Does my pilgrim passport need to be stamped by the issuing organisation

Hello all apologize if I am posting this in the wrong place.

I am 7 days from finishing the Camino Frances having started in SJDPP on the 29 of May.

My credential was not stamped by the issuing organisation. Does this matter?

Appreciate it is a bit late to ask but hopefully it is not an issue.

I have been collecting stamps daily and will collect 2 each day from Sarria but am a bit worried I didn't get a stamp when I received the credential.

Regards
P

I got my first stamp in that box in the church in St. Jean. The person issuing my Compostela was overjoyed and gave me a final stamp from the Cathedral then she said "now you have the church at the start and the end". It is not a requirement though.

I did the same with problems.
This is rather an odd comment. To say she did "the same with problems"and not to elaborate what those problems were seems very strange. What I think is much more likely is that she meant to type "I did the same with no problems" (which needs no further explanation), but somehow mistyped, leaving out the important word. Perhaps she does not know that she can edit her post. She is Italian, apparently. Perhaps English is not her first language. I am surprised that she has not reacted to the notifications that she must be getting from Ivar.

The post was made only a few hours ago and we need to allow members to take time away from the forum :D😂!

The alerts/notifications depend on how you have set things up. For example, I do not get any notifications except as a bubble on the bell icon at the top of my computer screen, and that is only when I am online, logged into my forum account.

For any further comments or questions about notifications, feel free to send me a private Conversation so we don't distract from the thread topic.

No need for worry! Most secular agencies issuing these are secular and are obtained from an online request and they are typically mailed to the prospective pilgrim in advance of them starting their journey. If obtained at a specific start point and from a church or cathedral, they are typically stamped as they are purchased as a matter of courtesy, but there is no such requirement.

Camino Frances (SJPDP to Santiago) May-Jun 2022
I don't think so. A couple of weeks ago, I received a compostela and my credential (bought through Ivar) wasn't stamped in that box.
I finished last week. Same circumstances, no problem. I had the Hotel in SJPDP, Orison (for breakfast) next day and the usual once a day stamps until Sarria where I got the required 2 per day.
