Hi there,

I have landed at a land border on March 24 by doing the flagpole, after that I found several issues that might be problems. I talked this with my friends, but received limited suggestions. I really appreciate if anyone could give your opinions.


1, When I check my IRCC account, the Ecas status still shows application approved. However, based on my search of internet and talk with friends, there should be some update show that my case is complete. I am a little worry about this, is this normal?


2, I tried to login to my IRCC account, and click “link application to this account” in order to link my PR card application (this is my first card of course) to my IRCC account, so that I can track the status on line. However, after I input my information correctly, the system told me “no application found”. What is going on here? Should I allow more days before I can link my application to my account?

3, Before I went to the land border for landing, I called IRCC to book an inland interview. However, no one contact me after have been waiting for three weeks, and then I decided to do the flagpole . My question is, is it necessary to inform IRCC or the inland interview office that I do not need the appointment anymore?

I notice that IRCC said in their website that if you book an inland interview and do not attend it (in my case, no one contact me until now, after the flagpole), they may consider you do not interest in staying in Canada and cancel your permanent residency.

I am worrying what will happen to me if I do not contact them.

Thanks for reading my message, I really appreciate your opinions and suggestions.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Just for some clarification, we were wondering if by "landing at land border" you are referring to going through the process of getting your permanent residency.

"Landing" is generally the term used for this process. We just wanted to make sure that this is what you were referring to as well.

You may want to contact the IRCC Call Centre directly with the questions you have and just to explain your situation to confirm that your process has been completed.

In terms of your PR card, All newly arriving immigrants will receive the PR Card as part of the immigration process.Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will mail your PR Card to you, after the information and photograph on your Confirmation of Permanent Residence document is confirmed by a IRCC official when you arrive in Canada.

If you did not provide your mailing address to IRCC at the point of entry, do so as soon as possible. You can update your address online or you can contact the IRCC Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100.

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.
