Amazon has a couple of books that gives you papers etc. I have already given a University of Cambridge ESOL exam. It was for Business English. So i do not expect this to be a lot different than that. The best thing to do would be to brush up on your writing skills. Reading and Listening and speaking shouldn't be a problem if you have been working in U.S. Thats my gut feeling.

Good Luck

Send IELTS test results to my immigration attorney today - 20 days before the 120 days. Fingers Crossed.

I have received the following from my lawyer.

We have received your Medical Papers from the Canadian Consulate General, Detroit, pertaining to your Application for Permanent Residence in Canada. The concerned visa officer has made a preliminary review of your file and has decided that interview is not required in your case. However, the visa officer has asked for the following additional documents to be submitted to the Canadian Consulate General, within 90 days from their letter dated May 24, 2007.

* Right of permanent residence fees for you and your spouse i.e US $ 415.00 each payable to "Canadian Consulate General".
* Updated evidence of funds.

Does this mean my file has been transferred to the Detroit Consulate??? Also has my Initial Assessment been completed???

Hey Nachi,

Thanks a lot for the case update,
And congratulations for the next sep.
I was little late for submitting the IELTS exam result. though I just gave the exam.
My case is 5 days before yours. just hoping to get the medical papers anytime.
Are you from NJ, anysuggestion where should we go for medical,.
or can we do the medical before we get the papers. as I have to go out of country after a month
Any idea?

hi nachi, congrats on you IA. I did not yet hear anything since July 06, no IELTS etc. are you a single applicant and in Canada, or your lawyer pushed the IA for you. should I email buffalo and ask my status or request for speedy IA. it's been a long wait man.

I am from Chicagoland area. You can check the practitioners available in your area at http://www.cic.gc.ca/dmp-md/medical.aspx
But you would need to wait for the Medical Exam request from the Consulate as they send you a form that needs to be filled by the medical practitioner. They give you 90 days to do the medical exams.


I am applying with my wife. We are in Chicagoland and i did go through an Immigration consultant. I have no idea if you should email buffalo and ask for your status, but i remember reading on their website not to request for the case status etc from them.
