Default ENTREPRENEUR - REMOVING CONDITIONS OF LANDING

Hello i applied under the Entrepneur Category in june 2001. I got landed on 22 sep 2005.I had conditions imposed -i had to set up a new business or buy a successful business or buy a share into an existing business.
I chose the latter + bought a 50% share in a restaurant .I sent my application to have my conditions removed in january 2008.
I got a letter confirming my application to have conditions removed.
I made a phone call in NOV + was told by the immigration officer that my file has not been looked at yet.
I want to sell my share in the restaurant as i now want to just get a regular job + spend more time with my wife + young kids.
Can the immig dept refuse to remove my conditions if i sell the business.
Can i now apply for citizenship having been here 3 years 3 months.

Maybe you could contact the "Business Immigration Section" at your local "Ministry of Economic Development and Trade". for guidance.

My experience of speaking to them is that they are very helpful and I would find it hard to belive they would want to cause you any suffering if you were forced to do something you were not happy with having given it your best shot.

Of course maybe a total waste of time...

Would be pleased if you updated the thread with the response.

Good luck.

1. Until the conditions on PR visa are removed, you can't apply for citizenship.
2. Basically you are going to have to wait until the local CIC looks at the business and decides whether to remove the conditions or not.
3. I personally would wait until the conditions are removed before selling the business, but it is your decision.
