Can anyone please reply? Need help urgently.Hi All,
For POF, can I show a letter from bank with current funds and its equivalent CAD amount along with bank statements?
Also I read in some post that FD's are not acceptable? Is it correct?
I am planning to take 5000 CAD and rest in bank statements?(my req is 23k CAD for family of 4) Will it be ok? Will be on a short visit to just complete my landing formalities.
Can anyone please reply? Need help urgently.
Much appreciated. Thank you!Yes you can take the bank letter. Just ask the bank to amend the language and mention that you have so much amount as-"proof of transferable funds in convertible currency " of the total amount that you have.
Would advise to take more than 5000CAD as cash and the remaining as a POF( Proof of funds) on bank letter head stamped and dated by the latest date.
Happy travelling. Don't worry you will do fine.
Couldn't you guys make a short landing (stay in Canada for a short period of time and return to the US) without waiting for the PR card to arrive? When the baby got her US passport, if you guys want to return to Canada for settlement, you guys can drive to the Canadian border with your COPR + passport without the PR card.Our last day to land is Feb 17 on which our medicals expire. I'm planning to land in October without my wife, stay a couple of days to start our PR and return to the US. The problem is, we're expecting a baby due in mid-January. In the US, it takes around six weeks to get a passport to a newborn so I don't think we'll be able to complete all the documents and get his/her passport before Feb 17.
1. I read in other threads that CIC may give an extension up to 3 months to complete the documents for a newborn but I couldn't find an information in the CIC's website. Does anyone know where I can get some official info regarding this issue?
2. If my wife comes with me to Canada in October and stays there until our PR comes which takes around 45 days, can she apply for a visa to re-enter the US from Canada? Her US visa will expire by that time.
3. How long does it take to get our health insurance card after getting our PR?
Bring some proof that you have that amount secured. Some people I know only carried 1000 CAD in cash.Salut à tous, svp je suis nouveau sur le forum et je voulais savoir si je n'ai pas l'argent et la somme entière déclarer dans le formulaire d'autonomie financière c'est quoi le risque ? Merci
It is not advisable to bring cash as proof of funds. Generally speaking, cash and cashiers checks are not considered proof of funds because IRCC cannot verify (without additional information) the source of those funds. Maybe someone lent you the cash or you are smuggling it on behalf of someone else. For example, millions of $ are seized every year at YVR airport by CBSA: http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/british-columbia/undeclared-cash-vancouver-airport-1.3755414Can anyone please reply?

That is not always the position as I landed with my family of five and had my POF in cash. I had no issues at all at the airport. Nobody says you can't land with cash, what you are required to do is declare it and be prepared to explain/evidence the source if required. The immigration agency knows not everybody who lands with cash is smuggling funds and everyday people are coming in with cash which they declare in keeping with the law. I work in Ainti Money Laundering here so I know how the system works in this regards. If you come from a high risk jurisdiction, just be prepared to explain the source of the funds, simple.It is not advisable to bring cash as proof of funds.

IRCC asks for bank statements or a letter from your bank specifically to verify the source of the funds and not just whether you have the funds.
I will replied despite your user name. You can apply both elsewhere if you prefer.Question --- (SINP) I became resident in Nov 2016 , I completed my landing process at Toronto in Jan 2017 and came back to US, Now I am planning to visit again. Would I be able to apply for DL anywhere in Canada ? Or only in SK ?? Would I be able to get SIN anywhere in Canada or only in SK ?
