I'm a naturalized Canadian working oversea. My child was born in Korea this Sept 2015, and we are in the process in applying for his Canadian citizenship certificate. According to the Canada embassy in my area, this will normally takes 6months-1 year, What happens if I need to leave my job and move back to Canada with my child during this 1year process time?



Here some few more concerns/questions hope something can help me with.


1.Can I get him a Canadian limited Validity Passport(since he is under 2)? how long can he stays in Canada with this passport? and what about health care during stay in Canada?

2. some people said that the limited validity passport is only for urgent need, will my case meets this requirement (need to quit my job and move back to Canada)?

3.My child was born in Korea so he already got a Korea passport, I'm guessing I shouldn't use this passport for him to enter Canada right? since probably he will consider a visitor and maximum can stay on 90 days? just want to confirm.

sorry guys if these questions seem obvious, I'm very new to this.

Thanks all in advance.
