Hi there - my husands PR interview is next week. the letter asks that we pay the Right of PRFee, if we have not done so already. Is this fee included in the original payment of citizen and immigration fees?

I do have a receipt that i paid $1125, but it is not itemized, and the current fee is $1040... Was there tax on there? I am pretty sure i paid but really would like to be sure.

Edited to add: i must have also paid an $85$ biometrics fee. That's the only way i can explain the difference.

Landed in Calgary yesterday :):D was quite simple, she just asked my husband and I to confirm our address, if we had ever been bankrupt or been charged with a crime. She punched holes in my work permit and visitor record and gave them back as momentos. She said it'll take 10 days for my PR card to come. Can't believe it's all done!

Hi,

Is it true that once you apply as an inland application, you cannot leave Canada until your application is finalized ?

My wife is visiting me from the USA and intends to travel to USA to see her family. She is already been here for 4+ months. I was planning to put in an application for her next week but I heard that once you submit and inland application, you cannot leave Canada.

If that is true, I might have to apply for her as an outland.

Kindly advise which stream would be better for our case, outland or inland (I was hoping she would get medical insurance while inland)

Thanks

What the government expect is if you submit your application inland, your wife is supposed to stay inCanada while application is process, I've heard some people who have done short trips and they return back (2 weeks), if your wife meet all requirements and eligibility to enter back, there should not be a problem.

However, the other option will be applying outland and she still can visit you back while the application is in process; again if she meets eligibility to enter back to Canada. People say this process is a little bit faster that doing this inland.

In my experience, my wife has been through similar situation, she came from USA, we decided she stay, I included into my private benefits insurance, we also applied for Open Work Permit (if you do this make sure you pay 2 different fees, in total $100 + $155 = $255) and she has staid with me here in Canada with no issues, after 6 month now she is in "Back Ground Check" status, and currently average inLand applicants is 6-7 months; which vary from case to case.

Hope this could help take the better decision on your case.
Good Luck!

How can you do that?
Is there a way to contact IRCC changing your interview? I thought you don't have control over that
On the landing letter from your local office there's an email address, so I emailed them and explained, giving them my husband's work name and location for them to check if need be, and they gave us a week earlier. Calgary seems to be pretty laid back, and no as busy as other offices
