It depends. If he is under 31, he may qualify for a working holiday visa for Australian nationals. In a few cases, it is possible to work without a work permit - or he may have to obtain a postive Labour Market Opinion before he can obtain a work permit.

I seem to be the only one answering these at the moment.

Never mind, I know the answer: redo the forms.

Applying for a permanent resident visa in a different name than the one shown on your passport does not work well.

Hi Greg,

A quick reply:

1) Your chances of immigrating seem good.

Hi Maja, You would need to show concrete plans to return to Canada. I tend to agreee that you may have problems with proving your finances are adequate, but it may be worthwhile to try. The issue is you may be refused a visitor visa for Canada when you apply for one, because the Embassy will conside...

Yes, I think that a sponsorship application is best as it will be the fastest route. In your case, you do not have to show any specific amount of funds in order to sponsor him It is correct that you have to show that you intend to live together in Canada when the application is approved. Given that ...

Hazel, I think you have misunderstood - unless there is a typo, the question is not about immigrating to the U.K., but about immigrating to Canada. For two adults and two minor children, the government processing fees are $1400 Canadian, currently a little over 700 pounds. Professional assistance wi...

Thank you.

The procedure is to write to the visa post and inform them that you are withdrawing your application. If you have paid the Right of Permanent Residence Fee already, it will be refunded.

This is a very dificult question to answer. If you are convicted, this would require analysis of the U.S. statute under which you are convicted, and comparison with the relevant Canadian statutes to see if in the circumstances of your case this would also be a criminal offense in Canada.

Re:

1) No, unless you can meet the 730 day test there is no way.
2) Yes, you would have to start all over again
3) Yes, you have to submit police cleraances all over again
