Can we first define what 'rukhsati' is? :p Is it the so called 'walima' or merely the bride and groom leaving the marriage hall together?

they want to see you standing together outside the hall, they want to see you both getting in the car and leaving etc.

in some cases they have even asked why was there no Quran on the brides head.....o_O

its like they have these checklists from the 1800's and they think we all follow the exact same traditions.

It's really stupid, not everyone has the same type of functions. We just want to have one function in Canada because it doesn't make sense for us to have both when we're from two different countries. I can't believe they go as far as saying love marriages are not culturally acceptable LOL

Nah...I hate drama...No one cried, no one made a scene...lol. It was a simple leave together and we took some pictures.

Also no one held Quran over her head and that was not on purpose.

How much cash are you allowed to take in hand, as first time landed immigrant? I know for regular travellers it's CAD 10k. So is it the same for first timers as well? Will traveller's cheques be treated as cash too?

its 10K cad for new immigrants as well. travellers cheques count towards the 10K also.

however, please note, this is NOT a limit. you can bring as much as you want, you can bring a million in cash if you want, its just that you have to declare that you have more than 10K and they make you fill a form and question you where you got it from. it is not related to CRA or anything, its just for tracking purposes to make sure you are not bringing in black money or if the money is used for terrorist activities they can track where it came from etc.

This makes me worry bcz i dont have any photo of our rukhsati me and my wife was laughing at the time of rukhsati and there wasn’t any mallo drama scene. To be honest i dont think so this matters as one have shared dozen photos of barat, walima day and the post wedding photos and all they interested in rukhsati photo lameeeeee :rolleyes:

Hi everyone! I’m an October 2017 applicant and my file was transferred to LVO on February 1, 2018. The automated phone system (and GCKEY too, I’m assuming) says that both eligibility and bcg check are underway. I know this is different from most other’s timelines, where bcg check is one of the very last things to happen. Is there anyone in the same boat as me, or can anyone shed light on what will happen next with my application?

Calm down let me answer your question, LVO is keep improving their process and they are now a days . They starting BGC immediately . so this is normal. all the new cases in 2018 and end of 2017 are going with same trend. Their BGC starts even before transfering to LVO.

They do the same with inland applicants doesn't necessarily mean it's faster though. My brother in law's bgc started first and medical was at the very end, still took the same amount of time.

Actually this was one of the reason for her rejection, she also told LVO that she will do the functions in Canada as all her family members are in Canada. Now she saying that after rejection she is going to do all her functions in Pakistan as her family now came to Pakistan to make formal wedding events.

So her reason for rejection was that she wanted to do the function in Canada or that her statement contradicted itself, did she tell them in the interview she was going to do the function in Pakistan ? Confused..there are many people who choose to do the function here though..must have been more than that
