Hi chella99,

Thank you for your detailed reply. I am not an expert but i think that statement "Your PR card has been approved" means they have accepted our circumstances for not complying residence obligation. In my case, I authorized my lawyer to communicate with IRCC through their email and mailing address by submitting use of representative form to IRCC, therefore, IRCC will not send my PR card to my lawyer address and they will book an appointment for me in to pick them in person. Due to COVID19 pandemic, IRCC local offices are working with limited capacity and our appointment for card picking may be in waiting que. Let's wait and see.

Please keep on posted progress in your case as i will also do periodically.

Regards,
Yes "Your PR card has been approved" does indeed mean there has been a decision. However, in non-pademic times, the invitation to pick up the PR Card is usually an attempt to confirm that the applicant is indeed in Canada (as you are supposed to be in Canada when you renew your PR Card).

Dear Moon,

I did not follow up this post for sometime and thanks for your response and the encouraging words. I do hope so, as you have expressed, in my case..

But considering that my application was lodged on May 1, 2019, don't you think, even factoring for the unique case and the Covid 19 situation, it has been exceptionally long for IRCC to respond to me ??

I am still awaiting to hear from IRCC on the next course of action and have not so far received any mail or email, after the aforesaid one and that too, was only in response to my webform enquiry and not the one on its own from IRCC. The response was dated Sep 2, 2020 and even if one considers from that date, the time taken is too much and hence, I am left wondering as to what to expect and when to expect from IRCC ! Hope for the best !!

Also, I would like to have views from all whether I can request IRCC to send the renewed card by post instead of calling for a pickup, considering the extremely tense Covid 19 situation.

Views from you and others will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Dear Chella99,

Is there any progress in your case. I am still waiting for communication from CIC for card pick up.

Hi Riley,
Thanks.
U have given contact details for the group to be contacted for assistance. Is it a paid service and if so, what are the terms ?

Also, is there any way to call and speak to IRCC from abroad ?

thanks

Dear Moon,

Good to hear from U..

Absolutely no response and I am really exasperated since more than 2 years have passed. Even accounting for Covid blues, this is an exceptionally delayed decision.

In response to my webform enquiry, they have replied that the info given by me is not adequate. I was quite zapped as I had given everything. I feel sometimes, too much of the autopilot mode is dangerous and prevents the officials from seeing more closely the unique circumstances of each case.

Also, I wish to know whether I should apply independently for PRTD, even before receiving any intimation from IRCC. If I succeed in getting the PRTD, I can reach Canada and possibly meet IRCC officials. Do you think this is possible ?

I am requesting your self as well as all other members, what should I do now and how can I get the matter resolved with IRCC, one way or the other.

Can I know what is the update on your card ??

Thanks.

Dear Riley and others,


Absolutely no response from IRCC and I am really exasperated since more than 2 years have passed. Even accounting for Covid blues, this is an exceptionally delayed decision.

At my first web enquiry in Sep 2020, IRCC had sent a email which I had quoted verbatim earlier. In essence, it stated that your application has been approved and that we will communicate with you on documents to be brought in for a pickup. Since then, I have not received any mail or email from IRCC.

In response to my webform enquiry just a few days back, they have replied that the info given by me is not adequate. I was quite zapped as I had given everything. I feel sometimes, too much of the autopilot mode is dangerous and prevents the officials from seeing more closely the unique circumstances of each case.

Also, I wish to know whether I should apply independently for PRTD, even before receiving any intimation from IRCC. If I succeed in getting the PRTD, I can reach Canada and possibly meet IRCC officials. Do you think this is possible ? Can I authorize anyone else in writing to pick up the card, on my behalf ? In such a case, what will be the documentation, process, time frame, etc. etc. ?

I am requesting your self as well as all other members, as to what should I do now and how can I get the matter resolved with IRCC, one way or the other.


Thanks.

Dear Chellamani,

Thank you for updating circumstances at your end. In my case, my lawyer has advised me to wait for IRCC official communication for card pick up. After having this on hand, chances of success for getting PRTD approval will be higher than without it.

Sure, I will keep you updated progress at my end.

Regards,

Moon

If you mean Immigroup yes, we charge money. But it depends upon the service. Are you just looking for assistance dealing with IRCC?

This https://www.immigroup.com/news/how-call-citizenship-and-immigration-canada-outside-canada hasn't been updated in a while so I don't know how current it is.

Generally, the government doesn't want you to call from overseas, and wants you to fill out the webform.
