By Support Staff

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) may allow COPR and PR visa holders or those with expired ones to travel to Canada.

According to IRCC’s new guidelines, there are few sets of rules for those who wanted to travel to Canada holding COPR and PRV.

Those with valid COPR and PRV

Traveling from any country other than the US (group 1)

If the COPR and PRV were issued on or before March 18, 2020, and are still valid, the applicant

  • is exempt from the travel restrictions
  • can travel to Canada for non-discretionary reasons with the COPR and PRV to settle and live in Canada as a permanent resident and
  • must have an acceptable plan to quarantine for 14 days in Canada

Applicants must check the issue date in the Application Details section of their COPR to see if this applies to them.

Traveling from the US (group 2)

Applicants can travel to Canada from the US for non-discretionary reasons to settle and live in Canada as a permanent resident if

  • their application was approved
  • they received their COPR and PRV and both are still valid and
  • they have an acceptable plan to quarantine for 14 days in Canada

  1. Dear Mr/Ms! We are approved Permanent Resident applicants with expiring CoPR. Unfortunately, we cannot travel to Canada before our documents expire because we are in risk group due to covid 19.( We are more then 70 years old ) Long flight with transfer is danger for us now. Can we ask to postpone CoPR visas expire date for several months? Best regards.

  2. Good day,
    My COPR expired on the 17th of September 2020. We sent a mail to IRCC through webform explaining why we couldn’t travel all due to the global pandemic even before the expiration of our COPR. Now it is expired. Please i would like to find out if i am to send another mail through webform saying our COPR has expired or wait till we are ready to travel in February.
    Also, what are we to do (myself and wife) before traveling to avoid delays because a lot of people with expired COPR still haven’t heard from IRCC and have bought their tickets and ready to travel.
    Also, when should we purchase our tickets? is it before sending “ready to travel” mail or after?

    Thank you for your assistance
