I know..i really feel very sorry for our situations..its really very sad :(
For my case, it has been lucky already. When I submitted application, the purolator was delayed one day and the file was arrived on Jan.05 2016. I thought there is no hope ,but later the cap increased to 10000. Finally my mom's case was counted in. If wait until 2017 with lottery system, I dont know how long will we wait! mabye can not apply forever

Hi Sam0001 and goldencanada

In my understanding , if you guys have had received a pre-arrival letter earlier then there is no need to be worried about because Immigration Office does send that letter only for probable applicants, sooner or later you both will receive good news.
Pkur - I noticed your office was NDVO & you as well got the pre-arrival letter back in Nov 2017.

Could you please share your timeline after that ? Thanks

We did the medical exam in Oct 2016... Not sure if anything went wrong but from the CIC status, progress stopped there confirmation of receiving medical exam. :(
Hi! It is the same in our case. After the medical exam in Oct 2016 no news at all. We send a couple of emails amd we were told to be patient. We haven't got re-medical exam request.

Hello All,
I'm in the 2016 batch as well. My parents first medical was done in Feb 2017. We received re-medical request on 26th Jan 2018 and pre-arrival email as well. My parents went through re-medical on 7th Feb 2017 and after that there is no news. I have heard it is very quick after re-medical. I asked my MP to followup and got following response:

"""
I have spoken to an agent at IRCC and can provide the following update.
The criminality for both parents has passed and valid until February, 2020, they have received both medicals and they are valid until February 2019.
The security has passed for your mother and valid until February, 2020. The security checks for your father are still in review. There are no processing times for how long the security checks may take."""

Any idea how long this may take? It is strange that my mother's security has passed and fathers is still in review?
I would have thought that security should have been done before they asked for re-medical. What is the point of re-medical if we still need to wait for unlimited time and re-medical expires again?

Has anyone experienced the same??

Any idea???

That is really strange that your father security is not complete and they order second medical. May be they get security clearance from all but one agency & hope it will come clear soon. You know FBI , CSIS , CBSA etc ...

At least you have got a status from the agent. I am told only that the time of processing is longer that it was expected and to try not to email them again.

Hopefully this is the case. I am surprised as well. Everything should have been done before.

Hi,

Today I received a strange message from CIC and it has a form attached to it called "MEDICAL SURVEILLANCE UNDERTAKING".
Did anyone else here received it? Can someone let me know what is this about?

My parents 2nd medical was passed Jan 30th 2018; then they requested for their Passports on Feb 8th 2018 and ECAS status has been changed to decision made; we sent the passport on Feb 27th, 2018 and now waiting to get back the passport from Singapore Visa office.

I can see from online linked application that visa is issues to them; and is valid until Jan 30th 2019.
