My PRC is waiting for renewal for 5 months, can I leave Canada and wait abroad?


New Member
Currently, my PRC renewal is under review for the past 5 months, but I need to travel to my country for ugent matters. While I´m abroad if my PRC renewal is approved, will I have problem to travel back to Canada? Should the Canadian Embassy in my country take into account that my PRC has been granted in order to facilitate the issue of a PRTD?

So if your Card is approved while you're away, you can't use it unless you possess it. Having someone send it to you while you're overseas entails risk and is not recommended. a PRTD application will likely take longer than the standard 2-3 weeks because, presumably, they will be reviewing the same details currently being reviewed for your Card renewal.
