I’m currently in US on F-1 OPT visa, received CoPR and have to do soft landing latest by 29th May 2020.
Also getting married next month in February and hence want to do the soft landing in next two weeks because:
(i) I cannot travel outside US from April 1 - Oct 1 this year due to pending H1B petition my company will file.
(ii) Change in marital status at this stage will likely delay PR processing.
I had the following questions:
i) Do i become a Permanent Resident as soon as I do the soft landing?
ii) If yes, am I still have to inform CIC about change in my marital status when i get married next month (after soft landing)?
iii) If i do inform CIC about getting married, will it cause delay in issuing physical PR card?
iv) Is it true that I can apply for PR for my spouse only after I start living in Canada?
Any responses will be much appreciated.
