It depends what is your country and what currency transfer restrictions (if
any) are there. If you need a permit to take money out of your country then
such bank statement won't work. Even if your country doesn't have
restrictions but is not one of the developed countries than examining
officer at the port of entry will most likely have no idea about that and
will not accept bank statement from your country.

Mr. Miller, found out about you much too late in my application process. after looking at the forums, I can safely say that you the most sought after imm professional on the web.

I got the request for the Passports recently from detroit. Sent them the passports (by FEDEX as instructed) May 08,03. they received the same on May 09,03. Thier letter stated that it takes 10 business days by courier as service standard. Havent received anything yet nor has the e-client status been updated since the interview last year.

1) it might be a naive question ; but, Does it take this long and is it usual for them to go beyond the service standard in returning the passports? or do you feel there is something wrong?

2) I have been in Canada with my family since the last 2 years on tempory resident status. At the time of landing at niagra falls will landing funds be an issue. I have a canadian bank account with a letter from the bank. will that suffice?

I will really appreciate any input & and hope you get the time to reply.

Moe

do you still need to prove your financial statement during the landing if you are already in Canada with a valid work permit (closed work permit)?
THANX

You don't need only if you received points for arranged employment. In all
other cases you need to show funds, even if you work in Canada.

Don't worry, you just picked a bad month, the 19th was a holiday and the
26th is a holiday, so I would think that the passport should be going out
this week.

When showing funds, is it ok to show the minimum required funds or it
must be higher than the required amounts? Thank you.

Showing required minimum during landing is sufficient. But if larger amount
was declared in the application then it will be good to have an explanation
for it. In many cases declared in the applications amounts have been among
factors considered to evaluate applicants' ability to succeed in Canada -
so, if it is the case with your application then be prepared to answer some
questions. Or you may get lucky and not be asked...

Your reply hit my concern. I am talking about the funds during the
application. How much is just right? Too much, as you said, the
applicant may have to explain it later. Do you have any good ideas to
balance it, proving the funds just matching the required amounts or
higher than the required ones or doesn't matter? Personally, I think
proving the minimum amounts seems just fine because it is required by
the CIC though it could be re-proved any amounts if it required to
update later or during the interview and landing. What is your
comment? Thanks.
