The chronology of our immigration file :
September 2017: sending our immigration file under the “strategic initiative” component to the immigration service of the province of New Brunswick
July 2018: processing of our file at the Federal level
May 2019: invitation to the medical examination
July 2019: reception of our Permanent Residency. It needs to be validated at the Canadian border
August 28, 2019: approbation of our Permanent Residency in Montreal (Trudeau) Canada airport.
August 29, 2019: arrival in Fredericton.
Our immigration file took nearly 2 years between the first steps with the immigration agent in Fredericton and our arrival in Canada. Immigration services are very picky/particular so just take your courage in you two hand and never give up until your arrive because believe me, it is worth it! The tones of documents to provide are impressive, including school diplomas, pay stubs, bank statements, extracts from criminal records, civil status and letters of recommendation.
Sometimes overwhelmed by administrative paperwork, you will feel demotivated but do not give up because the hours spent working on your request are worth the effort!
Regarding the cost of this immigration, we needed nearly 2000 euros for the "administrative processing" component including the processing of our file at the Provincial and Federal level and the many Fedex letters to send our supporting documents. Then count your air plane tickets and for us, a considerable excess baggage fees!
