About PR Card Renewal

Posted in PR Card Renewal

Permanent residence of Canada is something that is sought by many people all around the world. The status entitles you to receive lucrative benefits, not only for you but also for your family. In order to establish a safe and secure future for their family, many individuals put a lot of effort and investment to immigrate to Canada. And this proves to be a profitable deal. Canada is a place that offers endless employment opportunities for everyone.

What is a PR Card?

When you are awarded the permanent residence of Canada, you are given a PR card. This is the proof that you are now a permanent resident of Canada and you can enjoy almost same benefits as the Canadian citizens do. With this card, you can travel as you wish and return back to Canada without any problems. If you are planning to immigrate to Canada and settle here permanently, then PR card is something of prime importance to you. As long as you have a valid PR card, you can stay in Canada for as long as wish and you can move in and out of the country, without any trouble.

What is the Validity of a PR Card?

The PR card is valid of five years. Permanent residents are different from Canadian citizens in that they still have some obligations that they must meet in order to continue their stay in Canada. Based on these requirements, the government of Canada decides whether or not to extend the permissibility of stay of the applicant. Though, you enjoy almost the same benefits as a Canadian citizen, you must meet these obligations and must renew your PR card every five years.

My PR Card has Expired. How Can I Renew it?

It is important to note that you must apply for the renewal of your PR card, at least six months before the validity date. This is to ensure that there is a margin, in case there are processing delays. If you are unable to apply on time and your PR card expires, you can be in trouble. If your PR card expires while you are travelling outside Canada, you won't be allowed entry into the country. Therefore, it is very important that you file your PR renewal application at least six months before its expiry date.

If your PR card is about to expire and you are considering about renewing it, these are the steps that you need to follow:

Step1: Contact us!

We will assess your situation and inform you of the documents needed to file a successful application.

Step2: Arrange Supporting Documents

A detailed customized list of documents will be send to you. These supporting documents are needed to give you the best possible chance of success. The documents prove that you have met all the requirements as a permanent residence and are therefore eligible for a renewal. If you do not meet the requirements, these documents will inform the officer why you do not and why the officer should still grant you the PR card renewal. This is a very important part of the application.  Many people who fail to submit proper evidence in support get their application refused.

Step3: Pay the Government Fees

You need to pay the fees for your PR card renewal. There is a form available that you must fill and attach with your application. This form holds the information for the successful payment of fees.

Step 4: Submit the Documents

Once we have all the completed documents we will prepare a thorough submission to the officer. This is your story to the officer. We will inform the officer why they should approve your application. Once we have completed the submission we will file your application to the immigration office.

Caution: Preparing a PR card renewal application is a complex matter!

It may seem that it is quite an easy method to prepare your application and submit to the immigration office, but there are some inherent complexities.

You must consult an expert Canadian immigration representative if you are skeptical about your case.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
