Default Landing as PR-Canada

Hi all,

I am picking up my Passport on Thursday from CHC and landing on Friday as PR.. I just wanted to ask anyone out there what the landing process is like? I expect it takes longer than it normally takes to get through immigration when entering as a visitor. Are there any other surprises waiting for me at the airport... interview, extra copies of documents I need to rush out and get, full cavity search etc etc....?

Thanks in advance.

Matt

There are a lot of posts on 'Landing' you just need to do a search. There's even a wiki article http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Landing_as_PR-Canada

We landed last Monday in Calgary and it was really easy. The Immigration Officer and the Customs Officer couldn't have been more helpful. We had all our paperwork ready, including goods to follow (2 copies). It obviously takes longer than a visitor. I would say it took us twenty minutes. They take you through the paperwork, ask you some questions, confirm how much money you are bringing with you and that's pretty much it.
There are numerous threads on landing here as has already been mentioned already.
