Default A question to Andrew Miller: passport expires in 4 months

My husband and me are supposed to leave Israel for Canada on the 12th
of November as PR(s). Everything is arranged already, we have all
necessary documents, tickets reserved. The only problem is that my
husband's passport is valid only till 3d of March 2003 and he can't
extend it, but only get a new one (there are regulations demanding
change of passport after 10 years). Moreover, the Ministery of
Interior is on strike now. We have to buy out our tickets 2 weeks
before the flight, and we don't want to do it without this problem
being resolved.
If he goes with his old passport should be there any problems on
Canadian officials side?
Thank you.

He needs to travel before his passport expires, the visa is valid as long as
the passport is so if the passport expires so does the visa.
If you plan on travelling in November 2002 and his passport doesnt expire
till march 2003 then i dont see what the problem is, go in November and land
and become PR's then he can apply for his new passport next year when his
current one expires, once he is a landed PR then it doesnt matter if his
passport expires, everyone expires at some point. He will have his PR card
by then to prove his PR status as well.

you just need a valid passport to enter into canada and complete the landing process.. once you become a landed immigrant, you can let the passport expire, the passport is no longer a status document for the purpose of permanent residence, thats what the pr card is for...

you dont have to worry about renewing or getting a fresh passport unless you want to travel, which is when you will need a valid passport, but if you dont intend to leave canada during such time your passport will expire, then there will be no problem...
