Customer: Hi DebraJust creating new thread for this
My wife is having a good job in US and her PR will expire in march 2022. The plan is that she will keep her job and sometimes travel to Canada to meet me. We contacted immigration lawyer sometime back and he said once she reaches March 2020 mark it will be difficult for her to travel to Canada as CBP officer will think she won't be able to make to her 2 year residency mark. The best thing, in that case, will be to surrender her PR voluntarily and apply for visiting visa to canada. Also since I will be maintaining my PR status by having Canada job and living in Canada I can sponsor her for PR again. Please let me know what you think? is it true or what kind of issue we can face? Also what are the timelines when can sponsor her?PS: I was the primary applicant when we applied for Canadian PR. Secondly why my wife can;t move to canada is since she is a Research scientist in Top University and her US PR in EB1 is approved which may take 3-4 years to come. I don't want to loose the Canadian PR and want to be complete the citizenship requirement for Canada.

Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Yes that is all accurate.

If she cannot meet the residency requirements they will like stop letting her in when it looks like she cannot and then she may not be able to enter or at least not easily and at some point she may be stopped.

So she can give up her PR status, enter as a visitor when she likes and you can sponsor her when she is ready to move to Canada.

Customer
Thanks.
1) Is their any timelines when I can start the process of sponsoring her like 1 year after I have completed my residency etc?
2) How much time it takes after you file the paperwork she can get PR? Won't CBP ask why is she applying again?
3) is it easy to get the visitor visa and how much time can she stay on that? We want, when she comes to Canada she stays for 2 weeks max due to her work in US
4) My daughter is US citizen how much time can US citizen stay in canada without any visa?

1) You don't have to wait but if she isn't able to come for a while it wouldn't make sense to start too early.

2) A year. No it will be clear she couldn't move and now she can.

3) It is easy so long as she can show strong ties to back home. The more she comes and goes the easier it will be. She can stay for up to 6 months most of the time.

4) Usually six months.

I have to run out for a while but will check back as soon as I return.
