I guess they are now doing the criminality and eligibility checks. I suspect they try to ensure the applications get near the maximum processing time. 15 weeks currently I think.
Wow, the wait is killing ooo!! I guess wait is all we have to do now with prayers.
I wonder why they dont treat sowp as urgent.

Quick question. Does it say background check for the full 15 weeks of processing before it starts eligibility review. or it says background check completed at some point.

This is a great question, I was thinking same. At what point does it says background check completed? At the moment, my eligibility and BC is in process.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by emeify1: 8:30pm On Feb 11
I think everything gets completed when a final decision is made. Yours is particularly strange though, because medical has been passed 3months ago! Keep.us posted though. Am sure it will be an approval. All d best

Lol. I know....
Have u ever sent a web form to ask for status? Your MP office can also give details of the status of your application. Just mail them with your ICI and DOB and they will inquire of CIC. U get status same day.

Just out of curiosity. How would it take Ghana, Kenya and Benin 6 weeks to get their app processed and it takes Nigeria 15 weeks; they are processed from the same visa office.
This could be an issue with the Nigerian system; maybe a slow response time in verifying some documents or background check.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by emeify1: 2:32am On Feb 21
I doubt that response time is d issue after all people reapply within a few months and should their background check take that long in that case if it was done b4? I suspect they just push our applications aside and concentrate on others. How can u explain an application submitted in September still pending? Its mindblowing really.

Hello Omokas2,

Though am not a guru and had not seen this type of process in recent days, but looking through the above letter, the consultant used IRCC template and drafted a request letter sent to you, your application is still with the people handling your result evaluation, (are they WES?) The mail is from them, looking at the website and all, your application and request had not gone pass their table, applying for a closed work permit does not involves the underlisted documents, since you're not a EE applicant, but if you have no sponsor as it may, you can request for a clarification of what they need in particular or send the details they require to them stating that you didn't use a sponsor. IRCC don't send reminder mail once you received a request mail, they give you a set date to respond and decision will be made on your application.

Best to do is to reach out to the consultant handling your file and seek clarification of the required documents, while you may add your educational documents to the mail and send.

Others can comment too.
Hope it helps
