Can anyone tell me why my OH's new immigration file number under FSW1 (after AOR has been received) begins with an E not a B? Does anyone else have a file number beginning with E?

It means it has been converted to the GCMS from CAIPs. (From the old CAIPS to the new GCMS processing system)

Thanks for that PMM, that explains it, have you any idea if this will affect processing times?

The changeover from CAIPS to GCMS probably has slowed down the processing while the staff learn the new system. As in all new systems there are hiccups.
