Guys landed on Feb 27th. When I logged into my cic it said the status was “update” but when I checked there were no real updates. And then the application status changed to “submitted”. Any body seen this before ?
same situation, you can see document status, it says your application is approved.

Hello,
I landed at Douglas Poe on Mar 24, 2018. I couldn't link the application on CIC.
Should I call them to ask about it?
Thanks!

Landed 15th Feb
Calgary Airport
Could not link to mycic account
Received my PR card in mail today
Hey!
I did my landing on Feb 10, 2018 at the Calgary airport. Till now haven’t heard anything and obviously couldn’t link my application. Called IRCC yesterday and the agent said they have a backlog in their production room and my card won’t be printed till April 30! Wondering how are they sending other cards whereas it is 59 day for me...

Waiting time for new PR card is 57-60 days after landing. If all goes well and there is no additional document request( ex., New photo request), there is a good chance of getting updates between 6th-7th week.

It has been true in my case and 2 of my friends as well.

So they give 30 days to submit new photos but they get to your new photos only after around a month. Also you cannot verify if they received your new photos until they get to processing your new photos. And if they do not receive your new photos within 30 days you have to apply for the PR card again. :confused:

Wondering how are they sending other cards whereas it is 59th day for me. Anyone’s comment from previous experiences will be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Did you send them a case specific enquiry through online form?

Getting back to a previous application on receipt of additional documents depends on the officer who is handling your case. After the documents are received, they are checked and double checked by superiors for approval. Then only, they are accepted.

If in doubt about whether IRCC has received your additional documents, we can always send them a case specific enquiry through online form. But first, we need to make sure that our package was delivered to them. In my case, I've always used Canada Post for sending documents or passports to IRCC offices.

IRCC CPC offices are large volume receivers and they don't collect every package sent to them personally. All our packages go to their mailbox. IRCC representative collects mails every other day. These mails are sorted and passed on to respective case officer. I always cross check with Canada post customer support regarding delivery confirmation, if I don't get confirmation from their tracking page.

If we don't see an update on our application within a week of delivery, we should always send them a case specific enquiry. Sometimes, the application is not updated even after additional documents are successfully delivered till the case officer has checked all docs.

Hope, this information is of help to everyone.

Have a good one.

Jai Mahismati :)

Technically linking of paper applications to CIC account is not for initial PR card. If you call them, they will say the same.
