Hey all, I have received an email from Canada immigration team asking to submit passport to Ottawa, Canada office for one way Visa stamping.

They mentioned if you live in US or Canada, you can send the passport to this Ottawa office. If you can't then they will let me know near by embassy options.

I sent email to customer service stating that I can't submit to ottawa, please let me know other options. They are clueless and replying please submit to ottawa one..

Did anyone submit the passport to canada embassy in USA?

  • I did it. Once I had sent them a similar email, I got a letter in my account asking me to submit my passport in NYC consulate

    • VFS Global manages it. It had clear instructions though. They wanted photo back then. Now biometrics are separate.

      Don’t remember any documents pricesly

      Do we need to pay anything extra if we submit to local office?

    I think it depends on which state you live in the us. Most of the States in the Midwest/PNW you have to send to Ottawa. Southern states are directed to the NY embassy (this is based on anecdotal evidence). What's wrong with sending the password to Ottawa ? I got mine back within 2 weeks

      Is it safe to send? I am just worried about passport getting misplaced. BTW which courier service did you use?

      Yes it's safe. You can only use FedEx (weird I know). There are specific instructions on how to send (You will have to a FedEx account and put a card on file and everything). Easiest way is to go to a FedEx store. They will help you out with the return label and everything. Just take the instructions sheet that you received with you.
