Travel Arrangements for Permanent ResidencyJanuary 8, 2008
We are currently representing a client for Canadian immigration from the UK whose application for Canadian permanent residence was submitted to the Canadian High Commission in London. He decided to make a visit to Canada, but arrived with a one way plane ticket and had no accomodations arranged in advance, nor did he have any friends or family in Canada to visit. After a lengthy interview by immigration at the airport and a lengthy phone call from an immigration officer to me at my office, our client was admitted as a visitor to Canada. He could easily have been refused entry, however, so it is good practice to have a return ticket and prearranged accommodations when travelling to Canada as a visitor who is applying for permanent residency in Canada.
