I received my ITA in March and submitted my application with all necessary material in early May. I would really like to attend my sister’s wedding which will be held overseas in early October. So if I choose to attend, it’s quite likely that I’ll be asked to turn in my passport for a Canadian PR visa stamp when I’m overseas. And I should add that I’ll need to get a new H1b stamp when I’m overseas in October in order to be able to return to the US. How lenient is CIC towards an extension of submitting passports for a visa stamp?
Before, Anshul has answered a similar inquiry, which I couldn’t appreciate enough. If more folks who have received their Canadian PR cards or visa stamps could share your experience, that would be great. Thanks!
