Subject: Medical results have been received.
  I did my medicals on 25th Sep 07. The staus in e-CAS finally changed today (after 5 months)to "Medical results have been received".

So, how long will it take for Buffalo office to send me the Passporst request?

I am in Canada and I am planning to go to my home country for two months.

I need to know how much time do they give to send out the passports from the date of their letter..

You should receive passport request in about 1-3 weeks. This is what usually happens.

You are given 30 or 60 days to submit your passport for visa stamping.

Samm,

Thanks for your response. 1-3 weeks is good news...

But I would like to know exactly 30 or 60 days.

I am leaving on 18th march 07 for two months.

It depends, some people are given 30 days, others 60 days (usually). RPC Buffalo is not very strict about the passport submission deadline and extension is easily granted. You can inform RPC about the delay in submitting the passport and everything will be fine.

To put your mind at ease. My friend´s PPR was already in mail when he updated RPC with his new address. So, RPC sent him another PPR letter with new deadline (60 days from the date on the new letter) to submit the passport.

Let me tell you something.
My Ecas changed to Medicals Received on February 11 and I AM STILL WAITING. So I would doubt the "about 1-3 weeks" from Samm.

Basically you will get your PPR when the background check is over and your case has been reviewed one more time for final checking. Ecas seems unreliable so I would not get excited too quickly.

You never know when it is going to be over. Just be patient and don´t make plans until everything is finalized.

CBV333,
It´s not excitement. As far as BG check goes, I am already in Canada for over 2years on WP. My company´s lawyer said that my last WP extn. in Sept07 took 4.5 months since it was flagged for CSIS BG check. (funny but it is true)
So CIC have all my BG check record (though it was against my Client ID)
I am concerned only for the reason that I should not miss the PPR cutoff dates, if I receive the PPR request when I am on vacation.
Also if you can elaborate more on your suggestion of " don´t make plans until everything is finalized". Do you mean I should not leave Canada till my PR !!!!
What way will it effect my application if I go for vacation and comeback??

I donon´t want to be stuck till my PR is finalized.

CBV333,

Usually when e-cas is updated to "Medical results have been received" people receive PPR in matter of weeks. Infact, some people receive it the very same day. However, what you said is also true. PPR is not issued till background checks are over. Thats why in my first post I said "This is what usually happens".

YJ, you can leave Canada and ask someone to check mails for you. You will have sufficient time to submit passport. In case of any delays in passport submission, you can inform CIC about the same.

Nobody wants to get stuck before getting PR.

You said you are concerned if you receive your PPR while on vacation well then DON"T GO ON VACATION if you are afraid of this. I am telling you this because we are on the same situation and yes we put our life on hold and even missed a family wedding because we had the same concern. PPR is the most important thing for us so we did not want to take a chance.

Of course you can take your vacation and have someone checking your mail. It is up to you. I believe it is better not to take a chance, that´s all.

Samm

I wish what "usually happens" also happens to me. I heard also once your ecas change you get it within a few weeks. It did not happen for us though.

Thanks for your views.

It´s all luck, I guess.

All the best CBV33 & Do post when you receive your PPR.

Dont expect PPR in 1 to 3 weeks, because my e status changed to "Medical results have been received" 3 months back, still now i didn´t hear any thing from cic.
