Passport Problems

Please, can I have my passport? Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

It's been over a week since Passport Canada charged my credit card for my new passport but still nothing in my mailbox remotely resembling a pick-up notice from Canada Post. Argh! Am losing all kinds of sleep because of this.

16 days and then I'm away!

We were just wondering the other day when your exact departure was. Good to know.

I hope your passport comes soon!

Because of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) there's a backlog at Passport Canada. You'll have it on time, it will take longer than expected, but it'll still come.

Oh man, I'd be in a state of supreme nervousness!

What does "you'll have it on time, but it'll take longer mean"?

She'll have it when it's time for her trip, but it'll take longer than the usual 10+ business days.

I sent it by mail and that processing time is supposed to be 20 days, but according to their website they now have an additional 25 day delay (over and above the 20 days). Right now I am up to 38 working days since they should've received it. All I really do know is that they charged my credit card for the processing fee on Jan. 23. I hope that doesn't mean it's going to be 44 business days from then, if so, I am s-c-r-e-w-e-d and will be travelling on my Swiss passport.

There are worse things to travel on...

Why is right. The Swiss passport is the golden pass around the world. Of course, make sure that you don't need Visa's if you're using your CH citizenship.
