I receive it from LVO through normal post.

No. I did not get any waiting letter as such. May I know how did you receive it? Is it from LVO? Did you get by email or snail mail?

Anyhow, I am not applying PCC now, once I receive MR in y hand, I will proceed further.

Hi all

Does anyone know where can I get Legal 8.5" x 14" paper to print the B4 form in Dubai ?
Also if someone has done this recently is it necessary to print on this size or can I print it on regular A4 paper in 2 parts ?

Please reply urgently as we are travelling on Thu and this is the last piece of the puzzle

Thanx
er2d2g
@er2d2g,
You can very well go and print in the std A4 size paper which is slightly different (8.3" x 11.7") and it is perfect for the current purpose, and CHC suggests this for uniformity in their filing later on, I guess.

Whereas the 'legal' size as it is called is used for all legal/judicial purpose (just for convenience sake for filing instead of everyone providing their own sized paper).

Don't worry and proceed as above. Do keep in touch and write abt your landing and post landing experiences.

Best of Luck!

@coolguy2010,

qorax said:
Hi,

I've written to u about it many times.

1. All bank a/cs [chequing] will 'charge' u some monthly maint. fees. Nothing is free here [ditto in Dubai].

2. Savings a/cs r usually free, but u need a chequing a/c for issuing chqs [eg. for tenancy contracts]. Ppl who have savings a/c have one chequing a/c also.

3. Most banks have some sort of chequing a/c which can be free if u maintain certain amount of min. balance [usually $5000] always. If ur min. bal. goes down - u'll be charged a 'penalty' [usually heavy, around $30-50] everytime.

4. A good idea is to open the Scotiabank Startright program. This a/c comes to 'newcomers' FREE for 1-yr [after a yr u will be charged for everything/all transactions]. I've a separate thread on Scotiabank, pls read that.

Dear Qorax,

Thank u so much for ur inputs. Which kind of credit card is preferred economically, one where I wouldn't have to be charged any annual fees, or any extra fees, just for everyday usage?

Most banks will offer u the basic Cr. Card, which have no annual maint. fees. However, they carry higher interest rates for the bal carried forward. But as long as u keep it cleared [by paying ur consumption on a day-to-day basis] u'd remain FREE of all costs.

We all do so... I clear-off my Cr. Card balances every week... thus, my Cr. Card remains 'topped-up' always -- and I don't incur any unnecessary charges.

Dear Qorax,

Please advice..

My medical recd line appeared on ECAS on 24 May now today I can see the status DECISION MADE and inside it says.. Decision has been made on your application. The Office will contact you concerning this decision...

Does that mean I can get the PPR anytime now.. how long do i have to wait...

is this the normal practice that status change into DECISION MADE before sending PPR....

Please Reply

Please Reply
It's not normal... "DM" occurs in the e-Cas usually after the pps r stamped. However, I've also noticed [over the forums] that some ppl had likewise as urs and received their PPR shortly. Thus, I hope/believe ur's could be too.

Good luck.
