Hello,

I am a permanent resident and I have a 3 year old daughter who is a Canadian citizen. We have to travel in the next 4-5 weeks outside of Canada and I do not have a permanent resident card. I read about the PRtravel document and I wanted to know what kind of risk I am taking by relying on getting that travel document in order to enter Canada at the end of our journey and also would you have any idea what the approx processing time is for those documents.



Thank you

Hello,
Here is the most probable scenario. You would probably return to Canada as a visitor not as a permanent resident or landing immigrant.
The visa officer will determine how you are entering Canada. You would probably be let in as a visitor. However, if you decide to apply for permanent residence card from within Canada , your application would not be accepted as you do not meet the physical presence requirement. There are exceptions to the 730 days physical presence requirements. Immigration officers will let you know their decision.

Hello,

My mother lived in Canada for over 10 years, then had to go back to Rwanda because my grandmother was dying and she went for the funeral but her PR card had expired. She left in November of 2015 and I was wondering what she would need to be able to come back to canada
