I am Pre-March 2020 and have not received any email. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we are supposed to do in this case?
Same boat. Feels like I'm the only one left. I'm going crazy.

COPR Expired in May 2020. My spouse is a Canadian PR and we have done everything - approached MPs, lawyers, got GCMS notes, nothing helped. We are just being told to wait, wait, wait.

You are definitely not the only one left. Man, Approaching MPs,Lawyers didn't help? Here I was hoping my single Webform request will do the trick :(

Toronto MP was the most helpful. My spouse resides there so we made a request. They enquired IRCC like 4 times on our behalf (they checked in with us every month) - but each time the MP's office got a generic response from IRCC (asking us to wait till we get contacted).

Lawyers - contacted 3 so far. 2 paid consultations and one free - all of them said nothing to do but wait.

Webforms - 1 in May 2020, 1 in August 2020, 1 in October 2020, 1 in Dec 2020 and then we stopped bothering.

Many, many, many people whose COPR expired after ours got their extension and landed too.

Hi Everyone,

My COPR expired last September 2020. IRCC reached out to use in May to see if we are interested, then go through Medical examination again. We passed the medical exam and now are asking for passport submission but this time the whole process of passport submission seems very different. In the document they send, they asked us to follow https://www.vfsglobal.ca/canada/usa/how_to_apply.html#temporary_documents process, where we need to send separate envelope for each applicants and thus need to pay fees for each applicants separately which comes to 88 USD per applicant ( which comes to 360 usd for us). I remember previously, I send all documents in a single envelope using Fedex last time. Also, along with each submission, we need to submit some consent form and make sure we are not eligible for Biometrics ( which we are not as per IRCC account).

Has any one gone through the similar process or is this whats new for every passport submission for the applicants. Looking forward for guidance.

Last time when I submitted passport to VAC Japan, I was asked just to submit the first 2 pages of consent form signed by primary applicant. They charged us for each applicant (additional charges for child who was exempt for providing biometric) but we were asked to send all the passport & signed papers in single envelop. When sending back, they send passport & COPR in different envelop for each applicant.

Thanks for the information. The whole process is messed up it seems through VAC.

I am goin to send my documents for passport submission. Purely by chance i noticed that my passport needed to be uploaded (updated) again in the document list in GC key.
The application status in the home page changed to "submitted" once i did tht. Till thn it was "action required".
I submitted it again.. just wondering if everyone had the same requirement .. are they asking simply or for whtever reason? Any idea?

Dear Friends,

Everyone here is like extended family...so sharing the good news!!! We had finally received the PPR request on 27th July. I think I am among the oldest pending cases here and with this group from page 1.

COPR issued in Dec 2019 and expired on 01 April 20. We received medical request in May 21 and got it done immediately. Even after that it was long 2 months wait.

From the start of the this unpredicted time, this group and update posted by member are like light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks you so much and the people who are waiting, just hang in there!!!! This shall too pass.
