Hi Everyone

I wonder if anybody can advise me

I sent my application for PR Renewal on the 14/2/15 received a letter from cic dated the 31st March 2015 saying a preliminary review of your application has been completed and additional information is required before our final review can be completed. this will result in an additional delay.

For the purpose of determining if you have upheld the residency obligations please provide proof of your residency in Canada for the period 14/2/10 to 14/2/15 please submit a copy of the following documents

Complete pages of your passports color copies
personal immigration entry/exit records for the countries where you have travelled.

I sent copies of the passports to them on the 8th April 2015 I had stamps on my passports for the countries where I had been. The only thing I didn't have stamp for was my last entry into Canada because I used the fast track machine at the airport in Canada where you go on arrival instead of going to immigration agent. I did have my boarding pass which I sent to them.
Also I have a uk passport so when you leave uk or enter it you don't get any stamps.
They say in ther letter if you do receive the requested information within 180 days of the date of the letter we will consider your pr application abandoned.

I have called cic several times after that to make sure they have received everything and the agent says they have everything otherwise you would have received another letter requesting more information.
They say it is seconday review now and don't know how long it will take.

Is anbodyelse in the same time situation

Also my mum is ill in the uk in hospital and if I were to go I would only go for 1 week because I have a job and family here. Has anybody applied for a travel document from the visa office in London. How long does it take.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

A relative of mine received the same letter when he was asked to pick up his PR card in person. He did prepare everything but the agent did not even ask to see any documents. He just had to show his passports and give the agent his old PR card. The pick up process was really quick except the wait for your turn. Hope this helps.

I picked up my renewed PR card last month from a local office. The officer checked all the requested documents. She also asked all my travels from the time I entered Canada. Also complained that she cannot find the translation of a stamp! At the end she gave me the PR card though!

I was just wondering how cic officers decide who should get secondly review. They say people who didn't come to canada in the first 2 or 3 years have many more opportunity to get secondly review. I don't know whether friends in this forum have this situation.

My time line:
receipt of applicant: Mar.17,2015.
start to process: Apr.25,2015.
secondary review: Apr.25,2015.
no info from cic up to now.

Hi

Here is timeline for PR Renewal

March 2015 - Sent PR Renewal

April 2015 - Letter for additional documents / Secondary Review

August 2015 - Sent all the Documents for last 5 years

Called CIC for update, till date they didn't have any update for receipt of documents sent in August 2015 (we have FedEx confirmation with name), there system displays only letter sent for Secondary Review / Additional Documents in April 2015

While as per CIC letter : If we do not receive the requested information within 180 days of the date above, we will consider your application for a permanent resident card abandoned

Please advise

Send a CSE & attach a scan of your FedEx delivery receipt. Request confirmation that they have received the documents you sent.

Did you send CSE with a copy of the FedEx receipt for the documents you sent in response to the letter?
