I am at a loss here. Here's a brief summary of what happened to me:
I was born and raised in the Philippines. I was granted permanent residency at birth because my parents were already permanent residents of the Philippines at the time of my birth. About five years ago, while applying for a renewal of my PR card along with a change of address, the bureau of immigration looked into my file and said that I shouldn't have been issued native-born permanent residency as my parents weren't permanent residents yet when I was born (I don't know where they got this info from). They asked for an explanation and our agent just told them I was young and a nice person and all, without providing sufficient evidence as to why I was a rightful permanent resident cardholder (evidence that my parents became permanent residents months before I was born). They were not satisfied with the explanation, which led to them issuing an order forfeiting my native-born status and asking me to downgrade and to secure the appropriate visa (my agent told me not to downgrade to a tourist visa or any other visa because once I did, I would not be able to fight for my PR status again). I was a dumb teenager at the time and didn't understand the gravity of the situation.
About two years ago, I realized that they were wrong to downgrade my status. We got another agent and I gave them all the evidence showing that my parents were already lawful permanent residents when I was born. A motion for reconsideration was filed and the bureau of immigration looked into my file again, and after about a year, they issued another order stating that I was qualified under the native-born category and reinstated my status as a permanent resident. My agent told me that my status is clear now, but I am still worried.
I don't know what to do now. Should I check yes or no for this question? By asking to get my PR card renewed and them basically saying no and asking me to get another visa, does it count as visa refusal? I'm so scared. Moving to Canada has always been my dream and years of my life have already been taken from me. Can you please help me? :(
