Canadian Immigration Medical Examination
97% of cases are submitted to the IRCC within the 10 working days turnaround time.
The other 3% delays are due to candidates needing to obtain additional reports pertaining to medical conditions.
98% of cases are submitted to the IRCC without any further information being requested.
The other 2% (returned cases) were due to additional information being required pertaining to medical conditions, ranging from additional specialist reports, to copies of scripts.
“As of December 15, 2016 it will be the responsibility of Panel Physicians to ensure that Upfront Medical Examinations are only conducted for Students, Workers, Visitors and Express Entry applicants. All other applicants should be advised to await instructions from IRCC. To comply with this new process, Panel Physicians are not to book new Upfront Medical Examination appointments for Family Class applicants. A new application process for spousal and dependent child sponsorships comes into effect on December 15, 2016. As part of this updated process, Upfront Medical Examinations are no longer required for Family Class applicants being sponsored as spouses, common law partners, conjugal partners or dependent children. After this date all Family Class applicants using the new process will be issued medical instructions which include an Immigration Medical Examination number generated by IRCC.”
