    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    Yes they told me that different offices process differently. Some charge the credit card at the start of the processing, and some are charging the fee at the very end.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    You can send both applications together. Make sure to binder them separately, so that they don't get messed up. What I did -- I put application for myself and my husband in separate white envelopes and then I put both envelopes into one Xpresspost envelope. I don't think anyone understands what...

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    Life is unpredictable, but the accident was his fault. This is a reminder that rules, especially traffic rules exist for a reason. He decided to play a Russian roulette game with breaking the rules and got his reward. I have no compassion for him if he is deported.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    My file was created on Sep 25th. And absolutely NOTHING since then. They were supposed to scan the documents and upload into the system, but haven't even done this. So there is absolutely no guarantees. I was fed up, so filed a complaint on Passport Services today.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    Hey! I am in the same boat with you! App Sent Sep 14, 2020 App Delivered Sep 15, 2020 NO update since then, I called them twice already. They said that my file is in review (it has been in review since Sep 25th), and can't confirm when they will complete due to delays. This is so frustrating.

    Taxes not filed in last 5 years, citizenship eligibility

    That's why it is good to file tax returns even if you don't have the income. That might not be a problem, but IRCC might require additional info from you given that your income information is missing from CRA on particular year. I would pro-actively include affidavit with your application...
