Default Landed in Toronto 2 hours ago!

Wow, was that easy or what!

My plane touched down just after 3pm. But despite having a very comfy seat thanks to my British Airways employed brother, I couldn't sleep on the flight, so I was feeling a bit worse for wear when I got to the passport control.

After explaining to a very young and confused looking passport control officer that I wanted to land, I was directed to the Immigration Control Office along the corridor.

There were only two other people there, a Russian couple in front of me who smiled at me in a "we're both going to be Canadian!" kind of way.

The officer who dealt with my case didn't ask for proof of funds and basically just asked for my Canadian address and got me to sign the forms. Stamp, stamp and that was it! I was then sent to get my welcome to Canada pack and a few minutes later had my bag and was out in arrivals. The whole process only took 5 minutes ...completely stress-free but perhaps a little anticlimactic.

I'd like to thank everyone on this board for all the great advice and support that's been given over the last 2 years, couldn't have coped without it.

All the best everyone and I hope you all enjoy Canada as much as I'm going to!

Tim.

PS - How can I post a pic?

Fantastic! So glad you made the flight ok! I was thinking about you in the collection queue at the High Commission yesterday!

By the way - great mittens!
