PRTD processing time from India

Discussion in 'Permanent Residency Obligations' started by Pjk1, Dec 20, 2015.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  12. Hi

    1. No it is not a requirement, but you should have your PR card before June/16, so you won't need one.
  13. Thnaks PMM bro for you reply but please can you tell me what are the main considerations for a visa officer to issue you a travel document. Thanks a lot.

    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.
  15. 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....
