  1. Got Landing Papers but want to renew my passport

    Q: I received my landing papers a while back. My current passport expires in July 2000 & I have to enter canada before May 2000. I want to renew my passport while I am in US. I will get a new passport which will have a new number ( I will also get back old passport which will be marked canceled). Will this create any problems at the landing time??

    A: I would not recommend applying for a new passport until after you have landed if you can avoid this. While most immigration officers at ports of entry will amend an immigrant visa accordingly, some will not and this could create problems.

  3. Opening a Bank account from overseas

    Q: I already have my immigration visa, i plan to move over to BC on the next spring but i've been searching and searching in my country and i haven't found any canadian bank branch here, only representative offices in the Capital of my country (Bogota, Im in Cali). Is there any way to open an account in Canada from overseas or should i take my money with me? (anyway it is not going to be more than $12.000 canadian currency)

    A: It is typically difficult to open a bank account when not physically present. You will need to get in touch with a bank in the region of your intended residence in order to obtain the necessary documentation in advance. Not all banks are willing to open accounts without the applicant present, however.

    FYI: there are indeed many new immigrants openned their bank account from overseas. Some of them did via the website of the bank. Links to the major banks in Canada may be obtained here

  5. Bring in car bought in europe

    Q: I know we can bring our properties when landing at the first time arrive in Canada. What about the good i.e. Car , that we bought in Europe?

    A: Unless the car you bought in Europe was specifically built for use in Canada or the United States, it cannot be imported into Canada, when you immigrate here. The exception would be if the car is at least 15 years old.

    All cars imported to Canada must meet Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety standards. Cars manufactured for use in Canada do meet them, and have a Transport Canada compliance sticker to show this.

    Since US standards are very similar to Canadian standards. Most US cars can be imported to Canada with minor modifications made to them (daytime running lights, bilingual labelling, a notice on the dash that the odometer reads in miles instead of kilometres). Transport Canada has a list of cars BUILT TO US STANDARDS which can be imported to Canada, at:

    If your car meets Transport Canada's, then it must be processed through the Registrar of Imported Vehicles. Their website is at: http://www.riv.com.
