Do let us know of the outcome, and also your profile.

9 months into the application, if they are asking for documents after seeing your profile, I'd assume you have a good chance. Else, they could have just sent a rejection letter (they don't have the docs, but you'd have provided your + your spouse's details to them anyway).

Though the veterans here may think I'm being too optimistic, a lil bit of hope doesn't hurt anyone :) .

I did not attach any cover letter with the additional documents they asked for. Did not annoy them further. They might already be annoyed as I did not furnish my wife's bachelor degree certificates and transcripts with my original application.
They can ask more documents to check genuineness, audit purpose at random,etc. Doesn't mean positive always.

No, at least I don't think you are being too optimistic, I think you don't have a clue what you are saying and you definitely haven't done any research on this board either or you wouldn't have made such a statement. :roll:

Profile looks ok. If rejected its because you applied too soon or because you're a flight risk.

No, at least I don't think you are being too optimistic, I think you don't have a clue what you are saying and you definitely haven't done any research on this board either or you wouldn't have made such a statement. :roll:
Hey SMS, I tried my best to find a profile where ICA asked for some certificates + payslips but was eventually rejected. Alas could not find one of such. Would you be able to share such a post if you have time? Thanks.

Finding such a profile will not help too because your application and the other applicant's application, may look similar on surface, but there will be 20 other differences that ICA can see between the profiles, that we can't see

Don't increase your anxiety by doing comparison. If you look at what more can be improved longterm for both you and ICA, that will help the application

That's like trying to find an applicant with 2 hands, 2 feet and 2 testicles and hoping that similarity is good enough for success.

Hello
My salary got increased by 4.5% since I applied for PR. Shall I email to ICA to notify or it’s not considered material change?

Thank you for your advice.

You can but whether it will have a positive impact, no one can say other than ICA.
