Major update from IRCC for Express Entry

Canada immigration has updated its Express Entry program to remove the upfront medical exam requirement, effective 1 October, 2023. This is a significant change, as it was previously a requirement for all Express Entry applicants and their family members.

With the removal of the upfront medical exam requirement, Express Entry applicants can now submit their applications without having to complete a medical exam. This will allow applicants to focus on other aspects of their application, such as preparing their supporting documents and submitting their language test results.

This is a positive update for Canada immigration and Express Entry applicants alike. It will help reduce the application process's time and cost, making it easier for people to immigrate to Canada.
