A valid passport is required for all travel outside of Canada.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your passport is up to date. Many countries require that a passport be valid for 6 months after your planned departure date from that country, so if you are travelling on a Canadian passport please ensure that your passport is valid for this time period beyond your expected return to Canada.
If you are travelling outside of Canada and you are holding a non-Canadian passport, please consult our office as to the requirements of entering your destination country. You may be required to obtain a Visa or Visa Waiver permission.
We recommend that you make two photocopies of your passport identification page. Leave one copy with a trusted friend or relative who is not travelling with you, and keep the other copy with you when you travel and leave it in a safe place separate from your passport.
