Unfortunately no passport request yet, no. I think it wouldn't make sense since the borders are shut for non residents.
I will make a GCMS notes request to at least get a glimpse at my current progress just in case.
I am wondering now if they eventually came up with a plan on opening the border (or planning to make some exceptions for immigration applicants )
amid all this covid mess.
I passed my medicals in June and haven't heard a thing since then.
Fingers crossed things started moving again.
That is some pretty awful timing! I'm not expecting much to happen after I do mine to be honest. If they're keeping the border closed to America they're unlikely to allow us outlanders to soft land yet...
