Canadian passports take at least 10 working days if you take it to the passport office and up to 10 weeks

Man....I can't catch a break on these timelines. But I know you can get a Mexican passport in three days! The language is a little harder to learn, but you don't have to learn the words to "God Save the Queen and you don't have to go around saying 'eh'!"

You have to of had to mail off your daughters original birth certificate to get the passport. Do you have another original to try and get photo id somewhere? If she will be going to college....can you take her to your local community college they do photo id's. You might have to pay $20 to file admissions application...but might be worth it.

Thanks to all of you for the good ideas. Update: I'm in California, and the quickest turnaround on a State I.D. is 10 days. When I called RCCL, they told me a student ID would not qualify, however, I just went through the set sail online checkin and it does show "student ID" as one of the choices for a Federal, State or Local Government-issed photo ID. I'm assuming that means they consider "school" is considered Local or State Government. If anyone has recent experience of a 16 or 17 year old using a student ID, I'd love the reassurance. In any case, we're going for it and hoping that we won't run into any snags. Thanks again.

Thanks for clearning that up. There were bets going around as to what you were refering to.

One camp thought you were attempting to make an oblique reference to the "Outdoor Capital of British Columbia" - which is Squamish.

The other camp hadn't a clue what you were talking about but guessed it might be a reference to the gastrointestinal reaction to eating Canadian food.

Not to be confused with Snohomish, WA which is very close to Vancouverish. Anyway I hear they have a lot of rainhemish there.

I am a little squeamish to see GC squirm!

shawnal, what is wrong with your child's driver's permit or license as I.D.? In California, when we disembarked Pride, the Immigration Marshall looked over my daughter's passport and her driver's license. He told my husband and I that it's nice to see a 17 yr. old have both forms of I.D., but that her license would have been fine alone. Although, he did encourage us to get a passport for our 13 year old. I had her original raised seal birth certificate with us.

BTW... NYS driver's permits and licenses have the individual's photo on them. Does California's?
