Hope you are doing good.
I have few queries, can you please suggest what to do.
1) my passport is expiring in Jun 2021 and i am feb 2021 AOR, should i renew my passport now and send its scanned copy to IRCC or they will ask for the new passport?
2) Me and my spouse have taken covid vaccine (as we work in govt department) we have vaccination certificate, can i send those certificates to IRCC? ( To accelerate the PR process)
3) my sister and my spouse's brother both are Canadian PR, can i send their PR card to IRCC as we are likely exempted from the travel restrictions (To accelerate the PR process)
Thank you in advance
Thank you for your response and have a great day1. You should renew your passport and send the scan of the renewed passport via webform. IRCC may ask, but they will do it later when a decision is about to be made and may delay the processing. So better you do it now.
2. It will have no impact. You can send it, but Canada has not rolled out any policy to exempt people who have been vaccinated.
3. You will have to request exemption separately for both, you can your spouse, see the guidelines for how to request. This can only be done if you have a Canadian visa or your PR visa has been approved. Alternatively, you can apply for a tourist visa and claim exemption under extended family.
There are no restrictions on the amount of money you can bring into or take out of Canada, nor is it illegal to do so.Good day @legalfalcon may I know your recommendation/suggestion re bring CAD10,000? Is the CAD10,000 limit which means one doesn’t have to declare is per family or per person? If I will bring CAD10,000 and my son has with him CAD1,300 because it’s his money, do we declare my son’s funds? Or the no-need-to-declare limit is per person? Also, what if we have around USD500-USD1,000 and another 1,000 in local currency from our country, do we need to declare everything that is over CAD10,000? Again, TIA.
There will be no issues as long as you declare them.Hello @legalfalcon
I am an outland CEC applicant, AOR May 21,2020.
Just 2 weeks ago I was asked to submit schedule A and travel history and I did complete and submitted it on March 17. However, just now I realized that I left out 2 trips on my travel history from 2013 and 2014. I went to south korea for 11 days and hong kong for 4 days and I completely forgot about these trips until now.
I am updating the form now and will give it to my lawyer, but I just want to know if there is going to be a problem with this?
You only have to submit a PCC when you submit your application. If IRCC wants a revised PCC they will ask.please can you help. Do I need to do police report again the first one was submitted in April 2019, but my passport and medical expired due to covid 19. In the process of getting new international passport and upfront medical do i need to get new medical too. IRCC is not asking for anything. Aor is May 2019 pnp paper applicant
