Citizens of Canada can refer to www.canada.ca for forms and instructions for new passport applications and Canadian passport renewals. Most destinations, including Saudi Arabia, require that you have adequate unused pages in your passport, allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel. Canadian citizens cannot add extra passport pages to their passports.
