This video review the the top three things Canadians should to know passports for children, including the fact that children who travel need a Canadian passport.

Passport Canada has a number of rules pertaining to passports, which included specific provisions applicable to children anyone aged 3 to 16 and infants anyone under the age of 3. Specifically:

• All Canadians entering the U.S. by air — including children whether accompanied by a parent or not — must have a valid Canadian passport.

• As with passports for adults, any child or infant who is a Canadian citizen is eligible to apply; once issued, the passport is good for five years for children, and three years for infants.

• Children need their own passports to travel abroad (i.e. non-U.S. destinations), even if accompanied by a parent.

• Children who are not travelling with both parents should carry a “Letter of Consent” which states that both parents agree to the child travelling. (Although this is not a strict legal requirement, it serves to facilitate a child’s entry into another country).
