Hello,
I have sent the application to renew my mom's card over a month ago and when I check the "application status" it tells me that the application does not exit.

I have tried to call the Immigration but I am getting disconnected every time.
How long does it take for the application to start?

I sent the application Sept 3, 2021 so when will they start processing.
I know it is going to take around 140 days but I just want to confirm that the application has been received.
Thank you

Hi
thank you for your answers.
So there is no way to check if it was received or not?
My mom RP card expires in April. She wants to go to Europe as her sister is not well. So, if she goes back and her card is expired while she is there and I already sent the app how can she come back to Canada?

She need to file an application called Travel Document. You need application IMM 5524. But this application can only be filed outside of Canada at the nearest Canadian diplomatic mission (what every your country your mom is going to in Europe. Under Covid this is tricky because of most Embassies are not excepting walk-ins. Worth a try if she is going for at least 3 weeks.

Hello again.
it has been more than 3 months now since I sent the documents.
I have tried to call them and I get disconnected. Also forums provides a general message if situation is not urgent.
Should I resend all the documents and send it by registered mail. (before I sent only by regular later, as I thought we have time).
Please help what to do.

You can resend it, it does not hurt at all. Tracking helps but IRCC will not use your tracking info to find your application. The mailroom in IRCC is a big black hole. I would pay $100 to see a photo of this place!

Here is what I would do:

1. File a new application but this time file for urgent reasons
2. Yes, keep tracking it's a lot better
3. Waite.........

Keep your eyes on the tracking times. Immigroup has data if times are getting better or worst, click here
