In general, documents are delivered within 3 business days once the Consular Section has released the applicant's documents for delivery. Please note, however, that there is never a guarantee with regards to how quickly the Consular Section will process your application. As the time it takes to adjudicate an applicant's case is at the sole discretion of the Consular Section, we cannot provide you any information regarding when your personal documents will be turned over to DHL.
PICK UP SERVICE AT A DHL POINT OF SERVICE (POS) LOCATION
Once the documents are ready for pickup, applicants 18 years or older must bring an official form of identification to the selected DHL Service Point location within 30 days. Applicants can also present the Air Waybill (AWB) Number in addition to their official identification. Any passports not retrieved within 30 days will be returned to the originating Consular Section.
Official driver’s license (with photo)
If the applicant cannot present any of the above mentioned forms of identification, he/she will be asked for an original birth certificate for the DHL personnel to make a copy and attach it to the Proof of Delivery file. The DHL agent will also review the information from the passport or laser visa to make sure that the document is being handed to the applicant in question.
