Self-addressed envelope

Discussion in 'Visitors' started by nicmart, Aug 8, 2012.

  1. Hello, my partner living in Ireland is trying to gather documents to apply for a single entry visa at the Canadian embassy based in UK.
    Now the P227E checklist below mentions to include:

    "Self-addressed envelope to return your passports and documents from EVERYONE who is submitting an application either by mail, drop box or in person."

    Considering she lives in Ireland, how would you suggest she can provide such a thing when mailing in her application? Does she need to get to the UK to buy a prepaid enveloppe or is it just a non pre-paid enveloppe with her name and address on it?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. Can one person please confirm the answer given in the following post:

  3. Hi,

    How are you gonna send your applications? By post mail? I sent my applications to CHC New York thru courier, I used Fedex since it's fast, reliable & they accept passport/s. I included in my applications a money order address to FEDEX and return airway bill that I already filled-up for my self-addressed envelope to return my docs & passport.

  4. The application will be sent by registered mail from Ireland to UK with AnPost services.
    I'm referring to the self-addressed enveloppe one has to include in the application to get their passeport back. Does it need to be prepaid/stamped or is it enough to just put your name and address on it?

    As the applicant is in Ireland, buying a UK prepaid/stamped enveloppe might prove a bit hard to get...
  5. Hi Nicmart,

    I am having the same issue. It says in my email that I need to include a self addressed envelope. No postage is necessary. So I guess I have to just sent plain envleope with my address on it. Have you sent yours yet?
  6. Not yet but I think my partner will send her application with a letter big enough to contain her passeport without postage. After all, it only says "Self-addressed enveloppe", not "Prepaid". Of course, it proves impossible to contact the embassy to ask such questions, no reply after more than a week although request marked urgent :(
  7. Here is the official reply from the embassy:

  8. Is you partner an Irish citizen? if so she doesn't need a travel visa as Ireland is a visit exempt.
  9. No she's not
