I don't think IRCC will ask for proof of vaccination before issuing PPRs.Hello FSW-India folks,
What is your optimistic hunch of when we will get our PPRs
(provided COVID doesn't have further surprises and vaccinations continue at current pace) :
My Guess is ~Dec 2021
Its based on below theory:
July - CA-US Border opens for fully vaccinated people
Aug - If Covid cases do not rise, CA opens travel from EU/Australia open for fully vaccinated people
Sept - CA allows fully vaccinated students
Oct - Processing restarts for FSW-O.
Nov - IRCC starts handing over PPRs for fully vaccinated folks starting with approved backlog (Nov 2019)
Dec - PPR for Fully vaccinated folks
Please share your thoughts. Dire need for some positivity.
It is too much work. They can barely keep up with the GCMS requests, despite being both simple and not new, with an existing legal framework.
Maybe they can ask for proof at the same time as the PPR (actual passport + vaccine passport copy).
But I think it is more likely that they slowly issue PPRs regardless of vaccination status, and delegate the vaccination check to airlines and border controls, like they would do for ordinary travelers.
Pure speculation of course.
