Congratulations! I’m really happy for you!!Hello Everyone,
I just wanted to thank everyone who helped us through our PR process or as I like to call it PR Nightmare. LOL
All your feedback, positive vibes, and conversions helped us through some rough times. I am so happy that my spouse is now PR holder and years to come will become a Canadian Citizen.
Had our landing interview today it was super easy and the officer was very nice, she kept making jokes and was very funny and pleasant.
They asked us for :
Driver license ( to show same address)
Confirmed our home address so they can send PR card.
PR card pictures
Landing interview letter
She asked my spouse these following questions:
Are you working?
When was the last time you entered Canada?
Have you been convicted of crime in Canada or anywhere in the world?
And that was it. She said congratulations. We than walked over to the Service Canada in the same building and updated our SIN number to reflect as a PR holder SIN.

PR Card: Waiting
For those who followed our story it was pretty crazy. CBSA discovered my spouse was out of status and overstayed in Canada. And than the exclusion order and CBSA seized documents it has been a crazy few months. CBSA didn't make it easy for us. However because we submitted PRRA and than the PRRA officer called our immigration officer we got approved in principle within 3 months But with gods grace we where able to get through the process.
Again thank you to everyone who reached out to us!! <3
As of the landing interview last week, I became a Permanent Resident of Canada! It was a long journey and I still can’t believe it just came true.
The officer (and actually every single staff I met at the office) was very friendly, welcoming and kind. I was able to have the interview in a relaxed mood (it took only 5 min to complete). In addition, I was really touched when three staff and officers came to us to say “Congratulations!!”
Ever since I became sixteen, my dream had been to live happily and honestly in the country where sexual minorities can live safely with dignity. Canada is definitely where I can be free, happy and married. I can’t be happier that now I can live here permanently with the love of my life, without worrying about visa expiration and restrictions.
For those who have replied to my questions and concerns, I’d love to appreciate your kindness and helpfulness!
For those who are waiting for the application to be finalized- I wish you nothing but the very best!
Congrats!!!!!!!!!!! This is awesome news!Going into Vancouver for landing this late afternoon. I have all of my requested documents ready. This seems surreal! I am still nervous for no reason! I am traveling from Vancouver Island so hope the travel goes smooth. I will update when I am finished up.
You'll be fine! It's mostly a formality!Thanks!
I keep checking that I have my things in order making sure i did not forget anything. Lol its crazy. But i keep seeing it is a super easy appointment so I am trying to calm down!
