IRCC published a new temporary public policy for foreign nationals
On June 30, 2021, the Government of Canada published a new temporary public policy that exempts some foreign nationals from having to complete an additional immigration medical exam as part of their application for permanent residence (PR) or for a permanent resident visa (PRV).
The policy applies to foreign nationals residing in Canada who have submitted or have a pending application for PR or for a PRV and have not yet completed a new immigration medical exam;
or those who have completed an immigration medical exam within the last 5 years and were found not to pose any risk to public safety or health;
and those who have not left Canada for more than 6 months in the last year to live in another country that possesses a higher incidence of a serious communicable disease than Canada.
New instructions will be in effect until December 28, 2021.
