Hi,

is it possible to resheduale a PR card renewal interview?

My husband got a letter saying that he must pick up his PR card in person in the Etobicoke office on Sept 17, but because we live abroad, its difficult to make this date.

Has anyone had any experience with reschedualling an appointment to pick up the card in person, and if so, how was it done.

Also, on the letter it states he can come for an interview without an appointment but it would not be guarenteed that he would be seen on that day if it was busy.

Anyone know how likely it is to be seen on the same day if you just show up without an appointment?

Thanks, Ruth

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your husband's situation and question with us.

If a person is randomly chosen to pick up their PR card, IRCC will contact them to schedule an appointment. They may reschedule their appointment if needed. However, they must pick up their PR card within 180 days, otherwise they may need to re-apply.

You may want to contact the IRCC Call Centre directly for some information specific to your situation.

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.
