Are you thinking of travelling to Canada for a vacation, or to visit your relatives?

Most UAE residents require a visitor visa to travel to Canada. You can find out if you need a visa to visit Canada by taking a small quiz on the official website: https://ircc.canada.ca/english/visit/visas.asp. You can also find a list of nationalities that require the permit to enter the country.

In the Emirates, Canada's authorised visa service provider is VFS Global, through which applications are sent.

Stay up to date with the latest news. Follow KT on WhatsApp Channels.

Every application must be accompanied by a signed consent form, which authorises VFS to take biometrics for the process. The form is available on the VFS website.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can apply from the UAE, and what documents you need to do so.

Step 1: Filling forms

- The visa application form can be found on the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) website.

- You must fill in the form electronically. Once its filled in completely, the form (including barcoded sheets) needs to be printed on white, bond quality, non-glossy paper, using a laser printer.

- Hand-written forms are not allowed

- The IRCC requires supporting documents along with the application. There is a document checklist that you must submit along with the form. It lists the required documents in the order that they should be collected and submitted. The documents include (but are not limited to) proof of residence, marriage certificate, passport copy, and proof of financial support.

- You must also fill out a consent form and attach it with the application form.

Step 2: Booking appointment

- If you have not submitted the application form online, you will need to visit a visa application centre (which in this case would be a VFS centre) to do so. You must book an appointment anyway to have your biometrics (fingerprints and photos) taken.

- You can book an appointment in five ways: online, via telephone, by email using a web form, web chat on the VFS website, and in person at a VFS centre.

- Once the appointment is booked, an appointment confirmation and email will be sent to the applicant.

Note: If a family or group is applying together, they will still need to book individual appointments for each member.

Step 3: Paying visa application fee

You can pay the fee at the time of the appointment. Both the Government of Canada Fee and biometric fee must be paid as per instructions on the IRCC website.

Step 4: Visiting application centre

- You can submit your application and biometrics at the centre, pay the fees, and receive a receipt.

- The receipt contains a unique tracking number which will allow you to track the progress of your application online.

FAQs Related to Canada Visa

1. what is the canada eta for uae citizens and what does it do.

The eTA is an electronic travel authorization which gives UAE visitors the ability to enter Canada without the need for a visa. The document is a visa waiver, which bypasses the requirement to apply for a visa before entering the country. Holders of an eTA can visit Canada for up to 6 months at a time with multiple entries. This means they can exit and return numerous times, using the same eTA. A UAE national with this visa waiver is permitted to enter the country for tourism, business, or transit, depending on their individual needs.

4. How Can I Apply for the Canada eTA from the UAE?

The visa waiver is quick and easy to apply for. The application process is completely online; all you need is access to the internet and your personal details. The form asks some basic questions about the applicant, which only take a few minutes to complete. It asks for information such as personal details (name, date of birth, etc.), contact information (phone number, email address, etc.), and passport details (passport number, expiry date, etc.). You will then be asked some questions about your travel plans (itinerary, accommodation, etc.). UAE applicants should ensure that all the given information is accurate and true. Any discrepancies could cause delays, or even a rejected application. Always double-check your answers before submitting.

Essential Steps to Obtain a Canada Visit Visa from Dubai

Determine Eligibility

The first step in obtaining a Canada visit visa from Dubai is to determine your eligibility. This involves checking that you meet the basic requirements, including having a valid passport, proof of sufficient funds to support your stay, ties to your home country that will compel your return, a clean criminal record, and good health.

You’ll also need to confirm the purpose and duration of your planned visit fall within the permitted scope for a visitor visa. It’s also wise to verify you have all necessary supporting documents ready before applying, such as a letter of invitation, and travel booking confirmations, bank statements showing available funds, and any other evidence to bolster your application’s credibility in the eyes of visa officers. Meeting all prerequisites is key for visa approval.

Prepare Application Forms & Documents

The second step is to prepare all the necessary application forms and supporting documents required for your Canada visa application. This includes completing the application for a temporary resident visa, gathering proof of financial support like recent bank statements, and getting a letter of invitation if visiting family or friends.

You also need to prepare an itinerary of your planned trip, obtain travel medical insurance, provide a letter from your employer confirming your job and approved leave, and collect other identity documents like passport photocopies, passport photos, birth certificates, etc.

Complete Biometrics and Potential Medical Exam

The third step is to complete your biometrics and potential medical exam as required for your Canada visa photo size requirements application. This involves visiting an approved clinic to provide fingerprints and have your facial photo taken to verify your identity. You may also need to complete an immigration medical exam by an authorized physician to ensure you meet health standards.

Having these biometrics and medical checks done promptly will avoid delays in the Canada visa photo size requirements processing. The clinics upload the results directly to the visa office to add to your application file for consideration.

Submit Finalized Application

Once you have prepared all the necessary application forms, supporting documents, biometrics, and medical checks, the next step is to submit your complete Canada visa application package. This can be done by mailing paper forms to the visa office or submitting an online e-application through the official government portal.

Be sure to include the application processing fee payment. Submitting a complete application with no missing documents or information is crucial so there are no delays and your Canada visa is processed promptly after submission. You will receive an acknowledgment confirming visa office receipt to start the assessment.

Account for Average Processing Time

After submitting your complete Canada visa application package, the next important step is to account for the average processing time. Standard processing can take multiple weeks or months depending on the visa office workload and whether additional screening is required. 

Check current processing times at the time of application and anticipate delays, particularly during peak seasons. Have contingency funds available to support yourself during processing. Avoid making concrete travel plans until your visa is approved, as you cannot enter Canada without the physical visa in your passport. Planning ahead for processing times will prevent difficulties if approval takes longer than hoped.

Respond to Any Additional Requests

It is common for Canada visa officers to request additional information after reviewing an application. This may include asking for more proof of funds, a more detailed travel itinerary, or documentation to confirm family relationships or employment status.

Respond promptly and completely to any such requests rather than ignoring or refusing. Additional info can clarify points to help avoid a rejected application. Being responsive demonstrates a sincere intent to visit temporarily as claimed. 

Not providing requested info can lead officers to doubt visa eligibility and refuse the application. Responding promptly aids the chance of approval.

Check Application Status Online

After submitting your visa application, you can go online to the Government of Canada’s website to check the status. You will need the application number provided at submission. The online tool will show what stage your application is at, for example, if it is still processing, if further information is needed, if a decision has been made, or if your passport is ready for pick-up.

Checking online allows you to get real-time updates on your application rather than waiting to be contacted. Monitoring the status regularly makes it less likely you’ll miss any important notifications.

Collect a Passport with a Visa

The VAC agent will verify your documents and release your passport complete with the official Government of Canada visitor visa affixed inside. Check all details are accurate before leaving. With your visa secured and passport in hand, you are cleared to book travel to Canada within the authorized period.

Steps To Apply For a Canada Visa from Dubai

  • Download the application form for Canada Visa in Dubai from the official IRCC website
  • Download the checklist for Canada Visa support documents also from the same site
  • Print the application form on bond quality, non-glossy white paper. You are recommended to use a good quality laser printer so that the ink does not smudge. Smudged or blurry applications will be delayed or rejected, as will applications that are printed out on inferior paper that could tear any minute.
  • Make sure that the barcodes appear only on the last page of your visa application form. Ensure that the barcodes appear clear and free of smudges if any. If the barcodes are not clear, this may slow down your application process considerably. Keep the barcoded sheet on top of all your application forms and supporting documents. Your barcode is your visa application form’s computer identity.

Canada Visa from Dubai – Requirements as Per IRCC Website

  • Two recent passport-size photographs in color. Your passport photos can be of either matte or semi-matte finish. A white background is mandatory with 80% assured face coverage. The size required for a Canadian visa is 35mm x 45mm. Make sure that the photograph is no older than 3 months and is a good representation of what you look like at the time of visa application.
  • Your passport must be valid for at least three months from the date you arrive in Canada
  • Ensure that at least 2 pages are blank in your passport for visa stamping.
  • The Canadian government requires a No Objection letter from your employer, in original, stating your salary, designation, joining date, and travel purpose.
  • If you’re not working anywhere, then be sure to attach your income records, bank statements and tax documents along with your Canadian visa application form set.
  • If you’re in business, please carry a Valid Trade License copy, and a letter introducing yourself, indicating your monthly income, partner details and their passport numbers and so on.
  • You’ll also need a detailed Canadian itinerary and a return ticket.
  • If you have a letter from a local sponsor, it’s an advantage, though it’s not mandatory. It just makes your case stronger to have a local sponsor within Canada. This local sponsor can be a native Canadian or an immigrant who’s working in Canada and paying annual taxes.

Note: If for any reason, you are unable to provide the documents listed in the official IRCC website, sign the waiver form which you can find on the website and submit it along with your application form. Failure to provide this signed waiver might result in further delay in your application for a Canadian visa. Also, inform your Rayna representative of the failure to submit any of the required supporting documents.

Canada’s Biometrics

Along with submitting your visa application form, it has become mandatory to provide your biometrics at the visa application center (since July 31′ 2018). Biometrics for Canada visa includes fingerprints and photos. You can walk-in to the center without a prior appointment for providing your biometrics. However, in this case, you cannot anticipate the amount of time you would have to wait for the entire process to be completed. On the other hand, if you take a prior appointment, the service would be faster and you would be able to complete the process quickly.

Things to Know Before Applying for Canada Visa from Dubai

  • You’re advised to read the privacy policy on the IRCC site and make sure you don’t do anything that goes against the policy.
  • The fee for the Canadian visa is as stipulated in the IRCC visa fee list. Pay the fees as per the instructions provided in the visa application form.
  • You can submit the completed application form to your local Rayna representative. Your Rayna representative will validate the documents you’ve submitted against the visa documents checklist and work with you if you need to obtain further documents.
  • You will need to submit your biometrics at the Canadian Embassy. Your Rayna representative will help you with this at the time of submitting your application.

The Canada tourist visa cost  is payable online using a credit  or debit card. It is crucial to  know that the Canada visa cost is non-refundable, even  if your application is  rejected. When you pay  the charge, you will be given a receipt, which you  should save as confirmation of  payment. Once the  money is received, the Canada visa processing time for your application will  begin.

Step-5 Submit your application and wait for a decision

You can  submit your visa application online after paying the visa  cost. Before submitting, double-check  all of the information you’ve  supplied. After you  submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email with a tracking  number. This number can be  used to track the status of your  application. The processing  period for a tourist visa to Canada from Dubai  varies, however it normally takes approximately 15-20 business  days. The Canadian  embassy may contact you during this period  for more information or to organize an  interview. You will be contacted  via email once a decision is made on your  application. If your  application is granted, your visa will be sent to you  through email or  courier.

Let’s Learn a Bit More About Canada

Finally, the world is out of the clutches of the pandemic, and people are slowly returning to their normal lives. It seems that they want to explore the world like never before, thanks to the two years of lockdown. While searching for the countries ideal for spending their holidays, Canada tops the list with the longest ski seasons, incredible natural wonders and numerous UNESCO world heritage sites. But, of course, they are just a few numbers. We will give you more reasons to visit Canada through this article. And we will also help you understand the steps involved in getting a tourist visa for Canada from Dubai. So without wasting any time, let’s start.

Great outdoors

Canada boasts scenic beauty with splendid coastlines, magnificent mountains and picture-perfect forests. Each of its regions is different from the others and has a unique nature. It is home to icefields, mountains, beaches and coastlines. You will have plenty of outdoor things to explore in Canada and can indulge in many adventurous activities. Once there, try to explore villages more than the cities as you will find more things laid for you there compared to the cities. You are surely going to turn off your phone and immerse in its natural beauty abundantly.

Mouth watering food 

Since Canada is a diverse nation, you can also see its cuisines’ diversity. It will also allow you to explore various innovative dishes you might not have seen in your life before. You must also visit places like Ontario and Nova Scotia, where you can taste the local beer prepared by the natives. Restaurants in Canada specifically use ingredients cultivated in their farmlands, along with some fantastic seafood dishes. You must try out their dining options because they are as picturesque as they can ever be. Finally, don’t forget to taste their national dish, poutine, during your Canada tour. This thick hot gravy has chips smothered over it and is served with cheese curds or cheese sauce. 

Yukon’s northern light

If you ever want to witness northern light, head straight to Yukon in Canada, as it has the most extended season that exhibits spectacular light shows in the sky. Since most of its territory is beyond the Arctic Circle, you can see northern lights on most clear nights. The city has short winter days similar to the UK mainly due to its location, and hence you will have more opportunity to see lights here. But apart from northern lights, there are many other things to experience in Yukon, like national parks, scenic towns, mountain ranges and abundant wildlife. It is ideal for visiting the city during July and August as you can enjoy their annual Dawson City music festival during that time. 

One of the main reasons people prefer visiting Canada is its rich wildlife. Its tiny village, Churchill, may seem like a remote town, but it is the favourite place of animal lovers, as they come in large numbers to see polar bears. Apart from them, you can also spot wolves, cougars and many other animals all over the country. Its marine life is also worth praising as its oceans are home to Minke Whales, Oscars, Harbour Porpoises, Humpback Whales, Harp Seals, Harbour Seals and many others. 

Friendly natives

Canada has the credit of being one of the friendliest countries in the world. Canadians are proud to show off their country as they are so much in love with it. So in case you get lost or something, you must directly ask the locals over there as they are always ready to help under all circumstances. Even in places like Quebec, which comes under the French province, you will be welcomed with open arms.

Everything you need to know about getting a tourist visa for Dubai

It’s fairly easy….

Thinking of visiting Dubai, but you’re not sure how to get a tourist visa? Perhaps you already live in this gorgeous city and want to share it with family and friends, but aren’t sure how to go about securing the ever-important visa. For some it’s as easy as showing up at the airport, for others, there is a process that needs to be followed.

Here is everything you need to know about getting a tourist visa for Dubai.

No visa required

Citizens of the GCC areas do not require any sort of visa to enter Dubai. You simply need to provide your passport or your national ID at the point of entry and you will be granted entrance.

Visa on arrival

If you fall into this category, you’re in luck because there are certain countries that can simply arrive at Dubai International Airport and receive a tourist visa, on arrival.

There are a total of 50 countries that receive visas on arrival. Some include The United Kingdom (UK), The United States of America (USA), and countries that are part of the EU. For some countries you will be eligible for a 30-day visa, and for others a 90-day visa, with the possibility of extension.

Indian citizens who are holders of tourist visas from the USA, green cards, or have a residence visa in the UK or EU will also receive a visa on arrival, for 14 days, provided that the green card and residence visas have been valid for more than six months.

If you are a Mexican passport holder, you will be granted a multiple-entry visa on arrival. Your visa is valid for up to 180 days and is valid for six months from the date that the visa has been issued.

The list of countries that are able to attain a tourist visa on arrival in Dubai or the UAE may change from time to time and so you can easily see if you are eligible for a tourist visa on arrival by following the steps here .

Pre-arranged visa

When you do not fall under the above categories that means you need to apply for a tourist visa before you enter Dubai. This can be done in a number of ways.

You can easily apply directly through certain airlines including FlyDubai and Emirates . Alternatively, you can organise a tourist visa through licensed travel agents, tour operators and the hotel you will be staying at.

It is important to note that you cannot apply for a tourist visa through the UAE Embassy, one of the organisers mentioned above will apply for your visa on your behalf through the visa-issuing authorities here in Dubai.
