Hello,
Can any one please share the PRTD processing time for application submitted in India? I need to travel for a 2 weeks vacation before my new PR Card arrives. Hence need to get a PRTD before I can return. Wanted to know how long it will take.

I believe my case should not be complex, as I became PR on Nov 08 the and is applying for PRTD as soon as I reached. And my return date back to Canada is in Jan. I am concerned to see if PRTD will be issued within 2 weeks, else I will have to extend my Leave.

Appreciate your help.

prtd processing time is actually 10-15 days
but i didnt see even 1 case who got it in time.
it takes few months.
its a risk to leave canada before u get a pr card.

Hey PJK1

I am in a similar situation as yours , I landed on 9th Nov and still waiting for the PR card. Though I need to travel back to India for some urgent personal work for a week. Hence I am thinking of applying for PRTD incase I come back, can you please tell what is the scenario in your case and are you able to apply for PRTD , if yes then how much time did it take for your application to complete ?

Please reply, I am in a confusing state i.e. whether to go for PRTD or not.

Thanks

Hi,
Did you apply PRTD thru VFS In-Person, Or you send courier to VFS Delhi?

1. No it is not a requirement, but you should have your PR card before June/16, so you won't need one.

1. That you are meeting your residence requirement, or will be able to if you have been "landed" less than 5 years.
2. If you don't meet your residence requirements, if there are any Humanitarian and Compassionate reasons why the PRTD should be issued.

I applied on the 19th of Jan, my case is a bit more complex. PR card expired in 2013(was removed as minor and now am applying right after turning 18).

Lets see how much time It'll take....
