Hello all,

I'd appreciate your help with this: I applied for spousal sponsorship in August and received AOR (acknowledgement of receipt) on Oct 16. After 13 days (Oct 29) I received an email saying:

"This refers to the Application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class you submitted to this office on behalf of xxxxx and family (if applicable).
This is to acknowledge receipt of your sponsorship application and to advise that your file is presently pending review by an officer. You will be contacted in the future if further information is required or as soon as the decision on your application is finalized."

When I check the status, it says "in process"

Can someone explain what this means? Why would I receive 2 AOR emails 13 days apart?

Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be confused about this situation.

According to the IRCC website, if they “begin to process your application, [they will]:

  • send you an:
    • application number
    • acknowledgment of receipt
  • assess your eligibility as a sponsor
  • assess if the person you’re sponsoring is eligible for permanent residence”

Also, IRCC states they will also send your family members a letter with their application number. Previous users have mentioned that they often use the same email address so it may be possible you are getting all of these emails to a single address.


If you have further questions about your particular application you can contact IRCC via their webform.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
