PR Travel Document Processing Time (Sydney)

Discussion in 'Visa Offices in Oceana' started by runningwithquills, Jan 1, 2018.

  1. My PR card is expiring Nov 5, 2018, and I will be studying in Australia during that time. I have exams until Nov 15th, and plan to fly back to Canada around Nov 20th. The issue is that I can't apply for a travel document until my PR card has expired, which would only give me 2 weeks for the TD to be processed and issued.

    Does anyone know if the Sydney office would allow me to send in my TD application a couple weeks before my PR card actually expires, in order to ensure that I will have received my passport and TD in time for my intended date of travel?

    P.S. Has anyone applied for the TD through the Sydney office? What is the average processing time?

    Thanks in advance!
  2. I would also love to hear from anyone with info about PRTD processing times in Sydney, Australia. I landed on 02-Dec-2017 but only got an email today saying my card application was submitted.. thats over 6 weeks after landing!!! I wanted to travel home in a few weeks time but the PR card obviously won't be ready. My issue is I'm only going home for 3 weeks and I don't know if the Sydney VAC will give me a PRTD in that timeframe. Anyone with experience please reply! Thank you. I have emailed them asking for a time to process..
