I'm not currently in Canada so this is actually the most convenient for me, but i was counting on being able to link the aplication or find it on Ecas as soon as i got AOR and i haven't been lucky so far.

Its renewal.
is anyone having problems with Ecas or linking application, i can't seem to fin anything. I already got AOR on email.
Will i just keep getting emails instead of mail?
I'm not currently in Canada so this is actually the most convenient for me, but i was counting on being able to link the aplication or find it on Ecas as soon as i got AOR and i haven't been lucky so far.
I have not linked. I got email for AOR. Rest of the status we can see it in ecas online for DM and Complete stages. After that we would get the card mailed.
So dont bother linking.

ECAS case status check tricks/issues i faced:
Use R number(including letter R) that you have in AoR email's subject to enter as "Application number/case number". THen rest of the details.

The only method above worked for first few days after AOR and UCI was not working to see PR card status.
After few days then uci started showing the application status. When did you get your AOR?

Hey Can anyone help me please, I received a COPR information letter, asking to send a copy of the letter and 1 photo to PR card office near me.
Q- it says to write UCI and name on the back of the photo in the letter whereas photo specification link says to write name, DOB, Photo studio address ? so which one is correct UCI & Name or Name, DOB & photo studio address ? I am sure I cannot fit all the info on the back together given the studio address stamp is quite large ? Anyone that could help that has been in similar situation, would be very helpful. Thanks. Appreciate it.
Applying for your first PR?

Please where do they send these too? Email or online account?. Is the PR card account different, how do I link the application to my account?

Hi everyone! I filed my wife's PR renewal application on December 2020. According to Canada post my application got delivered on 31st Dec 2020. I cannot link my account on GCkey or ecas. Is this normal? Do I get updates on email or by mail?
