My friend's parents re-did the medicals and status got updated again for the medicals being passed.

NDVO is the VO. She was asked to provide a whole bunch of documents in Feb 2017 which she submitted on time.

Any idea, what the next steps are for their file?

Hi,

Finally got passports back from Ottawa after 5 weeks. :)
Parents are already in Canada, so probably will book an appointment with IRCC office for landing.

Here is the document that I got back. Hopefully it will answer your questions. Also I haven't booked the appointment yet, not sure about the time. It should vary by place to place.

Hi Folks,

I am on the same page; got the pre-arrival letter on Jan-5, 2018; what is the next step? Will they ask us to redo the medical [medical will expire on Jan 30th, 2018] or request for passport?

Congrats; did you receive the CoPR along with returned passport or separately [by email or mail]?

Hi,

I would like to see if someone can advice me with my situation; my PGP-2016 application is in Ottawa VO; on Jan 5 2018 received the pre-arrival letter. Waiting for next step at this point.

I just moved from Ottawa to Brampton [Ontario]; wondering if I should the update the address with IRCC at this point; will address change delay the process?

Or just wait for last couple of steps to be over and not to make the address change? It has been 2 years and don't want to cause an unnecessary delay at this stage.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
