Hi Guys..

Need some guidance here on my case.

Me and my wife landed at Toronto Pearson Airport - 25th Jan, 2018.
I gave my colleagues address who stays in canada during our landing for the PR card.
We returned back to India on - 1st Feb, 2018.

I received an email hour back for new photos - 07th March, 2018.

I have only received the email till now, and there has been no update/email for my wife's application.
I am currently in India. How do I send them the photographs ? Courier(Fedex) ? or Govt. post ?
Is it fine, if I send them the photos from outside canada ? Please help with your experience and suggestions.

Sorry Guys,

Even though I am confused until now. Best day for now, just checked my mail box and found my "PR CARD" :):):). So happy... no more stress.











Hello Everyone,

I am bit confused about the whole process of 1st time PR card. I finished my landing at fort-Erie bridge on Jan 23rd 2018. I didnt receive any mail or email to send photos until now. At the same time, whenever I try to access information about my pr card application either thru CIC - my application status or CIC login and then try to link my application to my cic profile - both provide the same result - we are unable to locate your file. When I called CIC they said - we received your landing papers and processing your PR card, everything is fine.

Should I do anything different?

Aren't photos requested for everyone?
Should I wait until the processing time - 58 days - then escalate it?


Any suggestions?


My timeline:

File submitted: 8th Sep 2017
PPR: Dec 20th
Passport sent: Dec 21
Passport received by ottawa: Dec 22
Passport returned: Today: Jan 22
Landing done : Jan 23rd 2018

Got photo request today. Landed 29th Jan. Do they send photo requests to everybody by default? Not sure what's wrong with my photo. Even if I take new photos they are going to look pretty much same specification wise. Duh!

I had my landing completed on 27th Jan. Today I received an email stating that they would need another photograph.
Typically, how long does it take from this step to receive the pr cards?

I have the same question. I double checked my photos with a scale. I have no clue how they could reject my photos. Doesn't make sense.

There are other things with effects it for example were you wearing light colour cloths? Were you smiling in the picture?

Timings may be different... somebody may land after you and get approval before you. This may happen for several reasons, e.g. your POE is slower than another to send the request, the immigration employee who is validating your request is slower than another, they may not find your pics, etc.

It's like at the grocery store... if you enter a checkout lane, you may get out of it much after people who entered a different lane after you.

Waiting for 45-50 days before an approval is still considered normal time. If you were waiting 60 or more days, that would definitely be anomalous.

Make sure your PR card application is linked to your account so that you can check yourself if the card is approved and you should also get email notifications that way. :)
