Travel to Canada can be exciting, but planning is vital. Canada is a very different country from the United States, both in culture and in traveling methods. When considering making travel to Canada, there are many things to consider. It is important that you know about weather, currency exchange, border crossings, passports, insurance, and more.
– Visitors who wish to be considered “permanent residents” of Canada have to have lived in Canada for at least three years. In order to qualify as a permanent resident, you must be a Canadian citizen. After arriving in Canada, you must apply for your Canadian citizenship certificate.

– It is illegal to carry any weapon or ammunition when travelling between countries, including Canada. If you do decide to bring something of a firearm or ammunition to Canada, it is recommended that you register it with the Canadian High Commission. You should also see if your entry is restricted before leaving for your trip. Common restrictions include wearing face covering clothing, being a minor, and past convictions for criminal offences. Visitors who are carrying firearms may need to arrange a firearms licence prior to leaving Canada.

In order to apply for an immigrant visa, applicants must apply directly with the Federal government or via a Canadian agency approved by the Immigration and Customs Protection and Public Works Portfolio.
– In addition to having permanent resident status, you will also need to have a Canadian passport. Having a passport is mandatory when travelling outside of Canada. Having a valid Canadian passport will ensure that you can travel to many countries within the rest of the world. To apply for a passport, you will need to visit the office that issues your permanent resident card or birth certificate.
– Obtaining travel documents for Canada is a very easy process. You will need to visit the office where you applied for permanent resident status. There is a processing fee if you apply online but it is usually worth it to receive speedy service and expedient service. If you have a paper copy of your birth certificate and valid passport, you may be able to apply online for an electronic travel authorisation. To apply for an electronic travel authorization, you will need to visit the visa office nearest to the location where you intend to travel.
– A person who has applied for entry to Canada cannot enter Canada without the necessary documentation. If at all possible, a person should attempt to visit the embassy or consulate of the country of their choice prior to embarking on their trip. Many people do not know that there are consuls working in every country across the country. These individuals can assist a visitor with any questions or problems that they may have regarding their immigration or travel papers.
