1. Unless you are a Canadian citizen, and the child can apply for proof of citizenship, a facilitation visa will NOT be issued. You would have to add the baby to the application for your wife.

Assuming you are Canadian, as your child is under the age of 2, you need to apply for a Certificate of Citizenship and limited validity passport for your child.

Hi guys!

Same situation - my wife's spousal case just got approved and she got her passport back bu our son who is almost 1, and who we have applied for a Proof of Citizenship since I am a Canadian Citizen, has not been approved yet (could take up to two years according to them - cic), so we are looking into getting him a facilitation single entry visa as soon as possible. Don't know where to start - any help or direction on how to do this would greatly be appreciated!

Thanks

Hi

Apply for a limited validity Canadian passport instead.

Have you done it before? I tried getting info on Facilitation Visas, but no luck. Any experience with this limited validity passport and what the processing and timeframe is like?

No, I have not done it. Many on the forum have. The passport can be issued within days if proof of travel is shown.

Can anyone who has gone through the process for an urgent Facilitation Visa or Limited Validity Passport please reply and help me out and guide me regarding the process and what we would need to do/fill out? I cannot seem to find anything online regarding the processing and time is tight. I have emailed and inquired with The High Commission in Pakistan, but nothing yet.

Help!

Thanks
