Question

Are parents required to sign their child's passport?

Answer

Parents must never sign a child's passport.

Children under 11 years of age do not sign the passport - the signature line on page 3 must be left blank.

Children who are 11 years of age or over must sign their passport only if their signature appears on page 2 of the passport. Otherwise, the signature line on page 3 should be left blank.
