Subject: Does principal applicant have to land first?
  I am a Engineer with 11 years of experience and my wife has done Masters in English Literature and she has 6 years of working experience as a teacher. I also have a small daughter aged 3 years. We are interested in immigrating to Canada as skilled workers.

Since my wife scores more points than me (due to her Masters degree) and is also expected to perform much better than me in IELTS, I would like to make her the principal applicant. At the same time I would like to go alone to Canada first and call my family later after 4-5 months once I get a bit settled.

My question is:

Can a dependent family member land in Canada first and call the principal applicant later? I understand visa is issued individually to all members.

Nop...Principal applicant MUST land first. Dependants may accompany PA or land later but within visa validity period.

I agree with Sunrup. Principal applicant first then rest follow.

The principal applicant is the leader of the pack, he/she is expected to lead ahead of the group. This is not chess, in which the pawns will make first moves then the King will just follow.

Dear All,

If Principal applicant is landing, does he/she have to show proof of funds for all dependents at the port of entry or just the $CAN 10000 for one person.?

Thanks in advance for your responses,

Vanpee
