Looking for urgent advice! I only just got found out about the "visiting Canada with an expired PR" hornets nest! I was a minor when I lived briefly in Canada and had a permanent residency card. It expired years ago and I have been living in Germany since 2011, where I was born and from where I have my passport. I plan to visit Canada tomorrow and was about to apply for an eTA. Only now, someone just mentioned that my expired PR card (which I don't even have anymore) doesn't mean I am no longer a PR and that I have to officially renounce it before I can enter Canada again?! I don't have time to renounce my card before I leave... but in the eTA I have to state if I've ever help a permit before. If I say I have but have not renounced the PR yet, will i be denied entry? If I apply for the renouncing and can prove I've applied (and have an eTA) would that work? Or could I simply say that I haven't held a permit in the eTA form? I have a new passport.... will it pop up for them anyway? I honestly just want to visit Canada for 4 weeks and continue living in Germany. I wish I had found out about the renouncing earlier, my parents told me that the residency expires when the card does so i never thought twice about it. Obviously that was very wrong and now I'm in quite a scary situation. any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
