Hello All (PMM),
It is a very new information about this one year requirement
I landed canada in may 06. I have wp till aug. 07. I want to apply for PR, can I do it or not ??
PMM i will appreciate ur inputs in my case. I got wp extended one time also.
1. If you are admitted to Canada for a year, then you can apply either to Buffalo as well as to the office that handles the country of your normal residence. Note the word is ADMITTED, you don't have to be in Canada for a year to apply.
2. If you apply to Buffalo, you should be aware that if you require a US visa to attend an interview in the US and you don't have one, it is very unlikely US Immigration will issue one.
3. Also the processing in Buffalo will most likely be longer than their quoted times, as they will have to the office responsible for your home country verify your documents, and that takes time.
