Do babies need passports? Not sure where to post this?

Recommended Posts

This seems like a funny thing to ask... but my two SIL's are both having babies this year (actually my first niece was just born a few weeks ago!). Both babies will be attending our wedding in Maui in December, at which point one will be 7 months and the other will be 4.5. Do they each need passports to get into the country? (from Canada)

 

I don't know if it's something I should bring up with their parents.. I know it can take quite a few months to get a passport, but in the case of the other little one, he or she won't even be born until mid-end of July.

 

Does anyone know?

I find this on the US passport website:

 

Applying for Your U.S. Passport the Easy Way

 

Do I Need to Obtain a Separate Passport for My Baby?

 

Yes. All persons, including newborn infants, are required to obtain passports in their own names. For children under age 14, the consent of both parents/guardians is required.

 

For more information on special requirements for children under age 14, click here .

Babies do need a passport. My daughter has had one sice she was 4 months. We have to renew it now and we are getting our sons done as well.

The Canadian passport they would get for the babies would be good for 3 years, and it is a fraction of the cost. I think it only costs about $23 or something. As for the one that will only be a few months old, they can write in the date that they are leaving and needing the passport, and they should behave no problems getting them. We have always gotten ours within 2 weeks of applying, but I am not sure if that is the norm!

okay thanks! I sent off a little reminder to the mom who's little girl has already arrived. I'm sure she would have thought of it, but I would hate to find out that they completely overlooked it a few weeks before leaving!

That's great that they have so much time to get them. My niece was born on May 1st (last year), and we got married on July 5th~ they applied for it, but it didn't come yet. She had to take proof of application and her birth certificate (which my brother's fiance forgot- the birth certificate), so they ended up having to come the next day, while my brother flew out that day with some other family members. Luckily my aunt and uncle were coming the next day, so FSIL and my niece came with them.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
