One more passport update…

and then I promise, I’ll stop talking about it. A co-worker told me she got up at 3:30 last week to get a place in line in front of the passport office by 4:00 am. She was 52nd in line and there were people who slept there all night offering people their spot at the front of the line for $100. She waited in line, was let in the building around 7:00 and waited to get a number until 9:30 am. She had all her paperwork ready, so she was able to hand it in. She paid $97.00, which included a $10 fee for them NOT to deliver it to her home because she wanted to pick it up at the Sinclair Centre when it was ready. Then she went to work and tried to stay awake all day.

Yesterday, at 3:05 pm, another co-worker walked into the passport office with her paperwork ready, walked right up to the counter with only one other person in line, submitted the application and paid $87, which includes a courier dropping it off to her house whenever it’s ready.

I think it’s safe to say the line waiting is over. Also, this morning at 8:30 the line was much shorter than it has been in weeks. I guess I’ll go apply for mine now.

    once the application has been filed in Vancouver Sinclair center, how long is it taking to get the passport delivered?

    It sounds like about 3 weeks, according to Ghosty, and that’s the time frame my coworkers were told as well. They said they’ll let me know when theirs arrives.
