Just received GCMS notes (2nd ordered, first on Feb 2021 and now July 2021).
They extended my medicals last month, they were supposed to expire in a week from today, but last month they were extended for 11 months.
Based on some documents shared by @legalfalcon , I guess I am now group A, were documents have 6+ months of validity.
Hope my application gets processed ASAP once restrictions are lifted, AOR is Sep 2020 (FSW)

Also, last week changed my address as now I am an Inland candidate, uploaded a webform with the Change earlier this week.
@legalfalcon could my application can be updated and the agent might approve quicker now that I am here? (Eligibility passed and background check in progress)
Change of address will not expedite the process, but since your meds are extended, as soon as a decision is made on your application, you will receive a COPR.

Hi, @legalfalcon

Is there any predictable logic why IRCC extends meds for one applicant and sends a re-med request to another?
All I know is that only inland applicants have their meds extended. Is it true ? Is there any info about outlanders?

There is a policy on which these decisions are based.

Just re-posting my update from the PNP inland thread...

Just received the GCMS notes I ordered in mid-July. No surprise, my application is still untouched and security remains not-started.

I contacted my local MP, they were very empathetic to the situation and stated that many people living and working in the area are in the same situation as me. They are drafting a letter to the Immigration Minister because of this. The info they received from contacting IRCC confirmed what I already knew, my application hasn't been touched since Nov 2020. They said they will follow up with IRCC in 2-3 weeks if I have still not received any updates.

At this point, I really do not know what to do. I qualify for CEC, but I would have to re-sit my English test and re-do the medical test. Plus pay the EE fees again...... should I just do this? Do I just start a new application? I just want some certainty around my future here in Canada after 4 years of living here!

My housemate applied via EE CEC 2 months ago. They just received their CoPR. I was obviously happy for them, but also broke down in tears. I really feel for everyone in the same situation who applied in 2020. We have truly been forgotten about.

Hello
I just became an FSW inland after moving to Canada recently. Do you know if I could also contact a MP? How to find who is he/she?
Thanks

Well there's an election going on now, they said 2-3 weeks before the election was called. So who knows!

Hi All,

I am an Indian national with AOR September 2020(FSW-Outland). I am currently visiting my sister who lives in the UK. I also got my first dose of vaccination here in the Uk and would get the second one in the end of September, after which I will go back to India in October.

Just wanted everyone’s advice if I need to let IRCC know of my travel. I had read on other forums that I don’t need to inform IRCC of the vacations if the time period doesn’t exceed 6 months, so just wanted to double check. @legalfalcon I would be grateful for your advice as well.

Thanks in advance.
