hello,

was going through my documents and found out that my old passport has no exit stamp when i went for vacation last November. I only have an arrival stamped in the Philippines.  Will this be a problem, because CIC requires most recent entry and exit stamps on passport? What should I do? Help pls?  Thanks

Canada does not stamp passport when you leave, only when you enter. You can show your arrival stamp in the Philippines.

job-seeker! you gave me big relief!! thanks a lot! Speaking of entry stamp, muntik na akong hindi rin malagyan ng stamp when i went back here. Nakaalis na ako sa window ng immigration officer, and upon transferring my luggages sa conveyor, i thought i should checked my passport, and there i found out that the officer did not stamp my passport. I couldnt go  back to the same window, so I asked a fellow filipino who is working there and he showed me the other immigration office. And there I asked them to put an entry stamp, the officer said sometimes they forgot to do that. So for those who are going to have a vacation, check your passports, kasi like us na mag-aapply for PR, we need that recent entry stamp.

Thanks a bunch again job-seeker!!

hi. Im from Manila too. I went to Canada (first time) last December 2009 for 2 weeks of vacation. My existing visa is a travel visa. yes, I have the same experience as you. The immigration officer didn't stamp my passport when I left canada so I got worried too when I saw my passport when I got home.

The stamp on arrival in Manila would be your proof that you left Canada. Canada does not stamp departure dates.
