Hello,
I got PR in year 2003. Due to certain reasons was not able to maintain PR. In July 2019 I applied for Temporary Resident VISA for CANADA.

Visa officer, saying that since U R permanent resident of Canada, we cannot issue U temporary visa. He gave me options to either renounce PR or reapply or leave both.

As I did not met resident obligations in last 16years so I opted Renouncing of my PR and Visa Officer issued me multi entry Temporary Resident Visa till expiry of my passport ie till 2021. I M in Canada these days.

My question now is,

Can I reapply or request Visa Officer to reconsider my case of PR which I renounced 2months ago.

1. No, it is too late, you were given the opportunity to apply for a PRTD, and if refused, be given appeal rights. You choose to renounce your PR status.
2. You would have to apply and qualify again for PR.

I returned to Canada on October 2019, a few days earlier of my PR expiry. my question is what is my legal status now, I did not inform CIC about my marital status. How can I inform them, plz guide.
