Does it matter which travel documents I apply for first for my baby?

    Also, do I need a guarantor to sign the back of the photo? Would that mean I would have to send the photo back to my family doctor/dentist back in Canada to sign?

    yes, you do....

    no, you do not need to send them to canada... you can get them done here in hk. a lawyer (brit) neighbour of ours does it for us.

    Hey Carang. We received the same letter as lesliefu for our two kids. My kids are younger than yours too so you might have lucked out. But basically for my kids if they marry someone who is not born in Canada and have children over seas their children do not get Canadian citizenship.

    They changed the law in 2009 so that Canadians who are not born in Canada cannot pass on their citizenship to their children(if the children are born outside of Canada) http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/citizen...itizenship.asp

    I think US has a similar rule - just curious, what if such a kid grows up and have a child with another person with the same situation say in HK, then the baby can't have Canada citizenship nor Chinese(if they are not of Chinese descent), so the baby will have no citizenship ?

    uk has a similar rule. i am british because my father was born there. i am a full citizen. but because i became a citizen through descent my kids, who were born in hk, are not british. the only way for tgem ti have gained uk citizenship was if i had delivered them in the uk instead of here.

    But your kids will still be affected by the law. We also didn't get notified as my son was born a month before the law officially came into effect but he still won't be able to automatically pass on his Cdn citizenship to his kids.
