Giving up waiting the result of pr card renewal application still not in progress, I had to send a urgent application by registered mail as following their instructions, which was delivered in their PO box on July.23, 2014.

Problem is I cannot check the status of my application by CIC online.

After I tried to call CIC office several times I succeeded in contacting them, who told me that it has not been opened yet and didn’t know when it will be.

I have to leave Canada on August. 15.

Is it possible for them to open it and send pr card before Aug.15?

Moreover, if I leave without pr card, do I have to apply again when I return, b/c their website mentions that pr card will be not sent outside Canada?

Any relative comment will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

We can appreciate that this would be concerning you.

You may be able to find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org Do I really need a PR card to travel back to Canada? article.

Some of our users have also reported that when their PR card was sent to their Canadian address after they had left, they were able to have a trustworthy family member or friend send it to them via a secure method outside of Canada.

However, it is important to note that if you are outside Canada and you would like your friend or family member to send it to you, it is important that you are aware of therisks of it being misplaced or possibly seized.

You may need to try and contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre again to find out what your options are at this point.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
