Guys, seeking some serious advice on this. My parents' application has been long awaiting for any activity, app was received on June 15th, some additional docs were asked for which were sent in early October 2019. There hasn't been any movement since then. Now the dilemma is, if its OKAY for them to come here in Canada in spring or summer on a visitor visa? Will it affect the processing of the application? Will it be a wise to stay in their home country until they get their PR?

Hello all,

I am May 28 applicant. My parents have passed Medicals on November 20, 2019. PA is IN PROCESS since then.

Also, I have submitted all the required documents such as PCC, Resume etc by email on Nov. 11, 2019. One of the agents confirmed me that it has been updated in your file.

My parents are planning to come to Canada in May 2020. I am just wondering to know from any of your personal experience can PPR be requested in these four months (Feb 2020-May 2020) ? Should they wait back home until they receive PPR request? I don't want to be in a situation that we book tickets now and then we have cancel the tickets coz of PPR.

Can anyone suggest me from their personal experience what to do in this situation?

hi

what is your In process date as per Ecas?
what is your DM date?
what is your Local VO name?

1. affidavit of birth
2. No
3. you have mention In / Out date ( check stamp on passport if you have)
4. https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/ircc/migration/ircc/english/pdf/kits/forms/imm5562e.pdf
5. All page ( including blank page )
Thank you @robertp

what is your In process date as per Ecas?----There is no date in Ecas. Saw it on Jan 24.
what is your DM date? ----Again, no date there, but I saw it on Jan 24.
what is your Local VO name? Mississauga

For #3, while travelling by road across the border, they didn't have stamps each time when they would cross the border. Just the I94 from USA has date and remaining weekend visits are not marked as they had multiple entry canada visa. Should I be worried about all such dates to be included in travel history?

For #4, apart from IMM5562, the letter says the forms (country-specific forms) should be included. This is what it says:

"Country Specific Requirements: Please refer to the country specific requirements listed for spouses, as these documents are applicable to parents and grandparents. Country specific requirements can be found on our website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/spouse.asp"

At the link, forms are for spouse, so not sure if we use those forms. Should I check via enquiry?

Thank you,

Do they have the visa already? Did they came here before?

Do they have super visa? If so they can visit. Update IRCC when they are here.

Biometrics: Quality of fingerprints

Today I went in to Service Canada to get the biometrics done for my parents. For my dad, after 2 tries they could not get the good quality fingerprints. It was all red for all fingers but they said 5-6 Fingers are still Ok even though system is giving red.
For my mom, 1 came green, 2 yellow and 7 red, and out of 7 red 2-3 would be poor quality.
The agent said he will send it and he put a note explaining age and due to lifetime work etc this is the best possible.

What do you guys think? When would I be able to know if they approve it or want us to repeat and if we need to repeat, what if we are not able to get better than what we have got?
Please share your experiences.

In normal processing speed of CPC-M, your parents must have PPR before May.
If they already have visas, I think there will be no difference for them to come here.
That means even if PPR comes after they are here you can submit passport from Canadian address.
