    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    CP perhaps required someone to sign off. Since we've a community mail box (which I absolutely hate after I moved), they will never be able to take signature. So, they leave a note to pick up from the nearest CP location. I forgot to add before that I did not receive my child's old passport...

    This is purely my explanation: Consider IRCC a large company. It has its yearly budget, projects, goals, deliverables, etc. If IRCC achieved its goals (processing of target number of app) in 2020 and the fiscal year is over, the work not finished rolled over to the next year and loses...

    The request for additional doc was made by IRCC thru email on Oct 5, 2022 allowing 60 days to respond. The email came from IRCC.ClientInformation-InformationsClient.IRCC@cic.gc.ca at Case Processing Centre - Sydney. I emailed back with the docs on the following day of Oct 6, 2022. I raised a...

    They asked to re-submit 'Use of Representative Form' with wet signatures along with additional photo IDs. I delared myself as my mom's rep in the application. And I only typed our names in that form originally since the form allowed it.

    January 2022 - Citizenship Applications

    Yes, you're right. But in my mom's case, they asked for additional info on Oct 5 within 60 days which I provided (email) the following day. So, I am desperately waiting to see that they acknowledge the receipt.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    I applied to renew my child's passport in mid-June through a Service Canada Centre. I was told that it would take 3 months. Today I called 1-800-567-6868 and was told the application was approved. However, it has just gone for printing. Printing would take 3 weeks and another week for mailing...

    Honestly, I had no idea about this low number of targets for online app. Had I known before, I would have sent a paper-based app for my mom. It doesn't even make sense when you look at the tracker as most applications seem to be online type.

    Mom's application returned

    When an application is returned, by default, it can be assumed that mistakes have been made from the applicant. And so did I although this is my first returned application. I sat back, went thru the whole application package, residence calculation and all her records and I've come to realize...

    Mom's application returned

    I called again on Friday and surprisingly an agent picked up the phone just after 2 rings. After getting my info, she went back to talk to her supervisor and told me that the non-PR days should have been counted. And if I choose to re-apply, I should include her boarding passes and an...

    Mom's application returned

    Thanks for the answers guys. This is really a BS that your non-PR days don't count even when it says it will as a visitor. We're from Bangladesh which is not a visa-exempt country and each time my mom entered-exited Canada, there was a stamp on her passport. And I know that doesn't mean the...
