Ok so I have a question about the documents needed for applying. Is it just the naturalization certificate that is needed when applying for the passport. That's what I thought I read, but my mom's friends keeps insisting that I have to add my birth certificate. Can someone clarify please. I just became a citizen last week and I plan on traveling in Jan. I just want to make sure I get my passport back in time.
Naturalization certificate, additional ID (driving licence), one photo, cheque and a photocopy of your ID. No birth certificate necessary. That's for natural born citizens or children claiming citizenship under the child citizenship act.
Do they need to keep my Certificate of Naturalization when I submit my passport application? I am a bit weary of letting it out of my possession while my passport application is being processed. I do not understand why I need to do this. Am I misreading?
Is there any advantage to do expedited processing for passport? Will they still need to keep the Certificate of Naturalization?
