Hi Guys

I know it is not required but I submitted original translation of my passport stamps in my citizenship application. I have only have copies of translation.

I need your suggestions about the interview, What happen if I am required to take my translations again during the interview? cause I have only black/white copies of the translations..

Thank you

I am doing my renewal of PR card.
I know all of my travel dates within 5 years for section 21 -Travel History.
I also didn't go outside of Canada more than 1095 days.

My question/concern:
Do I need to provide the passport for the all the stamped pages as well as an evidence or proof of absence from Canada?

I didn't receive any stamps from Canada and some stamps are not received from my home country (It depends on officers sometimes they do/don't)
Also, some stamps are not in English. If I don't have to submit, I prefer not so I don't need to provide translation and get certified etc...

I got a bit worried as I was searching on internet, some people are saying "must provide all the pages of passport or stamped pages..."

MM5444 Section E - I have accepted as YES for IRCC to access my history of entries in to Canada with CBSA to proof my Section C - Travel History to proof my last five years of absences. I am confused now as I have noticed / read many people are saying and wondering on the internet that we all must provide ALL of the pages of the valid passport copies and/or just the arrival / departure stamps. Some people even say that we need all copies with certified true copy stamp and translation if not English etc..I have no stamps received nothing from Canada or home country to proof as evidence for my last 5 years trip.

I answered YES for the E. Consent to disclose information and I gave IRCC a permission that they can review my history of entries with CBSA would be efficient enough and best way to proof of my absence of Canada however many people say it's not enough so I wanted to clarify this before submitting my application to avoid wasting their time and my time to get my applications to be returned many months later...

Hope someone know the real answer to this, please!

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

The Canadian Border Service Agency can conduct a travel history report. “A Travel History Report is a record of a traveller's entries, exits or both into Canada.”

According to the CBSA:
If you are renewing or applying for a Permanent Resident Card you do not need to request your Traveller History Report from the CBSA. Checking "Yes" on page 3, Question 23 (section E) of the application form allows IRCC to collect the report on your behalf.


We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.


Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
