  2. By phone. Call the IRCC Call Centre (1-888-242-2100), from within Canada only, Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm local time, except for statutory holidays). To speak to an agent, navigate through the automated messages by pressing 3-4-1-0.

  8. Shipping label or envolve??
  9. Label or envolve? I sent mine yesterday but lady from Canada post took of the tracking sticker from return package and told me it’s already in system
  10. When I can expect my passport back?

    Federal express entry
    PPR (email): 2019-03-29
    Passport delivered: 2019-04-11
    New photos requested due to yellowish background: 2019-04-25
    New photos delivered: 2019-05-08

    My CIC online status still "in process". Since I need my passport for traveling purpose in two weeks, eager to know when I can expect my passport to be back.

    My return label is a two-day delivery from Canada to US.
  11. a real lotto, it could be 1 week or 2-3-4 weeks or more like @agenfavo,,, CIC missed his/her return label,,,
  12. This wait is making me anxious. But my application just got finalized and approved on May 31st. I thought the tracking number for the return envelope would be activated today. But looks like it can take days (even weeks and months!) for activation to happen and for the return of the passport. So I guess I'll wait until this week. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Updated my timeline too. my return tracking number got activated last night (June 3rd), and as of this morning, the package is already in my city, so I should get the package later today if there are no other issues.

    My application was finalized and approved last Friday, May 31st. Full timeline below.
  15. Hi all..I sent my passport with Canada Xpresspost post on May 29th, they couldn't locate my package for a few days and as such my package wasn't delivered until June 4th. There hasn't been any movement since. It was to get my PR Visa and COPR...weird question, but can they change their mind??
