If a Canadian parent gives birth overseas, will their child be able to obtain Canadian citizenship right away? You're asked this question, and I can answer it first. To be exact, if only one of your biological or legal parents has Canadian citizenship, he or she can get Canadian citizenship.

However, they belong only to direct children of fathers or mothers, who are first-generation direct parents, and for example, grandparents' grandchildren are not eligible for citizenship. This will benefit Canadians just like any other Canadian citizen and will be exempted from the latest issue of Corona Virus travel restrictions, allowing them to enter Canada.

So how do children born abroad get Canadian citizenship? Just because you're born, you don't give Canadian citizenship, but you must apply for a citizenship certificate after birth. If you apply for a Canadian citizenship certificate, it may take about 5 months, so I recommend you apply as soon as possible.

In order to apply, not only parents but also children's documents must be prepared and applied. If you look at the list of required documents, you first need to fill out a citizenship certificate application. You can download the citizenship certificate application through the CIC Immigration Bureau website and fill it out.

Other than that, you must prepare a citizenship card, a citizenship certificate, and a birth certificate in Canada, which are your parents' citizenship documents. After that, the birth certificate issued in the country where the child was born and the family relation certificate of the parents and children are required. At this time, if the document is not issued in English, you need to submit it after receiving a formal translation certificate. Finally, you have to take a picture and submit it in a photo standard that matches your child's citizenship certificate. When all these documents are ready and you apply, you will also pay $75 government fee, and the application will be completed at the Canadian Embassy in each country, and as mentioned above, it may take about five months to receive the certificate.

Once all applications have been accepted, you will receive a document receipt called Acknowledgement of acceptance and will be reviewed. After all this progress is completed, you can get a certificate of citizenship. These certificates can prove that your child is a Canadian citizen in the future, and if you don't have duplicate citizenship, you have to decide which country to keep before you turn 18. Once granted, citizenship remains permanent, so you don't need to extend it again.
