This Week’s Success Story: Urgent Canadian Citizenship Certificate and Passport for Minor Granted!
We were approached by a client who was in urgent need of a Canadian Passport for a minor child in order for the child to accompany the client, the child’s parent, to Canada for work. The child was eligible for Canadian citizenship by descent by virtue of their parent being a Canadian citizen at the time of the child’s birth abroad.
Given the urgent need, we first made a request for urgent processing of the Canadian citizenship certificate as proof of Canadian citizenship is required in order to make a request for a Canadian Passport. We were pleased to have our request for urgent processing granted, and our client receive the Canadian citizenship certificate for their child in record time. Once received, we filed the request for a Canadian Passport for the child, which we were pleased to learn was also granted. We wish our client all the best!
