I am really interested in past and present people who paid the extra for home delivery of their passport. Is it Canada Post Courier or some other courier? And also, what ID does one need in order to receive the package from the courier? I am a Canadian but don’t reside in Canada so I have no ID with Canadian address. I will be flying from Mexico to Montreal (direct) and back to Mexico after interview and then driving with my US spouse to immigrate to the US from Mexico with our dog and some belongings. Thanks for any help!

From what i understand, it's Canada Post even with the courier option. I think the AIS website itself said american driver's license is fine for pickup. They won't ship the passport outside of Canada though.

Thanks. I don’t have an America DL either, just a Mexican one. Do you think they would accept that plus my birth cert?

Hmm.. Well common sense dictates so, but ais was pretty specific in saying Canadian or American DL. Do you have a friend in Canada who can pick it up for you? I'm having mine sent to a friend myself. 

 

Edit: seems just recommended ID not necessarily mandatory... 

This is their exact wording :

Enter name and address as shown on a government issued Photo ID of the person picking up your documents. This person must be an adult.

The best proof of identity and residence is a Canadian or U.S. driver’s license.

If you do not have a Canadian driver’s license, you may present another Canadian government issued photo ID or a foreign passport along with documents such as utilities bill, bank statement, insurance policy, etc. for proof of residence in Canada.

If you are not a resident of Canada, you must present your U.S. driver's license. If you do not have a U.S. driver's license, please name a person that could present the documents mentioned before and pick up your documents in your behalf.

The courier clerk will release documents only if the ID presented by the person picking up documents matches the information entered below

The guy who owns the Airbnb where I will be staying said he would sign for it, but do I have to register his name and address when I register my appointment, or can I just pay for home delivery and he can sign for it? AIS site just says an adult has to sign for the package for home delivery. Thanks for your help

It does say you need to specify the person ahead of time. It might actually be worth it for you to call Canada post instead and ask if they would release a package addressed to you with you Mexican dl being proof of identity. They're ultimately the ones who decide who is allowed to pick up the package I think.

AIS just emailed me and said home delivery required no ID, just that it be an adult!! Phew
