How do I renew my Canadian passport in California?

1. Download application / instructions at http://www.ppt.gc.ca.

2. Get photos. Suggestions:

  • Photo Express, 479 University Ave, 650-327-0555
  • Keeble & Shuchat, 261 California Ave, 650-327-8996
  • Post 'N More, 1259 El camino Real, 650-326-6245

There is a simplified renewal process now.

Make sure you allow enough time for the renewal process. People have reported wait times of up to 2 months. While your passport is being renewed, you cannot travel outside of the US.
