I just landed in Canada for the first time. However, I left Canada before I received the PR card. After 2months, I received a letter from the PR Card department that I have to retake the photo in Vancouver.

 

The problem is I am now in Australia completing my PhD and I can’t go back to Canada without a PR card.

 

Questions:

  1. Is that OK to tell the truth to the concerning department?
  2. Should I apply a visa to Canada in order to take a photo then leave again?
  3. Will I lose my PR status?

 

thanks

1. Always be honest
2. Apply for PR Travel Document at nearest Cdn embassy
3. No, but make sure you are familiar with residency obligations as a PR.

All info is available on CIC website. Check CIC website for details

I had to go through a similar situation in 2004. 2 months after landing, I was asked to go to local CIC to get the picture retaken as the picture I had taken during the application did not meet the standards. However I could not go to local CIC since I was in another province and eventually was outside Canada for a short term.
In my case, I was able to enter Canada without a Travel Document and I believe after one year, I showed up at a local CIC office to get the picture taken.
