Do you mind telling us which purpose did you choose for the extension?
We're a common law couple that qualified for the exemption at the land border (he's a US Citizen) to reunite but CBSA only gave three weeks, we applied to extend the stay to get more time together

Hello,

My Parents are in Canada based on PHAC approval with single entry TRV, their current status expires on August 4th, 2021 ( 6 Month stay) and I am looking to apply for their extension. When I had submitted process first time last, I had paid biometric fees already in application but due to Covid and Biometric not open in India, we managed to get TRV based on PHAC approval without biometrics.

Do I need to pay Biometric fees again in case if I chose to apply for extension ?

Thank you.

hi,

applied on November 4th , 3 days ago got and update that i have to endure a E-MEDICAL exam... really hard in this difficult pandemic times...

BUT, yesterday received my approved visitor record ( it expires in one month ) so, i will have to leave Canada next month

, my question is do i still need the e-medical exam? or it is irrelevant at this point?

thanks

If you received any type of extension that is contingent on your completing the medical.

Did you stay past when your visitor status expired and into the extension period?
yes , because of the pandemic delays i was unable to do it in time, actually it is a restoration of status ,but , my approved document states "visitor record"
