For applications submitted at the Visa section of the embassy:
You may either pick-up your passport in person at the Embassy of Canada in Abu Dhabi during our service hours or have your passport returned via Aramex courier.
To receive your passports by Aramex courier, you must include either:
1) A self-addressed pre-paid Aramex airway bill with the following information clearly written:
10F West Tower
Abu Dhabi Mall – Trade Towers
Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
Tel: +971 2 694 0300

2) A self-addressed (C4 or C5 sized) envelope with the following information clearly typed or written at the back of the envelope:
Passports are very valuable and we want to ensure that they are returned to you safely. It is in your best interest to complete the airway bill or return envelope yourself. If you send your passport without providing this information, the return of your passports will be delayed.
