Visa Category : ICT WP (LMIA Exempt) applied from India

Submitted online application : 22nd June
Biometrics enrollment : 28th June
Biometrics details reflected online : 29th June

Status of medicals changes to Medicals passed : 30th June

No updates since then.

I was told passport request goes out in a day or two after biometrics.

Anybody on the same boat ?

I gave my biometrics and got an email from them to send the passport, along with 2 copies of TT Services Consent form and a 19.9 dollar money order for "TT Visa Services service charge"

I am traveling with my wife and 2 children. Do I need to include 2 copies of TT Services consent form for everyone or just one is sufficient?

Do I need to pay 19.9 dollars for everyone? or is one service charge enough.

24th May: Submitted application online
26th May: Got request for Biometric
Had no date available until 11th so did a walk in
30th May Biometric done
9th June: Passport request

11th June: shipped by UPS overnight.. (consent letter 2 copies, passport request letter, passport and the money order of $19.90)

12th June: reached there at around 10 am ( tracking from ups)

No communication after that about the package, tracking nothing

19th June : checked the portal and saw that there was an update about application being accepted and a start and expiration date, counterfoil document number.
Also said travel document okay to travel with.

Got an email, saying account was updated, assumed it was the same thing.
20th June: no update, checked the tracking from the ups return label number just to see if my package has been shipped.
Finally checked again at 12 pm, said package was dropped at 10:30 am, Assumed that is my passport
21st June: morning got my passport before 8:30 am.

PS: I had not received any communication/ tracking regarding my package being sent to the IRCC. But yes I got my passport on time.

Try sending your application early if you have planned trip.
