If your name has changed on your identification documents (government issued identification cards), you need this to be reflected on your passport. This is essential to avoid awkward and unnecessary complications when travelling. To change your name on your passport, you must apply for a new passport and pay the applicable fees, even if your current passport is still valid. Let our readily available passport experts ensure that your Canadian passport name change is done effectively, to avoid rejection, delays, hassles, and headaches. We’re here to help!
This application requires a guarantor. The guarantor is a person other than yourself who confirms your identity, has known you for more than two years and lives in Canada or the United States. For the guarantor you have three options:
- Select Canadian guarantor: Must holds a valid Canadian Passport.
- Select Professional guarantor: Must be a member of designated professions identified by Passport Canada.
- Select No guarantor: Must complete Statutory Declaration in Lieu of Guarantor (Form PPTC 132) at a Passport Canada office.
