Scheduling Medical before Interview scheduled

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I called NVC and was told that our case was completed at NVC on March 22nd. They said that they are waiting to schedule an interview and will let us know when they have scheduled one. We live on Vancouver Island and therefore it is a little bit of a hassle to get over to Vancouver for a 6:30am medical appointment, but we will happen to be over next month. I emailed to schedule an appointment and got one, but I just saw on the website it says that for Montreal applicants you must have received confirmation of your interview before they will see you. So I suppose my question is two-fold.

1-Has anyone gone here before having an actual appointment? They don't require bringing proof of the appointment(or it's not on the list of what to bring)

2-Do you think we will have an appointment by then? The medical appointment is April 11, so that would be almost 3 weeks since our case was completed, how long have most people waited from completion until having an appointment scheduled for them?

Also slightly not related, we realized a few weeks ago that my husband's(the beneficiary) passport was expiring in June and so we went and renewed it, so the passport photocopies that we mailed in to NVC will be wrong now, will that be an issue, or not matter so much as long as we show up with the new valid passport?

My Passport was expiring in March. I renewed it in late Jan. Didn't send a copy to NVC. You have to use new PP from now on. Keep the old and new both along with their copies for both medical and Interview. It happens to people all the time. As long as you have a valid Canadian PP, you're good. The consulate officer saw my new passport and asked for a copy of it. He took out the old PP's copy from the file and gave it back to me without even looking at the expiry date or anything. So don't worry for PP.

As far as the medical is concern, wait until you get the interview letter. The medical cannot be done until you have the official interview letter issued by NVC with MTL# and barcode on it. That is the first thing they will ask along with your valid passport.

From the date of issuance of the interview letter,you normally have 5 to 6 weeks. And in that time you can schedule your medical easily. I had to get the anti-body titer test for immunity, which take two weeks, and I had to travel for week. So I scheduled my medical three days before interview. Got my medical result in 48 hrs. Picked up the result and went straight to the airport. Next morning was my interview in MTL.

What you can do it check the panel doctor's website for required information and have your doctor fullfil the requirement. That is vaccination record and letter about your husband's general health.
