One important reason to order a GCMS file is to ensure that all correspondence between the applicant and the processing office is being delivered and received as intended.
There are countries where regular mail service is of inferior quality, and the applicants virtually play hit and miss game when sending documents to visa offices. Worse than that: given prolonged processing times one can wait for correspondence for many months being unsuspicious that the mail was sent to him or her a long time ago and was simply lost en route.
Another very common example is email messages from CIC going directly to spam box without being read by the intended recipient, i.e. the applicant. Sometimes the applicant’s email address is entered into the system incorrectly, which means that messages won’t be delivered at all. When an applicant changes his or her email or mailing address, the visa office must be notified as soon as possible. However, it is not uncommon that the respective information in the system is not updated before correspondence is sent by a visa office – thus resulting in misdelivery.
