Where to submit the passports of wife and children? it is with me in Canada




I am PR in canada and i have applied to sponsor my wife and children. Few days back i got instructions from CIC to do the medical exam of wife and children in India. I know the next step will be PPR – Passport Request. Where to submit the passports of wife and children presently it is with me in Canada. I heard that it is illegal to take the passports overseas (?)

You heard it right - it is illegal to take some else's passport overseas - even if it your spouse and child.

Since they're in India, the pp will be required to be submitted in India. Technically no courier will carry the passport. I guess your best bet would be to go to India (with the passport) and hope you're not questioned enroute.

Why on earth would you carry your wife and children's with you? What if there was an emergency and they had to visit you?

Courier the passports to them, but disguise them as regular documents. Or if someone trusted is going to India, ask them to carry it with them.

Whatever was your PR journey, their journey will be exactly the same with the addition of a few extra documents and papers of spousal sponsorship from your side.

Otherwise the same process of medicals, visa stamping, PCC, COPR etc for them.

Check this girl's process.

https://medium.com/@aditik7/my-express-entry-migration-to-canada-ef4d5b97fc0d.

"Now that you have all of the documents needed, you are all set and ready to upload them, pay the required fees using your credit card, and submit your permanent residence application. You will receive a confirmation (known as Acknowledgement of Receipt or AOR in immigration jargon), which is yet another email and document from the government outlining the next steps. The countdown to process your application begins from this AOR date. My application was approved within three months and I believe that the pace has not decreased. You can track the stages your application goes through using a neat dashboard in your my CIC portal. I must warn you that the stages can sometimes seem rather random and illogical, but they typically follow something like this:

AOR → Medicals Passed → Background check in progress → Background check not applicable → Background check in progress → PPR (Passport Request)

The PPR stage more or less signifies you have received your Canadian permanent residence. You receive a Ready for Visa email from the Canadian government outlining the next steps. These involve submitting your passport and a copy of the email, along with two recent photographs (per the specifications outlined) to the nearest VFS Global center in your city. My wait time at the VFS center was about an hour, but the submission process went smoothly. The only slight glitch is that you need to pay the required fees by cash, so ensure that you withdraw sufficient cash before heading to the center. I opted to collect my passport from the same center; however, I know a lot of people who have had it safely delivered by VFS for an extra fee to their house.

I received my passport with the permanent residence visa affixed in it, photographs, and Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) document exactly after a week. The photographs and COPR need to be handed over to the Immigration officer at the port of landing. More on this in a subsequent post. "
