How long of a wait between "issued," waybill #, and passport pick-up?

Hi everyone,

I had my interview Friday the 17th in Montreal. Today, my status on CEAC changed to "Issued" (after having bounded between "ready" and "administrative processing"). Previously, I had selected the Loomis branch in Lachine as my delivery site.

How long now until I get my waybill #? How can I find my waybill #/where will it be posted? How long until I'm able to actually pick up my passport? The timeline for a convenient POE is a little tight, so the more I know about expected delays, the better I can plan.

We had our package 4 days after turning to "Issued"

You should be getting an Email soon with more instructions subject

"U.S. DoS Visa system return travel document shipment notice"

Assuming you are inside of Canada, Loomis should have your parcel by the 3rd business day

Or Check this site


you are looking for a REFERENCE ID to look up your package on Loomis Express

I can't find my reference ID anywhere on that site... where should I look for it? What format will it have?

I am having issues with this as well. Though, mine wasn't approved on the spot, i had to send in extra documents which they have already received and completed. The CEAC on mine has already been changed to "ISSUED" since July 16th and I've followed the usvisa-info.com link and there is nowhere on there that shows my waybill# or reference ID #. Even that website hasn't even been updated because it is still stuck at "Send Documents" even though I've already been approved.

"Your visa is in final processing. If you have not received it in more than five (5) working days, please go to http://usvisa-info.com/en-CA/selfservice/us_courrier_information to track your courier waybill."

I am trying real hard to be patient, but I've ran into so many issues and just when I thought it was over, there is just no end to it. Starting to get real frustrating.

Hope you and I get our issues resolved. :)
