My mother is in Canada with a visitor visa now and applied for a 1-year visitor extension in August. Yesterday, she got an online message to request Medical Report. However, today, she got another online message to say her application has been approved and her visitor record has been mailed to her. :eek:

Since her application has been approved, does she still have to do Medical Exam now?

Thanks a lot!

If you want to stay more than six months then you need to go for medical. Now if its approved then no need to do it at this time.

Yes, she must still undergo the medical. If she doesn't complete it, the extension will be cancelled.

Really? But her application has been closed and the visitor record has been mailed to us. How could CIC cancel her visitor extension after she already got the visitor record?

My mother will help us take care of our newborn baby. I guess the financial support is the most important.

This is a common situation. The visitor record will state under the observations section that she must complete the medical.

The medical was requested - but my mother has complete health insurance under a large U.S. carrier, is there any way to use this to bypass the medical requirements? Thanks!!

The medical can't be bypassed. It doesn't matter if she has insurance.

As already stated, the medical must be done or the extension will be cancelled.

No one here can say whether a person will pass or fail a medical.

hi, i am in the same situation for my mom’s visitor extension, it was approved but requires medical, however she had also another medical request for pr and we did the pr medical instead. Can that be used to comply the visitor extension medical request? How should I send them the emedical form and let them know there was a medical done for pr?i dont want them to cancel her visitor extension because they did not receive the visitor medical and we dont want to pay for two medicals if one is enough...
