Does anyone know if you need any copies of forms to do medical requests?
I leave soon for Canada for a month but not taking any of the original docs or application stuff with me. Is this ok?

Just wanna be sure in case I go, get the requests but then dont have the right info...

Should I take anything in particular with me?

Thanks

STC

I wonder if there's any reason for the slowdown at London (or is this normal and we're simply expecting too much)?

Maybe factors such as:
  • Pakistan applications now being processed in London
  • Catching up on the pre 2008 applications
  • Changes to the list of 38
Who knows, but the wait is driving me mad !!

1. Staff holidays.
2. For Canadian based staff, July/August is the months were they transfer to their new postings.

Great news, we received our passport request letter yesterday.

The only issue now is we have a holiday booked for 22 August, I think that will mean a trip to London to drop the passports off and then again to collect them.

A quick question - does anyone know - if you drop them off in person is there a long queue? We are thinking of asking a friend to drop them off but don't want them waiting around for a long time.

We recently dropped off our passports in person, it's only on Thursdays from 2-3 pm. We'd recommend getting there early. My husband waited 35-40 minutes and you hand them in person and also get a receipt. They are ready for collection in 2 weeks time.

Good luck!
