Canadian Traveler Information

Passport & Visa

Have a valid Canadian passport for all trips outside Canada. A passport is the only reliable and universally accepted identification document, and it proves that you have a right to return to Canada. Some countries do not require a passport for entry but do require photographic identification (such as a driver’s license) as well as proof of Canadian citizenship (such as a birth certificate or citizenship card). It is possible that a country might also require a Visa.  However, this varies from country to country.
