Hi all.
This may have been asked before . Are some( all ? ) Visa offices allowing for medicals within 90 days ? Or do we have to put in a specific request ?
This link https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/medical-police/medical-exams.html says they will allow up to 90 days but I am not sure if that applies to all offices as well ?

Biggest reason for the delay in our circumstances is that my moms passport expired recently - and a new one will be needed when medicals are done I asssume ?

Thanks in advance !

Guys any thoughts on this - If parents are in Canada and doing virtual landing then how goods to accompany / follow items are moved to Canada without being taxed ?

Hi Everyone, a new member here. I applied for my parents under PGP2019. I received invitation on April 25, 2019. My application was received in Ottawa on June 17,2019. And i received acknowledgment of receipt email on Oct. 29, 2019. Online sponsor application status (In Process) shows that application processing started on Feb. 7, 2020. I have not heard anything from CIC yet. I was wondering if anybody else is in the same situation?
Thanks, Harpreet

It was straight forward, we filled in the ArriveCAN app which gives you a reference number and that's all they asked for. Going through security they reminded us that we had 6 months stay if we don't get our PR in that time. Fingers crossed that we will get it soon. I sent a web form to IRCC informing them that we are now residing in Canada
Thank you for your response.

My MIL have approved Visa just 3 days ago, we are just waiting for Pre-departure sticker from one of the Philippine Government Agency and planning to book a ticket for to fly by November first week.

Hi everyone, I have submitted my application for my mom last June. I finally received a letter yesterday (Sept 30, 2020) from CIC to inform me that they received the application on Jun 27, 2019, and provided a case file #.

In the letter, there is a paragraph as below. I am pretty sure I have included an IMM5768 in my original application. Open the link in the letter, the IMM5768 form is a newer version. Should I submit a copy using this newer version IMM5768? or this is just a generic message to acknowledge they have received the application? Thank you in advance for your prompt answer.

"
Please note that the following documentation will be required for your sponsorship
application to determine whether you meet the minimum necessary income requirements to
sponsor a parent or grandparent. In order to minimize processing delays, if not already included
in your application, please obtain and submit as soon as possible:
 A completed and signed authorization form – IMM 5768 - Financial Evaluation for Parents
and Grandparents Sponsorship providing your Social Insurance Number.
o If you selected “Yes” to the Statement of Consent on this form and provided your
Social Insurance Number, you authorize IRCC to request information from Canada
Revenue Agency (CRA) in regards to your, or the cosigner’s (if applicable), income
tax information for the three consecutive years immediately preceding the received
date of your application.

Yes, you can apply for visitor visa extension within Canada. Please refer the below link:
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/extend-stay.html

Even if you don't get visa extended by the expiry of the current visa, your parents can stay in Canada under "Implied Status" until the decision is made regarding the visitor visa extension. I will recommend applying a month before the current visa expiry
Thanks much for reply.
I will be applying visa extension in Oct
and visa ends in march -

Hello All,

My parents have applied for PCC in India but due to old address in passport they asked them to change to current address in passport before applying for PCC. Now we have applied for new passport with current address. My concern is do we need to notify CIC about the change in passport as I think passport# will get changed as well. Also how would I notify? Do I need to re-do any forms to show the new passport# ?
