Default Surname for Family Class from India - Mr. Miller and other experet plesas

Good Morning

I sponsored my wife and she has received a letter from High Commission that
" we have receive you application for p. r. in Canada........

As the next step in the processing of your application, please send your
original valid passport and the passports of each of the family members
accompanying you to Canada. Please ensure that your surname is indicated in
your passport. (The names Kaur and Singh do not qualify as surnames for the
purpose of Immigration to Canada).

My question is that what should we do. Her last name/surname is Singh and
that's one we have used on the application. Sing surname is on the passport.
Is this clause is standard for everyone from India?

If any one of the readers have experience, pleases share your experience.

Thanks.

Gurpal:

I was in a similar situation. My last name is Singh. I migrated to Canada in
2000 without changing my last name to family name. I applied for my wife in
2002 November with the same name. Ironically her's was "Kaur". She got her
immigration in March 2003. We did not change our names.

I have heard that you should have a family name other than Singh and Kaur.
My parents have our surname (family name) as last. My surname history made
the application look wierd as I did not share the same surname as my
parents. But, by the grace of Waheguru, all went well.

I do not think they consider that as a high prioirity, but they can always
create an issue. It all depends who is the visa officer.

Canadians have a long way to come to handle documents. They have the world's
worst document management system. Yes - you read it right - worst. They lost
some of my papers and threatened me to close my file - if they did not
receive those documents. I then faxed those papers daily for a week, mailed
copies three times the same week.

All the best with your application.
