Frequently Asked Questions for U.S. and Canadian Residents

There are two different dates on the instruction sheet. What should missionaries do?

The Missionary Travel Office requires that missionaries send in their passport, passport photocopies, and pictures by the date at the top of their instruction sheet. The online visa application should not be completed until 2 days before their missionary training center date and should be mailed to the Missionary Travel Office after missionaries have printed two copies and signed both of them. 

If I am a Canadian citizen, do I keep my passport with me until I enter the MTC?

Yes, you will send a copy of your passport ID page and keep the physical passport with you until you reach the MTC. Upon arriving at the MTC you will send your physical passport.

My signature does not match the name printed on my passport. Is that a problem? 

If you did not sign your full name on the passport, all your visa documents must be signed the way you signed your passport.
