For those of us who have done a short landing, would appreciate your help on a matter.

For Jewelry that we would be carrying when we relocate, do we require the valuation + pictures when we do our short landing?

All comments welcome :)
Yes you do as you need to have the pics of the jewelry stamped as a back up to the goods to follow list. The valuation from a jewelry shop is also required. This will avoid any complications when you bring in the Jewelry later
hope this helps

Alhamdulilah-Short landing(Calgary) in April-2015-returned back.All went Well.
Hi guys,

Did a short landing in calgary and just returned back along with family of 4..All went well and smooth.
I was their for a week only.I took only $3000 with me but they never asked me for any funds as such.I resided in my friends house
Always remember to make a list of goods you would like to take to canada and submit it to immigration officer.So next time when you take those goods along with you their is no tax on it.You can also import a car tax free.This is only once for immigrants.
I got the SIN number which is important for Job and to open bank accounts and other requirements.So better get the SIN number which you can get from Immigrant service centers in that city.You can google it depending on your city of landing.only your passport along with CPR will be enough to get SIN number.
Currently Oil and gas job market is down due to prices...but other service industry are doing very well and IT jobs should not be an issue.

Hope this will be helpful.

Thanks

Hello Again,
When I checked my online status, It said " medicals have been Received'
Does it mean they have received my courier with the medical receipts and PCC? and have they accepted the medicals ?
because we had to do a endocrinology for high sugar levels and sent the report. I hope it has been accepted.

Application was received on 28th May 14
Started processing on 10th Nov 14
Medical request and PCC and PR payment email received on 28/3/15
Medicals received by CIC on 23/4/15

and any advise on when we will receive the PPR?

Thanks you.

Hello Seniors,

Please advise - how can one apply for PCC from India being a resident in Dubai? Is it better to get it from India in person or online from the respective state or through BLS services/Indian consulate in Dubai? Any similar experiences?

Thanks in advance..

Hello There,

It is easier and faster to get it done from BLS here than going through all the hassles in India.
BLS will issue PCC from India against UAE PCC hence you will to first get UAE clearance and take
the originals with you and normal Indian passport size photographs with white background and fill
Up the forms and that's it.

It takes 5 to 6 working days to get it.

Hope this helps.

God bless !!!!

Can someone please advise if there is form for declaring networth (assets liabilities) etc?

Or if there is no form and I print my network on a piece of paper, would canadian immigration/customs sign and stamp it if I request them?

My tax accountant is suggesting that I should get it stamped by them on my next visit. I landed last year and returned after 1 month. I am moving to Canada next month permanently and my tax accountant asked me to get this done, although he is not sure how its done.

Any advice?

Settlement funds would be mainly required once you are landing in Canada. Please see the CIC Document Checklist and pls see the following link:

Has any one got any update from Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi?
One of my friend who has applied under Quebec investor program was asked to submit
his passports and he submitted on 11/04 and after 9 days he got some wrong passports
of another Philippino guys so he returned it back.

Plus at the time of submitting his passports to Embassy he was supposed to fill one form
and give, which was also given while submitting his passports.

So when he enquired to Embassy about wrong passports then they came back that his
passports were still in Embassy and this form is missing so he sent as scan by email
which was asked by Embassy but till date didn't get his passports at all.

This is how things are progressing. Have patience........................

All the best

Hi,

I did my medical from Dubai London Speciality Hospital with Dr. Iwona.

They do your x-ray, blood test, eye sight test. urine test, blood pressure check and in the last Dr. examine you like your chest for any whizzing, your eyes and ears genera examination.

If you have any medical history please take it with you and if you are on some medication take the prescription with you as well.

Regards
Thank you greatnewton for sharing your experience. Much appreciated!
