To be able to enter Canada, you are required to present an authentic travel document. While visitors may require an approved visa to enter Canada, Canadian permanent residents are allowed to use their permanent resident card (PR card). Nevertheless, if a Canadian permanent resident don’t have an active permanent resident card, but wishes to enter Canada, then such person will be required to apply for a permanent resident travel document (PRTD). Also note that the PRTD (permanent resident travel document) allows permanent residents to enter just once into Canada so they can obtain a replacement for their permanent residence card. The permanent resident travel document is very important because permanent resident cards can only be renewed from inside Canada.
Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) Eligibility
To be eligible to apply for the permanent resident travel document, you must meet the following criteria:
- They must be Canadian permanent resident;
- They presently don’t have authentic permanent residence card that shows their permanent residence status;
- They’re presently outside Canada, and;
- They desire to return to Canada either by airplane, train, boat, or bus.
After submitting your PRTD application, a visa officer will review your application to ensure you meet every various requirements. If an applicant is unable to meet their residency obligations, their Canadian permanent resident status may be under jeopardy. Also note that, foreigners from countries that require visa to enter Canada that have received their COPR (Confirmation Of Permanent Residence) can be issued a travel visa with their COPR. These particular travel visa allows them to access the Port Of Entry (POE) in Canada where they’ll start the process of getting their permanent resident card. It wouldn’t be necessary for permanent residents who are newly confirmed to apply for the permanent resident travel document. This is because the travel visa mentioned above will be issued to those immigrants that require it.
