Hi Guys

Just wanted to confirm something.

I received my COPR in September with an extension granted till August 2021, the COPR Document and Passport Counterfoil expires in August 2021.

But it doesn't say anything about Re-Medicals, my medicals were done in December 2019.

Can anyone tell me if I will have to do a re-medical before travelling or the medicals are extended along with the COPR?

The documents they have sent me does not mention anything about doing re-medicals.

Can anyone please advise?

Regards

Nope. If you have valid CoPR and VISA then you dont need remeds. Just plan your travel keeping in mind the current travel restrictions.

I am in Singapore. I think my VO is also Singapore.

I raised one RTT late Oct, received a generic response. I sent again 2 more to amend my planned travel to an earlier date, didnt receive a response.
I raised a webform directed to SG VO, received a generic response.

I am calling them later to ask whether they have forwarded my recent webform with amended travel date to the responsible office.

I am not sure how long I will wait for a response. I am really hoping to get an AL soon as I am ready to travel by end of January.


Anyone from Singapore with a expired COPR and in the process of applying for AL ? Our was issued on 26 Feb 20 and expired on 26 Aug 20. Any idea of response time to 'ready to travel' web form raised

I so wish I will get the same email with 31st Jan deadline. I regretted not travelling before my COPR expired.

If I am in your position, I would grab this opportunity as you wouldnt know when you will get a response from IRCC again.


Hi Friend,
I too received this mail with 31st Jan deadline and do not want to travel before that.
And the worst part is, if they provide and extension and we miss it, they would close our case providing no more extensions.

Since I don't want to travel, should I still reply and say, unable to travel now or not reply at all.
I am worried, if we just ignore the mail without a reply they would take it as we are no longer interested in Canada.

What do you think ?

Hlo my copr issued in jan,2020 and expire in june,2020. Due covid-19 lockdown, I was unable to use it before expiry. After that I raised many webform get reply to give travel plan in September. In September I give reply to ircc with my travel plan. But now in December I got another email in which written :
Based on our assessment of your recent enquiry, we regret to inform you that we cannot process your request to issue a new confirmation of PR document and PR visa at this time; you have not demonstrated that you meet the exemption criteria. As a reminder, the travel restrictions were implemented to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID‑19) in Canada.



The Immigration Medical Exam (IME) results for you or a dependent family member have expired. It is not possible for IRCC to extend the validity of your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and Permanent Resident Visa (PRV) when the IME results have expired.



Rest assured that your application will remain open and be put on hold until after the travel restriction pause is lifted or until you demonstrate that you meet the exemption criteria mentioned above. You will have to submit the new information via ourwebform.
Now I want to know, whether I do for medical again and submit webform again or not? Because in this email there is no specific line written which tell me what to do next? Please help me and reply if anyone has same situation

May I know what date your COPR was issued?



Hi AGN / All

If someone received this kind of email in Delhi, I received at 3.00 am in morning time.

My COPR issued before March 18 and expired in mid of August 2020.

Extension web form was raised in July and nothing was done later but I was planing to raise RTT soon.

I got an email today asking me if I am ready to travel as my COPR issued on or before March 18, 2020 and expired in August 2020 saying they have extended my medical validity up to January 31, 2020.

It is clearly mentioned that you need to do remeds.

"Rest assured that your application will remain open and be put on hold until after the travel restriction pause is lifted or until you demonstrate that you meet the exemption criteria mentioned above." The thing that is mentioned above is that your current medicals have expired. See second paragraph in the email.

Please redo your medicals sooner than later and upload the medical infosheet using webform.

You're fine till your COPR expires.. Try to travel before it expires.. If you cannot then you may need remedicals..

I am not in the same situation but it cannot be clearer than "The Immigration Medical Exam (IME) results for you or a dependent family member have expired. It is not possible for IRCC to extend the validity of your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and Permanent Resident Visa (PRV) when the IME results have expired."

Please get your medicals done.

Wow! Is the IRCC way to tell you to get your re-meds done? I thought people were getting explicit directions in very clear terms that they need to get re-meds done.

Sir, I think you are looking to argue here which I am not.

I urge you to be compassionate towards the situation, and read the email perceiving a calmer tone.

Thank you
