    taxes - my outland app husband living with me in Canada

    I'm a Canadian citizen. Last year my husband and I applied via outland application, from the US, for him to become a Canadian permanent resident. We then moved to Canada while the app was pending (so to anyone who asked, he was a "visitor"). I'm in the process of completing my tax return, and I...

    are you in the system if something is missing?

    (sponsoring my spouse) I know that if your application is deemed complete, you get AOR via email (or at least, you should). But if something is missing, they'll mail the application back without emailing you, is that correct? Are you still in their "system" if you apply and something is missing...

    change of address (US to Canada)

    Here with an update! We've gotten some forwarded mail, so it looks like the form worked out. I'm not sure what would happen if someone tried to send something larger than a standard-size envelope, but for regular mail, it seems to be fine so far.

    How to deal with CBSA (multiple entries)

    Hi all, My husband and I recently applied outland for his PR from the US. We are moving to Montreal next week (we have an apartment lined up). We're going by plane. My parents are flying here and roadtripping back to QC with our car, so they'll be crossing the border with it (they'll have a...

    change of address (US to Canada)

    Sure thing! You can definitely send me a message in a few weeks to remind me, since moving is so crazy I'll unfortunately probably forget... This also seems useful: https://www.usa.gov/post-office. Especially the part about changing your address with government agencies, good reminder to deal...

    change of address (US to Canada)

    Thank you! At least the Walgreens had software to explain what to do! I went to a UPS once to get my Canadian passport photos done, since I phoned in advance and they told me they could take photos following the Canadian specifications. I mailed in the photos and they turned out to not be...

    change of address (US to Canada)

    Hi there, We went to the post office today to complete a Change of Address form and hand it in, since USPS.com states: You cannot submit a Change of Address online from an international address. If you are moving to an International address outside of the United States, you will need to fill...

    prescription medication (outland PR application)

    I'm applying outland for my husband's PR, so he will be a visitor when we enter Quebec next month. He has some extra prescription medication, but I'm not sure what to do when he needs more. Could he go to a clinic in QC with his current prescription and the doctor would prescribe him the same...

    outland application + signing a lease

    Hi there, My husband and I live in the US, so I understand that with my application, I would have to provide proof that I'm moving back to Canada. We're looking for an apartment so that we can sign a lease and move in when we get there, and also use the lease as proof that I'm going. What I'm...

    US citizen traveling while inland app is processing

    Thanks scylla! Any chance you know about the passport thing - whether a passport would show a pending application, or just entry dates?

    US citizen traveling while inland app is processing

    I'm wondering about the border risks involved if a US passport-holder leaves Canada for a couple of weeks while an inland application is in progress. I'm Canadian, my husband is American. We live in the US right now but are looking to move to Canada within the next few months. If we apply...

    Canadian moving to QC with American spouse

    Thank you! Just to clarify: if we applied outland and didn't want to move separately, we'd have to wait for the application to be finalized, right? Otherwise we'd have to apply inland from Montreal? (I wasn't sure if you meant he could come to Canada as a visitor and then go back to the US to...

    Canadian moving to QC with American spouse

    Hi there, I'm a Canadian living in the US with my husband, who is a US citizen. We're looking to move to Montreal, and I've been trying to do the research we need. I'm wondering if the basic knowledge I have so far is correct: we could enter Canada without having to do paperwork beforehand...
