Did get an email from PC on Monday welcoming to the program and saying that paperwork will be coming during the week.

Now I have to travel within three weeks, I hope I will be able to get all paperwork done in that period, not sure if that's the case as I don't know what type of paperwork we are talking about.

You should be able to do the paperwork no matter where you are in the world, right??

Pretty much! I don't know if they will be asking the candidates to go for drug test or finger printing for background checks or what not. If candidate is based in US and is traveling overseas, it would be convenient for the candidate to get it done in US as opposed to figuring it out in a foreign country aka Old country!

I was thinking we could do all that in June and be ready to start on the 1st of July.

I signed mine yesterday. Most of my program's stuff is electronic. Be patient, it's a busy time and they know you're matched to their program... haha
