Supplementary Identification

At least one (1) document to support the applicant’s identity and the name to appear in the passport must be submitted with the application form. Further documentation may be required. For children’s passport applications, at least one (1) valid document for each parent, showing his/her signature, is required.

Documentation to support your identity must be issued by a federal, provincial, municipal authority in Canada (or local equivalent issued by the Indian government), must be valid and must include the bearer’s name and signature.

For example:

  • Driver’s License
  • Provincial health care card
  • Other federal or provincial identification card
  • Old Age Security Card
  • National, provincial, or municipal employee identification card
  • Valid passport issued by another government authority
  • Canadian passport*

You may submit original documents. They will be returned to you. If you are submitting photocopies (both sides), your guarantor must sign and date the photocopies to indicate the originals have been seen.

If you are submitting photocopies (both sides) but are using form PPTC 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, please contact us.

*A previous Canadian passport may be used as supporting identification provided that all of the following conditions are met:

  • the passport is still valid or submitted up to one year after its expiry date;
  • the passport is submitted with the application form. Photocopies will not be accepted; and
  • the name indicated in the passport is the same as the one on the application form.
