I have received a letter notifying me to present myself with a list of documents to verify my PR status /pick up card at an IRCC office. There is a specific date and time they have requested me to go on the letter. Is it possible I can go 1 day early to collect it or it has to be on the day on the letter or 180 days after?

They asked me to pick up the card on 31 July but I am travelling on 30th July thus off by 1 day. Would they give the card 1 day early?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this situation.

You can find some information in our Settlement.Org I have received a letter to pick up my PR Card. What should I do? article.

You can also find some information on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website in the Will I get my permanent resident card by mail? section.

Here is an excerpt,

If you cannot go to your appointment, you can reschedule it with the local office. If you do not pick up your card within 180 days, we will destroy it and you will have to re-apply.



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.
