I applied from the US and got the letter on Nov 19 to drop my passport. My passport was expired and I applied to renew my passport at our embassy and due to Covid-19 issues, it is taking longer than normal and I still do not have my passport in my hands. The government of Canada gave me 30 days to drop my passport and just 10 days is left. is there any way I can extend this 30 days? Do you have any number, website or email to contact with? I filled a form on the website two weeks ago but no body answered to that form.

Thank you for your help,

Passport stamping delayed more than one month

I am staying in Canada and applied work permit extension. After extension approved,I send my passport and documents required for visa stamping. My package received by CIC on Oct 9th. It is almost a month but still not received my passport. Last week I received email from CIC that I need to send my passport within 30 days. But when I tracked in Canadapost, it shows my package with passport already delivered. I am really worried about my passport. How can we know the information about my passport? Is there a contact to call and get the details. Can anyone please help me.

Thanks in advance.
