Hi

I and my wife received our COPR recently. We live in two different countries now and the COPRs were issued by IRCC in our respective countries. All the information is entered accurately except that the country of residence is reversed for us in the personal details; my COPR bears my wife's country of residence and vice versa.

Can we land with this COPR and make amendments later to get a 'verification of status' (VOS) applying from within Canada as PR?

I appreciate clarification in this regard.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us. We understand your concern, and appreciate your interest in this kind of information.

It may be best for you to contact IRCC directly by phone (1-888-242-2100) or through using their web form to make a case-specific inquiry about resolving this error. Whether or not you will be granted entry will be up to the CBSA officer. There are a number of reasons you can be found inadmissible, denied a visa or refused entry to Canada. If you are planning on travelling soon, you may also wish to consult a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer for advice regarding your situation.

We 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.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team
