your PR application has been approved, your status will be finalized after you
complete the Landing Interview at an In-Land Immigration office in
Do not get too nervous about the Landing Interview as it will not put your application at risk of getting rejected. Rather, it’s used as a means to clearly confirm your intentions of coming to Canada.
My interview was scheduled to take place at 1 pm. I went to the office around 10 minutes earlier. I gave my appointment letter and passport and received my number at the reception. There were around eleven others waiting in line before me. While it was a bit unsettling to have many people in the waiting room with me, it came to be my turn after about a 45-minute wait. The interview took place through an over-counter-service similar to that at an airport counter.
of the things asked included:
You should expect to be asked similar questions.
Signature to confirm your personal information written in the Confirmation of Permanent Residence.
was passed over a copy of the form. They mentioned that I would need it again
when applying for citizenship, and to take care not to lose it.
In regards to provincial medical insurance and the changing of Social Insurance Number, I was told to expect about a 3-4 weeks wait to receive the SIN card.
I was then told, “Congratulations! You are a Permanent Resident from now!” with a smile. The interview was complete. I believe that I was short by ten minutes. I did not need to show the pre-paid Landing Fee receipt.
On the same floor where the IRCC office was located, there was a Service Canada branch. There, I completed the procedures for the re-issuing of my Social Insurance Number.
To first read about the experiences of others that have gone through the landing interview process themselves has done a great deal in helping me feel more at ease. (confirming e.g. entry dates) Thank you!
I had many very specific questions pertaining to my case, I was able to
complete my application with much ease as all of my questions were each very
am very glad to have had my case handled by Ms. Ueda.
Should I be in need of such services again in the future, I will surely have Ms. Ueda take care of it!
