At least ONE document to support your identity and the name to appear in the passport must be submitted with your application form. Further documentation may be required. Supplementary documentation must be issued by a federal, provincial or municipal authority in Canada, or local equivalent, and include the bearer’s name and signature. Documentation issued by the governments of Hong Kong or Macao, bearing your name and signature as requested on the passport, is the local equivalent. (Please note: Hong Kong identity cards do not bear a signature.)
You may submit original documents. They will be returned to you. If your original documents have expired, we may accept them if your details can be verified. If you are submitting photocopies, your guarantor must sign and date the photocopies to indicate the originals have been seen.
If you are submitting photocopies but are using form PPT 132, “Statutory Declaration in Lieu of Guarantor”, the same official who signs the “Declaration” must also sign and date the photocopies of your identification to indicate the originals have been seen. If you have no documents to support your identity, call the passport issuing office. If you are in Hong Kong or Macao, please call (852) 2847-7562 or email: email@example.com.
