So I’ve been playing the multiple re-entry game since January 2004. My school is offering to get me an ARC. Assuming they get started at the beginning of January 2005, what can I expect? Specifically:
Do I have to give up my MR visa (this is my understanding)?
Will I need to leave the country?
As I understand it there wasa a time I could have converted my MR visa to a work visa, then a residency visa and ARC without having to leave the country. But now I’ll need to get my work visa, then leave the country and apply for a residecy visa, then come back and apply for ARC (and I know my employer does most of this “applying”). Which one can I expect?
