@PRANIT01 @ImpatientAlligator @wonderbly
Is it necessary to declare goods accompanying list at the airport?
Bro ,I can't answer that question even stirredo asked me the same they did some crazy,they never asked me for anything and when I said I have goods to follow they said as it is from us that don't care.
But I was okay either way I have only 52 books which cost max 5200$ 5% gst 260$ so I didn't care much.

Hi people,
We are PR, and My spouse is from non IT background and wants to do data analytics course.
Needed wise advice on where to do the course in India or in Canada??
If I am doing that course I will do it from a university in canada and not a college but a university.
Honestly your experience matters the most here followed by degrees.If it is a degree usually especially if she is changing the field they mostly won't accept indian credentials and more over she will get a chance to network and employers are familiar with the university.
But I won't recommend a college, not to hurt anyone's feelings but the quality of education offered their and the students (majority) are garbage which I meant they don't have even basic skills to do the job,they are nice people but unfortunately they are not employable with their coursework and the current level of knowledge.

Did you tell the customs checkpoint that you have good to declare? I've heard of and also saw them just whizzing people by without checking the immigration slip properly.

My parents will be sending some of my stuff that I could not fit into my luggage, it's not valuable stuff though just some sketchbooks, books, colours etc. Do I need to declare these as well?
Declare everything - there is no harm in doing so. You don't have to be too specific - just saying something like 'notebook - 10 units' along with a value should be enough.

Else, you may have to pay taxes/duties later.

Hey everyone. I received the passport request on June 24! You can find the details on my signature.

Quick question: In the request letter, I am asked to provide my height and eye color along with my passport and two photos. I entered my eye color as blue in the eAPR forms but most people says it is actually green. My eyes go from green to blue sometimes and when I ask people I get different answers. I asked to the doctor during the medical assessment on Dec 2020 and she said she thinks it is blue so I entered blue on the eAPR forms. Statistically more people say it is green. Do you think I should simply go with the blue again on the Appendix B - Height and Eye Colour Chart or change to green ? I know it sounds like a silly question but it confuses me a lot :D
Your eyes are blue. Don't complicate things for no reason.

Yes ,if I am you I will definitely go to university.unis in us and Canada are tough they will make you spit nails,take appropriate foundation course and prerequisite and email the unis admissions office and you should have good sop.
Yes you need a transit visa,air canada is a great option, other airline are bit messed up.
I am not sure about the transit visa procedure.

I will tell you one thing ,I have cussed them a lot of times ,but I can guarentee you 1 thing Canada's public offices are a million times better than USA.They dont give a damn even if you are an american forget about immigrants.
If you go to exchange a license 1 day is lost in US in Canada I took 15 min.
IRCC is garbage nodebate on that but atleast in Alberta I can say their systems are really efficient

I respectfully disagree, DMV's are not what they used to be. I have been a DMV in Massachusetts and a DMV in Florida, they are much more efficient and streamlined. Yes you need to wait at least an hour or maybe less but this is huge improvement.
