Re: Assimilate, or try and stay British

I'm looking forward to throwing myself itself the whole process of assimilating. I actively want to assimilate. I just can't imagine not doing so. I guess I have an "advantage" in that I really can't...

Re: Exipirey of PR....

It strikes me that a lot of people seem to fixate on their PR cards and when they expire when, at the end of the day, they are really only little pieces of plastic and what they really, really ought...

Expired Passport and entering the UK

A purely hypothetical question (honestly!). It's just something I've wondered about.

Let's say someone is a dual-national, British and something else. They let their British passport expire and...

Canadian Affairs uses both Air Transat and Thomas Cook Airways. Looking at their websites, Air Transat allows one piece of carry-on and a laptop, while Thomas Cook only allows one item.

Re: Canada to the USA by air, what do I do.

The US immigration people will treat you exactly the same way as they would if you were flying there from the UK. Your Canadian PR status is irrelevant to them.

Do you know if you are elligible...

Re: Can you get a Student Visa at the Buffalo High Commission?

Off topic, but it is a pet hate of mine that just plain bothers me when I keep reading people calling the High Commission in London the Canadian "Embassy". I thought that that was bad enough, but a...

Re: Please Advice

Which is pretty irrelevant. I assume from your posts that you aren't a US citizen and you clearly aren't a Canadian citizen. What exactly is your status in the US? You can't be a permanent resident...

Re: Fast-tracked Canadian visa could be implemented

Sorry, but I think that I'd urge a note of caution here. I think the people that are still waiting from 06/07 should be optimistic and positive that their applications will be processed faster than...

Re: Fast-tracked Canadian visa could be implemented

No, not really. Sure, the people applying under the new scheme are obviously getting their applications processed much faster than ours (the 06/07 applicants) were/are, but on the other hand the...

Re: Emigration Problems

The visa is only valid for one year from the medical or until any of the passports expire, whichever is sooner. They aren't going to give you an extension or transfer it to another passport, you need...

Re: IT jobs in Alberta

I don't understand why they're interviewing in Toronto for jobs based in Alberta. :confused: Wouldn't it have made more sense to do the interviews in, oh say, Edmonton for example?
