If the child’s passport has a valid visa in it

All documents must be submitted in either English or French. If a document is in another language, an official translation must be provided.

3. Find a guarantor

For new passport application you will need to find a guarantor to sign your child’s application and one of the passport photos. The guarantor must have known you (the parent or legal guardian who is applying on behalf of the child) personally for at least two (2) years and must have knowledge of the child.

5. Receiving your child’s passport

If you applied by mail or in person in Canada, the passport (and any original documentation you submitted) will be returned to you (if you applied in person) or to your address in the United States or in Canada by courier service; and may be in two separate packages.

If you applied in person and paid for a pick-up service, the pickup date will be indicated on your receipt.

A child’s passport may be picked up by a third party if they provide written consent from the applicant and valid identification. The child must be present when the passport is picked up in Canada.

Important: Never sign your child’s passport or other travel document. A parent’s or legal guardian’s signature makes the document invalid. Print the Signature policy (PDF, 600.51 KB) and bring it with you when you travel in case you are asked to sign it.

A child’s passport or other travel document does not need a signature. A child may sign the passport or travel document and children over the age of 11 are encouraged to sign. If a child does not sign, the signature block on page 3 must be left blank.
