Hi,

My son was born in Mississauga 3 weeks back and while registering his birth i gave his name First,Middle and Surname eg: A**ar A** K**n.

In the Birth certificate the name is mentioned as K**n, A**ar A**.

What is meant by Given name(s) in passport?

Do i have to mention in passport form in given name section as "A**ar A** K**n" or just "A**r A**"

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Congratulations on the birth of your son.

Regarding your question, you can find some instructions in the Child General Passport Application.

Here is an excerpt,

Surname and given name(s) to appear in passport

Write the child's name to appear in the passport. The name must not differ from the name that appears on the child's documentary evidence of citizenship.

Additional documents may be requested to verify the child's identity.


Under the new requirements, passports are issued in the same name that is on the proof of Canadian citizenship for all children under 16.

You may want to call:

Toll free: 1-800-567-6868
TTY services: 1-866-255-7655
Hours of operation: Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time

Or you may also want to go to one of the Passport application service locations .

You may also want to submit your inquiry or any other inquiries to the Passport Canada - Inquiries section.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
