I applied in April but from the UK, been 10 weeks and no news yet. I understand that if people stand in a queue they can get there's quicker HOWEVER for those that have now been waiting 8/9/10 weeks+ surely they should be made as a priority having waited patiently on the side lines but it appears that with the constant queues at the relevant passport/service centres....their requests are reaching the top of the pile and the rest are simply left to sit and wait.Applied in April for a new passport and nothing yet.
The references or guarantors have not even been contacted yet.
Does that imply the application hasn’t even been started or looked at.
Thats really pathetic in my opinion!I called agent on Friday and she told me that even though the applications are submitted in person at Service Canada location they are still considered "mailed-in" since they send those applications to the processing centers by mail.
Just write it on a piece of paper- that's allFor those who plan to travel by a car, how do you provide proof of travel? Someone mentioned a self declaration form but I couldn't manage to figure out what it exactly is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
