Has Anyone Applied for Cdn. Passports for Children born in USA

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband and I would like to apply for Canadian passports for our two children who were born in the USA after our marriage. I am Canadian, he's American. We would like our kids to have dual citizenship just for the flexibility and for them to have the opportunity to work or live in either country in the future without hassle.

Does anyone out there have experience doing this, any advice or pointers?

Thanks

You have to apply for a Certificate of Canadian Citizenship first. Then once you get that, you can apply for a passport.

Go to the CIC website for information on applying for the Certificate of Canadian Citizenship. www.cic.gc.ca

You will need photo ID to apply for the Canadian Citizenship card, so if you don't already have US passports you will have to get them first. Use that to get the Citizenship Card

With that you can apply for the Canadian Passport using the application for Canadians living in the USA.
