Medical Surveillance Super Visa

Discussion in 'Visitors' started by calgary17, Jun 8, 2018.

  1. Hello everyone,

    My mom & dad landed in Canada yesterday. For my mom, when she got the visa she got medical surveillance IMM 0535 from the embassy for inactive TB. They had 2 copies of that form with them yesterday, but as didn´t know english, the immigartion officer didn´t even ask for these forms and didn´t fill out the part that says "to be completed by secondary examination officer at port of entry. So i don´t know what should we do now. as well as, their passports didn´t get stamped (which i´ve heard is common these days, as they just scan it). I tried to call CIC & Cbsa both to get more info on the matter, but there is no way to talk to an agent.
    Please if you have some idea about this matter, i´ll appreciate your help. Should i just contact the public health services to make an appointment for my mom. Any idea how much they would charge for all this since my mom is a visitor here.

    Thank you in advance.
     
  2. any update?
     
  3. Actually I didn't get any information from CIC. Then i just called the TB centre in Calgary. They made an appointment for my mom. She just gor her Chest X-ray done. And the doctor told that it's quite similar to her previous x-rays (doctor had the access to see her medical exam's reports that she got done before her visa application). Also the doctor took 2 sputm samples, she told me they will call us if there is something wrong, otherwise it's all good.

  7. No, I have no idea about that. I think they were supposed to do it at the port of entry when they arrived but they didn’t do it. So i think our responsibility was only to inform and follow the instructions from the health authorities. Let me know if you get to know anything more.
     
  8. Here is what I did, you could reference--I drove to the SK-US border, ask the officer please stamp the form.(I explained I just found this form in my visa package). At first, the officer had no idea about that, but after he examined something, then he let me come to the US and come back, according to some regulations. Then, the officer upgraded my new address and phone number, and finally stamp on it!!

    After 1 day, CIC Public Health Liaison Unit contact me, let me upgrade my new address and phone number agin. Additionally, they said,"As a reminder, medical surveillance is a condition of your residence in Canada. Once you have started medical surveillance, you must provide a proof to our office at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This will allow us to update your immigration file and demonstrate that you have met this condition. To assist you, you can ask the public health office where you were referred to, to send us this information on your behalf."

    Then I phoned local health authority about my name, UCI etc. The local health authority person said they will contact me later.


    I hope this could help you

    Best regards
     
  9. Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Actually my mom is here on super visa and is here only until October. I took her to the Alberta TB centre, which was provided on the TB surveillance handout. The doctor did her tests and I asked her if they will be sending all this to Immigration, and she said yes. They asked her Canadian address but at the port of entry no one asked her the address.
    So I don’t know if i should really go to a border.
