      Congratulations  @QB87 Our AOR is 20 May so this week we will be at the 9 x months mark - FRUSTRATING to say the least!

      We applied for AIPP. Our application is 72% complete with 52 days left (6 months processing time). The only irritation is reading about other applicants that have received pre-arrival services before us even when they have sent their application after us. I guess different visa offices around the world follow different steps but I don't see the South African office as being very busy but I could be mistaken.

      Hey @AntoinetteG So here it is..... Showing proof of funds and bringing it are two different actions. For the application, the biggest thing is to be able to show you have the funds to settle in Canada. As you've mentioned you should be able to use your RA and pension fund. Whether you bring these monies into Canada when it is time for you to land or delay it is another thing. Why do you need to bring it all with you at the time of landing is the question. There is really no reason why you can't receive the monies after you land. It's dangerous to be carrying this amount. At landing, you only need to show that you have access to the amount you said you have. Normally, statements should be able to do that. Make sure you have arranged for what you need to be able to transfer the funds without you being present in SA. (POA, bank managers, etc. if you need it) This is just my 2c. This doesn't really address your question on whether you can get RA and pension out before leaving but hope it gives some food for thought. PS So when we did ours, I showed some liquid funds plus our property to top it off. By the time we were leaving, the property was not sold and we had a few thousands with us for settling. The rest of the funds came way after.

      Hi Everyone I have been making steady progress with the whole application process...until...the dreaded proof of funds came up. (Side note: I haven’t yet created my EE profile as I need to sort out PoF first)... I was planning on using my RA’s and Pension Fund (Sanlam and Discovery) as PoF, as this is well over the required amount and selling my property won’t make up the amount. After a consultation with Deanne (Canada Abroad) I was told that although I can use my RA and Pension Fund (no problem there), the money would need to be in my account when I leave RSA, and not after landing (which makes sense). My understanding of Financial Emigration however is that it can only happen once I am in Canada? Has anyone had any success in getting money out of RA’s and a Pension Fund BEFORE leaving RSA and used the money as PoF?  I am totally stuck, and my broker is unable to help me...I have now been told to find out for myself from Sanlam and Discovery as they keep on telling my broker I need to do financial emigration first...and the broker can’t help me further, mainly because the message just gets relayed. Any ideas? Help? I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
