Subject: Andy: any way to start my application process....
  Andy, thanks a lot for your answer! Yes, I realized that it will take a while and in the meantime, I can save and also try and get a job... but the problem is that my application has to go with either one... or proof of money or a job...and since I dont have "any of the above" my application will probably not be accepted at all!!! Right??? anyway to start my application process without those things and eventually send info on whatever i get first? job or money? hey, good spanish by the way, donde aprendiste a hablarlo? r u latin american? gracias por tu consejo :)

Phillip,

Well , When you sent your application , during the process you will receive a letter from CIC requesting to show a proof of founds (a bank statmentment)and you may have to show them at the port of entry , once you land in Canada.

For some countries where saving 10 grand is a big deal , sometimes is easier to get a loan from a local bank and paying back with a job in Canada once you land.

One thing though.. you may summit your application BUT during the process CIC will send you a letter requesting the proof of founds , it might take between months to a year(s) to get it.
Or in the interview (if is not waived).

BTW...
I was born in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Ok, so i can go on with my application anyway, and get ready for the letter requesting proof of funds... one more question (sorry man, but your really helping me here!) what does it mean when an interview is "waived"? i guess they don´t call you for an interview, but is that supposed to be good or bad? i can only imagine it is because they still don´t believe to have enough info in order to decide? Gracias por tus consejos, de verdad que son muy utiles. Como te esta yendo a ti en este proceso?

Cuando la entrevista es "waived" basicamente es que toda la informacion que el oficial de Migracion que esta revisando tu caso es lo suficientemente precisa segun su criterio.
Waived es bueno por que no tienes que ir a la entrevista , pero si es requerida tampoco es el fin del mundo.

Eso varia deacuerdo con el oficial.
Muchas veces ellos(as) determinan que la entrevista no es necesaria y en otras ocaciones deciden que si.

Generalmente este es el proceso.
Una vez que envies la aplicacion recibiras una carta llamada AOR (Acknoledgment of receipt) despues una carta llamada IA (initial assesment) que determinara si es requerida una entrevista.
Despues es posible que te pidan la prueba de fondos y tengas que hacer tu examen medico.
Finalmente recibiras una solicitud de pasaporte , donde tendras que enviarlo a la embajada y ellos estamparan tu visa de inmigrante.

Para mas informacion puedes visitar la pagina oficial de inmigracion a Canada.

www.cic.gc.ca

Me esta yendo bien con el proceso , estoy aplicando como miembro de clase familiar (mi esposa es Canadiense).Estamos casi en la ultima parte , solo falta que la policia en Canada me de luz verde y ....esperar la carta de solicitud de pasaporte.

Un abrazo
Andy

Phillip... I think Andy´s advice might be incorrect. when CIC does the Initial Assessment of your application the first thing they do is check that you have supplied all the correct forms, and requested items on the checklist. They do not determine if you qualify at this point. One of the things on the checklist is proof of funds. The funds must be unencumbered- it cannot be a registered loan. They could ask you several times during your application time to verify that the funds are still there to prevent the one day bank balance routine.

If you do not have a complete application, they will simply return everything to you. The biggest concern would be if they process your application in some way, retain your application fee but decline your application for lack of funds. (trust me, I have seen it happen)

I know this is not what you want to hear and I respect how much money we are talking about. However, those funds are critical to your economic survival once you arrive in Canada.

It is safe to assume that every application requires an interview. If all the documents are clear, information is beyond question, education and work experience is easily verified etc. and there is nothing to be gained by having an interview, CIC will say the interview is not required. ´waived´ is the legal term.

Having enough info to decide is not really the issue. It is veryfying that the applicant matches their education documents and work experience. Fraud in these areas are huge.

Well , for sure he has to sent the application with ALL the proper and complete documentation (I am sorry I didn?t say that), but my first advice was to save money before apply for Immigration at least start saving for a year.

I have just downloaded the checklist from the lima embassy and your right sharon, I do have to send proof of funds at the moment of my application. the issue was not about whether I can get the permit without the funds, I know how important they are... it was about whether I could start my application while i tried to get the funds... but it seems wont work... thanx for the tip... even though it was really something i didn´t want to hear.

I actually did not get you right Andy, I thought I could start my application process and then send my fund proof...

I have a friend who lived in Nigeria. Settlement money for immigration was impossible. In his situation, his family and relatives helped him put the money together. If they could not do it for themselves, at least someone they knew and loved would have a chance. I think over time, he paid them back (not immediately)
