Is it a good idea to make a new passport after receiving ITA for FSW.

I have been suggested to get the new passport to rectify a mistake in my fathers name.

Should I change the passport between EE and PR to rectify this mistake. I am not sure whether changing the passport number would be a good idea or not considering that my EE profile, ECA report and IELTS results are based on existing passport number.

thanks in advance.

Renewing your passport will not have a negative effect on your application; you simply need to let IRCC know that you have a new passport number.

So if you need to update your passport for whatever reason, it's not a problem.

getting new passport issued should not be a problem. make sure you update them with the CSE and email the Ottawa office as well.

thanks istari for the help. this forum has been extremely helpful.

Just one more question. While putting the passport information on online PR form, should I mention the new passport no or the both new and the one which was used to submit the EE.

I'm not 100% sure, sorry.

But I think that if you get a new passport before you submit your eAPR, you should use the details from your new passport, and include an LOE and details of your old passport when you upload a copy of your passport.

Use details of the old passport until you have submitted the details of the new one- at that point, you can start using details of the new one.
