The only exceptions to this rule are for a Canadian citizen travelling on a U. passport, as Americans do not need an e TA to enter Canada, or when a Canadian citizen travelling on an e TA-required passport enters Canada by sea or through one of the land ports of entry from the U. Canadians in Canada can submit their applications in person through a passport office, a Service Canada location, or can submit their applications by mail. Canadian passport issuing system is modelled after the United Kingdom, where all first-time passport applications are required to be "countersigned" by a person who has known the applicant for a minimum of 2 years and if issued outside of Canada the guarantor may be someone who works in a recognised profession. The use of a guarantor is to serve "as a security measure in the entitlement process and as a point of departure for the future investigation of statements made on the application form".
Rules regarding the eligibility of guarantors were last updated on 12 August 2013.
However, whether a Canadian passport may be revoked or refused on the basis of national security concerns has been questioned.Canada is a member of the Five Nations Passport Group, an international forum for cooperation between the passport issuing authorities in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States to "share best practices and discuss innovations related to the development of passport policies, products and practices".The first Canadian passports were issued in 1862, following the outbreak of the American Civil War, when the United States demanded more secure identification from Canadians wishing to cross the border.Since 10 November 2016, under the new visa regulations all visa-free passport holders (except for U. citizens and nationals) are required to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (e TA) before boarding a flight to Canada.This means there is now a de facto requirement for Canadian citizens to use a Canadian passport when travelling to or transiting through Canada by air, unless a special authorization is obtained within 10 days of travel.
