Default Why Taking So Long to Start Background Security Check?

Hi,

I'd appreciate if anyone can shed light on why it took CIC 6 months to
start my background sec check? Following are the details from my CAIPS
filecheck report:

Application Recieved: Sept 6, 2001
Selection Decision Made: Sept 11, 2002 (Interview Waived)
Medical Decision Made: Jan 24, 2003 (Medical was sent mid-Nov 2002)
FBI Police Certificates Accepted: Feb 25, 2003 (It was the 2nd PC
request - sent to CIC on 10th Jan 2003)
Backgound Check Inititated: March 6, 2003

I thought background checks are started right after Selection
Decision. Hence I thought that 8 mos have already been spent on my
background check. From the CAIPS report, it seems that the Background
Check is only 2 months old and was started after the FBI PC were
accepted. At this rate, I don't think I will get a final decision till
Oct 2003 at best (I am from Pakistan and read in this group that
background checks of citizens of Pakistan will at least take 8 months)

I'd appreciate any input.

Regards,

ZAK

Hi Zak,
I got my caips file too, similar to your timeline, but how did you know that
background check is initiated on March 6th, I could not find that information
in my caips notes.

The info on the initiation of background security check was on Page 3
of the CAIPS report. The specific text was "FILE TO CN FOR BDEC"

Hope this helps!
