Hi,

We currently applying for trv for my husband, but due to border closing its taking time to process the application. I already received my student permit, is it possible to submit an open work permit while trv application is on going? Or if we received his trv, can we immediately submit owp application if he is still outside Canada? We are planning to go together by first week of February. Please advise guys. Thank you.

Yes. You will need to show that you have enough funds in your own bank account. At least 20,000 CAD. As for your sponsors, it's better that you show their statement of accounts too.

Hi,

It's always better if you can show that proof of funds are coming from you. It strengthens your financial profile. If not entirely possible, stick to people within your immediate family circle as your sponsor.

Hello,

What does this mean?

"This is in reference to your application for temporary residence. A decision has been made on
your application. We require your passport to finalize processing your application."

Can I send it via courier? or does it have to be in-person?

Congrats bro. It means that your application was approved. Login to your GCKey profile check the final decision on your profile. Sometimes, when you get PPR, it turns to "Approved". Probably, you should wait for a payment link for a two-way courier.

Also, please share your timeline. We are still get nothing and it would be really helpful.

Ok. Do you know from which office did you get PPR letter? Manila or Ottawa? The office name may be written in the PPR letter.

Together with the passport request letter was a confirmation letter regarding my biometrics validity and the address placed there was Ottawa. So it must be from Ottawa.

Hello,

To those who had previously received a passport request letter, will there be a follow-up email of instructions on how to submit your passport?
