The Story of EuroPassport

EuroPassport was inspired by co-founder Dayn Gehry Riis’s own exasperating experience obtaining his European (Polish) citizenship. Lawyers in Europe, as he discovered, were extremely expensive and only covered 20% of the work. The rest was up to him.

So, he rolled up his sleeves and delved into the difficult task himself, doing archival research in Europe, sorting out the local paperwork, and gathering proof of ancestry from disparate sources. Applying his document management expertise and best practices knowledge, he managed to unravel the red tape, developing a smoother, more streamlined process along the way.

After that, Dayn agreed to help his sisters, his nephews, and then his friends and business colleagues all get their citizenships as well. From there, word got out… and more people in search of an EU passport beat a trail to Dayn’s doorstep.
Dayn began to realize there was a real gap in the Canadian marketplace: no service existed to make this citizenship and passport process easy and affordable for Canadians. The time for EuroPassport had come!
