Default Response time from Buffalo to Fax/Mail

Hi,
Has anyone had any success in getting the Canadian Consulate General
in Buffalo to respond to one's inquiries about the PR application. I
send them my passport 8 weeks ago and they have not returned it. And
they are not responding to my fax inquires. How long does it take
ususally before they respond to your inquires? Should I try contacting
them by regular mail instead?
Thanks,
Rahul

How did you send your passport and from where? If you sent it by registered
mail then you can check to be sure it was received. That information should
then be included with you fax. If you are in Canada you should allow a
little longer for customs clearance, even though the source is the Canadian
Consulate.

I'm sorry it's taking so long to get your passport back. That's horrible.

Yes, I would really use regular mail as faxes are much more common and they're much more likely to disregard or possibly even trash a fax. Plus, with the high volume of faxes they get, it's always possible that yours got lost or wasn't properly received. I'd strongly suggest writing a letter and sending it FED-EX if you can afford it.

Has anybody actually sent a fax and gotten an answer???

We sent fax in January and got an answer in 2 days.
We sent additional one in March, but it seems like they won't answer on that one.
I hear more and more people complaining that Buffalo is not answering faxes.

Hi Jim,
I used CanadaPost ExpressPost to send my passport. Canada Post can
only confirm that they have delivered it to the correct zip code which
is the zip code of Canadian Consulate General in Buffalo.
I used ExpressPost in the past without any problems.
So i am reasoanably sure Buffalo has recieved it but they are just not
responding. Help??
Thanks,
Rahul
