Thread: lost passport

  1. #1
    Writing for a friend-she has been living in this country for 20 yrs and is a permanent resident alien-originally from Canada. She is applying for her citizenship but does not have her prev passports and she cannont remember the dates she has traveled out of the country. I remember reading a post stating that you can get this info by contacting 1-800 info pass. Am I correct and if so-does it take a long time to get the info. Thanks.

    She needs to get a passport from the Canadian Authorities (Consulate General). An infopass is not an information hotline. It's an online webpage where one can make an appointment to see an immigration officer after an application has been filed and is pending. It's merely a service so that one doesn't have to stand in line and also for I-offices that do not have open windows but only take customers by appointment.

    Thanks for the reply but will the passport have the dates that they travel out of the country. That is the issue here.

    No, it's gonna be a new passport. Freshly issued by the Canandian Government.

    You can get records of your travel by filing a Freedom of Information Act request with Customs and Border Protection for their border crossing records. However, if she crossed by land those records will be hard to find unless you have the license plate of the car she used.

    thank you-this is the information I was looking for. How do I go about getting this info from them-writing a letter or calling them and do you know how long the process will take.
