  1. Did you get ur Passport back yet?? I see it was received on 10th Nov in Ottawa
  2. Not yet. Hoping to get it back next week.
  3. You should just send a copy for US passport.
  4. Oh man, that's quite a long wait without passport. Is that the general trend these days?
  5. Yes. It's general trend.
  6. Sure Dora, thanks for the response !!
  7. Hey I am in a similar situation. I wanted to know how long it took to get the passport back?
  8. Yes, please check my signature for my timeline
  9. This forum is a blessing! Thanks @APPNOV2014NY for redirecting me to this thread.

    1, Currently I reside in US. I spent a whole day in with UPS and FedEx to buy 2 prepaid envelops and no luck. (Unlike if you were in Canada, you can just buy two Express envelops). They were not able to generate return label from their machine as well.

    2, After reading this thread, I registered a FedEx account, created a outbound and a inbound label. Went to a FedEx store, print everything out, and the clerk took care from there. Get the right size envelop, put pouches in, put proper papers in etc.

    3, The commercial invoice is really a red tape, I signed both outbound and a inbound invoices as per suggested by the clerk.

    4 more weeks to LAND!

  10. Hi, so do we just mention the sender as "CIC" and sign with our name in the return commercial invoice? or should the sender name also be mentioned as my name? thank you!
  11. Yes mention sender as CIC and recipient as you. You will need to sign the invoice.

  12. Thank you, appreciate it! so just to make sure I understand it correctly, there should be no problem with the sender being CIC, but the signature being Alex Ross?
  13. Hi guys,

    I got my passport request on 1st February. I have mailed CIC Ottawa all the necessary documents along with a return envelope on 5th February. I forgot to add the return label inside the package. I was unaware of it, and came to know today that I had to generate the return label from the fedex account manager. I have emailed CIC about this today and have also attached the return label in the email.

    Has anyone come across this issue before? Would there be a problem?
  14. Hi Systix,

    I have 3 questions for you, I hope you can help please:

    1.) While creating the onward shipping label, there are two checkboxes to be checked: 1.) Customs invoice 2.) proforma invoice. Do we select only customs invoice?

    2.) Also, there is a terms of sale drop down where there are option like free carrier, carriage insurance paid, carriage paid to, exworks, delivered duty paid, delivered at place, delivered at terminal, others. Which one do we need to select?

    3.) There is also one more check box i am a little confused about: "the recipient is not the importer of record/buyer", do we leave this unchecked as well?

    I would really appreciate your help with this questions. Thank you!
  15. Hello everyone,

    My PPR email specifically mentions that I should be using USPS to send the passports.

    Can I still use fedex or ups in this case?
