    Flagpoling to validate COPR during COVID-19

    In the words of the 2 CBSA agents I've spoken w/, when I asked them, they both replied with "yes" but not encourage. I am simply sharing my own experience, as I know for some others it might be a last resort.

    Don't quote me on this but I believe it is acceptable. Check the website for unacceptable situations to see whether those apply to your situation.

    COPR Post March 18

    Aight folks just spoke with the CBSA on phone, here is the result. When they reach the immigration officer at the airport, do present the document. Even if the officers refuse to validate their COPRs and still admit them into Canada, they can always go flagpoling at the border via private vehicle.

    COPR Post March 18

    Because from what I've heard, some of those individuals are admitted into Canada but without their COPRs validated. The officers refuse to process their COPR because the written authorization specifies that they are only coming in to reunite with their family.

    What about those with copr issued after March 18th but that are exempt from travel restrictions as they’are reuniting with family members (with written authorization)? Would they be able to land as PR?

    Theoretically, no, because once your request is approved, they will have your name recorded on a global travelling system. However, I would definitely recommand you print it out, as it would be easier for you to show it to the airline.

    Getting drivers license in Canada

    The ideal situation would be: bring your G1 (equivalent to L in BC) and your indian driving experience proof to BC, convert your G1 into a L, and apply for a road test in BC, though I am not sure if you still have your proof of Indian driving experience with you.

    Entry in Canada

    Are your parents PRs or COPR holders? If they are landed PRs, of course they can travel to Canada. If they are COPR holders or have any sort of Canadian Visa, I am sure they can board the flight if they could provide: 1. proof of relationship (e.g. your birth certificate) 2. proof of your PR...
