    Good News (we think)

    Wife landed this evening. Immigration took around two minutes. Queue time was less than those holding Canadian passports. Cheers to all for support and information. Good luck and take care, Mike

    How long to get through immigration upon PR arrival?

    Can anyone shed some light on how long it will take for my wife to clear immigration and customs at Pearson? Are there any questions posed at this process or do they just check the passport? Thanks Mike

    Good News (we think)

    Hi Phan, My wife just had her application processed through Singapore, she is Thai. I've been watching the posts here regularly and have not heard of anyone being interviewed by Singapore. We, too, were wondering about an interview but it was not requested. Unless your situation has some...

    The long and arduous wait is over as my wife received her passport and visa today. Graeme, you should be all cleared up next week if our times are a valid indicator. Mike

    Scared to Make the Move

    Sounds like you have a pretty good opportunity for a financially prosperous future in Australia. Canada may not afford you the same outcome. If you give up that future potential and fall flat in Canada that will eventually create resentments. Perhaps your wife can spend a few months in Canada...

    Graeme, I had assumed that your wife would receive final instructions before we would. It should arrive next week. We all put in our time here, mate. My wife left Canada in October to start the process from Thailand due to problems with her birth certificate. We originally banked on 3-4...

    Hi Guys, I emailed Singapore to get a time line because I am going to Thailand in a few weeks. I wanted to be able to plan an itinerary as when I am there my wife and I want to travel to Cambodia to visit Angkor Wat. Of course, she will be unable to travel if Singapore has her passport. It...

    Hi Catarina, I emailed Singapore and asked them how the time line for the remainder of the process. They emailed back a day later telling me that they just sent a letter to my wife requesting her passport. And that it will take two weeks to get it back to her once they receive it. Take care, Mike

    Right of PR payment!!!

    Hey fingers, I don't think that they really care where the payment comes from. Did you send a copy of your receipt to the Singapore office? My wife just went to the police station and they said that she can pick up her documents on the 28th. Has your wife gone, yet? The right of PR fee was...

    Advice on when to change legal name? and renew passport?

    My wife is in the process of finalizing her PR(just waiting for police certificates). We don't know if she should change her name on her passport while in Thailand, or to wait until she comes to Canada? Additionally, her passport expires in December. She will be arriving in Canada in August...

    Good News (we think)

    Hey gents, Singapore responded today that our interview was waived and that my wife's medical forms don't expire until October(1 year) and don't need to be redone. All that's outstanding is a Thai police certificate which we'll submit this week. So all is well here. Hopefully, Graeme will hear...
