    Landing tips...and arriving with a pet!

    Thank you so much! Did you arrive in a direct flight to Vancouver? My only worry is that with the expensive flights on offer, I might have to take a flight with a long layover in Paris. I plan to pack a harness so that I can take the cat out in designated areas and at least step out of the...

    Bump. I know these are oft-repeated questions (particularly the part about the landing), and I've looked up some previous threads for information, but if anyone has any recent perspectives or advice, that would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Landing tips...and arriving with a pet!

    Hello guys, I hope this is the right forum section to discuss this particular topic. I'm planning to land sometime next month, in Toronto most likely. What kind of documentation do I need to provide to the immigration officer? Show them the passport stamp, the COPR form, anything else? What...

    FBI police certificate

    I think you'll have to address it yourself, unless you have a US address in your name. But it's worth checking with the rest of the board.

    Where to attach IELTS, WES?

    That's correct. But always best to err on the side of caution. Give them all the documents they need, so you don't waste time with the CIO asking for additional documents. Merge it all into one file, with separating placeholders/dividers if you wish.

    FBI police certificate

    No problem. Good luck! For reference's sake, my timeline from sending the courier with fingerprints and application to FBI, to receiving the certificate in the post was about 90-100 days.

    Failed to submit passport within 30days

    I guess this is a genuine worry for many people. It's a surprise to me that something as important as a PPR doesn't reflect in your myCIC account. Is the usual cut-off time for you to send your passport 30 days from the email? What are the main ways of checking your status, apart from the GCMS...

    URGENT! Police certificate translation help needed!

    Cover all your bases is my suggestion. Provide the certificate in the original language, along with a certified English or French translation.

    Recd COPR and ppr

    I already paid the RFRF upfront; what would the difference be then?

    Recd COPR and ppr

    That's exactly what I'm thinking, although I'm known to be paranoid :) In that case, isn't it worthwhile calling or emailing CIC?

    FBI police certificate

    Yes, as long as you provide some kind of proof that you applied for the clearance in a reasonable time period, they will be fine with this. Courier receipts, etc. Just be proactive, and use the LOE to make all explanations.

    First change to 'Background Check' status

    Thanks hamgha I didn't receive a message or email about me passing my medical, however. Also, I've payed for the RPRF up front. When you say email, do you mean the notification that you have a new message in your myCIC inbox?

    First change to 'Background Check' status

    Thanks for being so helpful. Just a couple more questions: 1) What exactly happens in this phase? They assess whether you are eligible for the program applied for? 2) Did you get a message in your inbox about the change to your Background Status check (from NA to In Progress)?

    First change to 'Background Check' status

    Thank you for the reply. Is there a rough estimate for how long the phase between NA2 to IP2 is?
