Hi Dealdish. I think I have been speaking with your husband over on baords.ie.hahaha.
You would really be best off getting your work permit before leaving, just to be sure there is no complications.

Will ye do medicals over there? or in Ireland, or the PR?

Will ye fly our of shannon or dublin? Airtransat do a flight direct to toronto, which means no extra visa's for going through the us.

Good luck in your adventure :)

Thanks so much so just book flights and bring sinp approval and job offer.seriously is it that easy
No, it's not that easy. To my knowledge, you can't just take your SNIP approval and get a TWP. You have to await your PR application to run its course.

Well, it seems the residency takes about a year (email from saskimmigration today). But the work permit takes 6-8 weeks to come through. You cant just show up at border control it seems.

One word of warning with Air Transat... while their fares may be good, please be sure to read the fine print in regards to baggage allowances.

Did you know that Air Transat only allows you ONE piece of carry on luggage (other than a camera/laptop or purse) and you are limited to 11 (eleven) pounds (5kg) in that piece of carry on luggage. They weigh ALL carry on baggage and will charge you an arm and a leg if you are over the 11 pound limit.

You are allowed ONE checked bag, and it must not be more than 51 (fifty one) pounds (23kg)... if you are between 24-32kg, there is a CAD 75$ fee.

If you want to take a second piece of checked luggage, the fee is CAD 100$ for the first piece and CAD 200$ for the second.

Air Canada flies between Canada and the UK, so you might want to check them out. Their Economy Class seats are slightly larger than Air Transat's and they don't have the same carry on bag weight restriction and their excess luggage allowance fees are lower (and they offer a discount if you pay in advance).
