Strollers/Backpack at Consulate in Toronto?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Can anyone share their experience bringing young children to the consulate in Toronto? We have an appointment for the CRBA for our child on Monday and the email I received says:

"No food or beverage is allowed (except for small amounts for babies and children)." They also state no backpacks are allowed either. Apparently strollers are allowed on a case-by-case basis (whatever that means).

Can anyone with experience tell me if they allow parents to have a small bag with diapers and a change of clothes?


Oh, you also can't have the keyless remote for your car?? If your car operates by a push-start ignition, where exactly are you supposed to keep that key?

Thanks for sharing any experiences!

 consulates have a security section for your keys and phones.  You can take a small amount of items in a plastic or see through bag.

For anyone that finds this, a stroller is okay to bring in and you can bring a very small bag, but it has to fit inside of this little box they have.

Has to be really thin and small - the consulate says 12 x 10 x 6. Someone with a laptop sized bag was turned away.
