Hi everyone,

I got my COPR through the Express Entry program. The COPR expires in late March, so my husband and I have booked flights for the end of February. We are not ready to move permanently yet, so we plan to stay in Canada for 1-2 months only.

I checked on IRCC website and the average amount of time to receive the PR cards for new immigrants is 61 days, but some people on this forum have reported longer waits. This means we might not receive the PR cards during our short stay in Canada.

I also read that you can use a UPS rental service in which a UPS store can receive the cards and send them to your home country; and that a UPS store's address looks like a residential home address so it won't be an issue.

Can anyone confirm if this information is correct? Has anyone used UPS for receiving PR cards? could you share your experience?

Many thanks!

never heard of such a program. Is it not to risky to use a third party to handle your PR cards? what if it gets lost?

Many people use third party service to courier their PR cards. If lost, they would need to get a replacement.
