Medical request before Biometric.? how come.? So you have applied for a Study permit along FSW self-employed.?
I know. Strange, right? I woke up with 5 emails for all of us (me, my husband, and 3 kids) from IRCC. Upon checking my GCKey account, they were all medical request letters. That was the day before we had to do our biometrics. We've completed our biometrics now and are just waiting for our upcoming medical exams.
Yes, I applied for a study permit earlier this month and I also have an ongoing paper FSE PR application submitted last Dec. 2020. No movement with that so I decided to take the student pathway. I'm the student and my husband applied for an open work permit.
By the way, that same day I received our medical request letters, I also saw that our status in GCKey had changed to "RE" -- Reviewing Eligibility. It's the final step before they make a decision on your case. Really weird because at that point, we had not done our biometrics nor medicals yet. And from the date I lodged our application online to the day we reached RE status was only 14 days.
