Hi guys, Just one curiosity came up to my mind. What are the chances for us to be requested to resend the new photos for the initial PR card? Is it commonly happening or not really?

They are sending photo requests for literally no reasons. many applicant's photos including mine were absolutely fine but we still got it.

I landed on June 26th Got no response so I called CIC on August 28 and then they said I have to resend the photos. I took new pictures and sent it to CIC. They received my new images on September 4th. I waited so long, and after a couple of weeks when I called CIC, they told that my pr card had been sent for production. But on October 1, 2018, I got another email from CIC to resend the photos for the second time. I posted the second set of pictures on October 3rd, and it reached CIC on October 5, 2018. Today when I called CIC they said that they are working on files the received on September 24, 2018.
1. If they won't process by October 30, 2018, will it affect my PR status?
2. Had anyone undergone the same circumstances?

Hello Altruists,

I have done my landing on 10-DEC-2018 and will have to go out of Canada on 17-FEB-2019. Currently, the PR Card processing time is 54 Days according to CIC website. Can I expect My PR Card will be arrived by 2-FEB-2019 which is exactly 54 days from 10-DEC-2018? or is there any way to expedite the process, as I have to leave Canada on 17-FEB-2019?

Thanks in advance.
To qualify for urgent permanent resident (PR) card processing, you must be travelling within the next three months due to:

  • a job opportunity
  • your own serious illness
  • the death of a family member
  • work related to your current job
  • the serious illness of a family member
More information can be found here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/new-immigrants/pr-card/apply-renew-replace/urgent.html

In your case, unless it's emergency, they won't do anything.. You can apply for PRTD from outside Canada provided you have sufficient time.Else , come back through land route which may not be feasible if you are travelling outside North America..

If you don't get Photo request, then you may have chance of getting your PR card on time..but remember that holidays also will cut into your processing time.

thanks for your reply. So, 54 days means 54 working days. Am I correct?

You should definitely get it this week. Mine was approved on Dec 11 and I got it on Dec 14 in Etobicoke.

I hope you have better luck .... we have 3 PR applications , 2 of them approved but 3rd one has photo request ... when I called CIC they told me the photo request sent on 23 Nov by mail ( because the application was not linked on my account) .... until now I did NOT receive this mail.... but I sent the photos according to the this call and I asked them to send me an e-mail.
I DON'T know what would happen if I didn't call CIC
Guys,
Landed - 9th oct
Approved 1 - 8th dec
Approved 2 - 12th dec

Webform request for status - 15dec
Ghost update - 17th dec for 3rd applicant

This means no photo request?

Do i need to call IRCC?

Approved PR card has not delivered yet.
