Your part-time experience can be equated to full-time work experience based on the number of hours per week taht you worked.

To qualify in the skilled worker category, you must have at least 1 continuous year of full-time work experience (full-time equivalent work experience if you worked part-time).

Well no :o - the passport takes only 15 days to issue in the U.K. All the processing time involved can be seen on The High Commission's Web site

It's a significant time anyway I agree.

Next topic, please?

I never thought we would be getting into so much discussion simply in order to help Hazel with her situation! Anyway, this will work out, sooner or later. If the airline will let her fly back to Canada from the U.K. with an infant in her arms, she can wait in Canada for her permanent residence. A Ca...

Well, assuming nelsona is right as he usually is, he may have solved a problem - but l am not sure it is so easy anymore to obtain a U.K. passport for a baby - take a look for instance at this

Oops! nelsona is correct. The baby does not need to do a medical. Hazel still needs to complete additional forms for her PR application however, because, even though the baby is a Canadian citizen, her Family Information Form, IMM5406 will now be incorrect. Also, her addresses on the Schedule 1 form...

Please --- Rather than getting into a debate about personalities or blaming anyone, let's look at the practical aspects of this situation. I agree that nelsona makes a big contribution to this board, and I'm sure he is only trying to help Hazel. The outcome of all this seems to be: (1) No evident w...

Hi, I think this young lady is from England - "falling pregnant" in her vernacular simply means becoming pregnant (probably derived from the - somewhat Victorian - idea that pregnancy "befell" her). Admittedly the expression is not a Canadian one, and I recall a friend of mine who is a social worker...

The most common reason for refusal of a sponsorship application is that Immigration Canada thinks the relationship is not genuine. Bad debts and a bad credit rating should not hurt your sponsorship application, although lack of funds might hurt when applying for extensions to stay in Canada. You can...

The conjugal category is very tricky. My recommendation is to stay away from it - especially if by doing an application of that kind you raise questions about whether there is enough money for you to manage. They do want to know the in's and out's of your relationship. They receive thousands of appl...

Hi,

Yes, you are correct. The only thing is, the initial study permit application must be made outside Canada. Thereafter, if you need renewals, you can do the renewals inside Canada.

Congratulations! :) I am a little perplexed, however. Since you applied inland, you should have received a letter of initial approval, and at that point you would have been entitled to apply for an open work permit. :? If this is an inland spousal application and you are well past that point - he sh...

A U.S. immigration question - not an appropriate question for this forum.

In Canada this would definitely not pose a problem. Having the charges withdrawn is more favourable for you than even being found Not Guilty.

Hi, if you have a solid 68 points, then you should be accepted without a job offer (provided of course you meet the mimimum funds requirement).

This is a Customs issue not an Immigration one, and may be better posed on the Tax/Accounting Forum. If all else fails, you can try calling Canada Customs at 1 (204) 983-3500 or 1 (506) 636-5064 and then press 0 in the hope that you can speak to a human being. Perhaps they can tell you if this is a ...

Yes, seeing you mentioned in earlier posts that you are a Canadian citizen, this would probably be under NAFTA.

Your earlier posts really belong in the Accounting and Tax forums, not here.
