Hi guyz,
My question is for those who have already got ppr request. Is thr anything mention on ppr email about passport validity? My passport expiry is Jan 2015 and Pak embassy refused to renew before 6 months.

It will b great help if someone copy paste ppr email hiding their data.

Thanks
I have also raised the same query on this forum. I confirmed it from my lawyer and also one of my friend told me that if you will get visa before validity of 6 months, so there will be no issue.

Otherwise you have to renew it after June 2014.

Passport Specifications
If any of the passports submitted do not meet the following specifications, all passports will be returned to you without visas. This delay will shorten the amount of time that you will have to travel to Canada to become a permanent resident.
1. All names and dates of birth must be printed in each passport in English or French.
2. The given name (first name) of the passport-holder must be clearly printed on the Given Name line of the biodata page of each passport. The surname (last name) of the passport-holder must be clearly printed on the Surname line of the biodata page of each passport. They should match your Updated Information Chart.
3. Your spouse must have their own passport. Your accompanying children should also each have their own passports.
4. Each passport must have at least two empty pages.
5. For your visas to have maximum validity, all passports should be valid for at least 12 months from the date of your medical examinations.
6. All passports must be intact and not worn, torn or otherwise damaged; the laminate on the biodata page must be securely attached. Each page must be securely affixed to the passport; there cannot be any loose pages. Ordinary passports are the only type of passport into which a permanent resident visa may be inserted. Diplomatic, official, special or other similar types of passports are NOT acceptable.

Hi Every One,

We are at last stage of our VISA process, so I think it is right time to plan for life in Canada. We will be moving to Calgary in 2014. I have few questions for those who are already in Calgary and especially in bookkeeping/accounting profession.

-Is it good idea to do some online courses from Canadian Virtual University? Will employers take these courses into account before deciding who to give job to? If yes, are there any specific courses any one can mention?

-Are these short term courses helpful if some one want to pursue degree courses after this?
Dear Shahzad

Contact any one who is living in Calgary. He is the one who can inform you "Ground Temperatures"
Radars can guess

Stay Blessed
