Gender equality Canada Visa - Please read and carefully follow instructions and procedure You must submit visa application with Official Invitation Letter A   letter   of   invitation   does   not   guarantee   that   we   will   issue   a   visa.   Visa   officers   assess   you   to   decide   whether   you   meet the terms of Canada's immigration law. New entry requirement now in effect Visa-exempt foreign nationals need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents cannot apply for an eTA. The leniency period that allows travellers to board their flight without an eTA ends November 9. Find answers to questions about applying for an eTA during this period. Be prepared: Apply for an eTA before you book your flight to Canada. Most applicants get approved within minutes. However, some applications can take several days to process so don’t wait until the last minute. Entry requirements for visitors to Canada Many visitors to Canada need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visitor visa. Delegates can find out if they need an eTA or a visa and if they need to give biometrics. While some delegates may not need an eTA or a visa to visit or transit through Canada, they will still need to: Carry proper travel documents and identification for themselves and any children travelling with them. Convince an immigration officer that they satisfy all other requirements to enter Canada. If they do not meet all the requirements, they may not be allowed to enter. The eTA application process Applying for an eTA is a simple and inexpensive ($7 Canadian) online process that will take just a few minutes. Most eTA-eligible applicants will get their authorization within minutes of submitting the online form. If your delegates need an eTA, they should: get it when they plan their trip – do not wait for the last minute to apply (see Travel documents), and travel to Canada with the passport they used to get their eTA. Find out if your delegates need an eTA. The visa application process Delegates can: consult the processing times to learn how early they should apply for a visa, if they need one. The earlier the process is started the better. find out how to apply for a visa, the fee for a visa and how to check the status of their application. find out what they can do if they are refused a visa. Refused Visa There is no formal appeal process if your application for a temporary resident visa is refused.

Inadmissibility Some   people   are   inadmissible—they   are   not   allowed   to   come   to   Canada.   Several   things   can   make   you   inadmissible, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations or in organized crime.
