Hi all,

I applied for Passport renewal at BLS Ottawa on 9th Oct (timeline below).

9 October: Submitted application for passport renewal.
21 October: Received email about initiation of police verification.
2 November: Police verification completed (parents in India provided required docs)

Status as of 17th November: Passport application is under review at Indian Embassy/Consulate

Its been over 2 weeks since completion of police verification and passport is still not sent for printing. I am a lil desperate as I have tickets booked for India on 11 December.
Is there an email id or contact number to get a more specific update?

My passport renewal application status changed from 'Passport has been printed' to 'Passport has been printed and will be delivered shortly' last night (30 November)
It then changed to 'Passport has been handed over to OSP executive for further dispatch to applicant' this morning (1 December).

Any idea how long it takes for passport to be delivered after this status?

Hi Asinght,

I am on a WP so sent my attested WP copy after confirming with BLS. Did not send anything original other than my passport.
And I already had some passport photos from 2 months back from US where I got transfered from.

Thanks. Am not able to get in touch with BLS - the phone number is "not available" - any other contact information you can suggest?
