How to Renew Your PR Card 2019

Renew your PR card 2019

Did you know that you are responsible for renewing your Canadian permanent resident card every five years before it expires? This means that you must take the necessary action to renew your PR card well before it expires. Citizenship and Immigration Canada recommends that you apply to renew your card at least six months before it expires, because applications can take at least three months to be fully processed.

Renewing your permanent resident card is not necessarily a simple process, because you need to make sure everything is done properly to avoid running into serious problems. In other words, renewing your permanent resident card is not just about filling out some forms, there is a lot more required.

Steps to renewing your permanent resident card in Canada

1. Complete the application to renew your permanent resident card fully without missing any spaces or sections.

2. Ensure that you have passport photos taken for your application, and ensure that they meet the requirements for your permanent resident card application.

3. Compile the necessary supporting documents for your application, which will include proof that you have met the residency obligation for permanent resident status.

4. Pay your processing fee, which is 50$. You need to include the receipt for the processing fee in your application package.
5. Have your application forms and application package reviewed by a licensed immigration lawyer or attorney. This will ensure that all of your supporting documentation is ready for review by an immigration lawyer and that there are no errors or omissions on your application.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
