Canadian Passport Application

Passport Canada is experiencing a sharp volume increase in passport applications in all of its offices, by mail and through its receiving agents. Due to this increase in volume, it may take up to 45 business days (9 weeks) before you receive your new passport. Long application processing times are expected to continue due to passport requirement by the united states. To avoid further delays in getting your passport, make sure your application is complete.

At any Service Location excluding the US

You should submit your application in person. If this is not possible, the application may be submitted by a third party provided they:

* Show identification,
