CIC Medical Exam Processing Time

April 8, 2022

Once you plan to visit Canada and have cause to meet with people, it’s mandatory to take an immigration medical exam. The available list of every panel physician Canada approves comes with their contacts, so you can easily book an appointment with an IRCC panel physician. The aim of a CIC medical exam is to ascertain your health status before entry, and it’s the duty of the panel physician IRCC approves to send your test results to eMedical for evaluation.

You may choose to have an upfront medical exam with a CIC panel physician or wait till after you apply. Be sure to bring a government-issued document with your photo and signature for an appointment with CIC panel physicians.

Because the test results may impact whether you’ll gain entry to Canada or not, it is in place for you to want to know what the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) think about your health records. How long it takes to see your test results depends on:

An Application for Temporary Residency

This permit covers visitors, students and workers. Since there’s a stipulated period of time for applicants under this category, your medical exam results will take about four weeks to process.

An Application for Permanent Residency

Say you want to apply as a permanent resident in Calgary, Canada, the test results of your Express Entry medical exam will take a longer time to process than that of another candidate applying for temporary residency. From the moment a CIC medical exam panel submits your test results, it takes about three months to have them processed.

Complicated Cases

In the event of a complicated medical case, it may take longer to process. Within this time, you may get a referral to a specialist to do special tests.

After processing your test results, you’ll be told what to do next if further documents aren’t required from you.
