We provide administrative support to our own clients and/or you can also use our service for obtaining the CAIPS / FOSS Notes, Entire File or Additional Services even if you have retained another immigration lawyer/consultant.
Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System (CAIPS) is an automated system for application processing outside Canada. Normally, information is entered in the system from application forms and supporting documentation submitted by applicants for immigrant and visitor visas, returning residence permits and student and employment authorizations.
Field Operational Support System (FOSS) is the main operational support for Immigration operation in Canada.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have not received your Acknowledgment of Receipt (AOR) then your CAIPS/GCMS Notes most likely have not been created yet. In exceptional situations, we do request CAIPS Notes without AOR if they can help to find out whether the Immigration Office has started processing the application or not.
It takes at least 30 working days to complete the request and takes longer if Citizenship and Immigration Canada has to collect information from overseas offices.
Your personal CAIPS Notes will have valuable information on the processing of your Canadian permanent residence application. CAIPS is NOT the same as the “e-Client”, which only provides limited information on the status of your application.
