Sending passport from USA to Canada

  1. Hi all,

    While creating return label, I am not able to complete payment. The credit card information is rejected. There was a mention that the address in the 'From' field should match the address of the credit card. But when we create the return label, From address is CPC's Canada address. How could this match my US credit card address? I request somebody to help me with clarity. Thanks in advance!
     
  2. I created an account with fedex, and then chose the option of paying by my account
     
  3. they mentioned in the website as 0.2 lbs

  4. Thanks I paid for 2 lbs in and out bound just to be safe and there is total $5 diff in 1 and 2 pounds
     
  5. thanks for this. I generated a shipping label using this instructions. One thing it asks is a shipping date and I can only select either today or tomorrow. Wondering if the label will be valid for the future even if I select the next day. Thanks.
     
  6. Yes, it will be valid.
    Another tip, this link sends you FEDEX ship manager lite. Over there you only get options for FEDEX Express and they range from $50 or $60+. I used FEDEX ship manager advanced instead and selected FEDEX Ground, that only cost me $20 (CAD) and it arrived in 3 weekdays. The only downside is that Fedex ground does not deliver on weekends, but I was not in a hurry. With ground shipment you need to select the shipment type or something like that and I selected 'repair and return'.

    Also if you are sending for the first time, there is no email to reply and hence you have to print the label, customs forms and send those along with your passport.
     
  7. Thank you for the response.
     
  8. Hi lampbreaker I hope you can help with my question. I just PPR today, I received 3 separate passport request letters for each member of my family. Each letter is asking for a return envelope. Can anyone please let me know, is one common return envelope sufficient, or do we need to send 3 separate return envelope. BTW i reside in US and will be sending by Fedex. appreciate your help!
     
  9. One should be enough. I did not receive three separate email for my family, just one.

  10. Great 'tip'. This was more like the entire guide for me. Thank you. Had the whole runaround earlier yesterday trying to figure out what to do - UPS & Fedex refused to print return label. Ended up going the 'Account-route'. Hopefully, everything works out fine.
     
  11. I am going through FEDEX ship manage advanced shipping and on a page that says "Commodity Information"

    Does anyone one know what to do there?

    I am planing to use USPS to send my passport and using FEDEX for return.
     
  12. I am in a similar situation as yours , and i will be creating an account to send my passport. Did you receive your passport ? or did face any issues with the retrurn shipping label ?
     
  13. Shipped. Awaiting delivery. Chose ground. So, will receive it next week.
     
  14. when did you send your onward shipment ? trying to get an understanding of the total time it would take for ground vs priority
