    reviewing the results of medical exam

    Mine is in progress since Sep 2019, so I totally feel for you! Are you inland or outland?

    reviewing the results of medical exam

    Medicals are valid for one year only. I think their decision to extend or send a re-medical request is completely random, so it's all about luck. My medicals status also changed this week, and I'm bracing myself for another $1-2K thrown into the garbage chute of immigration - the medical exam...

    I haven't updated my signature, but on Wednesday my medicals changed to "We are reviewing the results of your medical exam." In any case, I am waiting for the passport request! Ready to go to Canada!

    Thank you for your reply! My own experience with photos at Walgreens/CVS has always been horrible as well:) Thanks for confirming I should NOT go there! Fingers crossed! Hope I get my PPR soon, as everything is passed/valid since Nov, looks like they're deciding whether to extend medicals or...

    Biometrics in 2021 in US - connect here

    I gave my biometrics/submitted application in 2019, but here are my 5 cents on biometrics in the US during covid. ASCs are a total mess now. My wife is still unable to get her biometrics appointment for the H4 change of status filed in April. They might be prioritizing later applications...

    Congrats! Did they ask you to do a remedical before sending you the passport request? What is your CoPR validity? I'm curious how much time they give you to land after you're finally approved. Where did you get the correct photos? Does CVS/Walgreens work, or do you need to find an actual...

    Asked to redo the medical examination

    Did you get any medical updates in your profile before you received a remedical request? My medicals status changed from "you don't need a medical exam" to "we are reviewing your medical exam" yesterday. I wonder if it's a sign of remedical coming my way. Still hoping for extension though, for...

    Not a PPR, but... Yesterday I had a ghost update. The progress bar disappeared and the status of my medicals changed from "You don't need a medical exam" to "We are reviewing your medical exam". My medicals expired in September 2020, I wonder if it means remedical/medical extension is coming my...

    Hey all! Did anyone, especially US-based had any progress on their application recently? IRCC has been silent on mine since the last GU in early November. They hadn't responded to my December webforms either. I wonder if they went into another hibernation for another year or if I should expect...

    Well, it gets frustrating now. My medicals expired in late September. I have received a total of 4 ghost updates in October/early November timeframe, and since then everything has stalled. I am still in the US, so I can cross the border and land as a FSW-O, but I have no idea when it's going to...

    So does this mean that the recent ghost updates are system glitches and not signs of the actual application progress? I had a total of 4 over the fall, starting from the medicals expiry in late Sep, two in October and one in November. After raising the webform in late October I have got the...

    Congrats anyway, this looks like a quick turnaround! Hopefully you'll get your docs soon. What is your medical validity? Has it been extended? Also, where did you take your photos? Is a requirement for a photographer's signature (or something like that...) still applicable for COVID times?

    This is so frustrating. Can't imagine that IRCC is sooo irresponsible. Anyways. Fingers crossed! This is most certainly a COVID-19 related delay, and you will get your passports back. Keep us all posted. P.S. I don't have the ready for the visa email yet, but as per the most recent webform...

    Passport Delivered at CPC Ottawa and Waiting for COPR ----- come in here, keep each other updated.

    Wow, this thread makes me anxious. Losing a passport isn't exactly how I envisioned the last stage of my Canadian PR journey. Do you mind me asking, are the applicants with their passports delayed US-based, or are you sending your packages from overseas (India, Europe, etc.) I am in the US on...

    Passport Delivered at CPC Ottawa and Waiting for COPR ----- come in here, keep each other updated.

    Hey, a (possibly dumb) question for US-based FSW-O applicants - do we need to send our actual passports via regular mail to Ottawa? Or is there an option to send a passport within the US/send a copy? This is pretty scary because my family is in change of status now, from F2 to H4, and passport...

    I haven't seen anything like that in my GCMS notes, but I have ordered them in May, received in early August. Some things might have changed since then. My application wasn't ready for approval, I had eligibility/criminality passed, security in progress (due to the comprehensive SS I guess -...

    No, nothing since my second GU a week ago. Still waiting. It's nerve-wrecking for sure, but at least they have opened my case recently and it gives me some hope!

    Ottawa Case Processing Centre applicants - Lets connect here.

    Hi all! Not sure what it means, but had two GU in the last two weeks. VO Ottawa, FSW-O, Sep 2019 AOR. I have also had a GU when my medicals expired in September (changed to "you don't need a medical exam"). I wonder if those ghost updates mean some progress is eventually happening with my...

    Hey there! Another GU today, FSW-O in the US as well, Sep'19 AOR, SS since Feb 2020. No changes compared the previous GU last week when parts of my profile appeared hyperlinked. Can it be automatic GU because I have submitted my biometrics precisely a year ago?

    Hi everyone, Received a GU today. Nothing changed in the application, but the "applicant information" section appears hyperlinked - when I click on it, it gives me an error message though. Previous update was on the medicals date in September when "you passed medical exam" changed to "you don't...
