Default PNP Form IMM 5562

Hi everyone,

We are now at the stage of completing forms for our PNP after receiving out AINP Nominee certificate yesterday.

All done except for form IMM 5562 which is Supplementary Information: Your Travels.

They want to know all the times he has traveled outside his country of origin or residence. Pleasure & business.

As my husband is a truck driver he has traveled all over Europe and USA for his job.

Just wondered if any truck driver has already completed the form and how much information they included. I can track all the time he has traveled for work in the US as in Canada he runs from the log books, however for the time spent traveling in Europe we don't have a lot of details. We have got to go back to 2003!

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Blimey, what an impossible task for a long haul trucker. Have you asked VRV for any guidance? I've got another number you can ring if they don't help.

With the open borders in the EU, how on earth can they check up anyway?

I know Ian Cooper has done his, have you asked him?

Hi Alan, yes seems abit OTT.. can't really ask VRV as not using them, doing ourselves so might be abit cheeky

Spoke with Ian & he only put pleasure not business, so not sure which way to go really..

hows things with you guys?

We're good. Watt really nice to work for. Easy going, great home time. Will have to do my English test soon, I know it's booked up way in advance.

Will stay at Watt till at least PR. I just don't fit in with the likes of H&R. I really find all the macro, restricted fuel cards & hapless planning intolerable. Plus I am rather vocal.... Whitehorse attracts me as I'd love to do it, but it would be a big step back PR wise to do it now. I'd never stay there 2 years & they wouldn't want me there either!

There is a friendly immigration agent I have consulted from time to time, I'll PM you his number if you need it?

Hi Neil,

I spoke with CIC who advised to put down as much information as possible. Including work trips. As a long haul truck driver hired by a Canadian company, part of the criteria is you have European driving experience so she stated they would then expect some entries for the trips. I explained i was not able to give exact but only approx length of time, and she said put a covering letter in also to explain why only approx.

Some guys who have put down holiday trips only have got through ok, but she said that may have been down to the individual case officer be okay with it, so to be honest its the luck of the draw.

Hi Red ,sounds like you got a bit of a jobsworth,i just put in reference letters from the companies i worked ,no-one asked me if i did euro,it shouldnt be a problem if your husband is over here now and working you should get it,they are desperate for immigrants to stay in MB

Correction: The time working for a Canadian company outside Canada counts for maintaining your PR status. It DOESN"T count towards citizenship.

Never changed the goalposts. From the citizenship act.

Sub-section 5(1.1) was proclaimed in 1988. It treats residence for an applicant, as described in

Section 5(1.1) applies only where the Canadian citizen spouse is working with the public service of Canada or a province or for the Canadian armed forces.

You should know that "mr knowitall" as you disparagingly call him is in fact one of the most knowledgeable posters on the site as regards immigration matters. Pay attention to what he says. He knows his onions ! No need to be snarky !
