I haven’t yet come across any PPR post covid for express entry, only study permits.
AOR: April
Biometrics : November
Status : Eligibility and Background Check under process
They say they have limited capacity to process outland applicants and are currently processing Canadian Experience Class at full capacity who are receiving COPR’s everyday.
lets see if somebody shares whether they got a passport request from India post lockdown. Eagerly waiting with fingers crossed

Btw i read they start Eligibility and Background Check process after biometrics which takes about 2 months in a covid-less world

All outland from what i can gather. They have mentioned on the website that they are processing applicants with Canadian work experience at full capacity and all others at limited capacity. Whether they are processing or not at all processing is what isn’t clear yet coz I’ve had absolutely no update on my account since i applied in April ‘20 apart from medicals and biometrics cleared. What about you ??

I just started my process..
ITA on 25th Nov
AOR on 13th Feb
I got the BIL and MEP pretty fast ( 9 days past AOR for me ) as opposed to maybe a month.
I am currently in the middle of adding my spouse so that's guaranteed to increase the processing time.
Best is to wait and see how Covid pans out in the coming months.

Considering getting a medical done isnt that difficult, as u easily get a date booked, i’d suggest u wait n see if they ask u for it.
