Default Medical Photos - Get some more for PPR Photos?

Got our medical booked for next Thurs and we have to take along more photos - the lady said they don't have to be of any particular specifications.....

So, should we get them taken to the same spec required for PPR and have extra done? That way we don't have to get them done yet again when (hopefully) PPR comes through?

Good question, we are in the same boat. We have our medicals a week on monday and have lots of normal sized passport photos lying around at home. Was thinking maybe to just take them with us...... or do they have to be to the spec that they required when sending doc in. Looks like we could do with some help too. X Good luck with your medicals. X

Got the photos done today - all to the size specified by CHC, just hope they're accepted by the medical people.... They should do, since they're just used to identify you on the forms....

We got the extra's ready for PPR (with a bit of luck)....

Hi
We just got some passport photos done.........so not to the exact spec required by CHC. I think they only use them to stick on your med forms for identification purposes. We did have to send two in with our RPRF fee when we were sent for our medicals.......So I just supposed that (as in our case) as we had applied some nearly 4 years ago....that they need to know what you look like now. Or they could be put on the forms given to you for landing.

So far we have needed
2 for the initial application, 2 to CHC when medical requests and update forms requested of IMM008 and background info, and two for the medicals, which they attach to the forms when they do the medicals. I also think you need some more for the PR card and your Canada Drivers Licence....so it would pay to get more than the standard 4 from the outset.

Hope this helps
Stef

Thanks - as far as I know we have all the photos we'll need now, 3x each for me and the wife for the medical and 1x for the medical for our son. Then 2x each for PPR.

Ontario drivers license is taken digitally when you swap your license over.... OHIP is also taken digitally when you apply for it.

Hi
The paperwork does say 3 for the medicals...so we took 3 and they only needed 2 each, but wanted two for each of the children too. One of the photos for each of us had to have name and dob on the back.

Think it depends on the age of the children, my son isn't old enough to need bloodwork or xray, hence only 1 photo.

Whereas we need 1 for the blood form, 1 for xray and 1 for the form they complete perhaps? May only need 2 if they do the blood/xray in the same place, I'm assuming we're going to have to go on a trek to somewhere else to get these done...
