Permanent Resident (PR) inland applicants who are on their final stages of application are receiving emails and/or calls recently for a telephone interview to activate their permanent residency. Is it a scam or not? good news! it's not. Due to high volume of traffic at any of Canada's land borders, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) launched this telephone interview to activate your permanent residency and may help lessen the work volume at the said borders.
Most inland applicants that will be invited for a telephone interview are those that live far from the border or who live in remote places and far from an IRCC landing office. Before the telephone interview you need to provide the following: your name, Unique Client Identification (UCI), application number, address, telephone number, and your confirmation of permanent residency (COPR) form. During the interview you will be ask questions like charges or convictions from any country, refusals of entry to Canada or have you been ordered to leave Canada, any dependent children not listed on your application and corrections of any misspelled information; then the interviewee will ask you to put NO and your initials on those questions found on your COPR. You will then sign your COPR and instructed to wait for an email for further steps. You have to send that signed COPR to them (information will be on that email) and then they will countersign and you will be registered as permanent resident of Canada, your PR card will be on the mail within 60 days.
The other two ways of validating your permanent residency are as follows:
If you already live in Canada, you have two options to become a permanent resident:
1. You can make an appointment at one of IRCC offices near where you live in Canada. To do this, contact them by using this Web form.If your permanent resident visa (or one of your family’s) expires in two months or less, please indicate that you need urgent processing.
2. If you are not able to make an appointment as set out above, you may leave Canada and return through an international airport or a Canadian land border.When you arrive, an IRCC officer will interview you, and grant you entry into Canada based on the information in your visa.
In either case, you will have to show the officer:
You will do these procedures at the first place you arrive in Canada. If you are travelling by air, make sure you have time before any connecting flight or other travel.
If you choose to leave and re-enter Canada at a land border, especially during the peak periods of weekends and holidays, you may have a long wait time for service.
To find the land border closest to you, see the Canada Border Service Agency website.
Good luck to all applicants and congratulations to the new permanent residents of Canada!
