I have sent my passport for stamping.Once I receive my passport back,I'm planning to land in toronto.

1)can somebody tell me what is the mode in which I should take the proof of
funds while landing in canada by air? (for 2 ppl i guess it's around 10k / 11k
US$).I read in some forum where it said that taking the money in 2 halfs(5k
5k) is better,since anything above 10k US$ is not allowed.

So can somebody clear me on this?

2)Also I'm planning to come back to US after landing.I have another
question.....does the 5 year PR timeline start when I land canada?

Is there a time line within which one should land in canada after receiving
the passport with stamping?Should the landing be dome before the medicals
expire?

3) Also if the 5 yr timeline starts from the date of landing,can one postpone it
by 1year(in case landing can be done at anytime irrespective of the
medicals) ?

4) I'm palnning to land by air in toronto.Does all the formalities take place in
the airport?

5) Should I apply for PR card in the airport or in HRDC office?

6) Also since I'm going to return to US after landing,how should I answer the
immigration officer?
Because these days,if on landing anyone said that they would move after
6m / 1yr then it seems that the immigration officer is asking that person to
apply for PR while plannin to move to canada?

So to avoid this delay how should I answer the immigration officer,so that I
will be able to apply for PR card while landing?

7) Apart from SIN card,PR what else should I apply for if I'm going to return
back to US after landing?

8) I will be in toronto for 4 days.can anybody suggest me places to look
around toronto?

Thanks.

As long as you have the correct amount, it doesn't matter how it is taken. Just ensure that you declare that you have over 10K when leaving US and entering Canada. That is unless you want to lose it.

Yes,

Your COPR will be valid for 12 months after the date of your medical or the expiry of your passport, whichever comes first.


3) Also if the 5 yr timeline starts from the date of landing,can one postpone it
by 1year(in case landing can be done at anytime irrespective of the
medicals) ?

No.

4) I'm palnning to land by air in toronto.Does all the formalities take place in

Yes.

5) Should I apply for PR card in the airport or in HRDC office?

It is processed at the Airport, it has nothing to do with HRSDC.

6) Also since I'm going to return to US after landing,how should I answer the

You don't really need a SIN if you are not working.

If I apply for SIN and get my SIN card,will I have to pay tax?

Can I land in vancouver,since I have mentioned toronto in my application?

If I land in vancouver can I apply SIN in vancouver and give my friend's address in toronto for PR card and SIN?

Is it enough if I take bank stmt for the proof of funds?

Thanks.
