Wink Pre-arrival letter received a month ago

Hi,

Our PR application has been in process since Nov 2019. Early Dec 2022 we received a pre-arrival notice (not sure if they know we're actually here haha). Since then we haven't heard anything though this is likely due to the holidays. I read a few different things about the pre-arrival notice with people having various experiences.

Does anyone know how long it likely takes to get your PR after you've received the pre-arrival notice please?

Many thanks

Hello there,
Does anyone know what happens you get your pre-arrival letter? I was told PR would be within a matter of weeks but it's been few months and I can't get any answers. We're waiting on PR as I have an offer of a new job that I can't accept so I'm getting a little anxious.

Quick update.

PR is still alluding us. We contacted IRCC and have been told our application is on hold till they receive "required information from external law enforcement". No idea what the hold up is as they wouldn't elaborate on what they need. Neither of us have a criminal history other than being questioned by police once when I was 15 and my husband once when he was 17.

We are now 3yrs, 4mths into our application process

If posting about PR it's always helpful to say how you're applying. If it's via EE, your application has taken far longer than it should have. If you've applied under parent sponsorship, then it's perfectly normal. Etc.

Have you ordered your GCMS notes to see what's been going on?

Thanks,

We applied via PNP as had an issue with AIPP. What do you mean by ordering GCMS notes? I haven't heard of this and would love to know how I can get more info on this

But again there will be a big difference in processing times between streams - paper based or via EE. Always worth giving full info whenever you're asking anything about a PR app, as so much is variable depending on the route.

Glad you've sorted the notes, hope that gives you some answers and you can find out what they're checking on.

Good luck.
