Could you please tell me what I need to do for Landing and get the entrance stamp while my parents are in Vancouver (Visitor) without going out?

I know that there was a topic regarding this topic; however, I can't find it.
I think you have to go USA boarder and back back after landing procedure.

Received passport request by email. We have 30 days to submit PP together.
But the problem is Dad is back home and Mom is here in Canada. How do ni request them to extend PP submission to 60 days.
Anyone gone thru similar situation

I am still waiting for a peep from CIC after submitting PCC & first medical in late December 2016.

Had I gotten the PP request, I would be wanting to get it done as soon as possible without requesting an extension... (but that's just me :) )

We received the passport and COPR from Ottawa office yesterday. I called to book an appointment with Etobicoke office and IRCC agent told me that we cannot land to local IRCC office because my parents cannot stay more than 6 months on super visa and they already crossed 6 months. My parents are here on super visa from last July 2017. This is the third time they are visiting me. As per IRCC agent, they can stay in Canada till 2 year on first visit only, after that it's 6 months only. I was not aware about this. Is this true?

She told me apply for restoration or do flagpole or visit home country and come back. I am planning for flagpole tomorrow morning but worrying about parents expired status. Anyone went though this type of condition?

I am not too sure however when your parents came to Canada for first time on supervisa, what does the entry stamp show? any expiry date or something or was the stamp blank without date of exit? how long did your parents stay when they came first time on supervisa? When your parents came in july 2017, what did the entry stamp state like was it just the stamp without exit date or what?

This is what I have found:

First time they stayed with me for 8 months, second time 20 months and this is the third time. They stamped every time on passport but no expiry date on stamp. It was blank stamp of arrival.

Well, as per the link, it states about initial year 2 years of entry however not sure about later.
Anyway, if this has been an issue, your parents wouldn't have been allowed entry into Canada on 3rd visit.
I think you might have mentioned your parents stay in Canada in the application? Also, cic must have seen stamps on the passports before issuing visas. I hope it would be fine. Let's hear from someone who has a similar experience.

Last week, we were asked to submit form IMM5562 by CPC-O. Yesterday, we received prearrival services email from CPC-O. Then today, ecas was Decision Made.

How long does it take to receive PPR usually after DM?

My parent's medical will expire March 4, 2018. We are really excited :)
Hi,
Just want to ask if you submitted that form via email or uploaded on mycic account, because there's no email account to reply . I got the same letter on mycic account asking for my mother's IMM5562 not my father 's and he is principal applicant.
