Hi guys,

i am planning to do my landing soon but i have a question:

On some forums i read that on the us side you have to go to their office so they can take fingerprints and a picture to give refusal letter and some say that they will give it right away and ask you to return to Canada.

Anyone that done the landing can explain to me which of these two scenarios i will face ?

Can you please elaborate on how you mail the passport to CPP-O? did you include a prepaid Xpresspost return envelope?

I didn't have to post off my passport because I'm from a visa exempt country. I only had to email them a scanned copy of my ID page.

YOU NEED ONLY YOUR VALID PASSPORT,COPR AND YOUR CURRENT WORK PERMIT AND SOMETIMES CSQ. BUT IT IS ALWAYS BETTER YOU TAKE EVERY SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS LIKE BANK STATEMENTS,UTILITY BILLS,EMPLOYER LETTER ETC.
Thanks Harvie helpful as usual.

I landed today and i want to share my experience since it can be helpful for future permanent residents:

I went to saint-bernard de lacolle border and went straight to the usa borders (there is a U-turn before that can take you back to canada before reaching the usa but do not take it since the canadian officer will need a denial entry paper from the us side).
I told the american officer that i am here for landing, he asked for the car keys and told me to walk to the office. 2 min later an officer came and asked me basic questions (what am i doing here, how long have i been in canada), took a look at my papers and then gave me a deny entry to usa paper, he told me that this won't cause me any problem in the future since it's just an administrative rejection. I went back to my car and went back to canada, i told the officer i am here for landing he then gave me a yellow paper and asked me to park my car and go the immigration office.
In the office the agent took my copr, csq and wp and asked me to have a seat, few minutes later he called me and asked me to write on copr the answer to if i have commited any crime, i wrote no and then he asked me to sign the two copies of copr and write my address on a paper and then asked me to have a seat.
10 min later he called me and told me that i became a permanent resident and should receive my pr card in 6-8 weeks and asked me to go to the other section to finalize my landing.
I went there and the other officer asked me if i have any belongings in my origin country that i want to bring, i answered no, i signed two papers stating that i have nothing to import, and that's it he told me that i am a permanent resident now and can take my car and leave.

Finally this long process is done, thanks everybody for sharing your experience and helping, good luck :) :)
