Good news for Canadians outside Canada! As of today, it will be more convenient for you to find a guarantor to support your Canadian passport application. When applying for a Canadian passport, Canadians outside Canada now have the option of choosing:
• an adult with a valid or recently expired Canadian passport (less than a year); or
• a person who works in one of a variety of occupations.
Until now, Canadians outside Canada were only able to choose a guarantor from a list of specified occupations.
Other requirements apply. Detailed information is available on our website at: http://www.passport.gc.ca/articles/20131209.aspx?lang=eng.
