Apply for a child’s passport: About the process
A Canadian passport is a travel document that Canadian citizens can use to travel the world.
To get a child’s passport, you’ll need to
- fill out an application form
- get the supporting documents and passport photos
- find a guarantor
- find out how to submit your application and fees
A child’s passport is valid for a maximum of 5 years. It’s valid until it reaches its expiry date, even after the child turns 16.
You can’t renew a child’s passport. When the child turns 16, they can apply for an adult passport, which can be renewed.
Until then, you need to apply for a new child’s passport when it expires.
