Thanks for reminding this. I dont know why do some friends just keep discouraging others. Please dont think about rejection on this stage at allWhy tell just negative opinion , see the comments above all positive unlike your way , pre arrival invitation will be not sent to one could be refused as why they finance service for one will be rejected is that logical too .
As your opinion same as PR card mean nothing as can be revoked any time or can lose citizenship if you commit big crimes .
Try to pick your words as people already face enough stress of the process.
