I'll start...


1. The 120 day letter/email should come from this address: [email protected] - Add it to your safe list if youre waiting for it

Treat your PR application like an exam, read all the forms, take your time and triple check everything.

My tip - Create a new email address that is only used for your visa application. It's less likely to be spammed in the time between you creating it and your 120 Day email arriving, and it can be a tidy way to contain any email conversations you might have with CIC.

Before committing to the process be sure that you are on the LIST and have sufficient points to avoid disappointment and losing some of your cash.

Keep everything in a folder, receipts, copies, postage printouts etc and also a diary with all your immigration info tracked in it. This way if you ever need something it will all be in one place !!

This is going well!!


6. Start collecting things that would be requested by the 120 day letter as soon as possible! As soon as it arrives you can send the requested docs off saving a month or more of time

(… I noticed a lot of people hadn’t done this (me neither!! – I thought I could do it later as the 120 day letter would take ages to come, but it comes sooner than you think!!))

7. Check Passport Expirey dates.....you may want to renew these before you leave so that they have plenty of time left on them.

8. Phone around the Designated Medical Practioners (DMP) and see where the cheapest and easiest option is so that you know how much to budget for in the case of a medical request

Never leave any boxes blank. If the question is not applicable write NA or the whole application will be returned as incomplete
