Also, what about processing of Dec 2020 cases Outland?
Hi Aarti, any update? Have you heard from anyone else in the same position?
I have applied from the UK.. October 2020 AOR and medical and biometrics passed in December 2020.

Any update will be appreciated. Thanks

Not much progress for pure FSW-O. CEC / PNPs continue to get processed faster. Travel restrictions are removed, direct flights now resuming from 27th Sep, so hopefully we may see some PPRs for FSW starting Nov/Dec.
Thanks Vijay. Is IRCC extending meds or asking for remed?
Well, remed would again mean a delay if 2-3 months!

Hello Vijay. Its been months that we connected.

Any update about EE case processing time line? My time line of 6 months have passed by.
Hi, Im in the same situation. I applied for Express Entry and my Application was received by IRCC on 1 DEC 2020. And till March 2021, the progress bar showed 67% progressed. And then they took the progress bar off and since march 2021 up till now the application status is: " we are processing your application and will let you know when there is an update". I passed medical in Jan 2021. And my medical expires on 6 OCT 2021.So most likely I will have to give medical again. Im from Pakistan. And I had no dependants. Just myself being the sole applicant.

Hi, I spoke to my consultant today who prepared the application for me. He is very experienced in this. He says theres a huge possibility (almost certainty) that I will have to give the medical again.

If your medicals are expired or about to expire, IRCC will send it for reassessment to Health Branch where the RMO (Regional Medical Officer) will determine whether to extend them or ask for re-med.

Extensions will be given in accordance to the COVID-19 relief policy. The extension period varies from 6 months (designated countries) to 1 year (non-designated countries). Further, ability to land in Canada is also a consideration factor.

The designated list of countries (same as TRV) can be found at Find out if you need a medical exam - Canada.ca

In order to qualify for extension, your immigration medical exam should have been assessed as M1 or M3

M1: No public risk or danger, no public safety danger and no excessive demand
M3: A health condition(s) is present but is not expected to place an excessive demand on health or social services.

Medical profile assessment codes for reference:

M1: no public health risk or danger, no public safety danger, and no excessive demand
M2: potential risk to public health - medical surveillance required
M3: health condition(s) is present but is not expected to place an excessive demand on health or social services
M4: inadmissible due to danger to public health (e.g., active infectious tuberculosis)
M5: inadmissible due to excessive demand on health and social services
M6: inadmissible due to danger to public safety
M19: excessive demand exempt

Medical assessment coding
Admissible codes (M1, M2 and M3)
Excessive demand exempt code (M19, M29 and M39)
Inadmissible codes (M4, M5 and M6)
Surveillance codes (S1, S2.01, S2.02 and S2.02U)

The results of the IME are entered into eMedical, which are then uploaded into CIC’s Global Case Management System (GCMS). Relevant notes will be added in GCMS based on your assessment.

If your medicals are about to expire or have already expired but you have not yet received any reassessment request from IRCC, then you can get an IME (Immigration medical examination) from a panel physician and send it to IRCC via webform (upfront medical). In all such cases, the medicals are valid for 1 year.

Hope it helps!

@Vijay My PR application has been under process since Nov 2019. GCMS notes state everything is approved. However, the portal is still stuck on Background check. Its an outland application (FSW) from India. Any idea of when can i expect a final response? Called IRCC multiple times but not a single response on status or expected completion.

Check your GCMS notes to see if your eligibility has conclusively passed or not.

If it has been more than 110 days since your eligibility is conclusively passed, you may be in enhanced security screening which takes a long time. Next you can determine if CBSA or both CBSA + CSIS are involved in your security screening request. To find exact dates of the agencies involvement, request CBSA and CSIS notes.

With these notes you will be able to understand:
  1. Where your application stands
  2. Whether the agencies have concluded their screening and sent the report to IRCC or not.

If they have sent the reports, the delay is at the end of IRCC. Just curious, have you tried sending a webform to IRCC for exact status?

Hi,
My AOR is Dec 2020 FSW-O from India.

Could anybody assist me in understanding primary and secondary VO concept ? Where is my processing happening ? My GCMS notes state primary is NDVO and secondary is CIO.

Also, if anybody has information about it, why is there a delay only in FSW-O applications in particular. Since I've applied, many of my friends have left already on Study permit or Visitor Visa who applied alongwith me or later. Why cases from late 2019s and early 2020 still lurking around ?

Primary VO - the country of residence where you have to submit your passport. Primary VO normally sends out the PPR request - at least till recently. Now even the secondary VO can send out the request with instruction to submit it at the Primary office.

Secondary VO - can keep changing between multiple offices for processing of your file. Applications are transferred routinely depending on the workload.

Also, if anybody has information about it, why is there a delay only in FSW-O applications in particular. Since I've applied, many of my friends have left already on Study permit or Visitor Visa who applied alongwith me or later. Why cases from late 2019s and early 2020 still lurking around ?
They changed processing priorities to meet immigration targets.

Unfortunately, lot of applicants from 2019 and early 2020 are also waiting. So that is all that can be done - wait it out unless you want to hire a Canadian lawyer for Writ of Mandamus.
