Thanks for the response! I'm not in Canada but in USA. Could you offer me any timeline from the medical request to passport request? They didn't request anything else other than the medical stuff.
Oh ok, if you are in the USA, there is no need to take the appointment in advance because the DMPs in the US send the results after 2 or 3 days to Ottawa unlike the system in Canada which takes 2 weeks.
Regrading the time taken to get your passport request after the visa office receives your medicals, i cannot give a definite answer but let me be optimistic from this guy timeline (on Trackitt):
He got his medical request from Buffalo visa office on: 11 Nov, 2009
His medical was done on: 12 Nov, 2009
His medical was sent on: 20 Nov, 2009
His passport request was on: 31 Dec, 2009
He landed in Canada on: 21 Jan, 2010
The entire period of time since he has done the medicals and got the visa is: almost a month and a half.
I hope our cases go as smoothly as his.
