    Permanent Resident Renewal Timeline 2018

    FYI for everyone. Just wanted to mention that the only potential challenge with my application was a very long travel log (100+ trips), so I was surprised that the step 3 to step 4 status change happened in what appears to be the same window as everyone else.

    Very frequent traveler, US citizen/current resident married to Canadian

    There is a lot of great info on this forum, but I couldn't find any posts about my current situation. I am [fairly] newly married to a Canadian (8 months). My job requires weekly travel to my US work location (flights I'd be doing even if being in the US). I have been using my NEXUS card for...
