    I’m in a very frustrating situation and I would really appreciate your help.
    I am a US green card holder with China passport and I didn’t need a visa to enter Canada as a visitor in December last year. My husband has filled outside Canada spouse sponsoring to get my Canada PR in September last year. To my knowledge I can stay here for up to 180 days, that’s why when we mailed my passport to the CIC for my PR visa in April this year, we didn’t think about we need to extend my visa to stay. But here is the frustrating part, they lost the mail with my passport when the CIC mail the landing package back to me.
    Now I’m overstayed like a month and I can’t even file an extension bcuz my passport is lost in the process.
    What would you recommend for my situation? Does my case fits the implied status to stay?
    Thank you

      Hello Farrah,

      Thank you for your inquiry. I can’t imagine the hardship and frustration/anxiety you must be facing right now, but we have handled many cases almost identical to yours in the past…which makes me feel very confident that we can help you out. I would require some more information from you to be able to advise you correctly, and needless to say, this is not an issue that can be discussed/resolved in a blog post. Kindly complete this form for me so that I can obtain the details I need to advise you accordingly. Once it is submitted back to us, I will review it and contact you so that we can correct this issue of your status and passport. MF

    Hello Chantelle,

    Thank you for your post. It is nearly impossible for me to advise you on this matter as I do not have the background or complete information on your boyfriend’s situation. Please email me at with more information such as when did he apply? Why did he seek refuge here in Canada? Did he have an attorney or did he represent himself? How long did he reside in Canada? Was he given a PRRA prior to exiting the country? Basically any information pertaining to his Refugee status here in Canada would be helpful for me to accurately advise you on what options you have available to you. MF

    My boyfriend was a refugee and was sent back to St.Vicent being a refugee.
    I want him back home, what are his options? And how do we proceed with this situation?

Customer Reviews

Completely smooth process. Rania did a great job in my Canada work permit. The team is absolutely competent and knowledgeable. Alicea was so amazing and was able to answer any of my questions immediately. I had peace of mind throughout the application. I would recommend them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
