Why you may need a Visa to enter Canada
The Government of Canada is continually revising its immigration policies and procedures in response to issues that come to its attention. As a result, the list of countries whose nationals need a visa to visit Canada can change at any time.
In mid-September 2012, the Government of Canada announced that citizens of Botswana, Namibia, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Swaziland will now need visas to visit Canada. The Government reports that these changes will help combat issues related to such things as the use of unreliable documents and disproportionate numbers of asylum seekers.
If you are planning to travel to Canada, we recommend that you regularly consult the Citizenship and Immigration Canada list of countries whose citizens require visas for entry (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp).
If you are a national of a country that requires a visa, our lawyers can assist you with a visa application.
If you would like our assistance, kindly contact us to set up a consultation and we would be happy to speak with you about the immigration process(es) that you might like to undertake.
