Thanks for your answer. We relocated from India, we are in Canada around 1080 days. Last four years mean we are one year in India before coming to Canada, but we submitted our PCC in our PR application. When we are relocated the PCC is still valid (within 5 months 15 days we came to Canada) after that we never visited India. In this case still, we need to provide PCC again or not.
That 180 days is after you became pr. If you came to canada and left to india for 1 year then you need pcc. If you did not go to india after you became pr, then u dont need.

Did you ask to be added to the sheet? Also, i could see another post for you with different timelines.
Yes please add. There shouldn't be another time line actually. I don't know why it is so. Please take this in to consideration.
Thank you

That 180 days is after you became pr. If you came to canada and left to india for 1 year then you need pcc. If you did not go to india after you became pr, then u dont need.
This is, unfortunately, incorrect information. The 183 days in the last five years question on the citizenship application makes NO distinction between days as a PR and days before PR. If, as you describe, you have been to india for a year before becoming PR, then you need a new certificate. The PCC you submitted for your PR application does not cover the close to six months between issuance of the PR and you leaving india. According to section 22(2)(a) of the citizenship act, IRCC has to ensure that you did not commit any crimes in the four years before applying. With a PCC that does not cover those 5-6 months before your move, IRCC can not confirm this.

Again, note that there is no "days before PR don't count" rule anywhere on the form, the guide or in the Citizenship Act.

If getting a new PCC is time intensive, you could try to explain that on the form and say that you will submit the PCC later while the application is in process. I would not recommend that but other people are doing it apparently.

But in any case you must answer YES to the question that you spent 183 days or more in another country in the last four years. Everything else would be you misstating the facts.

Hi, how do you check your E-case status ? is it the same like checking application status or it is a different link ?
It is the same thing as checking application status. "Ecas" is just a short form for that. Your AOR will have the "Application Number". You can use this and your personal details to check status.

For March applicants so far the average time was "around" three weeks. But I guess it may depend on your location also. Not sure.

That's for AoR. For IP, most of the March applications still didn't turn into IP.

That's correct. The average time I mentioned was based on the four applicants who got IP so far.

Again, you have to count ALL days in India in the last four years, no matter if they were before or after PR. If I read your description right, you have been to India for more than 183 days in the last four years, so you have to choose "Yes" for that question.

So... i called cic today and asked them about entry and exit record. The agent told me the records are for eligibility period only. I called indian embassy and asked for such records and she told me she can not provide any of those records but they can give me written explanation that they can not provide me that.
