Thanks for your prompt reply Canadiantobe. Yes I am a MI1 applicant.


JA77 - Yes I live in Dubai. As original documents are involved you will not receive mail in your mail box. Instead you could ask the post office if they have a packet for you.

Hi Captain, DXB fellows,

Just a couple of quick ones;

1. Is this fine if one of the DD's we have at the time of landing is in my wife's name? As she also has some funds and wants to take in the form of DD so that she can open up a bank account in Canada for herself. Will a DD in her name be accepted as a proof of funds at the time of landing?
2. I will go to Al-Fardan Exchange at Khalid Bin Waleed road in Bur Dubai to get the DD's. Do you know of someone in that branch with whom I can get in contact in order to get some good rate?

Thanks.
Hi,

1. Yes, settlement funds' draft/s could be in the name of any of the accompanying family members. And u could take multiple drafts as well, under many names.

2. Biju knows someone in the Al Qusais br. of Al Fardan; and my manager (at Dxb) sends me wires & drafts from Al Fardan's Deira (near I-continental hotel) br. U may call Biju for the details, and if need be get in touch with my manager as well (I could PM u his cell no.).

Regards,

Qorax

Thanks for the reply. So it means CHC London doesn't send back your original documents using some courier service... instead, they use the normal postal services right?

About checking with the post office, do you mean CHC London will email you first telling you that they have sent you your original documents and then you will check with the post office? I mean, how do you get the hint that there could be something waiting for you in the post office?

By the way, which of your original documents have been returned?

Thanks.

Thank you Qorax. I will get in contact with Biju to know of the details as Qusais branch is closer to my home anyway. And just like you said, if need be I'll get in contact with your manager and request you for his cell number.

By the way, how can I be a part of your Toronto friend's google group and social activities etc? We don't have any friends and relatives in GTA and would like to socialize, network, and make friends. I have never been able to particiate in any of the Dubai meetups, FYI.

In which case, probably u'd neither be able to do so here as well!
Anyway, once u arrive here - get in touch with me and we'd do the needful.
