You will find the landing procedure very straight forward.

You MUST have in your possession your CORP (Comfirmation of Permanent residence)a valid visa, a valid Passport and your proof of founds.

You would have to filled your customs declaration indicating what is arriving with you and what is going to arrive in a later date.

The CBSA officer will check your documents very quick and then he/she will refer you to Immigration.

The CIC agent will check you passport and CORP, he/she will ask you a few question such as your founds, any changes in your family composition and the address where your PR in going to be send by mail, and if there are no complications you will have to sign your CORP in 3 different spots and then the officer will sign it a well.

Last thing, the officer will stamp your Passport once you are admitted into Canada.

Usually will take about 10 minutes (depending of the amount of clients waiting in line to processed by CIC officers).

Have a nice trip.

Welcome to Canada

Funds to show/Living outside canada (in reply to: Urgent----->landing experience required)
I will be landing in Canada shortly by road. Have few questions:

1. I understand that the Imiigration officer asks the funds. Does it matter if the funds is less than what was mentioned at the time of application. For e.g the funds in cash I am taking is US$4000.00 instead of taking CAD$12000 equivailent in US dollars. Will the office ask to physically show the funds or does he just want to know how much you carrying?

2. Once the immigration officer stamps on our passport, can we turn around and enter US immediately or do we have to stay for one night in Canada?

3. How long can one stay outside Canada i.e. living/working in US on H1, once you become Canadian Permanent resident?

4. Is there any restrictions on the number of days of absence from Canada who are permanent residents?

5. I don´t have any relative or friend in Canada to give the mailing address for the card to arrive. Can anyone suggest how to approach this issue?

Gretaly appreciate your inputs.

Thanks,

Srikant

The officer might, he/she has the right to do so and not having enough funds the officer may be a cause to refuse your entry into Canada. It could happen.

2. Once the immigration officer stamps on our passport, can we turn around and enter US immediately or do we have to stay for one night in Canada?

Once your landing procedure is finalized you can "U" turn and go back to the US right away.

3. How long can one stay outside Canada i.e. living/working in US on H1, once you become Canadian Permanent resident?

You have to be in Canada 3 out of 5 years in order to keep your PR status.

4. Is there any restrictions on the number of days of absence from Canada who are permanent residents?

See the answer above.

5. I don?t have any relative or friend in Canada to give the mailing address for the card to arrive. Can anyone suggest how to approach this issue?

You can provide an address in a later date, doesn´t have to be at the time of your arrival.

Gretaly appreciate your inputs.
