    HELP PLEASE! Airline denied boarding with valid COPR (issued before March 18 2020)

    Yes seems like Airline fault. I first came by KLM to Vancouver and I was not posed any such problems with my COPR. Anyway, you can try Air Canada instead. Not the best but at least it will work. Just make sure that immigration process will happen at the first city of landing in Canada.

    Soft Landing Experience - issues faced with Customs, Immigration & Banking with associated Questions

    You my friend worry too much. No need to complicate stuff. You’ll be treated as PR even if you do “soft” landing. All Experiences you had were normal. Based on what you described it seems you got yourself in long wait times which were not necessary (quoting your example with customs officer and...

    Confirm it because I'm little bit confused about the procedure of payment. Is it real or fake?

    AOL? Lol.. It's sad to see so many applicants are lured by fake immigration emails. It is a fake email. So many grammatical errors, contact information of third party email accounts and asking for personal information. Please don't click any links, contact any person or open any attachments.

    Best way to send money to India?

    Use online services such as Transfer Wise or Xoom. They provide good rates and direct deposit option to all major banks in India. I tried to send a lumpsum through Transferwise and it got delivered in like 3-4 days.

    How to show Proof of Funds during entry in Canada?

    Hey guys, I'd like to share my experience of what happened after coming to Canada. I landed in Vancouver Airport and went straight to immigration. They didn't ask me any questions about proof of funds. I filled out PR forms and gave them my address and that's it.

    Virtual Canadian number

    Hello, I used Fongo world before coming to Canada. It still works like a charm. It has an option to select a province as well plus no monthly charge. I'm not sure about AVOXI. Regards

    How a New PR works in Ontario as self employed

    Hello, I am not an expert here. But I think you can work here as self-employed and issue invoice to your company from here. Then at the year end you have enough documents to show in tax-return. You can give your current employer your new bank details once you have it. You'll have to follow...

    Can you convert International Driving License to a Canadian one

    Also note that a your home country driving license is fit to drive for only for specific time from date of landing (as long as it's not expired). After that both your driving license as well as international permit will not be valid for driving. I think the time frame for Ontario is around 60...

    You need to enter Canada at the ports listed above. They will check your COPR document and stamp a landing date on it. Save this document as it is very important as a proof of landing. Once you give them your address, they will send your PR card to this address. For me, it took like six-eight...

    Applying for Schengen visa as a Canadian PR

    HI there, Schengen visa is quite easy to get if all the documents are in place. So the odds of rejection are less, at least in my opinion. I usually do with a travel agent. He can give you flight reservation tickets as well as hotel reservations. They charge their fees but it's usually cheaper...
