My understanding is this: you are sponsorED by your Canadian wife under family sponsorship scheme. You have the approval visa already in your passport. You can come and land as Cnd PR at any time. You don´t need your SPONSOR wife to accompany you. Only in other sort of immigrations (for example Skilled worker), the SPONSOR person should come first with his sponsorED family.

The weight you carry is something to do with the airlines, like any normal airline trip. If you iintend to send your personal items and belongings, by shipment, then you are entitled to this...provided that you follow the rules on your allownace. Check CIC website

thanks for the tip with the luggage issue, i found out that it is 23kg, not 20kg as i thought

i was meaning how sure are you on the "sponsor does not have to accompany the sponsee " issue,

Steve some common sense please!

I understand some of you guys get nervous crossing the borders these days but please relax.

Your in a genuine relationship according to you and Immigration. That means also that you must be old enough to travel by yourself.

There is no issue that your PR Visa already issued to you will be questioned upon arrival.

Come on relax.

The issue of you being in or not being in a genuine marriage has been dealt with.

The PRINCIPAL APPLICANT must be present upon "landing" (becoming a PR).
Since you would be the principal applicant you are the only one who needs to be present.

You must bring a valid passport with an immigrant visa, as well as your confirmation of permanent residency paper (big white paper with your picture on it). As long as the have been no changes to your status or criminal history and no lies were told to obtain said documents you should have no issue.

Hope that helped.
