How to Apply for PR Card Renewal?

Posted in PR Card Renewal

Do You Need Urgent Processing of a Permanent Resident Card?

If you are currently in Canada and require an urgent PR card because you are planning to travel outside Canada we can help. You can apply for urgent processing if your card will not be ready before you leave.

In order to qualify for urgent processing, you must be:

  • travelling in the next three months, and
  • returning to Canada on a commercial vehicle, like an airplane, train, boat or bus.

If you are in Canada and you have not applied and still need an urgent PR card we can help.

If Your Travel Date is More Than Three Weeks Away:

  1. Fill out the application form called, applying for a permanent resident card,
  2. Include a photocopy of your proof of travel and proof of payment with your application.

The proof of travel, such as tickets or an itinerary, must show:

  • The dates you will be traveling,
  • Your personal information such as your full name, and
  • Your destination (where you are going).

The proof of payment can be part or full price for your travel. It must show:

  • The date that you paid,
  • The amount paid, and
  • How you paid.

It is important that you have all the information indicated above if you wish to renew your PR card urgently. If you do not send all this information, your application to renew your PR card might not be processed "urgently" but processed normally.

3. On your envelope, write:

Urgent Proof of travel included

It is important to know that processing times are increasing on a daily basis. Even if an application for urgent PR card renewal is filed, there is no guarantee that you will receive this in time of your travel. It is important to ensure that the correct paper work is filed. In addition, it is very important to indicate the reason for the urgency. At Akrami & Associates, we contact the immigration officer and write a thorough submission as to the urgency of the PR card renewal.

PR Card Application Process

Action we take at Akrami & Associates: Obtain the application
for a Permanent Resident Card through CIC's website.

CPC-S process: Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) checks your application. Did you include the fee receipt and is the application complete?

CPC-S process: If yes, application is processed and approved if you meet all the requirements.

CPC-S process: If no, your application is returned. End of process.

CIC Assessment: The appropriate CIC receives the PR card from the production facility.

As you can see based on the chart above, it is extremely important that all necessary relevant documents are included from the start. If it is not, your application will be returned as incomplete. This will cause further delays for you.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
