Are you planning a trip to Canada this coming holiday season? Are you worried that you may be able to enjoy your trip but not your Canadian citizenship? If so, there are several things that you need to be aware of. Here are the things that you can expect if you plan to travel to Canada:
– Visitors to Canada are required by law to have their passports when entering the country. The new measures, officially announced in September 2021, ban all non-essential travel to Canada, which includes flights. However, the ban does not affect Canadian citizens holding dual citizenship and those who have lived in Canada for more than five years. The measures also prevent other unauthorized visitors from entering the country. Dual citizens must still provide a valid passport when travelling outside of Canada.
– All travelling outside of Canada requires you to have one of the following documents: a valid passport; a valid Canadian permanent residence card; or a Canadian citizenship certificate. Canadian citizens who hold a permanent resident card are required by law to have their photo taken and present it at customs upon arrival. A Canadian citizenship certificate is a more modern method of proving citizenship and can be used to apply for air travel to Canada as well as visiting other countries. The use of a Canadian passport and Canadian citizenship card greatly reduces the possibility of being apprehended at a border crossing. Dual citizens can still face serious criminal charges if they attempt to enter Canada using another country’s airport without a valid passport or with a false Canadian passport.
– Travel to Canada requires that you have proof of citizenship or birth. Two of the most common methods of proving citizenship are: providing a birth certificate and providing a birth registration card. Both of these can be done at any time, even if you are within Canada. However, there are some areas of Canada that require proof of citizenship or birth before visiting. This includes almost all of Ontario (excluding the Islands), Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick (excludingumberland).
– Tourists can also visit Canada using a Unites States Visa-exempt Foreign National. To apply for an Unites States visa, an applicant must first apply for admission to the United States. Then, after having received approval from the United States Government, applicants can apply for an immigrant visa. To apply for an immigrant visa, an applicant must have provided a declaration of acceptance by the Canadian immigration authorities that they meet all of the eligibility requirements for eligibility to enter the United States under the Visa Act. As long as an applicant can meet the eligibility requirements for entrance into the United States, they do not need to apply for an immigrant visa to visit Canada – they will qualify for a Unites States visa instead.
– In addition to meeting the eligibility requirements outlined above, a visitor may also apply for a Unites States Passport when travelling outside of Canada. If a foreign citizen wishes to travel outside of Canada to reach their final destination in the United States, they will need to apply for a U.S. Passport once arriving in the country. Once obtained, foreign citizens must obtain a valid passport from the US Department of State in order to travel to Canada. Canadian authorities do not require an applicant to apply for a U.S. Passport before travelling to Canada – however, it is always recommended that applicants provide an application, and a valid passport upon arrival, if travelling to Canada.
– Visitors who are applying for either a resident visa or a non-resident visa may also apply for an EEC or OSA card. These types of visitor cards are different from Temporary Visitors cards, as they are not considered valid Canadian immigration documents, and are not available at any time. To apply for an EEC or OSA card, a traveller must visit a participating Canadian embassy or consulate. Upon successful completion of your application, an authorized representative will present a document confirming the card’s acceptance.
Dual citizenship is becoming more prevalent today as travellers discover that they do not need to have a Canadian passport in order to enter Canada. While remaining in Canada with a valid Canadian passport is still required for most entries, those individuals traveling to other countries will most likely be required to show proof of citizenship or other documents of identity. However, there are numerous options available to those who wish to travel to Canada regardless of their citizenship status. Some of these options include visiting in person with a visa, making use of a Canada passport for entry, or using another type of international travel service. No matter what option is chosen, all travellers wishing to travel to Canada will be required to apply for and obtain a passport.
