How soon should someone travel once they receive the passport? Not sure if this is the right place to ask.

Hi,

I am a Quebec skilled worker applicant and I got the passport request on August 6, 2019. i sent the passport on the same date and the tracker said the passport got delivered on August 8, 2019. Till this date, I didn't get any update on my application. Is it normal? 2 weeks are over and no update on CIC and return tracker is not yet activated. Any leads will be deeply appreciated. Anyone have similar experience. Thanks. I am an inland applicant.

Sorry to barge in but I have a question about (my) following situation:

- Applied under the common law sponsorship with my Canadian partner for PR (in Ontario) in June 2019 from Germany
- Already in Canada since end of August
- Provided biometrics and fingerprints Sept 19th
- Online appl. status: expected to be finalised June 2020
- On October 1st I get a mail from CIC Mississauga that my application for PR is ready to being finalised and asking for me to send the 2 new photos, passport, etc. + return envelope
- Sent on October 3rd via Xpress
- Was delivered to CPC Ottawa on Oct 4th
- Haven't heard back since even though processing time is supposed to be 19 days. Have tried calling but it says no information on my UCI.

Reason to worry? Should I try getting through to an agent?
Or is it just a matter of waiting a few more days.

Thanks for the help!

Sorry to know your plight. I do not think they deliver on the weekend. Hopefully you will receive it on Monday, but be prepared to call them.
