If you want to apply for a passport at the same time as the citizenship certificate, or apply for a passport before the citizenship certificate arrives, you need to have a plane ticket to show that you plan on travelling. As far as I understand this only concerns newborns who have not had a passport yet.

We didn't have this so they wouldn't allow us to apply for the passport. I complained about this rule and asked for an explanation of the point behind the new rule but no one really knew. I was told that Passport Canada made this a rule in February but they didn't know the reason behind it. I can't fathom the reasoning behind the rule and it just seems silly to me.

You can get around this by providing a travel itinerary, which is not the same as buying a ticket. If you have a travel agent willing to do this for you, no ticket is necessary. It IS a stupid rule, though.

The trade office has moved you might want to edit the OP to reflect their new address: 6F, Hua-Hsin Building, No. 1 SongZhi Road, Xinyi District, Taipei 11047, Taiwan

Oh and that also means the picture place won't be around the corner anymore. hmmm.

So strange. I'm looking around the embassy's website and I can't find any links to download the passport forms/info for my son......do I have to go there in person?

And there's no links about passports whatsoever. No rules regulations....nothing.

I always hated that clause. I mean, how many regular folks are well-acquainted with magistrates, judges, officers of banks, etc. as if dentists are somehow above culpability or mendacity.... get real.

Tried to get my son's doctor to sign his pictures....he refused. :roll:

So for the PPTC 132 "Statutory Declaration in Lieu of Guarantor" what do I need to bring?

From their website:

Please Note: The PPT 132 form may not be accepted in some situations. For example, if you have been living in Taiwan for over 3 years, you will be expected by Passport Canada to have a guarantor and the form will likely be refused.

But considering it's a "rule" for doctors and dentists to NOT sign forms.......I think they'll understand.
