Hi all,
Starting this new thread to have the PRC application updates of those who had submitted the application in 2019. You can share, update, get informed about the application timelines and processing progress.

We had a great experience with the similar thread we had for 2018 (https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/permanent-resident-renewal-timeline-2018.557445/) . I believe, the 2018 thread is a good reference for the timelines and the processing exception cases.

All the best to the 2019 PRC Renewal applicants.

Me and my husband both got a decision made today. Here is the timeline for applications:

  1. We received your application for a permanent resident card on January 7, 2019.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on January 31, 2019.
  3. We started processing your application on January 31, 2019.
Good luck to everyone

Hi @Ssra,
Congrats to both you and husband.

Seems like not too many people are submitting their application around the holidays. It's surprising, I thought my own would be very delayed as the offices would probably be closed often. Our was received on Dec 13th and we had the new one Jan 24th, the latest timeline from Ssra make it look like they got it down to under a month, impressive.

Yeah! @eblend looks like if all the required forms and photos are sent in right format then it is really quick process. That’s a little thing people could be careful about, especially pics. It’s better to get them clicked by people who are specialized and have experience in clicking pics for PR card

I just think, Ssra's was a lucky and special case :) ... Because , even the Urgent applications take that many days. So the normal would be more.
And yes, though IRCC has speed up now to 58 days, Ssra's case was super speed.

So today I got an email confirming receipt of application.

They got it on Dec 31st.

It’s annoying that it took that long to just say they’ve received it tbh

After that, how long normally till they update status on eCAS???

Congrats.
ECAS update will be on next day. (As it is updated daily once.)
But you can link your application your myCIC account. There you'd be able to see the application sooner.

*I tried many times but finally I used the entry option Last name Surname and DOB.
Your application number is on the email you received on top and starts with R plus 9 digits. Use of options I tried several times with UCI and always shows not received or found.
