Any Cubans here trying to sponsor parents???? I really really need help. My parents are here at the moment, my father's passport as well as his Canadian visitor visa will expire march 25, 2020, just a few months away. Canadian embassy in Cuba is closed, the closest for us to go will be in Mexico, and they will need a visa to enter that country. All of that takes a lot of time, plus his passport/ visa about to expired. Any ideas of what to do???

Apply for visa to Mexico in advance as soon as possible. Ask Goverment if there is a chance to extend your actual Canada visa, or apply for Supervisa for Father to stay

I would hurry and apply for a visitor visa form Mexico ASAP, while your in those 6 months timeframe cause the airlines will let you fly still. At least you have one field cover. Because passports applications take time. We had to go to the USA to renovate passports it took around 4-6 weeks to get them back. In the meantime apply for an extension in Canada, or a Supervisa they don’t need to leave Canada for that, but once you receive the Supervisa they will need to leave Canada and re enter to get it stamped..
Hope this helps.

Mexico does not require a visa if the person has a valid Canadian visa.

You must have paid biometrics fees for both. Did they refund the biometric fees for your mom as its not required for her??
For my case, I haven't received any refund yet. IRCC did say it's currently exempted so I think it might be still required later.

I know and it’s good, but by the time we receive the biometrics request it will be short time for the passport and Canadian visa to expire, I’m not sure if Mexico will allow him to travel having the passport and visa expiring in a short time. Some countries don’t allow you to travel if your passport will expire within 6 months.

"House hold registery" is for residents of PRC.
If your parents never lived in China, then they do not need that.
Thanks for educating me...

Can you please further elaborate why House hold registry is required for PGP from residents of PRC...
