Okay great thanks @legalfalcon for your help!! I guess we are on the same page.You can claim points for any Canadian education that is from an approved institution. However, you cannot get PGWP, which would depend on your status and the nature of the program as I responded earlier.
Hello @legalfalcon ,
I have received a very wierd request from IRCC. There is a Request letter that has popped in my portal asking for my dependent child to be added to my profile. However....I dont have a child! Not quite sure how to go about this.
Some context and background: I am a FSW in the post AOR stage (I had recently added my spouse post marriage to my application). In all the forms asking for details of children I had explicitly written Not Applicable; I am wondering if the system read Not Applicable as the name of 'my child' ? I dont think this is the case though as the form filling guides state that you have to fill NA or Not Applicable in the irrelevant fields.
This has seriously put me in worry as I am worried this may further delay/complicate the application and I am in the AOR stage since Feb'21.
@legalfalcon : Can you share your insights here?
Dear Legal Falcon,
I would like to have your kind guidance for the below. I got the COPR and will be reaching Canada by 01 Mar 23
1. Due to Medical Emergency, I have to withdraw all my funds which I maintained and showed with IRCC during the PR process. Is this ok to go for it and be noted that I can able to deposit back the required funds in the account by 01 Feb 23? Will this create an issue?
2. Does the border officer will check the current statement and bank letter or the previous 6 months for the fund's maintenance?
3. Or can I take all the 20,500 CAD by cash when I am landing with my family of 3? By this, I can inform the immigration officer that the required funds are in hand.
4. I would like to take only 10,000 CAD in cash and the balance excess cash in the account as stated above by depositing back by 01 Feb 23.
This is an emergency due to which I request your kind reply.
The points are awarded when you apply, i.e., when you create your profile. If your age changes prior to getting an ITA, your points will be deducted. IF it changes after ITA, you will be exempt from the deduction. see https://bit.ly/3AnvU22
If your application is approved, and in the system the current visa number and COPR is reflected, then you can surely travel on the same documents.
Not sure what your question is. Next step for what? and what are you assuming?Thanks @legalfalcon! I have a similar circumstance that just emerged today. Just received my PPR and it says I must follow the steps within 30 days including sending the passport to Ottawa within 30 days. It also says please notify via webform immediately if there’s been any major events such as birth/death etc and so I informed about the birth of child and provided a passport copy since it was just issued, using the webform document upload. Do you know what the next step is? Can I safely assume that it’s okay to hold on to my passport for now and that I’ll get a new PPR including newborn later? Will they inform me what docs are required to add my baby? I’m nervous that I won’t hear back at all and then after 30 days they might tell me it’s all been canceled. For context I’m based in the US and have upcoming travel in the next month for H1B stamping so wanted to get some clarity/insights around timeline for this. Appreciate your guidance. Thanks!
1. Its does not matter and neither is it asked anywhere. All you have to do is provide your address in Canada and show that you are a PR, and can support your parents is inviting them on a supervisa.@legalfalcon thanks. I just got two last question.
1.) Would you recommend me to inform IRCC in my invitation letter that currently I am in my home country with my parents? Or I can skip that information?
2.) My parents don't have US visa or previous Canadian visa so should they use the old GC key for their visitor visa application or rather the new portal ? I heard there are many rejections for the new portal applications. What is your advice sir?
1. Its does not matter and neither is it asked anywhere. All you have to do is provide your address in Canada and show that you are a PR, and can support your parents is inviting them on a supervisa.
2. That is your choice. Even if they have a US visa or have been issued a Canadian visa previously, the new application has nothing to do with the previous visa issuance, can you can submit the new application either with the GC ket or the new portal.
