P.R. Card Renewals on Exceptional Grounds
In some cases, it may be possible to renew your Permanent Resident (PR) card on exceptional grounds, even if you do not meet the residency requirements. This option is available in situations where you were unable to meet the residency requirements due to circumstances beyond your control, such as medical issues, family emergencies, or employment outside Canada.
To apply for a PR card renewal on exceptional grounds, you will need to provide a written explanation of the circumstances that prevented you from meeting the residency requirements. You will also need to provide supporting documents to back up your claim, such as medical records, proof of employment, or documentation related to family emergencies.
The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will assess your application on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the specific circumstances of your situation. If the IRCC determines that your reasons for not meeting the residency requirements are valid and exceptional, they may grant you a PR card renewal for a further five years.
It is important to note that applying for a PR card renewal on exceptional grounds can be a complex process, and the outcome is not guaranteed. Seeking the assistance of an experienced immigration consultant can help you navigate the process and improve your chances of success.
In summary, renewing your PR card on exceptional grounds is possible in certain situations where you were unable to meet the residency requirements due to circumstances beyond your control. However, it's essential to provide strong supporting documents and seek our professional assistance to increase your chances of success.
