Default Passport request---Experts, please give advice!

Finally we got the letter for passport. But...

I have got visa to enter US on September 20 for one conference. If I send my
passport to the embassy, can I get it back before September 20 for sure?

In the letter it said the passport will be sent back within 10 business
days. Can any one let me know how long does usually take after sending out
the passport for PR?

Thanks a lot.

Jason

calv is an unknown quantity at this point

I just hated the idea of sending passport via post and again, return via post...

So, I flew to US, just for the stamp on the visa, and land immediatly upon the visa issued.

Hand in the passport on Monday (LA) but was told they only issue visa once a week. Wednesday that is.

Was told to return on Friday. And I got the visa that morning.
(5 days in total)

Not sure about the other outpost.

My wife lands 3 weeks after me. Had myself alone for 3 weeks to fool around (and looking for accomodation, getting the furniture, apply my SIN, healthcare, PR card etc..)

Thanks. My problem is that I am the dependent and my wife is the principle
applicant and she doesnot have the visa to enter US. Do you have any idea
that can I go to US to give and pick up our passports?

Thanks a lot,

Jason

Which consulate is it?

If you send it to Buffalo, it is very unlikely you will get it back in 10 days flat.
You've got to have the luck-of-a-devil.
15 - 20 days is more likely.

Your better bet is to go in person and submit the passport.
Buffalo accepts and returns passports on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Submit it on a Tuesday, and you will get it back on Thu.

HTH.
