Q&A Categories Archives: PR Card FAQ

I am a Canadian citizen living and working in Singapore. My 10 year old son is also a Canadian citizen. Due to a change in the Canadian citizenship rules, my youngest daughter who was born in Singapore, did not automatically receive Canadian citizenship. She is 5 years old now and her PR has now been approved. However due to my job in Singapore, I would find it very difficult to keep her in Canada for the 730 day requirement for PRs. Is it possible to get an exemption to this rule for Citizen parents of very young PR children?

She is exempt from the residency requirement because of your citizenship. Next time you apply for her PR Card, you just need to prove you are her parent and live with her.

My husband is a Canadian Permanent Resident for 10 years and his PR is expired but is in the process of being renewed since February. I am a Canadian. He is a Nicaraguan citizen with a valid Nicaraguan passport. He has a valid US Visa since 2009 that expires in 2019. We as a family with our daughter are going to Cancun, Mexico for a wedding of our daughter’s Godmother. I know he can leave Canada but can he board on the airline on his return flight back to Vancouver, BC Canada? As grounds airline staff is it their job to authorise the passengers right to board in this circumstance? Or could he still board and be screened and likely questioned at thr Canadian Customs when landed? He will apply for the Travel Document with all supporting documents for PRs once he arrives in Cancun MX. Does he go to the Cancun Consulate agency? Or is it to be mailed only to Mexico City? We are concern with time and safety. Our trip is only 7 days long. Will he at least be able to board the plane and prove his residency at Canadian Customs once he lands in the airport? If he ends up having to fly to US, does he need to also prove his trip home to Canada from the US airport (Seattle or Bellingham)? I ask because I am unsure if US would simply let him with his US Visa and his Canadian residence address and supporting documents! My husband then would travel in a commercial vehicle (Shuttle bus) to Canada. But he would get off the shuttle bus at a stop before the border and travel back in a private car to enter Canada with his expired PR pending renewal and all necessary support documents to prove his residency. I will pick up my husband at the border.

He will likely not be allowed to board the plane unless he has a PRTD. If you are unsure of where to submit the application where it will be processed fastest, you can contact the Consulate. (You can also send the application ahead of time to try to get it processed by the time you get there.)

His other option, taking the bus to the border and then driving across with you, is much more likely to succeed simply because PRTD processing time is erratic and there is no guarantee it will get done while you are there.

I was a Protectec Person here in Canada. On January 2016 I applied for my PR and I include my common Law Partner Who is in El Salvador in my PR Aplication. Today I got my PR, just wating for my PR card. So my questions are…1 how many time do we have to wait for some news about my partner PR? Is my partner acepted at the same time?

If you were living apart for a long time it would be very hard to convince IRCC that you are a common law couple.

You should check the application status online.
