Default Leaving CA By Road

Hi All

The following question may sound stupid but i have yet to find the answer. Here is the scenario..... in steps:

1) Person goes to CA to become a landed immigrant.
2) Enters CA and stays for a few weeks.
3) Hires a car and drives down to the US and leaves the car there. (Assuming they have the visa to enter US). Seondly no-one stamps the passport on exit from CA.
4) Boards a plane to the their original country from the US. This being a round trip.

Here is the dumb question - how does CA immigration know if you are in the country or not?

I personally believe in honesty but the question was put to me by a mate while we were talking about the PR.

Thanks

When you get to the border you tell the examining agent that you require an I-94 and you will be directed to secondary where you will pay $6 to have an I-94 placed in your passport.

Immigration doesn't care whether the person is in the country or not. If the person is concerned about losing PR (due to failure to be in Canada for required time) it will be for the person to prove it if immigration raise it at a later date.

With no Canadian income details, or other documents to evidence that the person was living in Canada, person is likely to be unable to prove they were in Canada at the time.

Best of luck with that

Thanks for the responses.

It is logical that the individual needs to prove their residency in CA.

Current system is quite flexible and allows you to stay out for quite a long period.

Cheers
