Default PR Cards expired - refusing boarding of airplane

Some friends of ours are travelling back to the UK on Friday without in-date PR Cards. Apparently they expired, applied for new ones "months ago" (whatever that means) and haven't heard back since. Does anyone know of actual real live cases where people/families have been refused boarding of their flight back to Canada? The mother, who has been doing all the chasing also seems to think a PRTD document takes about 6 weeks to acquire and they're only going for 4 weeks. They fly on Friday!

correct...without a valid PR card they will not be allowed to board the plane. We had a member last year with the same problem.

my daughter applied for her PR renewal last October...she is still waiting. Apart from being able to go to the US by road (she’s a USC)...she is stuck in Candaland.

Yes. I know of someone who was stranded in the Dominican Republic after being refused boarding. Thread about it here somewhere.

You can have PR renewal expedited, ask your MP. You can also enter via the US by land with an expired card, that's another way around it.

Yes I know people who've been denied boarding. It's PRTD or return via the land border with COPR, ID and proof you applied for your PRC.

Processing time is currently advertised 99 days. The advertised time has been accurate for my renewals. Unless they have changed over the last few months the tracking system is useless as nothing is recorded until they start work on it and then it only takes a few days anyway. My last one was delivered to me a few days after there was no record of it in their system - but the advertised processing time was bang on.

Maybe some problem with it?

Is the 6 weeks for a PRTD correct? The hubby is apparently saying he's not bothered if they let him back or not and he'd be happy to stay in the UK....

It's a bit sad really. Wifey seems happy here but hubby not so much. But either way, is their only option to fly to Seattle and somehow take the land border?

The time it takes depends on the Visa Office processing the Application plus how complex/straightforward the Application is.

I don't think their situation is complicated. They've been in Canada for over 5 years and only had holiday time out of the country. I think it's simply the PR Cards haven't been issued in time. Bu all accounts (Facebook-wise) they're having a good time back in the UK so doesn't seem to be bothering them too much!
