    Police certificate question

    I will be sending my citizenship application this summer. Here is my travel scenario and I am wondering if anyone thinks I would need a PC? Before obtaining the PR, my country of residence was Canada. I became a PR (flagpolled) in April. A month later in May, I traveled outside of Canada for...

    Police certificate question

    Hey, Based on how the IRCC words the statement about PC, you many need to provide one since your 183+ days in the U.S. are indeed in the last four years and that is not your country of origin. Obtaining a PC from the U.S. is pretty straightforward so I would get one just in case.

    So at the moment you don’t have a CoPR so revoking or anything is out of question. What is likely to happen in your case is you will write them why you need the extension (just tell them your travel plans and when will you be able to send the passport, I’ll write my departure and arrival dates...

    PPR extension for a planned trip

    They do not require a proof for extension. Write to them through the online forum and they will give you an extension. Also know that the deadline of the extension has nothing to do with your expiration of the medical. I would ask for an extension asap, go on the trip, come back December 15 or...

    Automatic Visa Revalidation (AVR) to enter USA

    Question - I last entered the U.S. on a valid F1 visa (still valid) but my status has recently changed to H1-B. I know that my [valid] F1 visa doesn't mean anything now. I am assuming that I can travel to Canada to visit family for a few days? If so, what documents do I need? I do have the valid...

    EE immigration query..experts plz help

    You need to provide more details for people to guide you better. What do you mean by application in progress? At what stage? ITA, AOR, PPR? Engagement has no value but the time the applicant gets married is important when trying to avoid spousal sponsorship.

    (Urgent) help with Post ITA work experience errors

    You are welcome. I got that and I responded to your question. What is your CRS if you don't mind? If you are above the current trend (~460), I would play safe, decline this ITA, and do it all over again. You will definitely get the ITA in the next draw if you have enough points.

    (Urgent) help with Post ITA work experience errors

    I believe the OP is talking about discrepancies in his work dates/hours/title approved for ITA versus the actual. If you have enough overall points and you can easily afford a chance to decline this ITA and get in in the next draw, I will do that (assuming you do all the necessary changes in...

    Mailing PR Card Abroad (Immigration says don't do so!)

    I have had it mailed through UPS and I know of many people who have recently mailed PR cards internationally with no problems. Like others mentioned, it is better to use a courier service rather than regular post.

    Final Decision : India or Canada - 15 days left to decide.

    If you guys are hustlers and willing to work hard, North America is the place to be regardless of living expenses/taxes. You both have a pretty good chance of finding a decent job here within the first few months. I don't know which province/city you want to move to, but I'd advice to absolutely...

    How to do flagpoling at Sarnia- port of entry?

    Since you are flagpoling you will probably not have anything other than documents, like you said. The goods list will be for the stuff that will follow you later as part of your immigration, which in reality means you can make a list of things that you want to bring as a settler (within one year...

    'Permanently' importing car into Canada after PR

    I could not find a source for you and some other posts that I came across talked about exporting procedure with the U.S. before importing the car into Canada. In my case though, I just showed up at the border and was able to do the import process at the CBS office. They did not ask for any...

    How to do flagpoling at Sarnia- port of entry?

    You do not need a U.S. Visitor visa for flagpoling. However, you would have to get to the U.S. border and tell the officer that your flagpoling (turning around and returning to Canada). They would do their paperwork which would say something along the lines of volunteer denial entry (this would...
