Passport Application Procedure
Passport Canada's web police are having a tough time eradicating a rogue application form from the Internet. The passport agency considers the blank form a potential security risk and insists that anyone who wants to fill one out must appear at an office to request a copy in person. But the forbidden form has become readily available on the Internet, despite the best efforts of Passport Canada to keep all copies under lock and key. And the primary source of the online leak is the federal Foreign Affairs Department, which has helpfully posted it to several government of Canada websites. The bizarre tug-of-war is over form PPTC , used by people who want to apply for a passport but can't find anyone to act as a guarantor in vouching for their identity. Typically, Canadians who are overseas and need a passport require the form, which allows them to make their own declaration under oath.
