I did my medical checkup on august 27th file transfered to NY on sept 1st.

only sometime around dec 16th i figured there was a remedical request sent which i didnt receive due to address change issue.

I did remedical examination and file sent on dec 24th.

Feb 16th received PP request
Dipen:

Didn't you notify to post office so they could forward your medical request received at old address? Or Medical request mails cannot be forwarded? What was the reason?

Hey folks,

I completed my medicals couple of weeks ago and as per Fed-ex tracking info, it was received by Ottawa office on 2/10/2010. Now when I checked the e-cas status, its says tht the file is "In-process".

Now my question:

How long does it usually take (if at all) to transfer the file to a local consulate--say like NY after sending in all the medical reqs?

TIA,

6Sigma

I have a question about following field on IMM0008egen form:

Visa office requested for your application:___________

When I submitted my application to AINP, I had filled Buffalo, NY as I thought this was the only option.

Now for submission of my application to CIC what options do I have ??
Is the choice based on state of your residence , I am in Indiana.

Have seen many people with their cases transferred to LA, NY, SFO consulates etc....and in some cases processing is faster.

Is Detroit an option for choice of consulate ?.....as this would be the closest to me in case I get called for an interview.

Thanks

Re: New Passport - Dipen

I have the same thing - Old and new passport business.
Logically since CIC and AB have screened your application all the way thru, at this point they shudn't need to verify the old passport details. However, inspite of this, I send both - old & new - to avoid any delay/ confusion.

Hope this helps! :)

Dipen check your inbox i sent you an reply. I sent both passports expired and non expired......... You got to understand you have F1 visa stamped on your old passports. They need to see your legal entry in United states. no harm sending both passports just to avoid delay.

I sent only my new passport and a copy of the old. Felt it wasn't worth the risk of having 2 passports in the hands of the Consulate; got it back stamped with no issues.

I received this letter from Buffalo yesterday saying that My Medical has been expired and I need to get a new Medical. I took my Medical last Feb 16 2009. That time, my application was completed and has been waiting for the PPR letter since then.
Buffalo is too slow and now I have to deal with 4 hours travel to the nearest Doctor and pay $375 again. Take a day off ..etc.

So far, no PPR, but letter to do the medical. ...

My question: is there a way to avoid doing the medical again ?

Please confirm if you send all the PCC's and FBI report with your application to CIC or you submitted them later.

Arsenal,
There is no way you can avoid this second medicals it has to be current when you enter Canada.I think that's a good sign.Your backgrounds checks might be in and they want to complete your application. Though u'll be spending more money the wait is almost over for you.At this stage i think the sooner you do it the sooner you'll get result.
