Blooming Heck! Passport pics are expensive in UK now. We pay about £3 for 8 passport size - acceptable to UK passport office, used to renew my passport earlier this year - and 20 mini pics used here for all sorts of official documents.

Wait until you have to buy some in Canada.... I paid 13.99CAD last time I renewed my PR card and US Passport and you don't get 8...lol

I've seen some places charge as much as 24.99.

Nope, I've just doubled checked (kept the receipt) and it was $300. The majority of the approved physicians on the list in Vancouver are around $280-$350 (as of March 2015). How do I know? I rang each one up in advanced to find out and still have all the prices

What I liked about the place I went to was that they only charged me an extra $20 to do a Hep B blood test; unlike the place in Birmingham that charged me an extra eye watering £100!

I'm off to get my spousal sponsorship medical done soon, theres a little office in Kitchener which exclusively does immigration medicals, for $175 including the blood work and x-ray. A lot cheaper than anywhere here in Toronto and definitely cheaper than getting it done back in Manchester!

I did the same thing. I called every doctor in the lower mainland who was on the list. I went to do some doctor I think in New West, or maybe Burnaby, I can't remember everything but the x-ray was included in the price. Had to pay $20 for the x-ray.

First and only time I have had a doctor do a blood draw.

Mine was £320 in Birmingham. It is not cheap I know. Think is it much cheaper in Canada if you can get it done one that side.

My husband's medical (being done in the Maidenhead Berkshire UK for outland spousal sponsorship) is £285. Expensive, but will be worth it when he is in Canada with me.

On the bright side, the Medical is one of the cheapest things you will pay for on your journey to Canada....

Oh definitely worth it. I called the centre in Birmingham this week and they quoted me £396!! I tried getting a Saturday appt so I didn't have to miss work, but to no avail.

Just putting the final parts of the application together now
