Hello everyone, My first post on this forum. Let me first take you through the timeline: Feb 4th 2019: Application submitted through Express Entry - Wife not pregnant Mar 18th 2019: Passed the Medical Exam - Wife not pregnant Nov 4th 2019: I received an email (read for visa) asking for passport and photographs - Wife pregnant 32 weeks Nov 25th 2019: Application approved, COPR issued (Expiry Date: 4th Feb 2020) - Wife pregnant 35 weeks Current Situation: Both my wife and I stay in USA and have applied from here. Now my wife's due date is between Dec 16-22. I am yet to receive my COPR (in mail). I have not declared my wife's pregnancy as there was no birth or adoption of child as asked in PPR email. Plausible options: 1. I receive my COPR in this week and we travel by Monday in coming week, do the landing and come back by Tuesday in coming week Pros: Our landing will be complete and we will receive our PR card in next couple of months. Also my wife's passport is expiring in May next year, so there will be no hassle of passport change etc. in the application process Cons: Traveling in 36th week is not suggested and even airlines would not let us fly. We can drive/go by bus but that would put my wife's child birth in jeopardy. I have also read on this platform that sponsoring a child on your PR takes 6 months to 1 year time. 2. We give birth to our child in US, then we add him to existing application by declaring to CIC that my wife is 35/36 weeks pregnant after we recieve our COPR. Pros: No health issues, adding a newborn to existing application would take less time as compared to sponsorship. Cons: a. COPR might expire as it would be difficult to get birth certificate, passport, proof of funds (if applicable), medical of newborn etc. b. Our medical might expire which might not get extension c. My wife's passport is expiring so that would create issues. Please suggest what should be done?
