Hello everyone!!

I am new to this forum, but have been looking at immigration options for a while now (to Canada ofcourse)

I went to Premiers today, and the lady spoke very well and convincingly. Thankfully though, I checked the reviews and they seemed to be pretty horrible...

therefore, I have come to you all for some serious advice to apply for the 4th May 2013 FSW.

I have graduated from the American University of Sharjah (BSC Business Admin - major marketing) and by May will have 23 months full time work experience in Customer Service/Relationship for humanitarian relief shipments, as well as 6 months part time experience in Environment, health & safety (during my studies).

The lady at Premiers told me that the May opening does not have any job restrictions, as was tweeted by Kenny today; and includes NOC 0 A and B, so my occupation (Sales/Marketing) falls into that..and she also told me that CIC is now working to get fast track immigration done within 12 months..
anyone who can confirm this? especially the "no job restrictions" - and she told me that the quota is 55,000 applicants...

She seemed very positive about the whole thing after looking at my credentials..and was telling me to start almost immediately..

I have a few questions:

1) Where can I give my university degree for the check/assessment they have to do - she said AUS is well-accredited so should be very easy but takes a month or 2 to get the approvals etc.

2) I have a copy of my birth certificate in Hindi, but no original - can I get a proper notarized translation into english - anyone knows who can do a legal translation (for Indian BC) which is accepted by Canada immigration?

3) Where do I send my documents, and what do I really do on May 4th?
Documents include:
IELTS results (to be done soon inshaAllah)
Work experience references etc
Birth certificate translated legal copy
Proof of funds
Educational certificates which should have been approved in advance
...anything else? Am not married, so do I need to provide Singleness certificate or any of that?

4) If I get married in the next 8-10 months, will it be easy to add my spouse to my application? Or is it better to wait until I get a PR (which might be really long I think)

5) I seem to have 71-73 points (depending on if my work experience can count as 2-3 years or less), so should I still do a french test? I can speak french pretty well..

6) Police clearance - how do we get it and from where? Or should I just worry about that much later....


Would appreciate your soonest replies...

thanks-


anybody who can help on above?

thanks

@EFK,

The said 'lady' n her colleagues are v good salespeople! What she was looking at was not your credentials but the potential client and her commission . Once the gullible client takes the bait n PAYS it is NEXT to be convinced! So Beware! They are extra sweet, in fact they r coated with sugar, drop some water on that n it will dissolve away! 8)

First, browse, www.cic.gc.ca and then also go through Our dear friend and guide Capt Qorax's various threads like 'Qorax Indexed' . Most of your doubts will be cleared n whenever u have any write specific questions in short one by one n those will be answered by fellow forum members. This way u will have saved some valuable 11k which can be better used for your kids! :D

Best Wishes,

Bestpal

Dear all, and especially Captain, Biju bhai, and Sattar bhai,

By the grace of god, I and my family have landed in Canada a few days ago.

The experience has been wonderful. I arrived in Vancouver, BC airport at around 7pm. It wasnt so busy, and around 7 families in front of us. At first there were two officers welcoming everyone, but after 10 minutes, 3 more officers showed up and cleared the rush in no time. The questions were pretty much simple, but the sad thing is that I created two lists. One list which I brought with myself including jewellery and the jewellery pictures. And the other list goods to follow. they stamped the goods to follow list, and told me they dont need any jewellery images nor any electronics details which we have brought with us. So people who are making the lists, please dont spend so much time like me on making these lists. You can bring it with you, you never know which officer might request, but just dont be so detailed.

After the immigration and giving my brothers address in Vancouver, I went to the baggage area to collect my luggage with the help of a porter and then outside. Very simple.

The main thing here, is the feeling of landing in your new country can only be felt once you land here. The people are so welcoming here. Although the outside life is very slow and its rainy, but each city has its pros and cons. I am staying with my brother here, and the apartments and townhomes are very expensive in Surrey area or White rock area. I dont have a car yet, since my brother takes me alond everywhere.

Again, thank you all who have supported me all along. If I can be of any assistance to anyone arriving in Vancouver, please let me know.

Best

Just wondering - regarding police clearance certificates..

i have live in UAE all my life, but hold an Indian passport (originally, but never lived in India)...

so do I have to provide police clearance or such documentation from India as well?

and when they say national ID - does the Emirates ID work, or some kind of Indian idea (I think PAN card type)??


And what about Pakistan? I have others applying in the same situation but with Pakistani passports.. is it the same?

thanks.
