Considered approved on the day it turns to approved on the system..and that's presumably when they mail it...

I'm not aware of how they work but I assume the card won't be mailed on the exact same day it's printed...
Then in this case, it would be mailed 2/26... I would give it a week?

Thanks so much! Sorry I was just nervous wrecking about if I can finally receive the card then just pack up and move.

Anyone landed on or around January 16th 2019 got their card approved ?. I haven’t received any ghost updates, approval or any emails asking for photo submission either. Can anyone please inform me if the photo submission request comes by postal mail at the address provided when you land or do they send an email or does it come to the cic account. Thank you

When I called CIC yesterday, they said they were processing applications as of January 6th 2019. My photo request came to my email. I don't think it will go to your CIC account. My CIC account doesn't say anything about photos even though I had a photo request. I believe some people received photo request in mail.

Hi, I landed on the 15th. Received a ghost update yesterday after I called them to check the status. The representative told me that she would inform the respective office as the application had crossed the 41 day processing time. Hoping to receive an approval today.

Me and my husband landed on January 16th on Niagara. Received a ghost update yesterday. Raised CSE to check the status and received a response today that card was approved and sent for production :)

How do you raise a CSE? Is it the same as the web form request?

Folks,

I have a question regarding photos for PR card processing, could someone please clarify?

I submitted 2 photos for my copr, when I received my copr one photo was affixed on the copr and the other one was returned. This being the case do we have to submit the photos again when PR card is applied during landing?

Thank you!!

My logical opinion: Photos have to be compliant the day they process your card as well.. So, technically if you got your photos done > 6 months, they become non-compliant when they process. I think to stay safe submit fresh photos while landing if you are landing >4-5 months after date on the photos coz it takes them 40-50 days to do it

basically from what i have understood is that they process based on the submission date of the photos. so in the month of Feb they cleared Dec,2018 backlog. and now ,ie today , as per the update posted here, they are working on photos send on Jan 22.. if thats the case then i hope they can clear Jan fast .
