Hey - I emailed CIC at the weekend to find out what was happening as we had waited the alotted 2-3 months for medical processing.
They responded today to say:

We are currently in the process of conducting background/ security checks for this application. This is a lengthy process that can take several months. We will be in contact when there have been further developments with the processing of the file.

errrrr... is this normal after a medical?? surly they would not have sent us for a medical if the was still a problem.....

Losing my mind!!

any ideas??

Your answer seems to suggest they're at least looking at your file which is probably a good thing.

Unfortunately the whole communication process from CIC leaves a lot to be desired.

It is normal for background checks to take a little longer than the medical exams. Few people "fail" the background check so it is done in parallel with the medicals in most cases. For some nationalities the wait can extend beyond a year or more and in those cases medicals are not issued in advance.

We are still waiting....

Meds done July. Cleared further medical results October.

Countries lived in - UK and Germany (British Army).

We are presuming all that is now outstanding is background checks - but what the hold up could be we have no idea.

We have sent 3 case specific emails but no reply to any of them, so we are still none the wiser. Wish 'I could help you, but we're completely stumped.
