HI ALL! I am so worried to read all these delays on getting the police certificate!!! We sent our fingerprints and photos (all they are asking for) to the Canadian Embassy in Mexico to request the certificate on our behalf.

My questions are: if they last more than 60 days to upload the police certificate, do we need to ask for an extension? or we are ok since we sent the request within the required time?

Does the Canadian Embassy in Mexico give updates? or do I have to ask them?

I just sent my papers last week. Hope someone can give me any advice, hopes or good news.

Thank you!

They were received by the embassy in February, and we are still waiting. No updates. I saw in another thread an email for the embassy, but in the same thread I also saw the embassy's reply email that said they are unable to provide personal updates. Who knows. People have waited 4 to 8 months for this. A suggestion that keeps coming up is to get someone in Mexico to do it for you.

Email to MXICO-IM-RAU@international.gc.ca to know the status of this.
I'm on the same boat, they really are a big mess, in my case they acknowledged sending my documents to Mexican Authorities on March 2nd, 2021 and then, after requesting a status update they replied on June 9, 2021 stating that they have sent the documents to Mexican authorities "This week". When supposedly they have already done that on March 2nd.

It's better to have all that evidence that you did the process on time, send the documents, email them to have proof of that so you can easily request an extension if needed.

I believe we just need to have patience, but it is really difficult with them providing fake status and not being transparent on their process.

Hi there!

Thank you very much for the info! I emailed them but they sent an auto-reply saying "due to Covid they are experiencing delays in replying to emails"-

It is a shame that we are stuck in our Country with paperwork that shouldn´t take so long to be done.

Good luck my friend. Hope you get good news soon!

I submitted mine August and they were done by November last year. I am applying inland though so it might be different if you're out of the country.
