How many days was it between Passport under review to print has been initiated?
What's the current status after print? Thanks in advance.
Any update on your passport status? I'm so tired of checking their website everyday :(

Multiple times a day for me. :)
No change. The status only changed to under review yesterday so don't know how quick it will be.
Please post an update here as soon as you see a status change. It's been 5 weeks since I submitted my application and 10 days since police verification was done.

If you're a PR, no, I don't believe so. You need to ask an (immigration) lawyer though to be sure, not a random internet forum.

Congrats! How many days since it changed from under review?
So it was "under review" before police verification. After police verification it became "passport has been granted" and then it went back to "under review" on 25/09.
I've been checking almost 2-3 times a day. It just got updated.

Hi All,

What does this status mean "Passport has been handed over by the Embassy/Consulate to the OSP executive for further dispatch to the applicant. " ?

Thank you
