    There have been quite a few persons to get email regarding passport request. Not just us. And a week later, your photos will be returned and in your mail address. I personally prefer email, as it shortens the waitime by a week or so. Koifish76

    From reading others previous landing experiences, it can take 20 mins to 2 hours plus. Since my wife is pregnant and travelling alone, we chose a 4 hour stopover. I will post a bit more next week after she lands about the experience and steps she had to follow. Also, on the "settlement...

    I know. I always said we put in so much time and effort into the applicant portion, and made a few mistakes with the sponsor part. But otherwise, i felt our application was very straightforward... We spent many months working on it and reading the forums before applying. Detailed trips and...

    Thanks everyone. We actually received better news today...pp ready for pickup. :D :D. Only took two weeks since we submitted. I feel its because we have medical expires on Nov 2. We also sent email asking for a little time to prepare move and book flight. We are definitely one of the lucky...

    :D :D :D Passport has been forwarded to VFS Bangkok on Oct 10!!!! Took exactly 2 weeks. Weird thing is, when we check vfs tracking, in english, still says "passport being processed in Singapore". But my wife, on a strange hunch decided to check the thai version or whatever, and it says...

    It sure is! We kinda blazed through the singapore vo. Incredibly fast and unexpected. As I mentioned, my wife is pregnant, due Jan 20...which means the 3 month wait for health should not be a problem either. And for her to have the baby here with me, means the world to us. Words can't...

    Yes indeed. When we got passport request, they asked us to "please advise if you are able to travel before your medical expires, Nov.2". Of course we did, and even so, were pleasantly surprised with the efficiency. In fact, the entire Singapore process has been wonderful, not so much the...

    Insurance and Pregnancy - Health Card, in which province is faster to get it?

    Wow, you simplify it so well...we have been stressing about this too much. And could I bother to ask where you heard Quebec can make possible exceptions for birth/pregnancy. Thanks a bunch Leon. Koifish76

    There seems to be a vast inconsistency regarding after decision made to when the passport is in hand with visa. Numerous posters have mentioned there is a "hold" time of anywhere from one to 4 weeks AFTER DM. Anyhow, spreadsheet is Updated.. ;D. Congrats to the 4 of you recently being able to...

    Insurance and Pregnancy - Health Card, in which province is faster to get it?

    Hi leon, if I can ask you, is there not a problem choosing quebec as your choice of residency? We are near finish, about to get passport back with visa, but have not gone through the quebec papers CSQ. And since my wife is due in January, i am trying to explore my options. I even work in...

    Yes, it is imperative that she has one of those seats with no one in front of her. Normally used for those with babies. But we do t want anyone forcing her to get up when ever they have to go to bathroom. She is pretty conscious about anyone hitting her belly by mistake. :P Ecas changed to In...
