Please suggest meHow to add a newborn baby into an already submitted case file?
By the grace of almighty we are blessed with a bay. And we are changing our PP to MRP instead of Old one. After his birth I notify the VO through case specific inquiry as well as general inquiry & ask the proper way to inform SVGO (Mail/Fax with baby's PP, new Fees etc.). But they don't reply yet... I'm confused they expect my update or not!! Without their consent how can I sent the bay's PP, Fees etc. because there is always a chance of pending/rejection...
So please suggest me...
After we have applied for the Canadian PR process there would be occassions when an applicant has been blessed with a newborn baby. Now, if this baby isn't 'added' into our case file & we proceed to 'land' [given that we already have the meds/PPR/PRVs already, it'd be a serious 'misrepresentation of facts' & we could face twin problems... we may not be able to sponsor the baby after entering Canada, we might be deported & face a 2-yrs. ban.
Similalrly, if we r yet to receive our meds, and have a baby meanwhile, the situation might not be that complex, however it makes sense that we 'add' the newborn into our case file asap, else there could be inordinate delays if we don't or delay this action.
Remember, as with all family members [whether accompanying or otherwise] we need to get the baby's meds done; only then s/he could move with u... AND all the PRVs [PR Visas] of the entire family must be linked to each other... that's what the IRPA regulation specifies.
Nothwithstanding the foregoing, here's the procedure to 'add' the newborn into our PR case file:Advise the VO of a change to your family composition, send them a signed letter (the letter may be scanned and sent as an email attachment) providing them with all required changes to your file. The following information must be included in the letter:
- full name,
- date of birth,
- file number [Letter followed by a nine-digit number],
- telephone number, including area code,
- fax number, including area code, and
- mailing address How to add your child to your application:
Important: Note that if your child was born in Canada or if one parent is a Canadian citizen, then the child is a Canadian citizen. If that is the case, you do not need to add the child to your application, and no medical examination or fee is required. You must, however, send us a copy of the child's birth certificate. You should also contact the Consular section of the High Commission of Canada to make sure the child has the appropriate travel document.
You will be required to submit the following documents in order to add your child to your application:
- a letter explaining how your family composition has changed and requesting that your child be added to your application
- processing fee for the child (if accompanying you to Canada)
- updated IMM0008 Generic Application Form and updated IMM5406 “Additional Family Information” form for yourself and your spouse to include added child
- If the child is 18 years or older, an IMM0008, Schedule A and IMM5406 Additional Family Information Form
- notarized copy of the child's birth certificate
- copy of your child's valid passport(s) both valid and expired
- four recent passport-size photographs of your child according to the specifications
- if you applied as a Skilled Worker - updated proof of funds for number of family members to now include added child
- a “Certificat de Sélection du Québec” for your child ( in his or her name), if you are immigrating to the province of Québec (http://www.micc.gouv.qc.ca/fr/index.asp
Copies of the original documents with original certified translations into English or French are required.
