Default How long after medicals?

Hi,

Sorry, I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find anything on a search. We had our medicals on 2nd August and a letter from the doctors on the 9th saying they had sent everything to CHC. How long is the wait likely to be before we receive PPR? Our Immigration consultants say 3-5 months. That seems a bit long to us.
How long did other people wait?

Thanks

Angela

Hi Angela,

We had our medicals on 12th July and our doctors said that the results would be sent by courier within 4 working days.

We are now about 1 month since having our meds sent to CHC. From reading other threads on this forum, the delay seems to range from 3 to 6 weeks currently.

We too were told by our immigration lawyers that we could wait between 3-5 months but it seems unlikely that we would wait that long.

We keep telling ourselves that it won't be much longer.

Where in Northants are you?

Hi Simon & Laura,

We are in Rothwell, though hopefully not for much longer. Our house has been up for sale since the middle of May but we have had no interest in it at all so we have decided that if it's not sold by December then we will let it out and go anyway. It's so frustrating to be so close to getting the visas and still not know a timescale.
Hey ho we are all in the same boat...
Where abouts are you?

Hopefully you shouldn't be too long now.

We did our meds 18th June, sent 12th July (the blood tests take longer here) and we are still waiting
Imm Consultant says 2- 3 months, so hanging on in there

Hi there, we recieved our medicals 25th May, the results were sent back June 18th, we heard that they required a separate Psychologists report for our daughter as she has a mild learning disorder, this was sent back the 25th July, and we are now still waiting to hear. I'm assuming that with the summer hols that everything is on a go-slow at the mo.
My champagne is still under our stairs waiting. Hopefully yours should'nt be too long now.

Hi Angela,
We had our medicals on the 2nd July and received a call from our agency on the 24th July requesting our passports (we were on holiday in Portugal). We sent the passports off on the day we returned from holiday (eager) 31st July and we received our visa's on Thursday 16th August. I thought this was really quick.
Good luck, you should hear soon

Well done on the timing Annette. It looks as if they have a big bin with meds in. Then they just dip in a hand and pull one out.

Oh well, only a few more walls left to climb.

Still smiling though.
