Canadian Passport Application Status & Tracking

Tracking Your Passport Application

All Canadian Passport Applications are trackable. Your receipt should have a file number, but even if this has been lost, you can still fill in your other relevant information.

The site to check is here: "Passport Canada Internet Request: Request Status of Your Application".

Passport Canada has also put the following notice on their page:

"Important: We highly recommend that you use this service only when the normal processing time has been exceeded. Requesting information about the status of your application during the normal processing time could result in a delay."

Another note, you must use the online status check linked above to check the status, presumably they won't like it if you call them, since they'll probably just have to enter in the same info on the online web-form and then one would have to wait just as long.

Unexpected travel

I am supposed to receive my passport by mail on Dec 14th, due to an emergency back in my country I need to travel as soon as possible. Do you know if there is a way I could get it earlier? I was thinking to go to the Passport Canada office, but I am worried that by doing so I could delay the ongoing process. And if I just wait, I am worried it might not arrive on Dec 14th.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Renewal - Express Passport - 2 Days

I took my old passport to the passport office in Mississauga located at the Central Parkway Mall, 377 Burnhamthorpe Rd E and I am traveling on Friday (today is Tuesday). I only had to pay $30 extra and they told me to come and pick it up on Thursday!! So, I just wanted to let people out there know this can be done. It was terrible trying to find out without going to their office this morning whether this could be done or not.

Help with putting a rush on a renewal passport

Hi there: I found your post very interesting. I never knew about a rush option. I sent my renewal application about 13 days ago and when i checked it today, (April 25th ) the reply said it should be sent out on the week of April 14 ?? My travel day is scheduled for April 1st . Is there any way I could still put a rush on it. My closest Passport Office is Kelowna, BC . I'd be more than willing to travel there if a rush is an option for me. Thank you very much for your time and advice.

What does Status 4 mean with the on-line application?

Hi,  I submitted my application at the passport office and have arranged to pick it up.  I logged onto epass and looked at the status.  The received check-box is checked and there is a "status 4" listed as well.  What is status 4?
