Not sure. It seems they stopped issuing and sending actual COPR around that date. But I wonder why they’ve issued COPR for some applicants after that date, while we supposed to receive ours first.
That's my question as well. They seem to be really messed up. No updates are given and nothing (except for GCMS) is transparent. The situation has become quite stressful for me. Is there any way to actually talk directly to an officer or someone responsible?

Calling them and Webform is a waste of time. Both are in-conclusive. GCMS might be the closest to what the actual status is.

@RKM20 @canadawaiting @CNP @idhar_chicha @Sahilvee @dhruv_delhi @DixvilleNotch

Thank you guys for your suggestion.
I dropped a reply yesterday on the same email (DO you still want to Immigrate?).
I mentioned that my medicals were completed and updated in the system on 8th June, 2021 & I guess they woke up.

I have received a Request Letter in the name of Primary applicant and not for the spouse.
Also I see a passport upload link only for the Primary applicant.
Should I wait again on should I raise a webform/email to inform them that they haven't given Request letter for spouse/dependent.

Thanks in Advance,
:)
Sir, I would really like to thank you for writing this post.
I too had previously sent a reply at the email asking for my remedical request to be sent to me but it didn’t work. I was then sending webforms to try to expedite the remedical request, but was getting very generic replies.
After reading your post, I thought about trying again by replying to the email, and by god’s grace, it worked. I JUST received my remedical request (had been waiting since April) and I would like to thank you for sharing your experience. I had given up on expecting a reply, but I guess miracles do happen haha.

@legalfalcon hey i have a query. i am planning to visit my in-laws in South africa. If i get a request for PPR , Can i submit my passport to High commission of Canada in Pretoria?.or is it has to be through the office in New Delhi?
You will have to request IRCC to send you the instructions to submit your passport at South Africa. It can take 1-3 weeks and also after you submit, it may take 1-5 weeks for the passport to be returned. So make sure that you intend being there for this long.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hello Everyone, seeking all your expert advice in my case. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My COPR was issued before Mar 18 2020. But it expired in June 2020. After my expiry I tried contacting IRCC Couple of times in the month of MAY, September informing my ability not to travel.

I have been checking Canada PR program website quite some time now. At one point of time they mentioned only applicants who are willing to settle completely as Canadian PR Are welcome couldn't travel at that time as IRCC Requested many documents which are not with me. Now I they mentioned IRCC will start contacting applicants with Expired COPR. But in my case I haven't received any email. Totally confused.
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/service-delivery/coronavirus/permanent-residence.html

At this point I am scared if my COPR Is cancelled or is it valid. I also saw Canadian borders are going to be opened by mid of august. Please let me know what can do in this phase to re initiate my COPR.

Tried Contacting IRCC On phone multiple time all I hear is " Call cant be completed due to high volume"

ANY HELP IS GREATLY A{{RECIATED. THANKS TO EVERYONE IN THIS GROUP IN ADVANCE.
I am in the same boat. COPR approved Pre-March 2020. Expired Sep 2020. Still waiting for the email. Should I go ahead and start a Webform request?

Hello All,

This community has been very supportive and helpful. Just wanted to update you all that I've recently successfully completed my landing in Canada. I flew from SFO - YVR, immigration part was super smooth and literally it took less than 10 minutes end-to-end. VO asked no question other than the address we're moving in.

Please feel free to ask any specific questions you guys have. Good luck to everyone.

Can anyone help me out, i have received the PPR but it is only one letter in the name of the primary applicant. Do we just attach the same letter (in the name of the primary applicant) when we dispatch the dependent's passport in a separate package as well? Or do we send both passport's in the same packaging with only one letter? Also, do we leave page 4 of the consent form blank (biometrics, since we have already given ours) ??

Any help would be appreciated @CNP @legalfalcon @idhar_chicha

@InterstellarImmigrant I'm glad that it helped you out. All the credit goes to the great members of this forum who have helped me one way or another.
Also, when your medical results are updated in your GC key account, do send another email and let them know that you've completed your medicals and you should get the request letter after that.
All the best !

@amarneo I also got one letter in the name of Primary applicant. You can attach the same letter in the Dependent's package (different package for both Primary & Dependent, since you'll be raising 2 webforms). I believe VFS will do the sorting as both the Primary & Dependent have the same Application number. So don't worry, go ahead.
I have left Page 3 of the Consent letter blank as suggested by the other members of this group.
on Page 4, I have signed the NOT wishing to provide, since Biometrics have a validity of 10 years and we've given them already before PPR1.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much @JagjyotSingh ! I had been holding off on raising the webform waiting for clarity on these points. Much appreciated! :)

Guys once we get copr, what are the travelling options for copr holders , is mexico an option or we will need Mexico visa to pass through? pR card holders can travel via Mexico but what about copr holders only ? Any idea
If you have US or Canada visa on your passport(which we will have) you don’t need Mexico visa.So after stamping on our passport ,we are good to go Mexico.
There are other options also via Europe by getting transit visa.

That's correct, you will receive only 1 letter on the primary applicant. You can use that for the dependents as well. The Application number mentioned on the PPR is the same for everyone in the family.

Travel plans are being discussed in this thread - https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/post-ppr-2021-moving-to-canada-2021-2022.739100/page-2#post-9569729

Let's keep the conversations on this one related to CoPRs and expired CoPRs especially since we have many amongst us who are behind in the process for no fault of theirs.
