Default passports back from CIC London?????

Hi

We are in Canada and sent our passports to CIC London 3 weeks ago......do you think the wait will be much longer as we are getting a bit worried about it.

thanks


Pete

Hi Pete,
I think mine took almost a month to get it back (and thats within the UK) I would think you shouldn't have to wait much longer but add a week at least if they are posting back to Canada.

I'm in the same boat, I know they arrived in London on the 11th. CIC promised a faster turnaround (after my PPR was screwed up over Christmas), but you need to account for at least a week postage time on the way back to Canada. Hope they both find their way back over soon

Thanks Guys

We enclosed an express FedEx return envelope......guess that doesn't count for much.

Thanks for your help and let's hope we get them soon

From some of the threads on the site, it seems pot luck whether they use the Fedex envelopes people supply. From the responses, it seems most often they are sent back by normal registered mail.

So did we. They didn't use it as our waybill "did not meet their specifications". I have no idea what their specifications are. However, they did return them by a registered postal service, so don't worry about it. Ours took about 4 weeks to come back.

They got my passport in London on February 8th. I'll let you all know when I get it back in this thread.
Good luck to all!

I just checked my status on the CIC web site and it has changed from "In progress" to "Decision made" so I guess the passport should be on its way soon :-). Good luck to all !

I sent off my passports on Jan 2, and was getting a bit worried too as everything else had been sent back in 10 days. It arrived with visa attached in the 2nd week of Feb, so don't worry!

Cheers Ice man. I've been in Toronto working on a temp visa nearly two years. Applied for PR in mid-Oct 2007 and got it finalised in less than 4 months. Was surprised by how quickly it took, and in the nick of time before my two-year temp visa runs out.

That's good going alright, pretty similar to me. I am in Halifax on a two-year WP and applied for PR through the Provincial Nominee Program here. Just waiting on my passport back at the moment, the whole thing has taken around six months.
