Guys,
Wondering who all got extension granted by IRCC after they made request in March-April time? Do we need to redo Medicals or FBI clearances etc?
I made extension request in end of March and got all generic responses. Now am ready to travel in August (pending h1 ban BS).

Did you open a webform stating you are willing to travel?

OP sought the extension(not the correction in existing approved document) hence op can travel without informing them since op travels within already existing approved period. Also op should not send any additional update on travel to avoid confusion.

Guys,
Do we need to redo Medicals or FBI clearances etc?
Not FBI clearance but possibly medical. But during pandemic they might not request as we have not seen others posting on it. As they are going to give few additional months and this is not a normal period, they will just extend without medical but for few months.

Friends,

Please do share if anyone got CoPR extensions based on Mar2020 request. We are ready to travel in August and have notified via web form. Haven’t received anything yet from IRCC except generic response.

How many days has it been for you since you opened the web as willing to travel now? Maybe you can try calling IRCC also.

it has been more than 40~days of telling them we are ready to travel. I called IRCC and now it seems they are picking up calls. For same answer...wait for official note as if she something today it may change tomorrow:(

All the webform stuff... I have been using that. I want to know if ppl who already got extension after notifying they are ready to travel.

Please post if you hear back from IRCC. The only concern I have is even if they issue a new COPR, we cant travel because the copr issue date will be after march 18

Haven't heard anything yet. Only update is ....I have already notified them that I am ready to travel and cross via Land border in August. I updated them around mid May and seems like file has been transferred to concerned Officer to review. Not ETA available.

I think if originally approved CoPR was before 18th March, 2020, extensions should be allowed to travel (can carry older expired CoPR papers as proof)

Were you planning for a short landing or a full and final move. Seems like IRCC is only entertaining settlers.

I am planning to do soft landing and return back. Don't think we need to tell about our intentions i.e. soft landing or perm move to extend CoPR. If they are entertaining extension request in general, they won't care about type of landing.

Someone had posted an email received from IRCC in another thread regarding coronavirus, the email said the extension now is only for permanent movers and asked to provide details of stay, moving plans.
