Default FSW Cat 1 under new scheme - Medical requests arrived!!!!!!!!

For FSW Cat 1 under new scheme.

Medical requests arrived in the post today - only one minor problem to address. There is a typo on my birth certificate 'o' instead of 'e' regarding my first name that CIC have spotted so need to try and get an amended birth certificate.

Managed to sail through school, get a bank account, get married and obtain a passport without a problem using my birth certificate.

Never mind, hopefully I should be able to sort it at the registrar next week. Will book medicals on Monday at Altrincham or Leeds depending on length of waiting time.

Just one question - I had an hysterectomy 12 years ago do I need to obtain a report from my doctors prior to the medical or not? Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

Good luck to everyone in the queue whether on the new or old scheme,

Poppit

Default Re: FSW Cat 1 under new scheme - Medical requests arrived!!!!!!!!

my advice to you at the time of booking the appointment as the DMP administator as they will know whether you will need the information or not. At Leeds I rang on the Thursday and got an appointment for the Monday. Leeds do the Canadian medicals 3 times per week at the minute, I think CIC have asked for slot to get through processing applications quicker. Even if you need the information and dont have it there and then. You have a week between meds and results so really you have a good 10 days to obtain if you need it so that it is sent in with all you medical details. Just so you know any additional information that they have asked of me I have emailed it too them, then posted of copies for them to submit. It just means DMP can review scanned in copy to speed things up.

Hope this helps

Hi Poppit

of your application so far it's I'm on the fsw cat1 route and would be interested in how long after your AOR you then received your med requests .
regards

Poppit, delighted to hear the good news! And a little selfishly for us too, hope we're next!

Do you mind me asking, had you already sent your final fee or was that requested too? We sent ours with our documentation back in March and they cashed the bank draft on 20th April.

Thank you for all the good wishes.

We have not been asked for the final fee. We only sent the initial fee to Nova Scotia.

The letter states' allow 2 - 3 months for the medicals to be processed.

I will ring and book medicals on Monday - have to take Passport and 3 more photos for the chest x-rays. Will sort out typo on birth certificate and then send the 'new' one to CIC. Hopefully, this won't delay our application.

Yours won't be long - will keep everything crossed for you all.

Initial application fee for 2 adults, can't remember the precise amount $1100 I think.

We have not paid the RPRF (request for permanent residency fee).

Hi we just sent off our initial application to Sydney NS 24/04/09 along with $1100 CAD, judging by your timeline we should hopefully receive our 120 day letter around 23rd May which incidently is my birthday so I will be over the moon if thats the case, did you get any acknowledgment of receipt of your application as we are worrying if it got there ok, Royal Mail track and trace only go as far as "passed to Canada overseas office for delivery"
Congrats on the Medicals by the way

If you use Royal Mail AirSure you can trace it once it's on Canadian soil using the same tracking code.

No we didn't get an acknowledgement from Sydney. Processing seems to be fairly quick at the moment, I'm sure it will slow down a little as more applications are received.

Hope you hear soon - would be a nice birthday for you.

Goodluck and thank you.

Hi Poppit

Thanks for letting us know about your medical request. We are about 6 weeks behind you (just behind Welsh Clan and Spaceace).

Now I am unsure whether to change our address to the Canadian one (will have permanent address by next week) now we are out here in Toronto or wait until we get med requests and then change.

Don't want to delay the next stage and have heard that the Canadian post can be very slow but also not sure whether we are allowed to stick with UK address but get meds done in Canada. BTW - all our post is being redirected to my mam's.

Anyone advise on this one?

Thanks

Lucy
