Hey guys,
Quick question here. When I submitted my application, I uploaded all of the employment records to fields that had Employment 1, Employment 2, up until Employment 6. Since CIC mostly uses reverse chronological order for almost everything, that is the order I submitted the documents.

I went to see it yesterday, for no reason, and found that the fields now have the name of the position I held and they used just regular chronological order, so none of my documents match the correct position. Anyone here experienced this? I am a little scared right now.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I also got the golden email last friday night. :D

1) Did you guys checked the cic website? Mine has no updates and still says my process is being analysed and all the documents are being reviewed..)

2) passport copies: I personally believe we have to send the original passport and a visa will be issued (attached to it) even though Brazil is on the eTA class..

3) Do you know if we can hand it straight to the Canadian Consulate or do we have to go to VSF and pay the BLR 82.00 for that?

best of luck to all of us,
JFA

2) passport copies: I personally believe we have to send the original passport and a visa will be issued (attached to it) even though Brazil is on the eTA class.. You may call them, but I also believe we have to send the passport (that's what I did)

3) Do you know if we can hand it straight to the Canadian Consulate or do we have to go to VSF and pay the BLR 82.00 for that?
I went to the VFS office in São Paulo and had to pay R$29,85 (courier service) + R$ 65,60 (Passport transmission). We have to do the process through VFS
best of luck to all of us,

I don't think you should worry about it. There has been at least one case in this forum which the person did the same as you and received the PPR.
You can raise CSE and explain the situation, though, if you're really worried

Hi guys,
For those who got their PPRs, how long did it take to receive the passport back from VFS with the CoPR?
I`m in Sao Paulo, by the way.
Thanks

Hi guys,

My status just changed to IP2 today, when should I expect the PPR e-mail? Does anyone have info about the landing process for inland applicants? I heard you can do it at the CIC office but I'm not sure how that works. I would much appreciate some insight regarding that. Thank you!!

It takes from 1 day to 3 weeks to receive PPR after IP2. Your case seems to be a quick one, so you should expect PPR soon.
In regards your landing, there are other threads in this forum that might answer your question, take a look...but yes, you can go to a CIC office and have it done or you can go to the boarder to flagpole

same here _Leandro_ , I went there this afternoon.
In less than 10 days we get our passports back
Any update on your CoPR, buddy?
It`s been 7 days since I dropped off my passport at VFS and haven`t received anything back yet, even the status of my application hasn`t changed since then.
