Default Landing Question for Mr. Miller, PMM and other experts

I would just like to ask. Do I need to show settlement funds if I land with intention to leave immidiately (probably without even stepping out of the airport) just so the visa does not expire?

Is this possible?

It is just that I have to settle some things in home country (finish MBA and other things) before finally moving permanently to Canada but visa will expire before I can do all of this.

Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Your landing procedure is completed the very first time you use your PR visa, so you need to show proof of fund.

The next time you come into Canada(assuming you statisy the PR requirements) you don't have to go through any of the PR landing processes.

Proof of funds is an absolute must to carry when you land in Canada for the first time regardless of the length of your stay. I used the same day bank ATM statement.

Good luck!

When you enter Canada , you officially "Land" in the country as a PR.

You HAVE to complete all basic required formalities and Proof of funds is one of them.
You would also have to apply for SIN, OHIP is not required till you are present in the country for 3 months.

Y!

Do you still need to have a proof of funds when you are coming from within Canada with Working status if you are going to do your Landing at the border??

Well , if his intentions are to land and then return to where he came from originally he would need the SIN, bank accounts etc to prove his intent of staying in Canada later as a returning resident.
