    Timeline and tips for applying for US tourist visa

    I'm not sure what you mean. They asked for a copy of his CV (Curriculum Vitae) ? A standard CV has one section for work experience and another for education. Put the masters degree in the education section with the name of the school and date of graduation, and put the work in the work...

    Sept 2017 - Any PR Card renewal applications submitted

    They asked me to come visit the office and sign an authorization form so that we can contact Citizenship and Immigration to enquire into your wife’s application status. However, by then, we had received the card so I told them it wasn't necessary.

    US citizen, living in Canada with Canadian PR working in the USA

    This is a fair comment. I'd find an accountant to handle your taxes - even in this kind of scenario, it's only going to be about $100 at the most, and it's well worth it to be sure it's done right.

    Timeline and tips for applying for US tourist visa

    When you apply for US visa, they want to see an itinerary - it doesn't actually have to be booked. Go to expedia or whatever, create an itinerary forthe approximate time you plan to travel and print it off as your expected travel. I wouldn't even bother showing them your currently booked travel...

    Sept 2017 - Any PR Card renewal applications submitted

    Despite for some reason being unable to check status online, we called in today and were told that the card was mailed June 4. Hopefully this means whatever delay had been occurring recently has been resolved and timelines will speed back up.

    Waiting for the decision

    Maybe the best is to do a Case Specific Enquiry. You can do that online by filling in this form: https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/canada-case-cas-eng.aspx?_ga=2.90025758.46441684.1528293937-1941132259.1524065532

    Waiting for the decision

    It's most likely they haven't started processing the application. Have you checked the status online here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/check-status.html

    Waiting for the decision

    According to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/, once they receive a fully complete application, you should expect the processing time to take 58 days.

    Decision made to Complete - Pr Card Renewal

    It depends how frequently they update it. Recently, they have not been updating very regularly - many people have their update sitting in "Decision Made" for over a month at the moment (self included).

    US citizen, living in Canada with Canadian PR working in the USA

    You'll have to file US taxes regardless as you know. For Canadian taxes, you will be required to file taxes if you spend more than 183 days of the year living in Canada, and your worldwide income is taxable. You'll receive a foreign tax credit for whatever taxes you pay in the USA.

    Can we still travel?

    Trying to check application status today, it continually says it can't recognize based on the information provided - I've tried both the PR card # and the UCI (both of which I've done successfully many times before). Anyone else having this problem?

    PR card renewal in 2018. Processing times increasing constantly.

    No clear explanation. A few rumors, including that they may be devoting more resources to citizenship applications given that there will be an election at some point in the next year. Probably just high volume of applications, slow gov't work, nothing more.

    Can we still travel?

    You have no valid passport in hand, no work visa in hand, and no PR card in hand? Yes, I'd say you'll have trouble getting into Canada.

    Permanent Resident Renewal Timeline 2018

    Well, generally right now it seems it's approximately 4.5-5 months from application being sent in to card in the mail, and seems to be getting slower. You need a timeline of 4 months. I wouldn't be optimistic.
