Hi
My pr expires in March 2015. Ill complete 730 days in december, and plan on travelling after that.

However, ill not return till april 2015, so id like to apply for my pr renewal on an urgent basis by october so i have it with me before i leave. Can i do that or do i have to wait until i complete 730 days to apply?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to the Applying for a Permanent Resident Card (PR Card) - Initial application, replacement or renewal (IMM 5445) - Guide,



Do not apply for a renewal of your current PR card if it is still valid for more than six (6) months (180 days), unless it is due to a legal name change. Otherwise, your application will be returned.


You may want to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for some additional information.

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.
