How is Air India allowing to London without a UK visa we have a COPR
You don't need a visa for UK as long as you remain airside and in transit. You must be in possession of a valid Canada visa and copr.
In case you book your flight through Heathrow on two separate tickets, there is a risk that you will have to collect your baggage at LHR and ré chekin at departures for your second flight. This might require you to pass immigration and hence will require a visa.

Yes, I was planning to open up a new bank account in my name using my brother's address. As d.c.sharma mentioned above, I will try using my brother's bank statement as address proof to try to get the SIN.
Thank you for the reply.. let’s know how SIN process turns out to be once u have applied.

Hi Guys,

I getting a bit paranoid now. My COPR ends on 25th June. I just wanted to know how to know the validity of the medical exam? I stay in the UK and had done my medical in September 2018. Application was submitted in December 2018, and got my PR approved in October 2019. I really hadn't thought about this till now. But after seeing the different posts related to medicals. I just want to know if there's anything I have to do. Any pointers would help. TIA!

Do you know if there is any deadline for applying for the SIN? My plan is to land and only apply for the PR card, and leave SIN and other application (health care for example) till next time, maybe next year. Is it going to be a problem in any way?

No problem at all. You can apply for SIN, OHIP and bank account at later point of time.

Hey, you can apply SIN online, it's a fairly simple process, won't take you more than 15-20mins. So for PR also you must be giving an address, you can give the same for SIN. Just a suggestion.

Hi. Anyone here whose application status changed back to in progress after copr expiry. I haven’t landed yet due to COVID-19. Is this a sign that my application has been reopened for either re medicals or the officer is looking into it as I raised a webform due to my inability to travel? Any thoughts is highly appreciated. Thank you

I am in CANADA and still unable to validate my CoPR due to the current situation. But my wife and son is traveling into Canada on June 2, 2020. Our CoPR & Immigrant Visa expires on July 2, 2020. I hope and pray that, that wouldn't be an issue for the immigration to validate their CoPR prior to mine as their Principal sponsor. I would greatly appreciate if someone could convey to me any brighter idea if that step we're going to do acceptable.
We are in the same scenario. That was my dilema before so i did raise a webform, immig said principal applicant should be landed first before the depedents or the same time with the principal. Now our copr and visa has expired awaiting for extension. Call or raise a webform if they can validate yours thru phone interview, but recently some received an email stating that their copr has been validated

Hello,
The experience I’m sharing today may be helpful for someone and this happens because of Mr. D C Sharma an active member of this blog.

I booked Del London Air India 17th May (Right now I’m in the waiting area of Airport)
London Toronto Air Canada 18th May after layover of 17 hours
COPR valid till 18th May

Air India staff is very supportive and they have tagged my luggage till Toronto.
One just need to fill two forms at the airport. One is in duplicate and one is simple declaration. Just need to fill passenger and flight details.
Verbal information acquired about address in Canada for quarantine purpose.
Have downloaded ArriveCAN app for intimating my arrival in Canada.

Will intimate further....

Thanks

If the layover is 25 hours (if I take the Mumbai-London flight) will it be difficult to convince them? I read on this thread that other people have gone from Mumbai.

The connecting flight for London-Toronto has a single bag allowance. Did you get to check in 1 bag or 2 bags from Delhi?
