Hi everyone, I had a question I was hoping somebody could offer some advice on.

I recently recieved my COPR (finally). The expiry date of the visa is 22nd December 2019, so I must arrive in Canada before that date.

I strongly wish to be able to spend Christmas this year with my family in Ireland as we recently lost a very close family member and so it is quite important. Does anyone here have any knowledge on if I would be able to arrive in Canada before December 22nd and leave again to return to Ireland for a week over the Christmas period? Or is it a case that once I land in Canada I cannot travel for a specific amount of time?

Any insights are much appreciated.

Congratulations on your COPR and sincere condolences on the passing of your family member. Hoping you do indeed get to enjoy a Christmas with your family in Canada, if a bittersweet one.

From what I understand (I'm no expert), you will need to wait about 45 days to get your PR card after you've entered Canada. If you need to travel you can indeed go ahead, this has no bearing on the fact that you're a PR and can re-enter Canada as your right. However while abroad in Ireland, you would need to apply for a Permanent Residence Travel Document (PRTD) which will allow you to re-enter Canada in lieu of your PR card. I'm not too sure how long this takes to get but I think it's a couple of weeks, and I understand you can only apply for it while abroad, so you may need to plan accordingly.

Still waiting for the CoPR to come in. They informed me (after I wrote them via a webform) on Sept 10th that I would receive my CoPR shortly. They sure have a weird concept of the term "shortly". All the same, I booked my tickets for December. Gotta manifest it!
