Travel to Canada by Air

While some countries open their doors to all visitors, Canada does not. The Government of Canada has implemented a system that requires certain eligibility requirements before travelling to Canada even though it is not considered to be a safe country for travel. Although there are several reasons why a person may need to visit Canada, the most common reason is to apply for and receive Canadian citizenship. There are some other reasons for visiting Canada, however, and if you are planning to apply for citizenship, you should review the points below to determine if your travel to Canada will be approved.

Travel to Canada

Before you can apply for Canadian citizenship, you will first need to obtain an immigrant visa. Although you do not need a visa from the Government of Canada to enter the country, it is required that you have one in order to apply for a Canadian passport once you are eligible. Even if you already have an immigrant visa or travel authorization (see section 4 of the Immigration Program Guide), if you do not have a passport you will be unable to travel to Canada while you are waiting for your visa. On that note, you should also note that if you are travelling between June 2009 and February 2012, you will need to have your application forwarded to the Canadian Immigration authorities by July 29, 2011 in order to meet the current immigration requirements.

If you are currently applying for an immigrant visa, or are already in possession of a travel visa or travel permit, you can apply for a temporary resident visa at any of the three main immigration offices in Canada – the Immigration and Customs Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa, or the Canada Border Services. These offices will provide you with forms to fill out, and will be more than willing to take your credit card details so that they can process your request faster. If you are currently in the country illegally, you should note that Immigration officials do not accept visa applications online. Alternatively, if you can arrange an alternative method of payment for your application, such as using a cashier’s cheque or money order, you may still be able to proceed with processing your application.

There are several types of visitor visas and/or permits available to Canadian residents that will help you cross the international border. While there is no law that states you cannot leave the country for any reason, there are some important restrictions that may require you to remain in Canada for a limited period of time. The most common restrictions are related to health and social services – for example, you will usually not be allowed to enter Canada if you are suffering from a disease that could lead to an obstruction in your digestive system. Some other types of restrictions include citizenship and employment status requirements, and may also require proof of funds.

In addition to the three main immigration offices in Canada, there are a number of other offices that offer temporary or permanent resident status. Many immigrants come to Canada searching for work or a better life, and in some cases they fall within a category that makes them inadmissible to the country. A visitor visa is one of the easiest ways to reach Canada, and while you cannot legally overstay your visa (in most cases), you are still able to enter the country for a limited period of time. If you are inadmissible to Canada, however, you may find it more difficult to travel to Canada – entering and exiting the country requires a visa number. If you are inadmissible, you can apply to the Immigration Program, which is similar to the Express Entry (Eligibility Assessment Program) and Temporary Residence (TRANSP) programs.

There are three main reasons why tourists choose to visit Canada. First, they may be on vacation, looking for an adventure or a relaxing getaway; secondly, they may be coming to visit family members who are living in Canada or to study – either part-time or full-time. Another reason many people choose to travel to Canada is to partake in some type of trade, whether that be exploring a mine or harvesting a precious resource; or even visiting another country to partake in a particular sport or hobby. Regardless of the reason, when travelling outside of your home country, it is important to ensure that you are properly protected with a good quality Canadian passport and security related documents.

Many people choose to travel to Canada by air, landing at either an airport in the country’s main cities ( Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver), or by way of an international airport that is closer to their point of origin. Some airports that service Canada have been authorized by the Government of Canada to allow air travellers to use these airports for their return or international travel. As well, some airports in other countries around the world have also implemented measures to allow for easier movement between Canada and abroad, such as in Paris, London, or Rome. When choosing an international airport to visit, it is important to check the services offered, flight timings, and other relevant information. The more research you do, the less likely you are to experience any problems when you travel to Canada.

When planning your trip to Canada, it is very important to ensure that you are aware of your rights as a visitor, especially if you intend to stay longer than a few days. You may need to obtain temporary resident status, which will determine the number of days that you are allowed to remain in the country. Many people choose to extend their stay by crossing the border into Canada, and obtaining a temporary work permit. In some cases, your work permit is needed for employment opportunities in Canada, but in many situations, your work permit will be sufficient to allow you to work in Canada legally. Your passport is not necessary for entering Canada, but it is certainly helpful and highly recommended when crossing the border.
