Default What now?

Hi everyone,
Im doing inland application for permanent residence. My wife is sponsoring
me. After many many months of hoping and waiting, I just about got a heart
attack when I say "Decision Made" on my E-Client.
Now Im waiting for the letter, but Im going to go crazy if I don't figure
out what the following means (right off the e-client website)
*****************************

We received your application for permanent residence on November 21, 2002.

We started processing your application on January 07, 2003.

We received a letter from you on April 15, 2003. Thank you for providing the
information.

Medical results have been received.

We sent you a letter on September 24, 2003 to (my address) about approval in
principle for you to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. If we have sent
the letter to the wrong address, please contact us. Thank you.

We sent you a letter on September 24, 2003 to (my address) about the
decision on your application. If we have sent the letter to the wrong
address, please contact us. Thank you.


************************
Up to medical results has been on there since 15th of April and they posted
all this in one morning.

Ive been reading and looking around on the web, and it seems like as if they
approved me, but from what I understaind the interview still follows.
Is this correct? If it is can anyone give me some info on what kind of
questions do they ask, and any other info you can think of. Im apsolutely
terrifed of this interview, Im affraid I will get scared, and just freeze.

I really don't know what to expect, Ive been waiting for so long, and I
can't sleep now thinking about this.
Can someone please give me some info and possibly offer me a piece of mind.

Thank you so very much

Worry yee not.

The "interview" for the inland class after approval is not an interview
in the same way as an interview during the process. It is a landing
interview and really it is pretty much the same deal as what an outside
applicant gets when they arrive at the airport or border. Your file will
have been sent to your local CIC office who will finish it off and then
send you a letter with a date. You then go there and basicaly fill in
some info and they affix a confirmation of landing document into your
passport. The only real questions they are going to ask you are the
formal ones about changes in circumstance such as have you got a
criminal record or has your family situaiton chnged etc. Standard stuff.

Really you are near to the edn now and it is just a formailty so don't
worry about it.

Hi,

Don't worry - it's not really an interview at all.

It's basically so the immigration officer can 'land' you and take your
information/signature for the permanent resident card. At this time you
will also receive your 'confirmation of permanent residence' paper.

He/she will probably simply ask you one or two security questions, such
as "Do you have a criminal record". But seriously, it's nothing to
worry about - you'll be in and out within 10 minutes! Take your wife in
with you too if you want.

Congratulations!

Hmmm, interesting
so basically you are saying its like Im already approved. I thought in order
to land you still had to go to the border,
make what they would call a u-turn (so I don't have to go to the states).
Also who has to go on the interview, these responses confused me a
bit. I have to, my wife has to, or both? That is not a big issue, just
wondering. So you said they will ask if I have criminal record, which I
don't,
but I find that a bit funny, becuase Ive sent a criminal record search to
them and fingerprints, and all that other stuff. Also, beside that, is there
any
other questions.
Couple more probably dumb questions. Should I bother applying for work
permit, or not? Is there any use for it, if they are relatively fast.
Also, how long does it take to get a permanent resident card. And the last
question. I come from a country that needs an entrance visa (for
student visa, work visa, visitor, etc). When I get a PR card, do I still
need to obtain an entrance visa if I end up going for a visit.

Thank you guys for your info, Ill probably have lots more questions, but
that is it for now

Hi,

I'm assuming you are talking about the inland spouse application, the
one where you apply to Vegreville? I was answering from personal
experience (no expert here!) - so if the above is true, then you should
have a similar experience.

Your final letter of approval will come shortly, and you should also get
a letter from your local immigration office - thats where you normally
go to 'land'. I went to the office in Calgary, since that is where I live.

I was the only person who had to attend the 'interview', but I took my
wife along just in case there was any difficulties (she is good at those
sort of things!). Personally, I didn't bother with a work permit, I
didn't feel like paying CIC yet another $150 just to work a month or two
earlier. My PR card took about 5 weeks if I remember correctly.

As for your other question (entrance visa) I won't pretend to know the
answers, so maybe somebody else will. I'm from UK so before getting PR,
I just needed to use a passport (now it's passport + PR card).

Hope it helps!
Simon
