Picking up passport (once strike is over)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I’m guessing no one will have information about this but thought I would throw the question out anyway. If the Canada post strike ends soon, it likely won’t affect my passport since I don’t have an interview date yet.  I’m thinking my interview will be in early January. Does anyone know if there was ever an option in the past (before the strike) to pick up your passport? Since I live near Montreal and need my passport back as soon as possible I’d rather pick it up in person but not sure if that will be a possibility. Thanks!

Alyssa, I read that before the strike, when you registered your interview date, you could chose to have it sent to a Canada Post of your choice OR pay $20.00 for a courier to deliver it anywhere in Canada but you have to specify the address at the time of registering. I’m with you, I am staying in Montreal and want to be able to pick up ASAP the fastest way possible. I want to pay for a courier to deliver it to my hotel in Montreal. I don’t think you can pick it up at the Embassy though (that was just for the strike).

Hmm ok!  It looks like the strike is supposed to be over Tuesday, so I guess the December interviewers will find out how things go with delivery.  Does anyone know which would be faster - sending it to a Canada post or paying a courier to deliver it?  I live two hours from Montreal so I won't be staying there, but I could go back to pick it up as soon as it's ready.
