    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    Oh okay. My letter had complete instructions on how to change the address and it was not to include the address in a letter and send it to them. Hope it works for you.

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    They will not entertain the address written on the letter you sent along with the photos. You have to follow the instructions on the photo request letter or in my earlier post.

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    If you did not use the "address change notification tool" on the CIC website then your address would most probably be the old one. It was mentioned in the Photo request letter to update the address if it has changed separately. "To avoid any delay, please provide IRCC with a permanent Canadian...

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    Congratulations. This means this is your 1st GU after photo submission. You should see an "Approved" message in your application 2-3 days from now and should get your PR cards in the mail in about 1-2 weeks.

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    I agree with you. Our original photos were perfect in every way. But the new ones were of bad quality. I am doubtful if the new ones would be accepted. I am still waiting for them to review the new photos. The photos were delivered to the Sydney office on 30th Sep.

    There is a mailing address available as well for the Sydney CPC. I am planning to send the photos directly to the mailing address (not PO. Box) via UPS/FedEx.

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    I think there is no other choice but to re-take the photos and explicitly ensure that the new photos meet the specifications (not rely entirely on the photographer assurances). I'm just thinking whether to send the photos directly to their mailing address via FedEx/UPS or mail it to the PO Box...

    PR card - March 2020 processing time

    Hello everyone, I and my wife also received the photo request email/letter. We did a soft landing and came back to the US in April. Our son's application received a ghost update on Friday (09/25) and we haven't received the same photo request letter for him (I'm assuming his PR application got...

    I am also an outland applicant and after soft landing returned to US. I am under the impression that outland applicants do not send any photos, this requirement is only for inland applicants. I landed on 7th April along with my family and received a ghost update on CIC yesterday for my son's...

    I have always talked to SIN office on (866)-274-6627. Call multiple times until you get through to the list, this is the trick. Call early morning when the load is less. I always had to wait around 1 hour 30+ minutes.
