PR Card Renewal

PR Card Renewal

Canadian Permanent Residents must possess a valid Permanent Resident Card (PR card) or Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) when returning to Canada through commercial carriers like planes, buses, trains, or boats. However, entry without a valid PR card is allowed via the land border in a private vehicle or at an airport using a private plane. The Permanent Resident Card (PR card) is typically issued for five years, though in certain cases, it may be issued for one year. Its validity extends until the expiration date listed on the card. In instances where the PR card is not available before leaving Canada or when outside Canada without a valid PR card, individuals are required to apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD).

Loss of PR status

The loss of permanent residence status is not an automatic process; it necessitates a determination by an immigration officer. If no officer concludes that the permanent resident status is lost, the individual remains a permanent resident. This holds particular significance for individuals with an expired PR card who still intend to enter Canada.
