    Where do I go to apply for my newborn's passport and citizenship and what is the website that you got the forms from? Thanks for any help you can give me. Also what do I need to apply for her citizenship and passport?

    I've just revewed my own passport in Dec2009 and asked about applying a passport for my son. The staff there had mentioned that new policies was enforced in Apr2009 limits Canadian citizenship to the First Generation of children born outside Canada to Canadian citizens. Because of this, tighter policies & longer processing times for newborn applications.

    You can apply for both citizenship card and passport at the same time but the staff said they generally issue the citizenship card first (usually child is 12months+) then the passport (usually valid for 1yr). Of course she mentioned that there are special cases where they may issue passports before citizenship cards.

    She also mentioned that if I was in a hurry to travel an alternative is to apply for a HKSAR passport since my boy was born in HK, he's entitled to one. The leadtime for a HKSAR passport is about 2weeks.
