      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!

      As most have stated, this is correct. If arriving separately, main applicant should land first. The type of landing (whether soft or hard) doesn’t change the requirement.

      Wow Flashie, thanks so very much! Your reply was amazing. No doubt my friends will find value in it. Whenever you find yourself in the Lower Mainland, let me know and we can go grab a cup of coffee at Timmies   I only wish you the very best with your future studies etc, what a grand adventure!

      Hi there.   Our AOR is 20 November.  Passed medicals on the 11 December and did biometrics on the 17 December.  We then received request to pay RTPR fee on 30 Decemebr which we did right away.  Since then it has been silence.  We are going through EE with an Ontario nomination.   How far along in the process are you?
