Permanent Resident (PR) Card – Application and Renewals
A Permanent Resident card is an identity document issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The card proves you are a permanent resident when you return to Canada.
On the initial entry for a new permanent resident, you don’t need to apply for a PR card. It will be sent to the Canadian mailing address provided by you. You have 180 days after entering Canada to provide this address.
The PR card needs to be valid to return to Canada by plane, train, bus or boat. It will not be issued outside of Canada. However, if a permanent resident is outside Canada without a PR card, apply for a temporary travel document to enter Canada.
Eligibility for PR Card are:
- Must be a permanent resident and
- Submit your application in Canada.
To maintain permanent resident status, you must reside in Canada for 730 days during the last 5 years.
The Permanent Resident card gets revoked when a person ceases to be a permanent resident.
