have declared recently to process. If you do not want to take that answer, you are welcome to do so. But that’s the fact!

          I hope you can contact CIC directly and get an answer as to why they are taking longer to process the applications, contrary to what they declare on the site.

          NO! I am not closing my blog for any reason. This is my passion and I can’t give up, sorry!

          Indira Prabhakaran.

  21. kamal

    madam,

    My e cas status changed to in process 10 days ago but its details still show FILE IS PENDING REVIEW. what does it mean ? is any one really processing the file

    1. Indira

      May be your file is on the table, ready for a look up! Relax πŸ™‚

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  22. Jiby Jacob

    Address is back in Ecas with no changes:(.. I’m tensed… Please pray for me..

  23. Jiby Jacob

    HI Indiara,

    Not sure you would have seen in previous post. I got medical, passprt and RPRF request on 24th….:).. I am very happy…

    1. Indira

      Great! Patience pays πŸ™‚ Good luck for your soon arriving visa.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Jiby Jacob

        Appreciate your good help as always. I have a question; I have 3 months of notice period with my present company and planning to put in papers on coming Thursday. Will we be able to find jobs while we are in India? If so, what is the best means of applying for it?
        Also, can we apply through job portals? Any good job portals you would refer??
        Sorry I asked lots of questions.. 

        1. Indira

          Hi Jiby,

          I would say getting a job in Canada, while still in India, is next to impossible in the current situation. Yes there are a host of websites to look for jobs, apply online but believe me noone would be interested to hire a person or even consider someone who has a visa, but not ARRIVED in Canada yet. I would suggest you tailor your resume according to Canadian standards and then come here and start applying for jobs right after you arrive.

          Indira Prabhakaran.

          1. Jiby Jacob

            Thanks Indira…

  24. Amit Gupta

    Hi Indira,

    8.On 18 th they did verifications on phone to me,my employer and also to my spouse employer.
    Now please tell me for how much time I have to wait for next to be happen.How much time it will take now.

    1. Indira

      Hi Amit,

      The time it takes for medical requests is variable and anywhere between 20 days to forever(4 months), it all depends on the complexity of the file situation and the VO’s discretion.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  25. Chintz

    Hi Amit,

    Mine is a similar case with respect to time lines.. App recd on 2nd feb 2011, 1st PER 22nd March 2011, Recd by VO 18th April 2011, ECAS changed to in process on 8th november 2011- we reviewd ur app n strdt processing on 7th nov, 2011.
    Haven’t recd any calls or verification since then..
    All the best.. Keep posting on to update what’s happening with your application..

    Warm regards,
    Chintz

  26. Jiby Jacob

    Hi Indira,

    Hope everything going good at your end.. Remember putting this question in this blog but cant find now..

    could you please advice how do we go about finishing creential recognition of our education and work experience… can we do it when we are in India…

    Please advice..

    1. Indira

      Hi Jiby,

      Sorry for the late response. The next post is on that topic and is coming soon.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Jiby Jacob

        Thanks Indira… I will wait for it..

  27. Jiby Jacob

    Hi,

    I checked acccomoation availability in Toronto and i could find some homes for 500 dollars and given pictures as well.

    any idea would they provide furniture as well or we will have to buy?? Please advice… one more question my dear friend:)

    Did you have to show proof of funds during port of entry to the immigration officer? of so how di it go, di they checkk the whole amount? await your response…

    1. Indira

      Well, you will have to confirm that from the landlord if the place is furnished or not. No we were not asked to show the POF. But they can request and we MUST produce that, else we cannot complete the landing! Anyways, we have to declare that amount and so they always have a record of the POF we carry. They check randomly and you never know!

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Jiby Jacob

        Thanks for kind response… my question is do we have to carry full amount of the required cash or some cash and other documents such as bank statement? also, how much does it cost to open a scotia bank account? I’vee seen your other blog related to it.. some of the guys say its expensive to maintain Scotia bank account and better a SBI account!! Your thoughts and advice plase…

        1. Indira

          Yes, the funds can be in the form of cash, DD/BD, Travellers cheque or a bank statement in CAD. The amout must total to the required POF for your application.

          For us Scotia bank did not charge to open the account as such. It’s only the commission for the money transfer. Also, anyway you will require a Canadian bank account here, why not open it now? For sure SBI cannot be feasible for everyday banking here..

          Indira Prabhakaran.

          1. Jiby Jacob

            Thanks for the advice friens..

  28. kamal

    hi indira,
    My e cas changed to in process in 1st week of nov but inside of in process still shows file is pending review even after 45 days . what does it mean .when will they review it .when they are not reviewing it why did they changed ecas to in process

    thanks

    1. Indira

      Hi Kamal,

      Your file could be on the table and not yet reviewed.. Patience is the key!

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  29. Jiby Jacob

    Hi Indira.

    Sorry i have been very frequent with lots of questions::((. Hope you would not mind:).. could you please advice whether we get any confirmation or acknoweledgement from VO once RPRF DD encashes or do we have to check with our bank..

    Today i checked with my bank but DD not paid yet… awaiting submission..

    1. Indira

      They will send you a hard copy receipt by normal mail, but that can take forever to reach you ;). Better check with your bank regularly.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

      1. Jiby Jacob

        Thanks , I will check with bank on Friday..

        1. Jiby Jacob

          Hi Indira,

          By the grace of God i got my visa on 24th December….

          1. Indira

            Congrats Jiby :). Now, get ready to fly!

            Indira Prabhakaran.

  30. Jiby Jacob

    Thanks Indira. One question, in the document ( Instructions) received along with COPR and Visa, it says no documents will be requested with regards to proof of funds and we need to declare if we are carrying more than 10000 dollars!! my question is will they request to show proof of funds for 11000 dollars fully or can i carry 5 to 6 thousand dollars in hand and get away this this procedure?? Please help on this…..

    1. Indira

      Well, they have the right to stop you anytime during landing for the POF. It should match with the requirements as per your family size on the CIC website. Although they do not usually ask to show the proof, they have the right to do it and if you are caught short of funds, they could cancel your landing and send you back. Never take this risk! Just carry the required funds. The funds should total to the requirement and not necessarily cash alone. You may have drafts, TCs, cash etc., Or a Canadian bank statement in your name should work.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  31. kamal

    hi indira,
    i have reading on this forum as well as on other forum that pre june 2010 applicants file wont be reviewed this year & it would take 2 years or more to process those applications. is it true ?My status changed to in process but they havent started reviewing file even after 3 months of in process appearing on e cas.what should i do. I am tired of checking my e cas status everyday to see any positive changes.

    1. Indira

      Yes it is true :(. Try reapplying under the new set of instructions if you are eligible.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

    1. Indira

      Well, if you had come to the RPRF stage, rejection is rare.. But looking at your history of rejections, I’d better say I’m unsure. If you think you fully QUALIFY for this application, then you will get your visas soon..

          Well, I can guarantee that if at all there is a rejection at this stage, it will be only due to some issues in security and criminal checks. Relax and wait for your day!

    Operational Bulletin 379 – January 31, 2012
    Introduction of the Plain paper – Confirmation of Permanent Residence Document
    Summary

    The purpose of this Operational Bulletin (OB) is to introduce a new version of the Confirmation of Permanent Residence (CoPR) document, designated as IMM 5688.

    Effective February 4, 2012, CoPR documents resulting from cases processed in the Global Case Management System (GCMS) will be printed on plain paper, rather than IMM 5292 stock. The new document format will require processing changes. This OB outlines the new document features and updated workflow procedures for issuance and processing of the document.

    i did not idea for this pl guide me what is real meaning of this..

    1. Indira

      I guess they are just changing the format of the COPR document and I am not sure if that change will affect the way applications are processed. If you can send me the actual link to this info, I can go through and update you on that.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

    madam,

    my e cas is showing processing began jan 2012.
    a lot of people got this change in e cas but now comments are being posted on net that CHC has just dangled a lollipop to placate people who had applied under MI 1 and file is not really being processed else someone or the other would have got call for medicals or rejections as normally one get verification calls or other stuff within 4 weeks of file processing starting.

    1. Indira

      Not necessarily! VO verifies employment only for 5% of applications or so. It all depends on the presentation of the file and officers discretion..

      Indira Prabhakaran.

    2. Raj

      My ECAS status says ‘in process’ since 12 January 2011, and I’ve not yet received medical request. The full application was filed to NDVO on May 2010. I know it is frustrating but the news around saying that there is medical request in 4 weeks from status shows ‘in process’ in wrong. Canada has no respect for us neither they are keeping up with their words; thinking of dropping everything; so frustrating to wait…

      1. Indira

        Yes, but at-least your file is moving! I wish you good luck!

        Indira Prabhakaran.

    Thanks

    1. Indira

      OK, so if your wife is pregnant at the time of your medicals, she will have to wait until the baby is born and then complete her medicals and so you will have to wait more for your visas.

    Hi Indira,

    Congratulations for doing a good job.

    I am currently in Canada and working for a company. I have mailed all the documents for PR in FSW category (except PCC) to CIO, Sydney and selected New Delhi as the Visa Office. My application is in New Delhi and my current ECAS status is “IN PROGRESS”. I applied in Dec, 2011.

    My question is, shall I wait for NDVO to ask for the PCC or send the certificates directly to New Delhi visa office. I believe, NDVO expects a reply within 30-45 days but FBI certificate takes anywhere from 5 weeks to 12 weeks.

    Thanks in Advance.

    1. Indira

      You will have to wait for them to request PCCs. They are aware of the FBI timelines and they are OK to be notified of any delay in the PCC submissions.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  55. Permvir Singh

    Hi, Indira

    I applied in September 2009 and underwent medicals in September 2010. I sent my PP to CHC in Oct. 2010. In March 2011, I was asked to submit my original education certificates. Since then, there has been no response from CHC. Should I contact them directly. I have hired a consultant . Can I bypass the consultant and communicate with CHC?

    Regards,
    Permvir,

    1. Indira

      You can, but you must throw your consultant out of your application for that. Ask them to followup on your behalf.

      Indira Prabhakaran.

  56. Jeena

    Hi Indira,
    My deadline to submit the PP, RPRF and PCC was March 9 and I submitted all docs except PCC on that date. I have submitted an explanation and all the correspondences with the Singapore Police regarding PCC to the NDVO stating that it wud reach only by end of March. (I got the request letter from NDVO to be submitted to Singapore Police by March 2nd week.) THe Singapore Police has sent the PCC on March 19th. I have sent a case specific enquiry to the VO on March 25th asking whether they have received the PCC. Still no response πŸ™ My file is still IN Process and no data after the sentence Medicals have been received. ) What to do? Please advice.
    Many Thanks,
    Jeena

    1. Indira

      Send another case specific inquiry to confirm everything is submitted and that you will wait for the stamped passports.

      Indira Prabhakaran.
