It shouldn´t be a problem...afterall you are just landing, in Canada and thereafter you may go back to wherever you like and later move finally,so long the time duration for staying outside Canada as a landed immigrant is not exceed

Hi, Just want to ask if ever I was assigned to another country by my saudi employer and given an exit reentry visa (valid for 6 months) and I would like to make an "ungraceful exit" and go to the USA for another job, will I encounter problems? Will immigration question me if they see the exit reentry stamp on my paasport ans ask me why I didn´t return to my saudi employer?

Normally, exit and re-entry visa from Jawazaat (sudi immigration) is 6 months. but sometimes employers can get 1 year exit/rentry visa.
All i know from my experience is: if you are working in company, then there will be no problem with the employer, if you go some other country other than the exit/re-entry planned country. But if you working with some shitt saudi employer, then he might give you hard time in future on exit/re-entry visa requests.

best way is: just let him know before you travel that you got Canadian Immigration approval and you want to land here, so you can keep your immigration status.

For pakistani working is saudia or anywhere else in mid-east, you can apply in Islamabad at the canadian counslate.

the procedure is simple, just go to
and follow the instructions about the immigration. If yo wants to go through lawyer then best way is go through the canadian Lawyers, not the pakistani or Egyption lawyers.

You can check the date of your exit/re-entry visa on your passport. it starts from the date you travel.

you have a problem. you have not met the residency obligations of 2 year residency in Canada out of the past 5 years.

you may be faced with applying for immigration all over again.
