Hi guys,

I've been tracking this thread to see how the timeline goes.

My PR card renewal application was received on June 25th.

I have an upcoming flight booked to visit back home for Nov 3rd.
Seeing that it's been taking well over 90 days, I'm getting hopeless... :(

Note that applying for PRTD is not an option for me as I'll be staying in my home country just about 2 weeks.
Hi, Any updates ? Mine says application received June 25th. I have flight on Nov 19.

Nope... I talked to a call centre agent last Friday and he just said that it's in process. Hopefully what he told me was true... but I haven't seen any new update on ecas nor received AOR.

I would be pretty desperate if they actually don't start processing by the end of this week. I've got less than 4 weeks til my flight now.

I have not received my card yet either.. It says that they received my application on June 18th and they started processing on Sep. 30. I have a flight on Nov. 1 though, hopefully the card arrives by then.. This is so stressful.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving long weekend :)

For many of us, another week of waiting has begun... I wish a speedy processing for everyone!!

p.s. the processing time shown on the website has been reduced to 79 days.

One should not buy ticket unless schedule is fixed or extreme emergency. Nowadays non refundable tickets add to anxiety too. Better to buy ticket a few days before departure scheduled which may b a couple of hundred dollars expensive . Hopefully you will receive within next week as 11 sep applicants were sent cards on October 4,unless your card is sent to CIC local office which adds two/ three weeks
