    not quite sure for visa exempt. I know they definitely get issued COPR but don’t know if they ask for passports for issuing COPR or send it to them. May be someone with similar case on the forum can answer if they got option.

    when they request for passports, they give you option to submit in India or Ottawa if they are already in Canada. no impact to their processing and you don’t need to update them on their arrival to Canada.

    It stayed under review up until the Passports were stamped by Immigration Office and COPR is issued. Check your email as well as in the Junk folder for Passport Request.. you may also call CIC to know the decision and check if any communication was sent out.

    If your parents have property valued $100,000.00 or more it is better to file taxes for them declaring the immovable assets, that way if they decide to bring money after selling property, there would be no issues.. of course any gain in value will be taxable as i understood from fellow members..

    Yes.. it happened to most of us recently.. the next step is that they will notify via email in a few days... you may call after a day if your file was being processed outside of Canada, as the info is synchronized with a delay and agent can let you know the decision... if you receive email, well...

    Thanks.. I believe the expiry would be same on the COPR.. May be as soon as I see online, I shall send out an email for inland landing.. if they give an appointment quickly, I won’t go for flagpoling.. it’s a 3 hr drive.. so back and forth will be too tiresome for parents.. but if it is too long...

    In my case it took 4 months after passed medical to receive passport request.. but there are many who got it real quick too.. I would say it should be soon enough if they don’t ask for RCMP fingerprints check. youmight also check the tracker sheet.. it does give a fair idea of time it takes on...
