Once I get my PR card along with SIN and health insurance am planning to return to work in middle east for sometime and settle in Canada after 2 year to indefinitely.

How long it will take to get my PR card, SIN and Health Insurance?

My wife is planning to stay for extended days till we receive all the 3?

Will I get the child benefits and tax benefits for the first two years outside Canada?

Should I need to file income tax returns?

I understand there is no income tax if I spend 183 days outside Canada?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

Regarding your question,


How long it will take to get my PR card, SIN and Health Insurance?


You can find timeline listings on the IRCC website, Service Canada and ServiceOntario website.

Specifically regarding the SIN, if you apply in person and everything is in order, you will get your SIN during your visit and you will not need to part with your documents.

Regarding your question,

My wife is planning to stay for extended days till we receive all the 3?


With respect to OHIP, there is a three-month waiting period for your OHIP coverage.

The waiting period begins on the date you establish residence in Ontario. You may also be required to be present in Ontario for 153 days of the first 183 days immediately following the date residence is established in Ontario (you cannot be absent for more than 30 days during the first 6 months of residence).

Regarding your question,

Will I get the child benefits and tax benefits for the first two years outside Canada?


You can find some information regarding eligibility requirements on the Government of Canada website in the Canada child benefit - Before you apply section.


Regarding your questions,

Should I need to file income tax returns? I understand there is no income tax if I spend 183 days outside Canada?




You can find some information in our Settlement.Org Do I have to file a tax return? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
