Guys, I still haven't received a medical call yet. I applied on 27th June. I asked VFS if I should contact the embassy, they told me Medical test is not a must and should only be undergone when the Embassy informs us. Which makes sense, otherwise if it was mandatory they would have asked us to do it before submitting the application. VFS also told me they dont request Medical from everyone.

I have done one medical test back in 2007 before going to UK. Now I am not sure if they require a medical test from me. If they do, now is the time to inform me. What shall I do? Shall I contact them asking whether they require my medical examination?

If u apply from Dhaka than Medical Test is must, never see anyone got visa without medical call. U r become tensed so early. I know some persons who apply on 20 June, but didn't get medical call yet. So be patient.

Hi Rasel, I applied from Chittagong, but it doesn't make a difference. May be u r right I am becoming tensed too early. The thing is they take quite long to make a decision even after medical. So getting the medical early does save a lot of time. But then again if they quickly take a decision after medical (which we all wish) then a minor delay in medical call shouldn't be a problem.

For people who have already lived abroad do they require medical? For example I checked people from UK does n't require medical and I lived there for the past 5.5 years.

There is always exception. I have seen one person recently who got visa without medical call.

I got my medical call after 22 days. Now it has been 34 days after my passport submission but still no news of visa approval. During this rush season, usually it took around 60 days on average. But now I guess a new added problem of strike cause further delay.

You may have already chosen your program or school that you want to attend in Canada; yet I'm posting some links that can better feed to your interest (future applicants) in selecting a Program or University in Canada.

For Ontario
(4) The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) - hyperlinked
The body advances higher education in Ontario through advocacy, research and policy development.

It provides students with information about university programs, admission requirements, scholarship opportunities and other additional resources. It also has a 'Find Program' search tool.

(5a) MyCareerInfo - hyperlinked
It's a resource for students, graduates and entry-level employees wanting to match their university education, skills, desires and goals to jobs.

(6) Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) - hyperlinked

Thanks mate for your encouraging feedback. People like you lifts spirit :) I am concerned because my course starts at the last week of august, so there isn't much time left. But if the Medical is so important to them then they should ask us to do it before the application like in India and some other countries. This saves a lot if time for us and as well as them. Also in India people get visa within 3-4 weeks. I know one person who got it in 8 days!!

I don't understand why is it so tricky to get a study permit in Canada. When I went to UK in 2007 they made me do the medical test before the application and gave me the visa within 2 days.

Btw (slightly stupid question :p) is it by email they inform you about your statues, whether a medcal call or passport request etc.? Or they inform you by phone?
