Hello,
I have received a mail from CIC asking to pick up PR card in person on 10 Mar (appointment date). However, my mother is in India and will need a PRTD to arrive, which I believe will take atleast 2 to 3 months to get. In that case, she will miss the appointment on 10 Mar. It says in the mail that PR card can be picked up within 180 days.

What do I need to reschedule the appointment closer to the date that she arrives? Right now, I dont know when she will be able to arrive since we dont have the PRTD in hand yet.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It is best that you contact IRCC using their web form directly for advice on how to proceed. It may also be useful to note that processing time does not include the wait time before they receive the application, and starts once they receive a completed application. You may find it helpful to check processing times using the calculator on the IRCC website.


You may also want to speak to a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer for advice about travelling back to Canada without a valid PR card.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.


Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org Team
