Hello everyone,

I'd like to ask if anyone ever had a personal interview request before even having Medicals?
If you did, please let me know what are the probable questions and how it went.

I will be having mine in the next month in Abu Dhabi and was wondering if anyone was asked the same.
Thanks.

Following are the steps:

Check you eligibility, you should have 67 points :

http://www.cic.gc.ca/ctc-vac/ee-start.asp

If you are eligible, check your CRS score :

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/crs-tool.asp

You will get a code, once u are eligible and use this code to create your gc key on the link :

Then, create your work profile on the job bank :

Hello,

My sister is planning to apply for immigration to Canada. Under the FSW program she has 73 points, however under the Express Entry program she only gets 441 CRS points. She would like to apply for the FSW program, but we can't seem to find much details about how to apply under the FSW program. Can she not apply under FSW only?

Also, the FSW program awards 5 points if you have a sibling in Canada, which is great. I don't think the Express Entry program awards any points for this. Correct?

My sister's IELTS score is CLB 9 or more, so there isn't much she can do to improve her CRS score with the language. What are some options for her to increase her CRS score?

Thanks.

Dear All,

I am from dubai, my current CSR score is 404 (it was 395 i appeared in Ietls and increased it to 404. L8.5, R8,W6.5,S8 OVERALL:8).

Approached local immigration consultants they told me that i will get an ITA from Ontario immediately, its been 2 weeks no request yet. What do you guys suggest i should do.

I am thinking to appear in IELTS again and increase my score. If i would have got 7 in writing my CSR would have been 461.

Looking forward for your advise guys.

Thanks
Mo.

I have a few questions that you guys might be able to answer ...

1. How do you transfer money across so that you lose the least in processing fee, exchange rates, bank charges, etc. ? assuming you already have a CAD account in Canada.

2. What is the cheapest airline to fly to TO and when is the best time to do so?

TIA :-*

Hi Zakkhan

There is really no other way to get money into Canada other than the official route unless you bring it in cash. If you do bring it in cash you can bring in upto CAD 10K per person ( if memory serves me right) without declaring it but anything more than that amount needs to be declared. My suggestions for bringing in large sums of money is always have a paper trail ( Bank statements showing the money was in your account for sometime) to validate source of money or they will give you a hard time.
In terms of flights check out swiss, klm/air france etc. for options with hopping flights. you will get a great deal if you travel before peak summer. You might get one on Ek or Ettihad as well. You can also check options via US if you have a valid US visa as these options will be cheaper.

Hope this helps and all the best

Hi,

I sent my fingerprint forms to a friend in Dubai on January 11th, 2016 for getting police conduct certificate. The envelope was sent via regular mail. It's been one and half months and the application hasn't reached him yet. Is there anyway I can track the package ?. Can someone help me please?.

Thanks.
