    First, you need to enter US, but not everyone has US visa I’m from a country that visitors only need eta to come to Canada. All they have to do is apply before the flight then can stay in Canada for 6 months, even better, it’s multiple entries for 5 years! I don’t understand why the...

    PR card renewal now 299 days..

    After being a PR for many years, I always have a feeling that Canada government, or IRCC don’t like PR to travel/ study/ working abroad. All they want a PR to do is to “sit still” in Canada. I think this time the 299 days processing time says it all. From 2X days to 1XX days can be considered...

    Sent in PR renewal form but forgot to sign it

    Really? Haven’t heard about this before! U mean we’ll have trouble when we’re back to Canada, at PoE? Or that will be impact to the PR card renewal application?

    Details of secondary review

    After reading your informative post, I GUESS this is the reason my last application was referred to SR. So, does it mean it’s better not to travel after submitted the application, until I’ve got the new card? Even though I travel with a valid PRC and come back before it expired?

    PR renewal- question #19, address history

    Thanks a lot! Just curious, since you said I consider “reside” there, provided that my travel history is accurate and I have +1000 RO, does it mean my application could have high chance to get to non-routine processing? I had painful Secondary Review last time and just want to prepare for the...

    I travel overseas to visit my parents every year and stay with them for around 1 to the longest 5 months. Do I have to include their home address even though it’s not my primary address?

    IELTS General or CELPIP-LS

    Just want to double check with you guys, for the English test for citizenship application, IRCC do accept CELPIP-LS, and IELTS or CELPIP General is not a must right? It's because the lady from one of the immigration & community service centre advised me to take the IELTS as the English proof...

    Secondary Review Petition

    Dear all, now I can really feel how inhuman IRCC towards us, the applicants under secondary review. I know I'm considering lucky that I'm able to "escape" from 2nd review by applying urgent processing. It seems because of this reason, I have to pick up the card in person and they scheduled me...
