Follow below steps only after you have landed. It gives only 5 attempts in one day.

1) Login to CIC account.
2) Go to section "Link an existing application to this account". Click on "Link application to this account" button.
3) Select category as PR Card
4) Select "Unique Client Identifier (UCI) and Family Name"
5) Fill required details (please make sure capital, small, comma etc.)
6) Provide landing date in "Date you became a permanent resident"
7) Click on search my application.
8) after application searched make sure you submit application else not linked.

However, for some people linking becomes impossible. This is primarily because people put their birth city not as per what is written in your passport. Birth city has to match exactly as in Passport including punctuation marks if any.

Once you have successfully linked your application it will shown you as "Submited" status and once it is ready for dispatch it will go into "Approved" status.

If you receive any photo request then it will not change any status. Regularly check PR card processing time on CIC website as photo request or PR card approval both come in last 5-10 days (i.e if processing time is 63 days then after 55 days you will be able to see some movement.)Hope it will work.
It worked! Thank you so much for the detailed instructions. I was unable to add my child though. He has two extra digits in his UCI.

I had the same status message - 'Application/PRofile updated'. When i clicked, the status changed to 'submitted'. Any idea what's happening?
thanks
some people call it as ghost update. If everything goes fine, You will see another status update in 3-4 days, the application status gets changed to 'Approved', this time you would also receive an email from CIC about status change.

All the best.

Hi Candreams,
Thanks for the response. I have entered place of birth same as in passport still no luck. My kids are US citizens and able to link one but not another.

This is how it's in Passport : CONNECTICUT, U.S.A.
I have the same issue with my child. How were you able to link one?

Hello everyone! I landed in Vancouver on May 4th.
Linked my PR card application the same week.
Now, it still shows 'Submitted' and I can see no update. I haven't received any photo request either.
Is something wrong? Two months have passed and no update

If photos gone wrong, your online status will still be submitted. The only clue is to call IRCC help line, google IRCC help line number and try to get in touch with them on their working hours.

In my last WP extention, by mistake it was documented with spell mistake of Connecticut. While after multiple failures and referring previous applications... i found that it could have been the case.... So tried to link same as WP application form and able to link

Hope it clarifies.

Has anyone who has sent in photo retakes in the month of May yet to received feedback on their application?

My wife's application still shows no progress. My daughter's application on the other hand was approved a few days ago, and her photographs (new) were received 10 days later than my wife's. Raised a CSE 2 weeks ago yet no response from CIC. I am not sure what else I could do...

Hi..we are in the same situation...my photos were delivered on May 28 and spouse’s on June 4...no updates after that...CSE eeply said that they are processing photos from before June 4 and our photos are not in the system yet (which apparently is normal)..not sure what the next steps should be

My wife's photographs were received by the PR Card Processing center on the 16 May, as per the DHL tracking portal. I don't know if I need to resend the photographs and wait another 40-50 days for an update.
