My wife sent her passport to New Delhi on June 7. But now we need passport back to make a copy of Singapore Entry / Exit pages, Singapore police is asking for those pages before they send Police Certificate to New Delhi.
Could u please tell us the best way to request passport from New Delhi . Is it via Email , Mail or letter ?
For all those in your situation, who may be thinking about sending your passport across the border via mail, I would like to share my story. I have the first hand experience of getting penalized for this. I am a PR, but before this I was on a work visa and before that, a student. In order to get a work visa and then PR, I had sent my passport to Buffalo and Los Angeles via Canada Post for stamping of work visa and PR visa. This is standard procedure and CIC had advised me to do so. But recently, my Indian passport expired and when I sent it to CGI-Vancouver to get a new Passport, they imposed a fine on me for the violation of the Indian Passport Act. I had to pay $220 ($110 for each time I sent the passport via mail). When I tried to tell them that CIC had asked me to do so, they said "Well, you can discuss your case with them if you like".
It was the matter of my passport and I have to plan to travel back home for my sister's wedding, so I didn't wanna take any chances. So I ended up paying the fine and now my new Passport application is being processed (hopefully).
I am not suggesting one way or the other. I just wanted to share my story.
