Traveling with Green Card and no Passport

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is Canadian and he has his green card. He has lost his Canadian passport and is in the process of getting a new one. He, I and our 1 yr old child are traveling to Canada in 3 weeks and his passport has not yet arrived.

Has anyone traveled to Canada without the passport and only the greencard?

Thank-you in advance.

if your lucky and it works , he has to provide prove of new passport being processd , also canadian birth certificate would be required , and my advice is try to bring any aditional prove that he is canadian , ( driver license , health care card ,old passport even if expired , sin number ) anything you can gather up as prove, hope it works good luck Lona
