I have applied for renewal of PR Card. I received an email from IRCC that I need to provide All passport copies held in last 5 years along with Personal immigration entry/exit record or Movement certificate issued by India. I have no idea how to get this document? Indian embassy doesn’t provide any such document or record. What should Is send them now?

One thing you could do is make a request to the Indian Embassy and submit the Indian Embassy’s response as part of the response to IRCC.

You should probably talk to an Immigration consultant.

I am in the process of renewing my PR card. My husband, a Canadian citizen, and I live in the U.S. now. I have fulfilled all of my residency requirements. I received an email today from Immigration asking for our Canadian address. We never claimed to still live in Canada and have used our current U.S. address on all documentation. Is a Canadian address a requirement to receive a renewed PR card?

PR Cards are normally mailed to addresses in Canada. Since you are allowed to remain outside of Canada because you are married to a Canadian citizen living outside of Canada, you may be allowed to request the PR Card be mailed to you. However, it’s possible IRCC will not waive the requirement and you may need to have it sent to an address you have in Canada (or a relative’s address).

We arrived March 20 2014 as a Permanent Resident, then my Son is now on the Philippines for a vacation for almost 1 year. He will be back next year August 2018 and our PR card will expire on Sept 2019. Is there gonna be a problem on his status if he will stay in the Philippines for 2 years? It was his first vacation since we arrived here last March 2014.

In order to renew his PR Card without issue, your son needs to not only meet the residence requirement of 2 years out of the last 5 living in Canada, but we suggest spending closer to 3 years in Canada. Since he will not be in this situation if he is overseas for two years, we recommend not reapply for his PR Card for a while until he exceeds the requirement. (He does need to return to Canada before his PR Card expires, though.)

My PR card has expired. To renew my card, I have applied for PR STATUS determination under humanitarian and compassion since I did not meet the obligation of residency time in 5 years.  At the moment I’m in Canada, but I need to travel for some courses, exams…..if I decide to leave canada would I be able to return to Canada even I’m still waiting for the result of my PR determination? What is the time process average for PR determination status (in Vancouver)?

Travelling is a very bad idea. An overseas office could revoke your status if you apply for a PRTD during your status determination. The only potentially less risky option would be to return to Canada by car.

There are no publicly available processing times for status determinations.
