Like medium level wrinkles
It's probably fine, as long as all the information is visible.
If you're still worried, you can always fill out a case specific enquiry to report that it was damaged in transit and you'd like a replacement.
They will then ask you to send the copr back, they'll cancel it, and issue you a new one.

You cant put a number on it, some people finish the whole process in 2 months and some in 8 or 9 months and sometimes beyond that.
It all depends on how they check your profile, documents, etc. and also how long the security checks take.

Can you advise if you send your passport to vsf office, do you need copy of your passport to your online account?

Hello,

We handed over our passports to VFS as this was the preferred method of sending the passports to the Canadian Embassy as per IRCC, rather than submitting the passports directly to the Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi. If not, we would have gone to Abu Dhabi & handed it over to the Embassy in person. Unfortunately it is taking more than 4weeks, that they had mentioned at VFS.

Getting the COPR from IRCC was much faster. We got our COPR overnight soon after we submitted all the required documents via our online profile. I agree that this is very surprising.

Please do let us know if there is any progress.

All the best!

Thanks
Shak
Do we have to submit the passport copy to online profile if the orignal passport submitted to VFS office? what do you submitted exactly to online profile?

I mean when I received the ppe letter, one tab to upload the passport copy to my online account but because I need visa to enter Canada so I have to submit it to the vsf office , so my question is , do I have to upload copy of my passport online if I need visa or do nothing online?

No if by getting the visa you mean getting the counterfoil stamped on your passport, then all you need is your original passport (the one you submitted in the application) + 2 photos with the ppr specifications and that is it. Submit the latter to vfs of the country of your residence (it should be mentioned in the ppr letter).
As for submitting a copy of the passport online, maybe they are asking you to provide a copy of an updated passport, have your passport expired ?, the one you submitted in your application?

I also submitted it yesterday..Tracking shows it has reached VAC abu dhabi.
Did you track it?
Yeah. It only shows its with the Consulate. No other update. Tried calling VFS, and even the consulate... but no one has any info except "Keep Waiting". I need to travel soon for work and cannot have my PP stuck like this. Even sent out a web form, which did nothing. No response whatsoever.
