Did u receive message e mail or by post? I wonder why did u not submit passport copies with application. But since u were here for sufficient number of days,u need not worry.It will be soon as your case is already under process.
I did submit passport copies, but not all pages I believe. I have also submitted an urgent case request considering I have a flight booked for Oct 14th. So fingers crossed

NOTE: I have responded at length to your query in the SR topic. See:

IRCC is questioning your account of actual presence in Canada during the relevant five years (June 4, 2013 to June 3, 2018), and is requesting documentation to corroborate (prove) your travel history, residence, and thus also your presence in Canada.

Hello Everyone ,
I sent my card for renewal on June 4th 2018 and the processing time was around 111 days. I didnt get any news till September 17th 2018. On 17th they updated my account that they sent me AOR.
(They didnt send the AOR on mail but it was just on my account saying they started processing ).
On september 18th In process changed to Decision Made.
And today I received an email to check my account. My account changed to Complete and they send my Card on 21 September by mail. Any idea how long I might receive the Card as I want to book my tickets?
Note.I know the processing time in website says 86 days but thats not 100% accurate as per CIC agent. Mine took More than 100 days. 0
Thanks in Advance

June 7 applicant. Got my application returned yesterday due to incorrect photos. Will resend the application out again today
Hi Vishalv
Bad news, even my application is rejected due to incorrect photos. Can you please explain me whats the next procedure.
Do i need to take the new photos and return with old application or
Do i need to fill the entire application again .

Did you fill the entire application again and resend or just added the new photos with old application.
I am confused now.
I have already booked my international flight for 13 November and there is no way now i can get my card before that. i m thinking to post as urgent now.

How did u know this ? ECAS or email or postal? I am also seeing App Received for almost 10 days and wonder if I would also be sent such info. Did the ECAS show receipt of app or a sudden letter? Of course you have to send updated app ( 5 year data from the date of new app) with new photos etc. Use good professional photographer (not Wallmart SDM types).

They returned my application via postal service. and i did not get any email or update on ECAS . So now i will resend my application and it will go back in the queue for processing.

When you received the returned application by mail, you must have seen a letter enclosed in it explaining why your application was returned. Make sure you include this letter when you resend your application.
Make sure you update the application form with all the updated details including your employment history, address details and also change the date of submission to the date when you will mail the application.
Take the PR photo specification document to the photographer & inform them to take the photos as per the document specification.

The current PR card processing times is around 86 days. You can include a letter explaining that you have booked a flight by November 13 & the reason for the flights. Additionally, attach the corresponding flight ticket copies. There is still no guarantee that your PR card will be processed urgently. But it is worth a try. Good luck !!!

Hi Hargobinder, sorry about the returned application. But see if you can sent it as urgent and just make sure all your info in the forms are updated.
