Hello TheBaft, i am surprised you have a Visa that is to expire in June but its simple. On your Passport Request letter, the Validity of your Visa is clearly sttated. What date was written on your Passport Request letter? Was it the same June date?

Also, about Passport Pickup, AVO did not say we must use DHL. They said "send Passport and socumentation BY COURIER within 15 days. They then went ahead to recommend DHL. A friend of mine has sent passport via UPS which has delivered at AVO. He says he will also employ UPS for the Pickup service once Visa is ready.
Checked my ppr mail. There was no date stated. Just this statement :

The visa(s) will be valid until the expiry of your medical results or until the expiry of your passports, whichever is earliest.

As the validity of your visa(s) has been already established and is limited to a fixed date, it CANNOT be extended under any circumstances. We therefore urge you to read and follow carefully the instructions below without delay:

Chief kollins,

Ours is a family of six. We did our Medicals on 3rd November and our additional documents were received by AVO on 6th November. Up till this moment ECAS is still showing in progress without any evidence that our Medicals have been received by AVO. I followed up with Q life and got confirmatory message that our Medicals had since been submitted. Am just being curious especially in the face of all these mix-up experience with most of our people on this forum. Is everything right with our application?

When you entered ecas and you saw in process. Did you clink on it to further show you more details about your application history. Just click on in process, you will see if your medical is received or not.

With gratitude to God, i wish to announce the arrival of our long awaited pick up mail...Since my representative wasn't eager to shoot a friendly mail to AVO on our behalf till maybe after 5 weeks of passport submission (PPs and docs received by AVO on the 31st of Oct), with the advice and support of some forumites i decided to shoot a friendly mail to AVO this morning. lo and behold i got my reply this evening.
For all those who are kinda overdue to hear from AVO, i would advice that you shoot the a friendly mail asap and hope for the best.
God is faithful..Cheers

Welcome to the thread.
Firstly ,you need to confirm from the hospital if your medicals has been electronically sent.If it has been sent ,it should have reflected in your ECAS status.
How many lines of update can you see on your status updates on ECAS?Just one?
Based on your findings from your hospital ,you may need to send a friendly email to Accra to remind them and summarize what you have submitted to them already.
The hospital will never send the result electronically if there are issues so pls confirm from them.
Which hospital did you use?
Whatever your findings are ,you will need to send an email to them and also raise a CSE to them....either tonight or early tomorrow morning.
Use the link below for the CSE
https://dmp-portal.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/case-cas-eng.aspx?mission=accra
Also,send the email to them through accra@international.gc.ca
Don't forget to include all of your details.
All is going to be well......please be calm.
Cheers
.

My dear people, I received my pickup mail on 3 November 2014. I made a payment with DHL on 4 November 2014 for a pickup. Now that was when the battle between DHL and myself started. My passports finally arrived on 21 November 2014. I didn't even wait for them to bring it to my house, I had to go and pick it up myself. I am really disappointed with the service I received.

I really was happy opening my package and seeing both the visas and the COPR. However, I was surprised that the validity of my visa was 21 June 2014. Was there anyone whose visa had a short validity as well? My medicals were done in October and my passport expires in 2017.

I really thank God for everything. To all those waiting for MR, PPR and pickup ... Don't worry... It will come. To all those using DHL for pickup, please ask the office for your CBJ number. That is key. If there is no CBJ number, then no request has been made to DHL Accra. When you get the CBJ, you will also require confirmation that Accra has received your request. Only then can you be certain that the process has started.
congrats
