    LPR (Green Card) and PR!?

    Hello all, I have sponsored my wife a few months back from the US. She has received her PR card. Now she needs to travel to the States. As I learnt, she requires a visitor's visa to enter the states. She also still has her LPR (Green Card from the States). And I believe, that she has 12 months...

    COPR paperwork - character limit on names or spelling mistake? Advice please!

    Same thing happened in my case too. My wife's name was mis-spelled in both CROP as well as the Visa. I contacted Visa office, Buffalo right away, and I was told that it's just shortened in the CROP and Visa; however, in the system it's correctly spelled out. When we landed, and advised the...

    Shipping personal belongings from US to Canada.

    Hello everyone, I am in the process of packing up my stuff to move to Canada. My house-hold belonging is going to be too much to carry it with me in the plane. I was thinking, if it's better (cheaper) to ship it by some sort of carrier seperately. i.e. a typical laguage or two, which can weigh...

    Should I be worried...

    At what stage is your application? How long it has been 'in progress' state? What was the last letter/message that you got from the visa office?

    Stop in a different city than the final distination.

    Thank you guys for the input. I'd booked the ticket yesterday, and I have a grace period of 24 hours to cancel, meaning that won't get penalized for cancellation if done within 24 hours. Then, I guess, I will re-book another one which directly lands in Edmonton. Because, there's not enough time...

    Stop in a different city than the final distination.

    Deal all, If my final destination is--say Edmonton--and I book a ticket from US that has a stop--say in Vancouver--Then my port of entry would be considered Vancouver BC and not Edmonton AB. Would that be any problem? or cause any un-necessary delay at landing? Or I'm simply paranoid? I have...

    What have you noticed is different in Canada?

    Really!? I've always thaught the other way around! In Canada, heathcare is not privatized; whereas in the U.S. it is, which means more $. As far as the quality of service: I guess you receive about the same level of service for both.

    Congratulations and thanks for this useful information. I am packing up at the moment and soon be heading too. If you can give any advise like Dos and Don'ts, that would be great.
