Landed on the 26th March 2018 (Toronto), with my wife and 2 children. My wife received an email a few days ago requesting for new photographs, which i couriered off to the Card Processing Center in NS today. Not sure what the reason for rejection of the photograph was, as the PR cards for my son and I were approved today, and we had all photographs taken with the same studio who were extremely professional and knew what they were doing. It could be that the Photograph was damaged in the process.

My worry is that my daughter's application has still not been approved and shows as 'submitted', and I have not received an email on whether I need to resubmit photographs for her PR card.

Has anyone faced a similar issue as well?

I landed on April 12. If my calculation is right, I probably buy a ticket around July ( which will be from the second week of July, starts from 8th). It is safe to order a ticket at that time. The most difficult thing is I don't know whether IRCC requires a photo or not.

Never trust those guys in CIC, they can finish your case faster, also they can put you on hold

Is it normal for the primary applicant to have their PR card approved first? We landed March 24th, and mine was approved yesterday but my husband and son still says submitted... we haven’t received any emails for anything.

I had a similar situation. I called CIC only to find out that my daughter’s profile had our address from back in Jamaica and an old email address. The agent told me they sent the request for new photos for my daughter to the old email address, if I didn’t call I would have waited for months and not gotten any update on her application status, because up to now nothing has changed , it just says Submitted. it’s best to call them to find out if there is any problem with your daughter application.

Not safe!! I gave myself 3 extra weeks (enough time you would think) from when i thought i was going to get my PR card... Last week i got a letter saying i had to re submit my photos. I had to re book my trip and now I'm down $1000 because of it. So i don't recommend lol

If they require new photos IRCC will email you in around 45 days from your application. That's the only correspondence you get from them after your application.

Hi there,

I see where you are coming from however, they do say as one of the specifications for the photos they have to have stamped date on the back and the address of where this photo was taken. Mine i know for sure didn't have this and i believe 100% this is why they were rejected. How does the person processing my card know when this photo was taken and where.... for all they know this isn't me and it could've been take 10 years ago so they have to reject it.

I should've paid more attention to the one she took from my 2 pictures i gave her :( oh well lesson learned!
My photo had all the relevant details stamped/handwritten at the back but it was still rejected :) An ex colleague of mine didn't have anything stamped or handwritten on the back of his photo, just like in your case, and he received his PR card in less than a month :) So I guess we can speculate endlessly why photos are rejected and still not come to a definite conclusion :)

Good luck to us. Hope all of us get our PR cards soon.

For some reason they send a snail mail (physical post) request for children - in our case, we received a physical letter asking to resubmit our kid's photo 10 days after both my spouse and I received separate emails asking to resubmit our photos. If you don't hear anything from them in the next week it would be a good idea to call and check. All the best.

Yoo Baahubali, I respect your patience more than anything else. Just curious to know any progress with your case?
