Did you received you pr card ye
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 :p

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 :

Both passports
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.

Here is our time line:

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
d you
