Keep These Points In Mind
Normally it is all right for permanent residents to travel outside of Canada. However, permanent residents need to remember the following points:
- You have to follow your residency obligations, or you could lose your permanent residence status. Even day trips over the border to the United States of America can affect your residency obligations.
- Too much time outside of Canada can cause you to lose your status.
- If you are a permanent resident who has been charged with a crime, it’s important that you take action right away to protect your immigration status.
