What is GCMS notes?

GCMS stands for Global Case Management System and is used by IRCC to process immigration and citizenship applications. This system contains all the application files and documents submitted by the applicant officer for review and all other relevant information. The GCMS note is issued under the access of information act.

Why do you want to order GCMS Notes?

If you are an applicant who has applied for immigration for so long and hasn’t gotten any update from the IRCC, then this GCMS note is for you. By ordering a GCMS note, you will come to know What’s going on with your application right now? What is the status of your application What is IRCC reviewing right now? Do you need to provide any additional documentation in order to keep your application moving further? Also, if you’ve ever been rejected by the IRCC for any of your immigration or citizenship applications, you’ll want to apply for the GCMS notes. That’s the only way to understand what went wrong with your application in the past and what the reason for the rejection was.

Who Can Apply for GCMS Notes?

Since the access to information act gives an individual a right to access records that come under federal government institutions, it is only limited to Canadian residents, permanent residents, and Canadian citizens. They can also apply for the GCMS notes. So the question is, how can someone who is not residing in Canada get GCMS notes? They can do it by choosing a representative. Let me explain how that works.
If you are residing outside of Canada and want your GCMS notes, you need to ask someone who is living inside Canada. They can apply on your behalf. You need to submit consent from IMM 5744 to give them authority with that consent form An individual from Canada can apply for GCMS notes on your behalf because yes when you are giving that consent form, you are giving authority to an individual to access your personal records, so be extra careful

To find consent from IMM 5744, please check the below consent from IMM 5744 and Download it. If you would like to know more about the representative, you can ask me in the comment section or (email us at )

How long does it take to receive GCMS Notes?

Generally, it takes IRCC 20 to 30 days to respond to excess information requests. However, sometimes IRCC will take an extended period of time to give you a response when a large number of records have been requested. In general, you can expect 20 to 40 days of timeline in order to receive your GCMS notes.

Which documents do you need for the GCMS Notes Application?

In order to get GCMS notes, an applicant would need an application number along with their basic identification information. UCI Number Optional (Unique Client Identifier) A UCI number is also requested, but that’s not mandatory
For application numbers, you can find them in your CIC account. They are generated immediately after you submit your request to the IRCC. For example,

  • The permanent resident application number starts with E
  • Work Permit application number starts with W
  • Study Permit application number starts with S
  • and Visitor Visa application number starts with V

On the other hand, UCI is a unique client identifier and it only generates one IRCC to start processing your request The UCI number will remain the same across all applications for one applicant.
