What are the rules for babies traveling through Canada?

Do they need a passport? Must they be with a parent?

Before 9/11 babies travelling to Canada only needed paperwork from the hospital for entry especially if they were from the US. After 9/11 everyone entering the country must have a passport. Minors need a guardian or parent to enter or someone has to verify for them at entry point.

For a U. S. citizen, the passport rules apply to reentering the U. S. All children, regardess of age, need their own passport. Parents must appear in person before a passport acceptance agent. Parents must establish their relationship when they apply for their children under 16.

They should have a passport and documentation of permission from the parents, if not traveling with them. This includes if one parent is traveling with the child.

If traveling as a tourist in Canada, you should have a passport for yourself and child at all times. You need to be able to show legal entry to the country and your location of origin. If you don't have this, a photo ID and a birth certificate can be just as helpful.

Everyone needs a passport in traveling through countries including babies. If traveling not with a parent, must be with a guardian with valid papers and documents of both to show the validity of travel.
