Hi Admin,

I am looking for guidance on my parents PGP application:

Local Visa office: New Delhi
Biometrics completed: December 19, 2019
Medical Completed and received: September 3rd, 2020

They are still waiting for passport request.
1) Does anyone know if New Delhi office is sending out the passport request?
2) Is there any way we can call Visa office or CIC for follow up on the application?
3) Could they arrive here on visitor visa and then transfer their application to Canadian visa office?

Thanks

After a long wait my mother (in Iran) has received her passport request letter. She did her biometrics in Dubai, but the passport letter says to submit her passport to the "nearest VAC" and includes a link to the Turkey VACs. The Turkey VACs are only accepting passports by courier at this time (as expected), but after contacting them to confirm the process they said they do not provide courier services outside Turkey, and we must pay a fee to transmit the passport to the Embassy, and another fee for 1-way courier (but only within Turkey).

Does anyone have experience with sending a passport to Turkey from a different country? Many of the VACs will only use their own couriers, and it's unclear if we're able to use our own 2-way courier from/to Iran into Turkey.

The Dubai VAC site says they will only process visa applications for people with residence permits issued by UAE and Abu Dhabi, so that doesn't appear to be an option.

Thanks in advance for any tips!

you can contact courier services within Iran, they will take your passport to Ankara and pick it up and deliver it to you after it's stamped.

Hi dear! Congratulations!
My application is also being processed in Ankara and I'm so happy that they are back to work!!
Did they ask for Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) for your mother?
Did she do two medicals? your medical passed date is a year after your medical dome date.

Thank you

Hello, my parents got a request to complete their medical. We have been trying to reach Karachi and Islamabad centers but their phones are not working. I have emailed them the information to book the appointment. My question, is anyone going through the same thing? How long it takes to give an appointment?
Thanks

Finally got the request for Medical and an email to submit updated forms.. My parents are in Karachi, the issue is nobody is picking up the phone at the numbers given on CIC website to schedule the appt. Any idea how else to book the appt ?
There is an email they gave on the voicemail. I sent the information there to book the appointment but have been waiting for 4 days now. Please keep sharing if you make any progress.

Thanks! But no, I do not believe they asked for a PCC.
They did not ask for a second medical, as we worried they might, they just flagged it as passed without comment even though it was past the expiry date.

@jqi: Her case is being processed by CPC-Mississauga

@Verooney: Thanks, that's what I wanted to hear! Though @agfed's comment concerns me. Does the courier require a specific form in order to submit/retrieve the passport on my mother's behalf? I suspect this situation arises often enough that there are courier companies well versed in providing the service, but it's nice to be sure.
