Subject: Reply from CIC - and now horribly confused !!
  Guys pls help,
I had just asked for my medical status and here is the reply I received from them....
The gist is, CIC wants me to pay the RPRF within 30 days of "THIS LETTER" as mentioned in the text below. Am I supposed to get any paper document from them or should I consider this e-mail to be the same and are they not going to send me the document requesting RPRF. Also in case I have to send them the RPRF, I don´t have to send them my passport now do I ????

I am totally confused, please help !!

----------------------------------------------------------------------
The processing of your application to immigrate to Canada has reached
the stage where the Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF) must be
paid. Every principal applicant and his/her spouse, common-law or
conjugal partner, who meets the admission requirements for permanent
residence in Canada must pay the Right of Permanent Residence Fee in
the
amount of $490 in Canadian funds or $445 in U.S. funds per person.

Payment must be made by certified cheque, bank draft or money order.
Fees remitted in Canadian funds must be drawn on a major Canadian bank.
Fees remitted in U.S. funds must be drawn on a major U.S. bank.

Fees must be made payable to the "Canadian Consulate General." This fee
is refundable in the event that you decide not to proceed to Canada for
landing.

You must remit your Right of Permanent Residence Fee(s) within 30 days
of the date of this letter. Delaying the payment of the Right of
Permanent Residence Fee may result in further processing requirements.

We must also caution you that the final decision regarding your
application will be made sometime after the Right of Permanent
Residence
Fee is paid. Therefore, you should not give up employment, dispose of
property or commit yourself in any way until you have received the
final
immigration documents.

If any of the information you provided on your application form has
changed (i.e. marital status, family composition including expecting a
child, funds available, medical problems), it is imperative that you
contact this office for advice before submitting your Right of
Permanent
Residence Fee. Your admissibility may be affected.

Relax Raj,

I think the letter is very clear. All they are asking you is to pay the fee; so do not send the passport.

You will be fine. In worst case scenario if the final decision on you case is negative the will refund the fee.

Brian/Sharon.... Thanks for your response.... but you see this was not a letter.... its an e-mail response, so is this IT ? or should I expect a PAPER document from CIC in the mail....

Ok, no need to send passport, thats good. I think I will go ahead and send in the RPRF fees too.

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion !

The email is clear so what else do you want them to say? Just follow the instructions and pay the fees. If I were you, I will print the email and send it along with the payment. Use a courier service that you can track receipt of your document and go to bed. I believe from your questions, you are very anxious now but it is allowed but try not to be paranoid. The letter is self explanatory. Pay your money and further instructions will be sent to you for PP request.

Yeah send them the money. I hear they are corresponding through email in a lot of cases...even PPRs believe it or not.

For now just send them the money. Once you do, you´ll probably receive your PPR in a matter of weeks. Congrats! You´re almost done.

The e mail means ´we are so sorry considering this application of yours´ since you lack some reading skills....
