Do parents receive permanent resident documents in the airport , other than the PR card?

Also how long it takes to receive PR card after landing?

Update. I did landing for my parents at 1000 Island bridge border. It took approximately 30 minutes on the US side. They captured all the details including fingerprints and photos of my parents and gave a yellow slip. At Canada border within 10 minutes landing was completed. It was worth driving that far.

Did your parents receive permanent resident documents as a proof they became PR until they receive the PR card?

What questions parents were asked during the landing process?

I used dubai police app, it didnt accept ID, saying invalid, there is a date on my parents ID. Please let me know which link u used, bcoz also dubai police website page also says sending fingerprint by mail as a seperate point when i try to fill in details.

@anni_in , i am planning to do the same at 1000 Island Bridge, when the passports for my parents are back.
When you go to the US Border do you just say that you need to flagpole to land as Permanent Resident of Canada?

Thank you! May be it is less and more now? did any one has recently experience having parents in police?

May be different for every country? does any one knows?

Thanks
Does it take longer to process if parents worked in the Government jobs? My timelines are similar to you and we haven't got any update after medical passed except pre-arrival letter in Sep and my parents worked in Govt. jobs.

Did you check your junk mailbox.. Passport request for few of us were delivered to Spam folder in Gmail in September. if you see Decision Made in ECAS, try calling CIC and see status on it..
