Renewing Canadian Passport

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I wonder if any of you would have some words of wisdom to share about renewing your passport while waiting for a visa.

I am currently waiting for Pkt3 for a K1 visa in Montreal. My Canadian passport expires in April 2012. At this rate, i will likely be interviewed in June. Is it required for me to renew it before the interview because of its duration or should I wait after the interview?

I have all my travel stamps from customs in it, including my trips to visit my fiance and I think it might be a handy proof of relationship. On the other hand, if my passport needs to be good for a year after interview, then I would need to renew it prior, right?

Thanks much!

The last passport I got in NYC only took only 3 weeks for them to mail it too me in NYC. It has become much faster if you have a passport already you send that in with your application and it is returned along with your new one if you request it to be returned.

The passport must be valid for 6months or more at the time of interview. I had to have mine renewed before the interview because it was going to hit 5 months-ish at the interview time. We filed the I-129F and then I filed for a new passport, it took a couple of weeks and I got back my original passport. I brought both passports with me to my K-1 interview. I have kept both passports and will continue to do so in case they need to see the original for whatever reason through out the process. Original being the one I used for all my trips etc with stamps on it. My other passport just has the visa in it. Had no issues doing this.
