To apply for a Canada visa, you must meet certain requirements. The Canadian Embassy may require additional documents and even a personal interview. Therefore, it is important to gather as much documentation as possible. Several factors may affect the processing time, so it is important to prepare accordingly.
eTA system helps protect Canada’s boarder
eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is a new system that helps protect Canada’s boarder. The eTA system allows the government to check with airlines if a traveler is eligible to enter Canada. This means that those without an eTA will not be allowed to board an aircraft and could risk missing their flight. The eTA system is a key part of the Beyond the Border Action Plan, which introduced the new program in 2015. It mirrors the U.S. Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), and will require most foreign nationals to apply for eTA online before flying into Canada.
Applicants must have a valid Canadian passport or a valid passport from another country. Those with criminal records may also be denied an eTA. Impaired driving is also a criminal offense and can prevent an applicant from receiving an eTA.
Letter of consent required for Canada visa
The letter of consent must be signed by a parent if a child is traveling with you. This document shows that you have permission to take your child to a foreign country. This document may also be requested by immigration officials, airline agents, or Canadian officials when you return to the country. If you fail to provide this letter, you may face delays and even rejection at customs.
For children traveling with an adult, a letter of consent should be carried by the parent who is not travelling. The letter of consent can help dispel the concerns of the immigration officer about a child being abducted.
eCA document required
When applying for a CANADA VISA FOR BRITISH CITIZENS or CANADA VISA FOR SWEDISH CITIZENS, you may need to submit an Education Credential Assessment, or ECA, document. This document proves that your educational credential is equivalent to a Canadian one. To obtain an ECA report, contact the relevant regulatory body for your province. The organization will then issue a report, which is valid for five years.
To request an ECA, contact a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant, who will provide guidance and advice. Generally, an ECA costs $200, which includes delivery fees. Different designated professional bodies may charge different processing fees. You do not need to have an ECA to apply for Express Entry, but you must have one before you can apply for permanent residence.
Working in Sweden as a frontier worker
Working in Sweden as a frontier worker requires a work permit. The work permit is valid for five years, and can be extended. The application must be submitted to the Swedish Migration Agency. The agency will then consider your application and let you know if you can work in Sweden. If your permit expires, you must apply for an extension. You can, however, keep working while you wait for the decision.
If you are a British or Swedish citizen, you may have to apply for a work permit to work in Sweden as a frontier worker. The deadline for applying for a work permit is 1 December 2020. You may also need to obtain a work permit or a permanent residence permit from the Swedish government. You will need a valid passport and a valid residence document to work in Sweden.
