移民局给新移民的全新登陆方式--电话登陆

December 8, 2017

移民申请的最后一步是登陆,英文叫Landing. 大致的流程是申请人拿着护照,登陆纸等资料从边境进入加拿大,经过边境服务署工作人员核对,并简单回答几个问题后,就可以回家等枫叶卡了。

 

为什么会有Landing这个说法?因为早期的加拿大移民来自欧洲,他们坐船在大西洋上晃晃荡荡,最后终于落地了,就是landing。所以,被批准的申请人带着文件从国外进入加拿大,在边境被正式确认移民身份,这是最传统的登陆方式。

 

对于很多已经在加拿大生活的申请人,例如在这里留学工作,然后移民申请被批准,这些申请人也得先离境,然后重新入境。一般都是开车去加美边境,出加拿大海关,进入美国海关,告诉对方我需要landing,美国海关做一些检查,然后指引你掉头回加拿大海关,这个过程英文叫flagpole. 比如哈法的申请人就可以去New Brunswick和缅因州边境登陆, Woodstock或者Saint Stephen,开车都是5个小时。

 

随着加拿大境内获批的移民数量增加,带来的一个问题是,边境工作量剧增。像我们这边人烟稀少的边境还好,多伦多那边的边境可是苦不堪言,本来每天正常过关的人数就不少,flagpole的人再一来,工作量加倍。加拿大人你懂的,5点一到,哪怕单词敲到一半,也是要关电脑走人的。加上边境署和移民局本就属于不同部门,所以他们就向移民局抗议,移民局无奈开通了境内办公室预约登陆流程。就是申请人可以通过和移民局在境内的办公室预约,去办公室完成landing.

 

这个流程的问题在于,1.移民局只在大城市设立办公室,边远地区的申请人还是要山长水远的跑过来,就为了回答那么两个问题;2.移民局办公室人手有限,预约经常在几个月之后,对于急着拿卡的人,来不及等。

 

最近一个月,我们见到一个新的登陆方式:电话登陆。申请人会收到一个邮件如下:

Dear applicant,

** Permanent residents (PR) of Canada must carry and present their valid PR card or permanent resident travel document (PRTD) when boarding a flight to Canada, or travelling to Canada on any other commercial carrier. If you do not carry your PR card or PRTD, you may not be able to board your flight, train, bus or boat to Canada.

If you receive this invitation but have already scheduled your landing with IRCC, please disregard this email. Please note if you are currently outside of Canada, this option for landing is not available.

 

Thank you for your interest in Canada.

 

从邮件内容看,应该是移民局新开通的登陆方式,并且挑选了一些申请人做测试。如果接受电话登陆,申请人只用在电话里回答问题,如是否有犯罪记录,是否被拒绝入境等,然后将登陆纸寄到移民局办公室,等他们签好以后会邮寄回申请人,完成移民身份确认环节。这个新流程对于边远地区的申请人挺方便,再也不用亲自跑来跑去。我们建议收到邀请的客户尝试下这个新方式,这种pilot program往往受重视,会比较快。
