Ok, so this is the thread where someone actually contacted abu dhabi in regards to the ticket issue. I personally bought my ticket and sent it along with my passport. Thought it gives an excuse so they dont delay returning my pp and copr :D well its mentioned in the ppr, so their fault not mine lol
But how do you know when to buy the ticket for? What is the validity of the visa? etc

My medical still has validity till may next year and my passport has validity for years to come, plus i booked my ticket end of september, giving them a bit over a month which is the average processing time to issue copr. In the ppr they said to allow at least 20 days between passport submission and iternerary, which i did.
Finally, like i said, ppr clearly asks me to submit my ticket, so who's fault is it. I am just doing what they asked me to do. I wont be happy if they delayed me beyond my ticket date, wont be fair.

I am honestly not buying this (mistake) thing. PPR they sent me not only mentions that i should buy the ticket, but also tells me i can only arrive to canada mon-thu, 8am-10pm, and to avoid public holidays, and then they put for me a whole table of public holidays in canada to avoid arriving on those dates. All of that limited my flight options, I only had one airline left to pick that is close to my budget and their terms.

You can land in airports 24/7 as far as I know. I think those restrictions apply to flag poling.

Question ..

In a nut shell, we don't need to purchase tickets, it's only passports and pictures to be sent to Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi?

How long it takes to receive our stamped passports? In the email, it says 10 working days, is it really 10 working days or more as I have travel plans by the end of September.

I haven't received any message in mycic account. So shall I just print the PPR email and send it along with my passport and pictures?


Awaiting your earliest replies.

How long does a PPR visa last?
I have to buy a ticket and want to give myself ample time to sort out a few things and go in January. It's going to be very difficult to go in holiday season due to closed businesses and cold weather.

If you do not require a visa to enter Canada:

· Please submit one photocopy of the photo page and any pages containing amendments of the passport for you and one for each accompanying family member.

Important information after you arrive in Canada:

Permanent residents (PRs) of Canada must carry and present a valid PR card or permanent resident travel document (PRTD) when boarding a flight to Canada, or travelling to Canada on any other commercial carrier. If you do not have a PR card, you need to apply for a PRTD, or you may not be able to board your flight, train, bus or boat to Canada.

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/travel-document/index.asp

It is your responsibility to ensure that your PR card is still valid when you return from travel outside Canada, and to apply for a new PR card when your current card expires. If your PR card expires, it does not mean you have lost permanent resident status.



Yours sincerely,





Immigration Section

Embassy of Canada

Respected Members...PLS HELP

I am a Canadian immigration applicant, along with my wife and baby son. In response to the express entry application we had submitted on April 3rd, we had received our 1st passport request mail dated July 14th asking us to submit our passports through VFS. At that point of time my newly born son was not added as dependent in our application. As it was a case of family expansion we went forward with submitting 3 of our passports including my son's passport along with his required documents such as medical, birth certificate, application fee receipt etc on July 17th at VFS Bangalore.

After 3 months my son was added as a dependent and we were asked to upload the scanned copies of my son's passport and other documents which we did as instructed. Oct 26th we received another Passport request mail asking to submit our passports which is in fact already submitted through VFS Bangalore office and is being shown as being processed at New Delhi High Commission.

I contacted VFS and was told to enquire with New Delhi High Commission regarding our case which i did. Few days back I received a mail from Delhi saying ours is a file number which refers to a case at the Consulate General of Canada in Bangalore and was instructed to raise CSE to Bangalore, which i did..

The very next day I received mail from Bangalore office saying our case number is actually relating to NDVO and they asked me to raise CSE to NDVO which i did day before yesterday and I haven't heard from them till now..

What do i do members?? Can anyone give suggestions...Do i have to go to Bangalore VFS just to submit the 2nd PPR mail as passports are already submitted 3 months back...

PLS HELP

Thanks

Hi All,
I have encountered a very strange situation. I submitted my application on 5th Sep and got my AOR. On the 16th i got a notification that i had cleared my medical. I have been regularly checking my CIC account and emails every since with no further update apart from the regular "In progress". A few days ago i decided to write to CIC and was shocked with their email that my Application was approved and ready for visa email sent on 22nd Sep. I have no such email in any folders.

I have requested them to re-issue the mail, Do you feel they will re-issue ? does somebody have similar experiences, please share ?
