Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
Permanent Resident Travel Document. I am a permanent resident in Canada (just activated it on 17-Feb-2017. Therefore my PR card is not issued yet. Now my only grandmother died and the funeral is next week. I am able to go to Switzerland but not able to return to Canada without a PR card or a PR Travel document (which can only be obtained from outside of Canada – but I would only be in Switzerland for about 1 week – 4 business days. I have been in touch with the border services, CIC helpcenter, the Canadian Embassy in Switzerland but no solution can be presented to me. I thought the PR will make things easier (and I worked hard and a long time on it to get it) but it seems it made it all just more complicated. Is there anyway you can help me?
You can attempt to submit the application before you travel, but we don’t know whether or not it will be accepted.
