Why did u decide to leave Canada before getting your PR card?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.
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.
