Congrats Ted!

We've got our medicals on Friday, so we're a bit nervous. Imagine this, a) you have a horrible ailment you didn't know about and, b) you can't go to Canada


Anyway you got all that out of the way, so well done

What is making you decide to go on the train as opposed to sending PP through secure mail/courier?

Regards, Katie

Hi Katie,

If you drop the passport off in person on a Thursday afternoon you can then pick it up 2 weeks later.
If you courier it, it can take a lot longer for them to process it and send it back or at least that is my understanding of it.


Regards

Ted

Hi Ted congratulations to us both as I got mine on the 11th! Having just returned from a week in London I will have to send mine by Royal Mail Special delivery but i'm in no hurry and they should still be back within 6 weeks. Good luck with the move.

If the OP is a citizen of visa exempt country, then s/he no longer requires a counterfoil. Re-read the PPR is quite possible that all that has to be sent is a full copy of the passport and a CHC will mail back the COPR. (IMM 5292) This is what most offices are doing. (As usual London may be doing something else)

Hi Stacey,

We are hoping to move at the end of March or early April, We are going to Toronto to experience some city living, as where we live in the UK is a boring town.

Regards

Ted

Just info for anyone else getting their passports back we sent off our by registered post on 17th December and got them back on 4th January - very quick we thought considering it was over the christmas break. There was not counterfoil just the COPR forms. Good luck to all those waiting passport requests I hope the process is as quick for you
