Approved permanent residence applications (COPR and PRV)
Permanent residence applicants who are in possession of a COPR and PRV and inform us, by submitting a Web form to IRCC, that they are unable to travel within the validity of their documentation should be processed as follows:

  • Valid COPR and PRV: In an effort to reduce the number of cancelled COPRs and PRVs, a note should be placed in the file explaining that the applicant is unable to travel, and the file should be brought forward to the expiration date of the COPR and PRV. If the applicant informs IRCC that they can travel prior to the COPR and PRV expiration, they are encouraged to use their existing COPR and PRV to land.
  • Expired COPR and PRV: If the applicant informs IRCC via the Web form that they are unable or unwilling to travel after the expiration of their COPR and PRV, or if they are unable or unwilling to travel prior to expiration, officers are to re-open the application, and it should be brought forward for review in 90 days. These files can be identified by their disposition in the GCMS and the org ID O263567290956.
I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish by copy-pasting information from IRCC's website. IRCC has made it very clear that they will re-open the applications of applicants whose COPR has expired due to not being able to travel. As for those who have COPR issued after March 18, they are still not allowed to come to Canada. I am still not sure whether you have a COPR or a document which states you are a permanent resident. If it's the latter, you need a PRTD to travel to Canada.

If it states you are a permanent resident, you are a permanent resident. Inland applicants have been getting different versions of this document. It is hard for me to say if it's a COPR or some other document without seeing it. Anyways, this document is obviously meant to help you apply for a permanent SIN number and other government services. COPR holders on the other hand are not permanent residents of Canada. You can not use this document for travel. You will need to get a PRTD as you are outside Canada. You will need to send a photo for your PR card once you return to Canada.

Yes, you need to have the photos stamped by the photographer and you have to write your UCI number when you send your photographs. You have to send these photos once you are in Canada.

COPR documents have an expiry date. They usually expire one year from the date of your upfront medical exam. Again, I can't say if it's a COPR or not without looking at it. Local visa officers are doing this procedure differently, some are sending COPR to inland candidates and asking them to send back 2 photos while others are sending a letter which states 'Congratulations, you are now a permanent resident' and asks applicants to send 2 pictures along with that letter. In my opinion, you should not be too worried about the document, you still need a PRTD to travel to Canada. I do not think the travel restrictions apply to you as you are a permanent resident now.

No problem at all. I am happy to help. I think PRTDs are emailed if the VACs close to you are closed. I wish you good luck!

Hi Venudatti,

I too received COPR today. Did you also receive a hard copy of COPR to your residence? Did you send photos and COPR (printed COPR received via email)? Did you send two photos one with UCI# and another with Photo Studio address and date?
Hi, I only received an email with COPR attached. I didn't receive any hard copy. Currently, I am not in Canada, so didn't send any photos yet

I put change status. Thats the only one make sense, as you are going from temporary to permanent.

Hi sharjeel, thanks for your reply

did you receive SIN in your homecountry (Pakistan) will it be a good idea to change address in CIC in this Covid time ?

Did you apply for PRTD or any other for going back to canada or COPR is enough?

I am in Canada. I applied for SIN couple days ago. No update yet. I will update this thread when I get it.
