Any one who went to Niagara for Landing .
Can you guys tell em what is the landing process.
I want to go to Rainbow bridge for Landing.

I have US B1/B2 visa, but my wife don't have US Visa.
Does this mean both of us have to do flagpoling at border?

what are all the documents we need to take with us?
Do we need to take any photos with us?

Hi Bro,

a. You don't need US visa for flag polling as you will not enter the US. So you both can do flag polling.
b. The docs you need is Passport, Canadian Permit(s), Immigrant Visa (on your passport), keep SIN no handy (just in-case but not needed) and coPR letter which will have your file number and conformation of PR.
c. No photos needed

D. COngrats and welcome to CANADA. ;D

Are you sure of these answers, and that they were true until recently? This situation is very similar to mine and I, too, want to make sure that my family and i can do flagpoling with no US visas.

For adding to others' timelines, mine is as follows:
PPR 7 Dec
PP sent 8 Dec
PP delivered 9 Dec (estimate!)
Waiting, will keep you posted when i get it back.

Best of luck to all.

Yes I am sure about this. I did flag polling with my friends when I needed my work visa. None of us at that point had US visa.
Flagpoling is a term that describes the process of exiting Canada, being refused entry to the USA, and re-entering Canada to validate your new immigration status in Canada.

Search on google you can find plenty of information about it.

Moral : "Personal experience, you dont need US visa for flagpoling"

CHEERRRSSS!!!

Great! congratulations

If you don't mind, can you tell me when the passport actually reached CPC? I can see you sent it on 9th. Just trying to get a understanding of how many bsiness days it took for them to process this.
