Subject: Voluntarily Relinquishing your PR card
Has anyone ever had the experience of voluntarily renouncing his/her PR rights filling an IMM 5539 B? If so how did the Visa Agents react? Were they indifferent or did they offer any advice?

Federal officers are not there to question your decisions in life that is your problem. They will process your application applying the existing regulations and take it from there.

Well, you see, the law is a bit tough with this 2 years of presence over each period of 5 years. Should you fail to meet the 2 years obligation not only do you lose your PR status but on top of it you are then considered as some sort of criminal because you failed to "abide by the law" which of course makes you inadmissible for entry (Were the MPs all drunk when they wrote the law or what??)Soooooo, for people who do love Canada and who would like to come back every now and then it may make sense to relinquish their PR cards (not to mention those who may have an interest to do it for fiscal reasons).

To Anonymous, who "did it and landed again 4 weeks later":

Hi, this is an old thread, but I hope you get this message. What process did you follow to relinquish your PR status? I lived in Canada as a PR from 2000 to 2002, and now live and work in Washington DC area with a US PR status. I haven´t visited Canada in last 4 years. I have the long form PR from Canada, which I have not surrendered.

On other forums, I have seen different responses like: 1. Send your PR card with a letter to Ottawa, 2. Go to nearest CIC office to surrender card, fill up forms, interview, etc.

Please share your experience about the process you followed and how long it took. Thanks in advance.
