    When it's done I'll...

    Hi there!

    I had just renewed my passport. The officer told it would be ready in 6 commercial days. I want to create a reminder in my cellphone so not to forget to... pick it up, claim it, retrieve it... so many optinons that I wonder which one is appropriate. Any suggetions?

    Cheers,
    Tito

    See above.

    I'd use "pick up" or "collect" if you have to go to the office yourself to get it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Just 'passport' would be enough to remind me what I needed to do about it.
