Hi,

I applied for PR card renewal Nov 15 and have heard nothing from CIC.

Two questions.

1. I had to list around 35 trips for the last 5 years and now cross checking the dates for my citizenship application, I realized that I made two typos (didn't list one trip for 4 days by mistake and another trip that lasted 6 days, but for some reason I put the incorrect return date which is two months later - it is a typo).

In total, I am still well within 1095 max days out of the country requirement (only 585 days out of the country in the last five years and I counted every single exit and entry day, so the online calculator shows even less days that this).

What should I do about these typos?

Should I send a correction letter to explain these typos or just leave it since I am within the requirement?

Will this explanation letter delay the process even further?

Anyone has experience with this?

2. Now I am worried about processing times in general which seem to be a lot longer than ~71 days indicated on the site. CIC hasn't even opened my file yet. What are typical processing times for PR renewal?

My card expires in July but I have a lot of travelling planned already around the summer and September 2018.

Thanks very much
