Hi,
I have a question.

My father's passport has been renewed while his PGP 2019 application is in progress.

How should I notify CIC of new passport? - Should I send them copy of passport via mail (along with a cover letter) or upload it through his online account with details (assuming there is one)?

Thank you !

please update
Passport request: Jan 22, 2020
Final Decision: Feb 27, 2020 Approved

Will CIC send my mother a copy of the COPR? or just use the Counterfoil on her passport to enter Canada?(she does have a 10yr TRV)

thanks guy
They will send the COPR to the PA through the mail, this is needed to land and become PR.

Hello guys,

quick question - my parents file is in process, medical, PCC and bio are done; yesterday, I received a letter from CIC informing that my parents will receive pre-arrival services offered by the Canadian Government. The letter is not addressed to me or my parents, just have my father’s UCI number.
Does this letter indicate that my parents file is approved or is it just a generic letter?

Thank you!

Pre arrival letter is a good sign. It means they have passed eligibility.

All depends what is going on with her PGP. Applying for supervisa can take a month or two. You maybe in a position to just get COPR. If not yes you should apply for a supervisa after your mother gets a new passport.
We are stuck in "in progress" since Septembber, file is in Mexico. I better renew her passport now and apply for the extension - we are already at the 3 month mark for her trip... Thanks!

Hi All
Quick question- I sponsored my parents who have been in Canada since 2016 on super visa. Medicals and all doc completed early dec 2019 but no biometrics request at all. Yesterday we received a letter for mother only to do an RCMP fingerprinting to be sent in 30 days. Is this normal that they didn't ask for my father? Also how come no biometrics?

That’s what I think too coz police officer told me if I get convicted then cic will be informed. I am just worried why sponsorship application is taking too long to get approved. I hope it has nothing to do with my case.

Also CIC agent told me all files are different and require different amount of time for processing so I don’t need to worry coz my file is open and in process with no notes on it.

Just hoping for the best.
Stay strong and order ATIP records via web form it may tell you the reason why the case is delayed. And, it is a very common reply from Agents: the processing takes 24 month, stay patient. Good luck !

Hello everyone my file was received June 17. In october they ask for representative form which was submitted nothing after that. Ircc say application marked complete since Dec 1 . No aor nothing. My father passed away Jan 19 . Updated forms has been sent to IRcc and they received. When can I expect something. Will be almost a year in june 2020
So sorry for your loss, hope the rest of your family will join you in Canada for many happy years together.
