My passports have reached Ottawa yesterday. ECAS says Decision Made. Can seniors please advise, how long would CIC take to stamp the PR visa and send the passports back?

Unless you provided evidence that you needed it expedited (e.g., previously scheduled travel) the normal time is 4-8 weeks.

They took about 2 weeks in my case, but others have reported it taking considerably longer. It seems like it can be between 2-9 weeks, which of course is quite a wide range.

Just checked trackitt for a July applicant, who submitted his passport on 28th May, received it today. It's less than 2 weeks. Not sure, how the CIC process is working for receiving passports.

Yeah...some people seem to be getting them back real quick. Not sure how they process passports for stamping. I have sent mine 3 weeks back...have not got it back yet.

I am just wondering, if it would be a good idea to write to them and figure out what is happening.

Hi Tedec.

I wonder if you already received your passports back from CIC-Ottawa. If so, how long it took?

Thank you for keeping us posted.

Best of luck.
