The Permanent Resident (PR) Card is a required document for permanent residents, including children who go abroad and then return to Canada by any commercial carrier (plane, train, boat or bus). When you are returning to Canada, you will be asked to present the Permanent Resident Card before you board the carrier or bus that will take you back to Canada. Also, you will need to show your PR Card to the Immigration Officer at the Canadian port of entry to prove your permanent resident status. It is therefore imperative to have your PR Card in hand prior to leaving Canada.
If you are outside Canada and you do not have a valid Permanent Resident Card to return to Canada you will need to obtain a travel document from a Canadian visa office. JDS Immigration ltd. provides assistance in obtaining a PR Card for our clients.
To be eligible for a PR Card, you must:
be a permanent resident of Canada
be physically present in Canada
not be under an effective removal order
not be a Canadian citizen or a registered Indian under the Indian Act.
Our company assists clients who need to obtain their PR Cards on an urgent basis. In order for a government official to recognize the urgency of your case, the reasons must be compelling and therefore if you need to travel right away, it is recommended that you speak to one of JDS Immigration Ltd. representatives with respect to the urgency of your case.
Finally, a certified immigration consultant from our company will be your representative from beginning to end and will deal with the government on your behalf.
