Thanks fsw_hk! Is it better to get a courier to send the paper over? I’m so worried that regular mailing won’t make to the ircc office in two weeks.... Say if it did happen, hat are the odds that ircc reject my application due to incomplete documentation? Thanks!
IRCC is saying they won't reject applications with missing documents during COVID, if you have proof that you have applied for those documents. You can definitely opt for courier service to be on the safe side.

If you apply, you still need to submit a complete application. This means you must include all the supporting documents we ask for. If you can’t get some of these documents right now, you should wait to apply until you can get them.

If you already applied for a document but it’s delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can send proof that you’re trying to get it (like a receipt). Include a letter to tell us why you don’t have the document and when you’ll get it. Send us the document as soon as you have it to avoid more delays.

If you are missing documents due to COVID-19 (such as police certificates, biometrics, passports and medical exams)
  • we won’t close or refuse any applications in progress
  • we’ll automatically give you an extra 90 daysto send us the documents from the deadline in the request letter
    • this applies even if the letter says you only have 30 or 90 days
  • we’ll keep extending the deadline for another 90 days until you can get the documents
  • you don’t have to contact us to get this extension
  • once you’re able to, send us the missing documents as soon as possible to avoid further delays

As far as I know, IRCC will conduct following review on applicants:

https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/september-2020-aor-join-here.700416/

Eligibility - CIC evaluation of your compliance with all requirements (pass or fail)
Medical - Applicants medical exam when requested by CIC
Criminality - PCC sent with application, including CIC independent checks and RCMP (when requested)
Security - Checks completed by CSIS

Normally, medical is the first stage and followed by criminality and eligibility. Security is the last stage. After all processes are passed, they will issue the Passport Request (RRP) which is the signal of issuing CoPR.

Yes it took me around 6 weeks after I submit my application. Then, they inform me that I can choose whether HKPF will send it out through regular mail or I pay for the courier service. Of course I chose to pay for the courier service (DHL). The next week (after I paid for the service and then I sent them my waybill), HKPF said I can arrange pick up, DHL is pretty fast, almost the next day the tracking shows my CNCC is in the USA then arrived Toronto ON. The last update is deliver arranged. However, no more further update after that... so my concern is I am not sure whether my CNCC has delivered or not... headache
Hi sktung702, I am exactly in the same pace with you. I got me CNCC delivered by DHL on October 6th, and I just called IRCC today and the agent said she only see my webform (I sent my proof of delivery on Oct 7th) but the office has not confirm they receive my certificate. The agent said I cannot do anything but wait until they further update my case. How about you?

Hi, could you share the timeline of your HK CNCC? After the AOR, how long did it take IRCC to issue the letter to HK police asking for the CNCC? Thanks a lot.

I have question here on How to arrange courier pickup by DHL/Fedex etc... As I want my documents to be sent by courier to IRCC instead of normal post.
1) Did you ask them to arrange private courier ?
2) how did you pay ? Is it online ?
3) Or you arranged a Label and email to HK PF ?

Little confused .. Please let me know the process you followed ..

You must pay and arrange for pick-up online and then email the proof of payment and the label to HKPF. Tell them you want to arrange courier pickup when applying for the CNCC.

  • As part of business resumption priorities, IRCC has allocated resources to speed up processing of permanent residence applications, including for family sponsorship. This will benefit Hong Kong applicants. Spouses or common-law partners who have applied for permanent residence from within Canada can apply for an open work permit.

Does anyone know if this expedited processing of PR applications for HKers also applies to express entry applicants who are HK residents?
