Hello, I sent my mail application to Gatineau and it was received in Ottawa on the 6th of June.
I noticed that a payment pas processed on the 27th of June.

if I understand correctly and by reading all the posts in this message board i should be receiving my passport and citizenship certificate by mail in two or three weeks?
It varies. Some people (like me), got credit card charged more than a month or 2 months ago and still nothing. Some get it within the time frame you said after the charge.

Yup I agree and timelines vary depending on the passport office. I finally had my CC charge after 8 weeks but who knows how much longer it'll be for me. Maybe another 2-4 weeks is my best guess?

For proof of travel, they need to see printed itinerary or I can show it on my phone? Also do I need 1 print out or 2?

So I just called in and got a hold of someone, the lady on the phone told me that my child's passport is in production so she's guessing I should expect the pp within 2 weeks. I'll believe it when I receive it lol.

I'll update my timeline once I receive the passport, but here's my timeline for those following this thread.

- Application Sent: April 23, 2022 from BC
- Application Delivered: April 27, 2022 to Mississauga
- Travel Date: August 20, 2022
- CC Charged: June 28, 2022
