I will be staying back in Mumbai, India for only a week and do not have the PR card as yet, photo retake issues. Do I have to visit VFS personally or I can send my passport from Canada to an agent and get the PRTD done and get the passport back?

You have to visit the VFS personally and PRTD cannot be obtained before leaving Canada. You only have 3 options either wait for your PR Card or be ready to wait in India for a month to get PRTD or if you have US visa then you can enter through private vehicles from US border using your COPR.

Hi,

I am from India and holding Indian Passport. I became PR in last December and came back to India to complete notice period to my employer. My PR card is delivered to my cousin's place in Canada. Now I am planning to back in next couple of month and going to apply for PRTD. My question is whether the PRTD is given with minimum validity of 6 months or the tentative travel date plays a role in it?

I will be applying from Bangalore VFS. How long does it take typically from there?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi guys submitted passports for wife kid and me for PRTD on 15th April. it reached Bangalore on 16th and processing has started. Any idea how much time does it take for PRTD to be stamped and passports returned? Had indicated urgency since I had to travel to US over this weekend for work.. Now that seems unlikely. I was told that it will be delivered by 25th. Any thoughts?

Hello everyone, my husband and I applied for PRTD at VFS Bengaluru on Apr 22. We both work as managers in Canada and are expected to report to work on May 13 (return flight booked for May 12). There is no update on our application. What do I do now?

Would encourage you to get your cousin to courier your PR card to you. Then you have control over the situation and don’t have to go through the hassle of getting PRTD and wondering how long it will take to get processed.

I am writing my experience as this forum helped me a lot
Profile: I did soft landing in Canada on July 16, 2019 and came back within a week to India.
- Applied for PRTD at VFS Hyderabad on July 25, 2019
- Application reached Visa Office Bangalore on July 26, 2019
- Passport dispatched from Visa office August 5, 2019
- Passport received on August 6, 2019

While applying PRTD, I didn't give the cover letter stating the urgency that I would be traveling in 3 weeks. I was nervous during the whole time and also raised a query via webform and email to the IRCC office. Didn't get any reply but received the passport within 10 days

Can anyone please any example of covering letter than explains the requirement of PRTD ?

Also, if anyone can answer following questions, it will be really helpful.

1. Processing time in India to get PRTD ?
2. What are the documents required to get PRTD ?
3. Any chance of rejection in getting PRTD ?
4. If PRTD is issued or I applied for PRTD as single and there is change in marital status after that, will that cause any issue?
5. Can I book ticket only after getting PRTD ?
6. Is it fine to use PRTD even if PR card is received (with the help of my cousin from Canada to India) before I board the flight? Reason behind asking this is that I might have booked tickets using PRTD considering that is required to book the ticket.

PS: I'm planning to do soft landing from India in October and stay in Canada for 10 days.

Can I travel prior to expiration of the initial visa that was stamped along with the COPR document? I have to get back from india to canada and don't have enough time to wait for PRTD?
