Request to pay right of permanent residence fee


Hey Guys,

I received a message in my express-entry CIC account requesting me to pay the right to permanent residence fee (RPRF). It also says that payment of fee is required to continue the review of my application.

I was under the impression that RPRF is paid after the application is approved, not sure why CIC is requesting it to process my application further. Thoughts?



Hi @knagpal, Any updates on your application? did you pay the fee and how long did it take for you to get PPR after you paid the PR Fee?

we just received the PR Fee request today so wondering how long does it usually take to get the PPR after this step.



Hey @gondekar.aparna. No updates yet. I paid the fee on Dec 3, 2017, and haven’t received the PPR yet, not sure how long it’s going to take.

I’ll post here when I have an update. Good luck!



Thanks @knagpal, keep me posted, I paid mine on 7th Jan’19


Hey @gondekar.aparna, I just received the “ready for visa” email with instructions to mail the passport for visa stamp.


That’s awesome @knagpal, what was your AOR? Mine is still in background check stage, hopefully soon! :slightly_smiling_face:
