Subject: PR- Card issue
  Hi,

I am currently in the US on h1b and would be going to canada to land
and would like to return within a week, the thing is that I don´t have any friend whose address I can provide to immigration official to mail my pr card. Please suggest what options do I have ? has anyone been in my situation ?

Any help is appreciated..
Thanks,
Arun

I just landed yesterday, and provided an address of a friend. It was rejected. The IO decided (correctly) that it wasn´t our new permanent home and gave us a form to complete when we do have a permanent Canadian address for our PR cards. Until then, we have our official numbers in our passports and can use that. Don´t worry if you don´t have one; obviously it isn´t needed. Although, customs did require one; I´m not sure why. Good luck!

Hi wannabecanadia,

I don´t understand, how could the address get rejected, most of the people on this form have used their friends´s addresses´ to get PR. If some more people throw some light on this issue.

Thanks,
Arun

Arun: I know, it was very strange. I think the IO was just making the point that the PR card and SIN aren´t really necessary until you actually live there. We have our numbers, and are offically permanent residents (and we have physical proof, on our COPRs). IOs do have the right to not accept addresses etc, and it is true that we had no intention of living at the address we provided. Still, like you, I´d never heard of anyone having problems with it.

My point for you, however, since you don´t have an address to supply, is not to worry. Apparently you don´t need one right away, if you are planning to return to the US for awhile anyway before moving. You will get a form to complete for the card when you do have a permanent, Canadian address(there was a 180 day limit, otherwise you have to pay $50 for processing). My advice is to go ahead and land, even without an address. Best of luck! :)
