Default Landing alone vs. as a family

Dear all,

(Still) anticipating the arrival of the paperwork, in the mean time:

Is there any (legal) reason why I should land (for the first time) with all persons
on the application? Could I e.g. during an preparatory visit, as the main applicant
"land" officially, and start things like registering for Health Care etc. (find a
house etc...) and go back to pick up the family later, and have them go throught the
landing process at that time? Or am making things more difficult than I should?

Thanks for any comments,

Frans

You may land separately, providing that principal applicant lands first. But you will
be able to apply for your own SIN and health cards only - rest of the family members
can do it after they arrive.

and the family members should also land before there Visas expire i.e. within one
year from the Medical.

Thanks for your answers. I apologize for asking the question, that was basically
answered in a thread just briefly before I posted it. I should try and read back a
while on this group before I shoot off my worries to the group.

That said, I really appreciate the possibility of asking the odd question, and
reading about other people's experiences. It makes me realize that other folks are
having a much harder time than we had sofar.

We received the interview waiver at the end of November last year, after my
application had been received in Berlin on the 11th of September (really!). The
medical took a while, mainly because Dutch doctors refused to perform certain tests,
requested by the medical service in Vienna, on a person that was fully healthy
according to their opinion. We found a way out, and now, since the end of June, my
case is back in Berlin for further processing. We are eagerly anticipating the
arrival of the final paperwork. In the mean time I'm doing my best to keep all
contacts warm with prospective employers in Calgary and Edmonton that I met in
February/March.

I realize that our progress is still very smooth compared to some, and wish the best
of luck to all those that are trying to get away from situations not in any way
comparable to ours.
