New Canadian applying for a first Canadian passport

Discussion in 'Settlement Issues' started by Taylora, Jun 11, 2007.

  1. Hi everyone,
    I just got my citizenship last Friday after 11 months since my application. I'm concerned because I need to travel to my home country in less than two months but I don't have a permanent resident card anymore (since they took it the day they gave me the certificate of citizenship, which is not considered as a travel document). I understand that I need to apply for a Canadian passport (god knows if I will get it before August though). In the required documents, they want a Canadian passport. How could I provide one since I was not a Canadian citizen before? I'm trying to call Passport Canada but all their lines are busy. It's a real pain in the ass. Please any help/advice would be appreciated in this matter.
  2. Hi

    N/A or none is the answer, as your citizenship card will demonstrate the date that you became a citizen.
