Hi Guys,

I am an inland principal applicant and have two dependents outside of Canada.

I received two emails of PR confirmations for me and my wife, but not for the child. I have responded to one email for me with the details requested for the Principal applicant and dependents but not for the wife.

Today I received an email to sign in to the portal and confirm the details and upload photos for the PR card.

In the portal in the declaration it says, I need to confirm on behalf of my family that they are in Canada.
What do I need to do in this situation, my family is not in Canada and it says I need to confirm this in 7 days.

Am I missing anything here?

Appreciate your help, thank you.

Hey Guys, Today I received the PR Confirmation email again From Etobicoke saying the previous email had wrong UCI. But I checked the previous UCI was correct. so I am confused now since I had already received PR Portal login & I submitted my address, photo on the same. Also my outland dependent submitted their Passport for stamping. Why would they resend it ? does anyone has gone through similar experience ? and what should I do?

Hello Friends - Like most of the applicants here, I am also in the same situation. Inland Main applicant and Outland dependents. I have received two portal emails today one for me and one for my spouse. Since my spouse is in India she should have received PPR

Should I reply to the portal email telling my dependents are in India and they need PPR letter?
I have travel plans to India next month, Can I request them to issue PPR for me as well?. All the family members passport can get stamped and land together in canada.

if someone went through this process, can you please guide me here

Dependents got their passport stamped outside Canada but Principal Applicant in Canada still waiting for ECOPR.

Can dependents travel to Canada without Principal Applicant having the ECOPR?

Did you get answers for this ?

Yes .. our consultant had said that many applicants (dependants) had received their ppr under the main applicant's name and everything went fine (same as my case), so no worries :)

Would you mind telling me what was the expiry date of the ECOPR that your back home spouse got ?

Were the ECOPR validity period for both of you same ?

Hi Guys,

Today I got my eCoPR + another email - "Congratulations! You are now a permanent resident of Canada!".

There is no update/progress on the outland dependent PPR. How long it may take to get the PPR?

Anyone in the same situation? A little bit worried now.
