Default P.a.l.

Sent out my pal a few days ago, is the 3 month wait period the average or will I be waiting for a while longer?

It could be three months, it could be six months, depending on the current backlog, and how lucky you are.

My first PAL took 5 months. If you just mailed it now, being hunting season I would expect to be waiting at least 4-6 months

A lot of the time it comes down to how easily your references are contacted. I think they are mailing out letters requesting your references to phone in at their convenience instead of playing phone tag.

I have a friend who waited six months before finding out his brother hadn't gotten around to making the phone call. Once the call was made he had his pal within two weeks.

Is your PAL a New Application or a Renewal ?


I e mailed my Renewal in on a Thursday afternoon with pic, the PAL was approved and issued on Friday. It was mailed out monday and I had it by that Friday. About 8 days and I had my new card.

I heard a rumour if you call and politely ask the status it sort of reminds them and while they have the file up they just deal with it.

Or... you **** them off and they throw you to the back of the line.

Got mine in about 40 days a few months ago, they never called my references. I checked on line and there was no info, so I called after two weeks and they said it wasn't in the system.
I called a week later still wasn't in the system.
4th week I checked online and it said it was approved, I received it a few days later.
