Re: Dutch Police Certificate/COVOG

When I applied for this, the instructions from the CIC website told me to send off the request form (all in English) to the Canadian embassy in Berlin, who then filled it out and stamped it, then...

How long did your PR card take?

Hi, just a quickie..

Those of you who've recently landed, how long did it take for your PR card to be mailed out to you? I know we were officially told 4-6 weeks, but I have a pressing travel...

Re: Nag to get your requests :-)

Congratulations! Emailing worked for me too.

Add 'PHEP Processing' to the start of the address on top of the letter they attached. It stands for Photo Height Eye Passport, if I remember...

Re: Commona Law partner and proof thereof

We completed the common-law declaration, and that is the only form that you need - no documents need to be drawn up. The idea is that a commissioner of oaths meets you both in person, confirms you...

Re: PR and Pregnancy?

If it puts your mind at rest, I just activated my PR (we already lived in Canada on work permits) and I'm visibly pregnant. Nobody questioned it at all.

Re: Notary or not

We didn't get anything notarised either, no problems. Although the declaration of common law union did have to be witnessed by a commissioner of oaths.

Re: Do we need to attach self-adderessed pre-paid envope with passport

It took just 10 days for my passport to arrive from London, UK to Canada via CIC's postal method. I thought that was pretty quick! (Considering it was Royal Mail and Canada Post signed for. ;) )

Re: Waiting for PR card but want holiday

I agree that waiting is better, but the immigration officer that dealt with my landing said that if we must travel outside of Canada before we get our cards, then make sure to apply for any...

Finally, it's all done

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU! This forum has been a massive help for me as I made my way through the Canadian immigration process. In particular, PMM and Chumley have probably saved my...

Re: Fastrack PR...whys it taking so long?

Great news, Tracy!

Just to update my tale of woe, we got PPRs this month and are awaiting their return. So no need to start another LMO process - woo! :D

Re: in-canada landing - anyone done it?

Or "seek and ye shall come back empty handed" in my case. I promise I did try! ;) Thanks PMM. That's the bulletin I had previously bookmarked.

Re: Do we need to attach self-adderessed pre-paid envope with passport

I didn't bother, since they only ask for a self-addressed envelope, and many people here reported that courier labels/envelopes were just ignored. I didn't want to complicate or confuse matters.

Re: Starting the process - advice?

Canadian immigration is nothing like USA immigration. It's far less intimidating, although much more enigmatic, in my experience.

I was just saying to my partner yesterday that I'm so glad we...

Re: in-canada landing - anyone done it?

Nope! :p Anything that requires me to worry about border crossings ain't top of my list of things to do. I'm happy to just get the PR card and have a party.

Re: Received CAIPS......

I understand completely, as my FT application via London was taking far longer than expected. It turns out that being patient doesn't always get rewarded, and my application was only ever moved on...

Re: in-canada landing - anyone done it?

If I could do this at my local CIC, then I might just go for it then. Is there any list of offices that provide this service?

It sounds less nerve-wracking. ;)

What kind of timeline do you have? It sounds as though you've hit an unlucky pile awaiting review.

in-canada landing - anyone done it?

Has anyone successfully activated their PR status in Canada?

The link on the wiki regarding this alternative to flag-poling is dead, and I don't recall ever reading about anyone doing it.

Is there no way to rectify the situation? Now that the electronic visa waiver application (sorry, I can't think of the correct terminology!) has to be made online in advance, can you not use that...

Re: Any extra points for having kids?

If you have a baby in Canada, then you'll get yourself a Canadian relative. Can you get points that way? :D
