Hello Guys,

I did my landing on Feb 03, 2020 and then I returned back to India on Feb 06, 2020. On Feb 12, 2020 I received a email from IRCC requesting for new set of photos as the old ones did not meet the specifications. I couriered the photos to Sydney, NS card processing center on Feb 21, 2020 via DHL. After that I couldn't get any update regarding the delivery of the photos nor any acknowledgement from IRCC. It has been nearly 2.5 months since my landing and I am very worried about my PR card.

I have not received any update on my CIC account as well. I am also not able to link my PR card application to the account. When I emailed IRCC, they said the photo retake requests sent before Feb 06, 2020 are still being processed so they told they would get back to me in case of any requirements.

Could anyone let me know if this is normal and please guide me how to link my pr cad application to my account. Is it an issue since I left canada in a short span of time after my landing?. I would really appreciate your reply. Thank you.
Why did u decide to leave Canada before getting your PR card?
IRCC doesn’t mail PR cards outside Canada so you should give them a Canadian address and also there should be someone there to pick up your card, now for you to return back to Canada you should apply for a travel document in India or you should make someone courier your PR card to your indian address.
Why are you not able to link your PR card application?
You just select UCI and family name option and enter those details below and make sure your family name is entered exactly same as how it shows in your passport(upper case, lower case, spaces and any dots or commas) if that doesn’t work then call them and find out your PR card application number and try to link it with application number instead of family name.
Also due to the COVID 19 situation Nova Scotia has imposed some restrictions to number of people gathering in a work place so Sydney PR card processing office might be short staffed now that is the reason everyones PR card processing is being delayed, if I were you I would call them and check if they have received photos or not, if they already received your photos then there is nothing we can do but to wait for them to finish the processing and mail your card.
Good Luck

So far I have not heard from the CIC regarding my PR Card (first time) that I landed on March 3, 2020. It is a bit frustrating at this time of pandemic.

@RockingRavi

Thank you very much for your reply. I have given them my friends address during my landing formalities. They are presently at the same address and checking the posts. I had to come back due to my marriage which was in late february. Can I call them from India?. Also, still in my CIC acconunt, the PR card application has not been updated.

I haven’t heard any news directly from CIC regarding issuance of PR cards but I have seen people who landed in the last week of February and later are having delays in getting there PR cards due to the Covid 19 situation

Can we apply for PR after graduation without any work experience? (I am a master student in Canada)

The status is still "submitted" for me.
I am unable to locate the PR card application in my CIC profile. Did you link your application to get to know about the status. I only submitted my COPR to the Immigration Officer at Toronto airport during my landing. And I am unable to link my PR card application to my profile.
