    Urgent: New police certificate requirement!!!

    So I literally did all the same things you did and got all the same response (IE RCMP cant do it for lack of jurisdiction, Calgary Police does not do it and to call third party). Now there is one service in Calgary called L-1 Identity Solutions. He said they can do it, in fact when I try to clarify with him for the second time to make sure they can do it, he gave me some attitude lol. Now not sure if he did not know the information you mentioned above or if they can actually do it.

    Urgent: New police certificate requirement!!!

    If I am not mistaken this is the type of police check we should request for (https://www.canada.ca/en/parole-board/services/expungements/step-2-court-police-documents/fingerprint-based-criminal-record-check.html). Now I know the purpose of the link is not for immigration, but the type of check described in this link seems to be similar to the one the consulate is asking for. Please correct me if I am wrong.
  3. Thank You! I gave it all a quick read and helped me gain more clarity. Although Im confused about this police check thing. They accepted my documents at NVC do I need to get a new check done now?
  4. So it has been over a month since, I got a response from NVC saying that they accepted my documents. I have not heard back since then. I was wondering how long does it take for them to schedule interviews, and how long after the documents being accepted are the interviews in Montreal (on average)? Thank you
  5. Hello all, I am submitting my civil documents using CECA and it is asking to submit "PHOTOGRAPHS". It does not elaborate what kind of photographs. Is this for proof of relationship or a passport type of image or just a selfie with my phone lol I was wondering what kind of photograph should I submit? Thank you!
  6. So our petition has to got to the NVC stage and I noticed that they require my wife's latest tax transcript. So my wife and I are filling taxes together and because I own a corporation in Canada, we need to file some extra paperwork. Unfortunately IRS has released the paperwork need to fill out for a forgien corporation yet. So my Accountant is going to be filling for an extension and fill our taxes together when IRS makes the forms available. I expect to have the interview before we file our taxes. Hence we won't have the transcripts available. We can get her previous years tax transcript. But we may not have 2017 available for a few months. I was wondering could this be an issue? Has anyone else been in the same situation as this? Thank you
  7. So Geowrian Am I correct? There is only ban if they processed her as an "expedited deportation"? Not just because she worked without authorization. But I thought they do expatiated deportation when someone works with authorization, as work without authorization does not carry a ban by it self. Maybe the officers that day did not feel like doing extra paperwork lol
  8. I think he would have ban If she was put under expedited removal. Not if they found her inadmissible and she withdrew her application. So the question is back in 2016 did he withdraw his application at the border or was she removed from the country through expedited removal? When they found he ineligible they would have given her paperwork which would state what happened.

    Dual citizen?

    I have friend in Canada who is Canadian and UK dual citizen but she only travels on her Canadian passport. She has not had a problem, so far. She says she prefers traveling on a Canadian passport to the UK as the lines for foreign nationals are usually smaller then UK and EU passports. But not sure if UK requires you to travel on a UK passport.

    Dual citizen?

    Yeah to be honest I don't know why they changed the rules. In the past you did not need to but starting 2016 you need a Canadian Passport to visit and transit through Canada. I have posted a link below from the government of Canada site. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/dual-canadian-citizens-visit-canada.html Btw if you are entering the US, you need a US passport to enter the US (If you are a dual Citizen), just like Canada requires now. My advise is to carry both your passports when traveling.

    Dual citizen?

    Yes! good point. Giving up your Canadian citizenship is done by contacting the Canadian Government. Also another piece of information. Canada recently changed its law, in regards to Dual citizens entering Canada. You need a Canadian passport to enter. So you plan on visiting Canada. Make sure your passport is not expired.

    Dual citizen?

    Did you take steps to give up your Canadian Citizenship? If the answer is "No". You are a dual citizen.
