Default OH....MY.... God!!!! Medical requests.

I can't quite believe it! After all this time (June 07 application) we have received our med requests. I was so excited I thought I might actually be sick!!
I had begun to think of all the possible things that could have gone wrong to delay "The Brown Envelope"....
Filling the forms out incorrectly, old (minor) criminal conviction, adding the points up wrongly (esp education!), wrong photos (ours were taken in a bog-standard photo booth),NOT sending noterized copies (ours were ordinary photo copies), job not close enought to the NOC description, etc etc. The list goes on!
Glad to say it looks as though we read the instructions, crossed the T's and dotted the I's!
Now on to booking the meds....

Cheers all, and for those of you still wating, I'm sure the postie will drop yours through the letter box any second now......!

Congratulations......one small bit of advice....shop around for medicals as the price can vary, as can what is included.

Hi Goodpikey,

We were on holiday (needless to say in Canada!) when the doc request was sent out, but I'm pretty sure it was sent out in the last couple of weeks of August.
We dropped all of our precious paperwork off by hand around the third week in September.

I'm sure yours is on it's way!!

Cheers.

Really pleased for you bjg....looks like the cogs are turning again for us 2007'ers.

I wonder how long it'll take for CHC to read our 280 pages though...we might be waiting a while.....if we're even sucessful!

Great news for you..
