Hi,

We are also planning for a short landing in Vancouver, but the catch is my wife is having medical surveillance 2.02!
Hence planning to do medical after we return to Canada permanently in 6 months..

QUESTIONS:

1. Can I ask my friend to courier our PR cards to my home country through DHL courier?

2. Can we report to Public health authority about our short stay and postponing medical surveillance?

3.Do I need to inform about medical surveillance delay to immigration officer while retuning to home country after shot stay?

Kindly clarify..


Regards,
Sammu

Hello Sammu,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Regarding your first question,

1. Can I ask my friend to courier our PR cards to my home country through DHL courier?


Some of our users have also reported that when their PR card was sent to their Canadian address after they had left, they were able to have a trustworthy family member or friend send it to them via a secure method outside of Canada.

However, it is important to note that if you are outside Canada and you would like your friend or family member to send it to you, it is important that you are aware of therisks of it being misplaced or possibly seized.

Regarding your additional questions,

2. Can we report to Public health authority about our short stay and postponing medical surveillance?

3.Do I need to inform about medical surveillance delay to immigration officer while retuning to home country after shot stay?


You can find details related to this process on the CIC Website in the Medical Surveillance section.

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.

<<<<<UPDATE AFTER LANDING>>>>

We have landed smoothly. Only 2 hrs procedure.
Handed over medical surveillance docs to CIC immigration officer. He stamped and returned one original & another one he sent to Health authority.

Later we do got email from CIC after landing, to notify our address to health authority. We emailed it to health authority. Few days later we called them, we have informed that need to wait till we get letter regarding Medical. still we are waiting...

After short landing we came back to our home country. Our PR cards processed after 45 days and which was send it to our friends address in Canada. Our friend then post us through Canada Post.

We have received our PR successfully..


Regards,
Sammu
