  • Passport for Canadian-born child of Indian citizen

    An Indian citizen with a baby born in Canada recently told me his Indian consulate refused to give the baby an Indian passport! What! That can't be right!

    I found the following on the websites of Indian consulates in Canada.

    Ottawa:
    http://www.hciottawa.ca/passports-0509.pdf
    "New passport for a child" - so it looks like they do give passports to Canadian-born children.

    Vancouver:
    http://www.cgivancouver.com/passreg....t_for_children
    "Only children with at least one parent being an Indian citizen are entitled to Indian citizenship and an Indian passport" - so it looks like they do give passports to Canadian-born children.

    Toronto:
    http://www.cgitoronto.ca/Passportser...rtservices.htm
    There is only "Passport for children on expiry of the existing one" but not "New passport for a child" - so it is not clear whether they give passports to Canadian-born children.

    Does anyone have experience applying for an Indian passport for a child of Indian parents born in Canada? In particular, does anyone have experience doing that in the Toronto consulate?

    Please post a response here or send me a private message or email.

    Thanks,
