I also heard that being born in Dewachen equals instant Buddhahood? Is that true?
Moreover, Shariputra, the living beings born in the Land of Utmost Happiness are all avaivartika.(non-retrogression)
Among them are many who in this very life will dwell in Buddhahood. Their number is extremely many; it is incalculable.
And only in measureless, limitless asamkyeyas of kalpas could they be counted.

(22) If, when I attain Buddhahood, Bodhisattvas in the Buddha-lands of other quarters who visit My Land should not ultimately and unfailingly reach the Stage of Becoming a Buddha after One More Life, may I not attain Perfect Enlightenment.
Excepted are those who wish to teach and guide sentient beings in accordance with their original vows.
For they wear the armour of great vows, accumulate merits, deliver all beings from birth-and-death, visit Buddha-lands to perform the Bodhisattva practices, make offerings to Buddhas, Tathagatas, throughout the ten quarters, enlighten uncountable sentient beings as numerous as the sands of the River Ganges, and establish them in the highest, Perfect Enlightenment.
Such Bodhisattvas transcend the course of practice of the ordinary Bodhisattvas, manifest the practices of all the Bodhisattva stages, and cultivate the virtues of Samantabhadra.
(36) If, when I attain Buddhahood, Bodhisattvas in the immeasurable and inconceivable Buddha-lands of the ten quarters, who have heard my Name, should not, after the end of their lives, always perform sacred practices until they reach Buddhahood, may I not attain Perfect Enlightenment.
(47) If, when I attain Buddhahood, Bodhisattvas in the lands of the other quarters who hear My Name should not instantly reach the Stage of Non-Retrogression, may I not attain perfect Enlightenment.
(48) If, when I attain Buddhahood, Bodhisattvas in the lands of the other quarters who hear My Name should not instantly gain the first, second and third insights into the nature of dharmas and firmly abide in the truths realized by all the Buddhas, may I not attain Perfect Enlightenment.

The Buddha said to Ananda, "Sentient beings who are born in that Buddha-land all reside among those assured of Nirvana.
The reason is that in that land there are neither beings who are destined to adverse conditions nor those whose destinies are uncertain.
"All Buddhas, Tathagatas, in the ten quarters, as numerous as the sands of the River Ganges, together praise the inconceivable, supernal virtue of Amitayus.
All sentient beings who, having heard his Name, rejoice in faith, remember him even once and sincerely transfer the merit of virtuous practices to that Land, aspiring to be born there, will attain birth and dwell in the Stage of Non-retrogression.
But excluded are those who have committed the five gravest offenses and abused the right Dharma."
I vow that when my life approaches its end,
All obstructions will be swept away;
I will see Amita Buddha,
And be born in His Land of Ultimate Bliss and Peace.
When reborn in the Western Land,
I will perfect and completely fulfill
Without exception these great vows,
To delight and benefit all beings.
The Assembly of Amita Buddha is completely pure;
When from a matchless lotus I am born,
I’ll behold the Tathagata’s measureless light as He appears before me
To bestow a prediction of Bodhi.
Receiving a prediction from the Thus Come One,
I’ll transform countless kotis of bodies,
And with wisdom power vast and great pervade the ten directions
To benefit the realms of living beings.
