thank you for your response
I am also fed employee, but not sure why are they taking so much time, did you submit surrender certificate? they didn't ask for it from me, not with application or after, still in process and i have sent web inquiry couple of times but they are sending same response that it is in process
They didn't ask the surrender certificate. I don't have it anyways. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to expedite your case. Just waiting game.

secondly, do you think I can pick up the passport sooner before Christmas? I did a walk-in application at Brampton .

I would call them tomorrow after 1.30 , mine said ready to dispatch on the bls website around that time. not sure if you signed up for purolator delivery/ self pickup but then you can ask them about it. I called them as I saw ready to dispatch and the passport arrived to me the next day. you can also tell them you urgently need it

Just as a test, I tried applying for an e-visa just a few minutes ago. I successfully managed to go through 2 pages of the online form but on the 3rd page, it wouldn't let me proceed further or save data at that state. I tried both options "Save and continue" and "Save and temporarily exit". The page becomes unresponsive and doesn't register any feedback. Is anyone else having the same issue?
