Traveling Abroad to Canada

You may have heard that traveling to Canada is not easy. In fact, there are some tips you should follow before visiting here. One thing that you need to remember is that even though you may be a resident of the USA, Canada has its own laws and rules. The following tips will help you get the best travel experience while here. Traveling to Canada is not that difficult as it may seem.

When travelling outside of the United States, the main requirement is for a US visitor identification card (ITC). Due to the recent changes of the Coronavirus infection (CO VID-19) worldwide, we are temporarily modifying the way you obtain your card. Prioritize applications from those who qualify to travel to Canada. Even if you already have an eTA or valid visitor visa, you might not be permitted to travel to Canada at this time. For some exceptions, such as medical issues, you may still obtain an eTA and be eligible to travel to Canada if you provide a blood test from a Canadian provincial lab.

If you are travelling to Canada on an temporary basis, such as to visit relatives or friends, or if you are between countries on your international vacation, you may be exempt from obtaining either a Canadian citizenship or passport. There are many reasons for having either one of these documents. However, if you are travelling to Canada on a permanent resident visa, it is recommended you apply for a passport so that you can apply for a Canadian citizen or resident card.

When travelling outside of your country of citizenship, you are required by the Canada Border Services Act to have identification. The three categories of persons who are required to display identification are: Canadian citizens and their immediate family members; foreign nationals who are authorized to enter Canada; and foreign visitors who are registered visitors. Some countries issue identification cards to visitors at international airports and provide them access to buildings and other facilities. Others require visitors to show an identity card when arriving at the airport. Immigrant workers are often issued a permanent resident card along with an Immigration visa.

In addition to being required to display identification, those who travel outside of Canada also need to obtain a visa before travelling to Canada. For those entering Canada by boat or air, they will need to apply for a temporary visa prior to embarking on their journey. There are six types of visas available to immigrants or other guests in need of entry into Canada. Depending on the type of visa you hold, the time period for which you will be permitted to remain in the country is determined.

The most common visa for tourists is the Express Entry Visa. An immigrant or visitor visa holder may apply for this visa either at the immigration office or through the province or territory that they reside in. Once the applicant submits an application, the visa will be processed immediately. To apply for this entry visa, applicants must have met the eligibility criteria and provide all necessary documentation. If the applicant has met the eligibility criteria and requires an immigrant visa, they will be required to submit an application for an Express Entry visa. When the electronic system matches the information with the information from the Canadian immigration registry, the applicant will receive an approval notification.

If you are travelling between countries to Canada, or if you intend to apply for a passport while you are in Canada, another option is to apply for a temporary resident visa. This is called a passport for a temporary period of time. Foreign countries may grant you a temporary resident visa upon your arrival into Canada. For example, if you are travelling to Brazil to visit relatives for three months, you can apply for a Brazilian Passport. When applying for a temporary resident visa, you will be required to provide proof of your identity, and once granted you will remain in the country until your visa expires, or until the prescribed time expires for your departure country.

A permanent resident card is also available for those members of the Canadian Immigration System who wish to become a protected person (PR), and who have applied for immigration five years before. In order to obtain a permanent resident card, you will need to meet a number of economic and social criteria. Once you have met the five year requirement, you will be considered a protected person and you will be able to apply for Canadian citizenship after three years. However, a permanent resident card is not available for immediate family members or other long-term reasons, such as sponsorship by a foreign national.
