1. If she is allowed in without being reported (this is highly likely), then she just has to stay in Canada till she has met RO and then apply for renewal. Do not apply for renewal unless you are certain that she meets RO. The only real chance of being reported happens when you interact with CBSA/IRCC in some way - either at the border, or when you apply for PR renewal.Hello mate,
Thank you for the quick response. I’ve couple of more doubts on the first point that you have mentioned.
1) As mentioned earlier this is her first 5 year term on PR status. So if she travels in august/ September(hoping vaccine will be available by then, as we have a toddler travelling with her) will she be eligible for renewal if she stays longer after she comes back here( with out being reported)
2) As we still have lockdown in India and Canada both , she will not be able to travel before June. She actually planned to travel in February itself but due to Corona she had to stay back( we cancelled the ticket twice taking toddler’s safety into consideration)
2. Yeah, June is fine. As others have said, the sooner she can travel the better. Waiting for a vaccine is not a good idea since there's absolutely no real information on when or whether a vaccine is going to happen. Best to fly back when the flights open and then you don't need to stress about RO/PR. I understand your thought process - as it happens, I'm stuck in India right now with a toddler myself. I have no RO (already stayed more than 850 days in my first five years) issues so I could stay in India till 2022 if I wanted, but I'm still going to fly back as soon as commercial travel reopens. India isn't all that safe to be in either.
