Applicants can receive an in-person service for mail-in passport requests in over 300 local Service Canada locations. Now they can make the request even if their need for a passport is not so urgent, for example, if they plan to leave the country in the next few weeks instead of a couple of days. Until now, applicants could only request an in-person service for mail-in passports by visiting one of 35 dedicated Service Canada offices across Canada or by contacting a call centre.
