expired or valid visas
If you hold a valid visa from the United States, provide a clear, scanned copy of your visa. If you are living outside your country of citizenship, please submit a copy of your immigration status document for the country where you currently reside. This could be a work permit, study permit, visa, or any other document that authorizes you to be in the country where you are living.
这个对我挑战最大，因为转专业和各种各样的原因（比如学校工作人员出错），我在当前学位有6份曾用过和正在用的I-20，加上护照和I-94，我还加上了EAD工卡，总共造出了21MB，26页的大文件。。然而，他们只收4MB以下的文件,并且最低分辨率96 dpi per inch> <.
Digital photo (required)
The final frame size of the photo must be at least 35mm x 45mm.
The photographs must show a full front view of the head and tops of shoulders, with the face in the middle of the photograph.
The size of the head, from chin to crown, must be between 31mm and 36mm.
Digital dimensions are often expressed in pixels or DPI (dots per inch). The physical dimensions in pixels must be at least 420 x 540.
If an existing photo is being scanned, the minimum resolution must be 600 pixels per inch.
The file may be submitted in JPEG or JPEG2000 format.
The final size of the image should ideally be 240 kB (kilobytes), but not less than 60 kB.
The image must be in colour (24 bits per pixel) in RGB colour space, which is the common output for most digital cameras.
这个大小要求很有趣，AT LEAST 35*45, 于是我传了45*45的。
C Optional Documents

You must provide a Schedule 1 declaration. A Schedule 1 declaration is a CIC form with questions about your personal history. You will be asked to list information such as any affiliations with organizations and any military or government service.
1.5收到Passport request 【太快了啊！！我以为会在1月底】
1.27 领馆给我打电话了，显示no caller id， 以为是scam，后来接了之后我发现是真的领馆小哥
他们回邮信封或者LABEL 只收UPS 和USPS ，拒收fedex. 如果想用FEDEX 必须直接同领馆购买
Return mailing options:
A) Purchase a prepaid envelope or shipping label from USPS or UPS (or DHL if in Canada/Bermuda). Envelopes must be delivered to our office. Electronic labels may be emailed instead.
B) Submit a fee of $20.13 for us to create a FedEx shipment (US addresses ONLY).
This can be can be paid by bank draft, cashier’s check, certified check, or money order directed to CSC Consular Services Inc. Please submit a photocopy of this payment as an attachment when responding to this email, along with the name, address and phone number for shipping label. The original checks must be sent to the following lockbox with your name written on the back with a pencil:
领馆网站有写，但写的是 no fedex airway bill /AWB
现在我才醒悟，原来加拿大人说的airway bill就是return label/envelop!!!
1.28 收到领馆邮件，说材料齐了application in process
2.2 收到MYCIC 的邮件说有更新，查看之后发现case closed, a final decision has been made
2.3 用领馆给的tracking no. （不是shipping 的tracking，是VAC自己的一个号码）查，发现状态由前一天的 passport in transit to VAC 变成了 passport in transit to applicant from VAC; 晚上收到UPS 的邮件表示已从NYC寄出
Prepaid label只能寄UPS或者USPS， 但是他们收件不挑Carrier, UPS, USPS ,FEDEX都可以
