I have a CoPR expiring in Feb 2020 and I can travel to Canada for a couple of days only to apply for a PR card before CoPR expires.
- Do the immigration officers bother about my return date (as to knowing that PR processing can take up to 6 weeks, why am I leaving so soon without a PR card)?
- The address I would give for PR card delivery will obviously a friend's, do officers bother?
- I have heard its not allowed for me to have my PR card couriered from that friend to me in India, is it because PR travel document is the official way to go? I read in some blogs that they can seize the PR card at borders even?
- If PR travel document is the way to go, can I use that to go back to Canada and then collect my PR card from my friend, I mean will the PR card still be valid even if I used a PR travel document the second time?
I saw a similar question: https://travel.stackexchange.com/questions/102190/returning-to-canada-as-a-pr-without-a-card but that is asking for multiple re-entries whereas my question is to plan travel so as to get hold of the PR card. That way I can use that next year to actually move while I find job there.
