I have to wait 15 more days to get my new GCMS notes..... By the way, I hope you are paying your RPRF fees with a credit card, like Virus bhai did. It is quick and easy.
I am not sure about that. Only option they mentioned is Bank draft. I will communicate with VIRUS regarding this issue.
Main challenge is to get PCC from my home district.
SGVO have given only 30 days.

If they explicitly mentioned a bank draft being the option, then it would be unwise to think about a credit card payment, I think. But, I think you could just send a CSE in the mean-time just to see if they would be happy with the credit card option. Who knows, perhaps this would be your last CSE before you passport gets stamped.

You will obtain PCC the same way as you did when you submitted your application. And, why are you thinking about getting it from your home district? My home district is far from Dhaka. I got my PCC in Dhaka. Of course, my current address on my passport shows the address in Dhaka.

Hello afaruq brother, I heard people advising others not to go to the main branch of SCB on Gulshan-1, but to go to the one on Gulshan-2.

Re: Landing Experience

Dhaka2014 said:
Hi Friends..
Let me share my experience with you as it might help the friends who haven't landed yet.

LANDING: DAY 1

Actually we have decided to do a 'short landing' in Toronto and then permanent move location will be decided based on job hunting progress by end of 2015 Inshallah.

We landed in Toronto (YYZ) terminal 1. The whole process at Toronto airport took almost 90mins (from aircraft door to airport exit gate). The word 'Welcome to Canada' was heard more than 15 times in between :)

1st step: Passport Control counters, there was a short queue in the visitors queue (BTW, we should go to visitors queue not residents queue, because at this point, we are not residents yet), it took around 10 mins max. Officer asked for the purpose of our visit (which is immigration), took our passports, stamped on the immigration visa and customs declaration, asked how much fund we are carrying (we declared over 10K CAD), then asked to go to new immigrants office just on the right side of passport control counters.

2nd Step: New Immigrants Counters: The officer took our passports, COPR, asked few questions (like do we have any other dependents, how much fund we are bringing for settlement [he didn't ask to show it], etc). And asked for our Canadian address (I recommend that you print the address in a paper and give it to them instead of dictating it). Then asked us to sit in the lobby until he finishes his work). This took around 20mins.

Note: The COPR had one photo attached and stamped from visa office and another photo clipped, I added another recent photo to the clipped one, the officer asked which photo is more recent, so I showed it to him, he returned all the other photos. So, it is acceptable that you clip a new photo other than the COPR photo....

3rd Step: Newcomers Welcome counter; They gave us some brochures and papers titled Welcome to Canada, health insurance forms, and some child tax return docs and some other papers.

4th Step: SIN numbers (ServiceCanada Counter, Terminal 1 at YYZ): We landed during working hours. Around 1:30pm on Monday. Officer asked questions like fathers name, mothers name, correct spelling, etc.. Then printed SIN numbers on A4 paper. There are no longer SIN cards. This process took around 15mins.
Note: If you land outside working hours, SIN counters at the airport will be closed, you will get your SIN number from any ServiceCanada office. It takes 5-10mins max.

5th Step: Baggage Carousal: Our bags were already in the carousal, we just collected them.

6th Step: Customs, as we entered the customs queue, the officer noted that we filled YES in 'Are you carrying funds over 10K CAD' so immediately she directed us to customs office next door, we entered there, the officer took the good to follow list (I prepared B4+B4A+Picture of all gold that we will bring later). The officer was really happy to see our organized preparation, stamped all the 3 pages (B4+B4A+Gold pic) and asked me to wait a bit. He entered the total value in his system and gave me an official printed form for tax-free import. This process took another 15mins.

This was the last step in the airport. Then we headed out of the terminal to rental car offices, I have booked a car earlier, so we picked that car and headed to a furnished apartment in Mississauga (booked earlier from booking.com).

Another step we did on the same day, is we opened a bank account in TD Trust Canada (booked an appointment earlier by online chat with TD Bank). The brunch was in the next building of our apartment and open until 8pm. So we opened 2 separate accounts (for myself and my wife), got debit card instantly. Applied for credit card, usually it takes 7-10 days delivered to your mailing address, but I requested a rush delivery to the same branch, I got up the cards from the branch exactly after 4 days.

MY RECOMMENDATIONS

I recommend that you prepare the following ahead of time, they will be very happy if you do your homework, as it will make their life much easier. Many officers were very happy and said 'You guys are very organized and prepared everything.. Thank you'.

1) Canadian address printed in a small paper
2) Print form B4 and B4A. Write the total value in the last row. ONLY FOR THE GOODS TO FOLLOW.
3) If you are bringing gold or other jewelry later, print a colored picture of that. ONLY THE GOLD YOU WILL BRING LATER.

For the accompanying goods and gold, the officer said we don't need it. But if you want to make a list, make sure that you make a separate list and don't combine it with good to follow list.

That was DAY 1.

Please let me know if you have any question. I will be glad to help.


Thank you very much for sharing !!!

Excellent! Thank you so much for shearing your real experiences.
I have some queries regrading arrangement of accommodation;
Have you booked hotel or appratment at Mississauga? Can I do the same from outside of Canada? How about the price? Can I rent for a short while, I.e for a week?
Much appreciate if you could reply somemore details on it.

Hi.. You are welcome.
I booked a furnished apartment at Mississauga (just next to square one mall if you know that place). I booked it from booking.com (it is there is airbnb.com as well). Yes, you can book it online from anywhere, you just need a credit card. We booked it for 8 nights and it was something like $740 including tax.
This is the one we booked.

I am seeing only option is DD for both SGD and CAD.
There is no doubt on your Landing fee payment procedure from your email.
It seems SGVO already prepared this email more than two months ago but forgot to send you... :eek: :eek: :eek:
Recently CIC has changed the payment procedure for all Bangladeshi applicant for Right of Permanent Residence Fee.

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/fees/result.asp?countrySelect=BD&lob=rprf

I assume however we can pay RPRF through online and there is no any confusion from CIC website (if anyone wants to pay) but it is more safe for BD applicant to pay through Bank Draft though it is like little hassle.

Wish your process will go smoothly in soonest time.

Best of luck. :) :)

You are welcome.
I have given my relative's Canadian address to the immigration officer. After 5 days, I saw the address reflected in my ECAS.
The furnished apartment was only for 8 days, as I mentioned earlier, I went for 'short landing'. Will move permanently later on InshaAllah.
