Tips for moving from California to Vancouver

Tip 1: F. Aster moved from California to Vancouver one year ago
There is such a fantastic expat community here that I found it really useful to make contacts when I initially arrived. It can be a quite a lonely experience when you first move to a new city but this really helped.

Tip 2: T. Ascott moved from California to Vancouver nine months ago
Do some shopping around for airfares. I know this sounds obvious because you do it all the time when looking around at vacation options, but when I was making this move I really saved some money by doing some online comparisons.

Tip 3: R. Baugh moved from California to Vancouver six months ago
Some friends advised me to find an apartment close by to city hall. It was good advice as I didn’t know the city that well, but I found a small place that is just so handy to everything. I suppose if you were moving with a family it might be different, but it was perfect for what I wanted.

Tip 4: D. Rover moved from California to Vancouver four months ago
I got in contact with a real estate agent before I moved as I already had an idea of what I wanted and the areas that I wanted to consider. I think that made it much easier to hit the ground running when I arrived.

Tip 5: L. Jimmy moved from California to Vancouver eight weeks ago
Get more boxes than you think you need. It is incredible how quickly your accumulated stuff builds up and when you start packing you realize pretty quickly that you’re going to run out!

Tips for obtaining your visa for your move to Vancouver

Tip 1: E. McGraw moved from California to Vancouver one year ago
Just make sure that you have all the correct documents ready and you’ll have no problems at all. I found it really straight forward but I didn’t have to hunt around too much to provide them with my necessary paperwork.

Tip 2: P. Ramsay moved from California to Vancouver ten months ago
I was told by one person that I had to make an appointment or I wouldn’t be seen, but I actually had no issues and got everything sorted out in person without any problems at all. Of course, rules change all the time so I don’t know if I just had a lucky day!

Tip 3: J. Hester moved from California to Vancouver six months ago
I did a little looking around on the internet and really found a mountain of information that helped me with what I needed to do and prepare for. I had my visa arranged without too many issues or delays at all.

Tip 4: V. Williams moved from California to Vancouver four months ago
Just check and double check that you have everything on the required list available so that there is no reason for them to reject your request. It makes sense really. All of the proof of income, employment and other documentation is pretty important because that way they know that you are not going to be a drain or problem in the Canadian system, I think most countries use a similar checking process.

Tip 5: T. Rose moved from California to Vancouver six weeks ago
I found the process to be really straightforward, and just made sure that I had everything written down so that I didn’t have any misunderstandings or miscommunication with everything that needed to happen.
