Default BC pnp nomination

Hi everyone so last night we had the best news ever we received our nomination yay!!!!!. Thankyou to everyone on this forum for your help and experience. So now to tackle the next stage so just 1 more question just does not make sense to me, I will start my PR application tomorrow adding my PNP nomination to it as well we have received a work permit letter so my question is I also apply for a work permit as well wait for that to be processed (5-7weeks) then book our flights. I've also heard you can fly over there with your nomination and receive your work permit at the port of entry is that correct because it sounds to obvious or am I missing something? Hope this makes sense, thankyou again tamasin

If you hold a passport from a non visa country such as the UK, France, Germany etc you will need to apply for eTA and on arrival in Canada produce the PNP nomination letter and job offer/contract and pay the relevant fees. If its an Open work permit then its $155 + $100.

We came in August on my husband's pnp nomination. We had the nomination confirmation, job confirmation letter, medical forms, confirmation of pr application and police checks. We were given 2 year open work permits on point of entry in Vancouver. All very easy and straight forward (and didn't cost anything!) - just make sure you're organised with all your paperwork.

Hello again I've researched all your answers and finally got all the paperwork needed to fly out after Christmas, my 1 last question is the only thing that has not been mentioned is confirmation of application for PR, will the CBSA officer ask for this as well? Hope former Lancastrian can answer me. Again thankyou all so very much for all your help and guidance I just wanted to get things right before we fly over.

On arrival the CBSA officer will be wanting to see the PNP nomination letter as in post #2. They won't need to see the confirmation of PR application as many have not even submitted it prior to arriving. The PNP letter is an indicator that you will be applying for PR at some stage.

We are landing 20th November with a PNP nomination and plan to sort work permits at the port of entry

I have already submitted my PR application so have copies of all the paperwork submitted for that and the PNP just in case its asked for.

I was told by the folk who assisted me in the PNP that all I needed to pay for up front was the $100 open work permit fee for my wife so I have arranged this and have the receipt to bring along with the job offer, PNP and confirmation of need letters

If woking hands on with children then yes a medical is required and you won't be issued a work permit until the results are known.
Define working with children.

Jobs for which you need a medical exam
You may have to get a medical exam because of the type of job you want to do in Canada. Examples of such jobs are:

Jobs that bring you into close contact with people, such as:
workers in the health sciences field
clinical laboratory workers
patient attendants in nursing and geriatric homes
medical students admitted to Canada to attend university
medical electives and physicians on short-term locums
teachers of primary or secondary schools, or other teachers of small children
domestics
workers who give in-home care to children, the elderly and the disabled
day nursery employees and
other similar jobs
Medical exam requirements for temporary residents (visitors, students and workers)

Our whole family had to do the medical for my husband to work as a doctor. You might want to check if that's the case for you. You'll also need your police checks to work with children.

Are you sure? Or was it that the whole family had to have a medical for Permanent Residency, regardless?
