Visitor Visa

Program overview.

Visitor Visa:

If you are looking to enter Canada as a visitor, you will need to have a Canadian visitor visa .

Getting your visitor visa approved allows you to get a temporary resident’s status in Canada.

However, there are a few things people need to know to check if they qualify for the visitor visa or not.

This is what this article aims to focus on.

Details about the Canadian Visitor Visa:

A Canadian visitor visa allows foreign nationals to enter Canada as temporary residents.

Canada offers both multiple entry and single entry visitor visas.

The only difference between these two types is that the single entry visa grants you access to visit Canada for one time only. In contrast, multiple entry visa grants you access to visit Canada for multiples times.

For example, if you have a single entry visa and you leave Canada after visiting it, you will need another visa to go back there.

A multiple entry visa, however, allows you to visit Canada multiple times if you have exited the country.

Both of these visa types allow you to stay in Canada for a maximum of 6 months.

At the port of entry, an officer will stamp your passport and put a date in it which will highlight the date you must leave by.

The officer may also give you a document called a visitor record. This is a document that an officer issues to you to restrict or extend your stay in Canada.

However, if you do not get a stamp on your passport, you can stay in Canada for a total of 6 months, or until your passport expires.

The visa is issued by the Canadian High Commission upon submission of the correct paperwork.

Individuals who are not deemed inadmissible may apply for a Canadian visitor visa.

If you are wondering what makes a person inadmissible, then it refers to those people involved in the activities mentioned below. These people cannot apply for a Canadian visitor visa:

  • Involved in a criminal activity
  • Committed human rights violations
  • Involved in an organized crime
  • Misrepresentation
  • Medical reasons
  • Financial reasons

After that, you need to have the following documents and qualities to qualify for a Canadian visa:

You will need a valid travel document such as a passport to get the visitor visa.

You may also need a letter of invitation and medical documents, in a few cases, to get your visitor visa.

Background:

You need to have a clean profile, free from criminal activities and human rights violations, to qualify for the visitor visa.

You need to be in good health.

You need to convince the immigration officer that you have strong ties with your home country and that you will go back to your own country after your limited stay in Canada.

To convince the officer, these things help:

  • Proof that you have a job in your homeland you need to go back to
  • Proof that you have assets in your homeland you need to go back to
  • Proof that you have a family in your homeland you need to go back to

This is the most important factor in deciding whether or not you are given a Canadian visitor visa.

If you can prove that you will go back to your country after your stay in Canada, it is easier to get the visa.

Canada doesn’t want people who plan on settling there on a visitor visa.

You also need to have enough money to support your stay in Canada.

You don’t want to be asking for any help while in Canada such as social assistance.

This is all there is to get the Canadian visitor visa.

If you are looking to apply for the Canadian visitor visa from Pakistan, we at Sun have helped hundreds of people get their applications approved.

SUN has 30+ years of experience in Canadian Immigration and is a registered member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). We will prepare your Visitor Visa case in a professional manner to increase your probability of success.

How to Apply for a Canadian Visit Visa from Pakistan

Home » Tourism » How to Apply for a Canadian Visit Visa from Pakistan

In This Post – Types of Canadian visas – What is TRV? – Types of TRV – Eligibility criteria – Multiple Entry vs Single Entry – Required documents – How to apply – Visa fees – Processing time

Lauded as one of the most livable countries in the world, Canada usually retains a high ranking on every traveller’s bucket list. From boasting snow-covered mountain peaks and breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls to offering both a simple countryside lifestyle as well as meticulously planned cosmopolitan cities, this North American country attracts legions of tourists every year. It is also a top-rated tourist destination among those living in Pakistan. So, if you are planning a trip to the beautiful country, you’ll first need to obtain a Canada Visitor Visa. 

Since the visa application process can be rather overwhelming and may even appear a little daunting for green passport holders, we’ve brought you a detailed guide on how to apply for a Canadian visa from Pakistan for the purpose of tourism.

Unless you are a dual-national and hold the nationality of Canada, the United States or any other country apart from Pakistan, you will most likely have to get a visit visa for Canada to be able to travel there. However, if you are a dual-nationality holder, you may only need an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) to be able to enter the country. 

Before we discuss the eligibility criteria for Canada Visitor Visa, application requirements and process, let’s take a look at the main types of Canadian visas that one can apply for.

Types of Canadian Visas

Types of Canadian Visas

These are the different types and categories of visas offered by the Canadian government. 

  • Visitor visas
  • Student visas
  • Business Immigrant visas
  • Express Entry Program visas
  • Permanent Residence visas

If you are planning to apply for a Canadian visa from Pakistan, you must first figure out which of these visas fit the motive of your visits. If you are only travelling to meet your family members, friends or for recreational purposes, you’ll have to apply for a Canada Visit Visa. On the other hand, if you’re planning to study or work in Canada, you may have to obtain a Student Visa or Work Visa instead. These are also called Temporary Visas. Permanent residence visas, business immigrant visas and express entry program visas are all types of permanent visas where the applicant shows his or her intent to stay in the country for a longer period of time.

You must select the type of visa that best suits your purpose of visit. However, we’ll be focusing on Visitor Visa, which is a Temporary Resident Visa, better known as TRV.

Canadian Temporary Resident Visa (TRV)

how to apply for Canada visa from Pakistan

As the name suggests, these visas are issued to people who want to visit Canada for a short period of time (six months or less). Canada Visitor Visa is usually obtained for the purposes of tourism, meeting family and business etc. You cannot seek a job or join a study program while in Canada on this visa. Similarly, you cannot apply for Canadian citizenship, claim health coverage and other benefits, or apply for any government documents during your stay in the country.

If you have secured admission in a short-term study program that will end within six months, you may apply for a Canadian visitor visa after clarifying your purpose of visit.

Types of Canadian Temporary Resident Visas (TRV)

Types of Canadian Temporary Resident Visas (TRV)

Here are some of the main categories of Temporary Resident Visas based on the purpose of the visit:

Canada Visitor Visa: It is the most common type of visa people in Pakistan apply for. It is also called Canada Tourist Visa.

Canada Super Visa : This type of visa allows parents and grandparents of Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents to visit their family for up to two years at a time

Canada Diplomatic and Official Visa: Governmental officials and diplomats can obtain this visa to visit Canada for official purposes

Canada Courtesy Visa: This visa is issued to government officials and diplomats who do not qualify for the Diplomatic and Official Visa 

Facilitation Visa : Canadian citizens with dual nationalities who do not have their Canadian passports can enter the country on this visa

Business Persons and Business Delegations Visa : This type of TRV is issued to business executives and delegations who intend to visit Canada to attend seminars, workshops, meetings, conference and participate in trade shows etc.

Dual Intent Visa : This category of visa is issued to people who intend to apply for a permanent resident visa during their stay in Canada. 

Eligibility Criteria for Canada Visitor Visa 

Eligibility Criteria for Canada Visitor Visa 

This is the primary criteria to be eligible to get a visitor visa for Canada (or any other type of temporary visa, for that matter).

  • The primary applicant must be at least 18 years old 
  • Have a government-issued passport with at least one blank page to stamp visa (excluding the last page) 
  • The passport must be valid for at least six months
  • Have identity, education and family documents translated in English or French
  • No criminal history, human rights violations or immigration-related convictions 
  • Have enough funds to cover the stay in Canada as well as pay the visa application and processing fees
  • Have enough ties in Pakistan (such as family, job, university etc.) to convince visa officers that the applicant will leave Canada at the end of his or her visit

Apart from the eligibility criteria mentioned above, there are some specific requirements that have to be met in order to apply for a Canadian tourist visa from Pakistan.

  • You must have an itinerary of the places will be visiting in Canada
  • Details of flights and hotel bookings
  • In case you are planning to stay with family members or friends, their details will be required as well 

Please note that these requirements may vary on a case-to-case basis. Although you’ll be provided with a complete list of documents that need to be submitted once you sign up on the official Government of Canada website for Immigration and Citizenship, it is important to mention that failure to meet these requirements may result in rejection of your visa applications. In some cases, however, the visa officer may ask you to submit additional proof to their consulate.

Multiple Entry Visa vs Single Entry Visa

How to Apply for Canadian Visit Visa from Pakistan

All Canada Visitor Visa applicants are initially considered for a multiple entry visa, which allows them to enter the country multiple times within a certain duration. 

The multiple entry visa is usually valid for 10 years and lets you stay in Canada for a period of six months at a time. Meanwhile, the single entry visa allows you to visit Canada only once. 

These visas are issued at the discretion of the visa officer and depends largely on your purpose of visit, previous travel history, ties in Canada, and other factors. 

It is also pertinent to mention that whether you are granted a multiple or single entry visa, the border officer may stamp a date on your passport or give you a document called visitor record, showing the date by which you need to leave Canada. This stamp might allow you to stay in Canada for a period shorter than 6 months. 

List of Required Documents 

Here is a checklist of documents required to apply for a Canadian visa from Pakistan. These documents must either be in English or French and may vary with each situation.

  • Valid passport
  • Identity documents (such as National Identity Card, Family Registration Form, etc.)
  • Duly filled Canada Tourist Visa Application form
  • Proof of funds in the form of a bank or another financial statement 
  • A complete travel itinerary including flight reservations and hotel bookings
  • A letter of invitation, if you are visiting family or friends in Canada
  • Proof of the relationship, if you are visiting your immediate family members such as siblings, parents and children
  • The immigration statuses of family and friends whom you’re visiting
  • Bank statements of your family or friends, if they are paying for your trip
  • Educational documents (degrees and diplomas)
  • Employment letter stating your contractual obligations which would require you to return to your home country
  • Property deed, lease or rental agreement to prove that you will leave Canada at the end of your visa
  • Court documents or police clearance certificates proving you have no prior criminal history
  • Medical records
  • Travel insurance
  • A Declaration Letter addressed to the Government of Canada explaining why they should issue you a visa
  • Two photographs taken within the last six months. Please make sure the photos comply with the Canada Photo Requirements

You can find out more about travel insurance in our detailed guide on the topic.

How to Apply for a Canada Visitor Visa

application process for canada visitor visa

There are two ways you can apply for a Canada visit visa from Pakistan

  • Online application
  • Manual application

It is recommended to apply for a Canadian visa online as it is more time and cost-effective. You won’t have to pay charges for courier nor will have to wait for mail delivery time. Instead, your application will be received and processed more quickly than the ones submitted manually. 

Moreover, when applying online, the system will notify you about missing documents or incomplete information. Similarly, you can quickly submit additional documents online if needed and check the status of your application through your online account. On the other hand, those applying in person will have to rely on regular mail to receive and send documents, which can be time-consuming. 

However, whether you apply online or in person, you will be required to visit the Canadian Consulate for an interview or biometrics, if required. 

Since most people apply for a Canadian tourist visa online, here’s a step-by-guide on how to go about it.

Step 1: Visit the official Government of Canada website, click on ‘Immigration and Citizenship,’ and then click on ‘Visit.’

Step 2: Click on ‘Find out if you need a visa.’ You will be redirected to a survey, which you can fill to find out if you need a Canada visitor visa or an ETA

Step 3: If you are found eligible for a visa, click on ‘Apply for a Visitor Visa’ button. It will redirect you to a webpage containing all the pertinent information about the application process. 

Step 4: Once you’ve read all the information, click on ‘Apply’ in the top navigation bar and select your chosen method of application submission. If you choose ‘on paper,’ you’ll be asked to download an application package. It will also include the complete Canada visitor visa checklist. However, if you choose the ‘online’ option, you will be redirected to another page. Click on ‘Apply for a visitor visa’ to proceed.

Step 5: If you are applying to get a visitor visa for Canada for the first time, you will have to click on the ‘Register’ button 

Step 6: You can now register for an IRCC secure account with either a GC Key or a Sign-In Partner. The latter requires your Canadian online banking information, so it’s recommended to register with a GC Key. Click on the required button to get redirected to the next page.

Step 7: Once logged in, you can start working on your online Canadian visa application form.

Step 8: Upload scans of required documents and submit your application along with the application fee. For this, you’ll need a valid Credit or Debit Card. 

Step 9: It takes about 5 days for an application to appear on your IRCC account. 

Step 10: If your application is reviewed positively, you will be required to visit the Canadian Consulate for an interview and/or biometric information. Please note that there is a separate fee for biometrics.

Step 11: Once your Canadian visa application is approved, you’ll have to submit your passport to the consulate for stamping. For online applicants, the consulate will notify you where to send your passport for further processing. You will also have to pay a processing fee. 

Step 12: Your stamped passport will either be handed over or mailed back to you. Once you receive it, check all the details to make sure there aren’t any errors. 

You can now start making arrangements for your travel.

Canadian Visitor Visa Application Fee

Wondering how much a visitor visa application for Canada costs? Well, here is a breakdown of Canadian visa fees in Pakistan for 2020.

Visa Processing Time

Canada visa processing time

The processing time for a Canadian visit visa from Pakistan is usually between 10 and 35 days.

Obtaining a visitor visa for Canada means that the Consulate in Pakistan has deemed you eligible to enter Canada. However, the Customs and Border Control officers in Canada have full authority to deny your entry and ask you to go back home, despite having a valid visa. Although this doesn’t happen without a justifiable reason, one must make sure to answer each question honestly and accurately to avoid any complications in the future.

Pakistan travel advice

Latest updates: The Health section was updated - travel health information (Public Health Agency of Canada)

Last updated: July 3, 2024 14:22 ET

On this page

Safety and security, entry and exit requirements, laws and culture, natural disasters and climate, pakistan - exercise a high degree of caution.

Exercise a high degree of caution in Pakistan due to the unpredictable security situation. There is a threat of terrorism, civil unrest, sectarian violence and kidnapping.

Regional advisory - Avoid all travel

  • the area within 50 km of the border with Afghanistan
  • the areas within 10 km of the borders with China, India and Iran
  • the areas within 10 km of the Line of Control, except the official border crossings at:
  • Wagah and the Grand Trunk Road leading there
  • Khunjerab Pass and the Karakorum Highway leading there
  • the section of the Karakoram Highway from Mansehra to Chilas
  • Pakistan-administered Kashmir
  • the province of Balochistan
  • the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, with the exception of the following districts where we advise against non-essential travel:

Karachi - Avoid non-essential travel

Avoid non-essential travel to the city of Karachi, due to violence and the risk of terrorism.

Back to top

The Government of Canada may not be in a position to provide consular assistance to Canadians in areas where:

  • there are serious security concerns
  • the Government of Pakistan prohibits entry
  • advance permission is required for entry

Security situation and elections

There have been ongoing political demonstrations since November 2022. Federal elections took place on February 8, 2024.

Security forces continue to be on high alert in the following cities:

The security situation is evolving and remains unpredictable.

  • Communication networks may be disrupted
  • Roadblocks could lead to significant disruptions to traffic and public transportation, including transit routes to airports

If you are in Pakistan:

  • avoid areas where demonstrations and large gatherings are taking place
  • always be aware of your surroundings when in public places
  • carry photo identification at all times
  • expect an increased presence of security forces
  • be prepared to change your travel plans on short notice
  • monitor local media to stay informed on the evolving situation
  • follow the instructions of local authorities, including curfew orders

Border area with India

The level of tension between Pakistan and India is susceptible to sudden changes. You could experience difficulties when travelling between the two countries and may be subject to scrutiny if officials from either country become aware that you have recently travelled to the other.

The security situation in the Kashmir region, especially along the Line of Control (LoC), which separates India-administered Kashmir in the south from Pakistan-administered Kashmir in the north, and along the working boundary that continues south toward Sialkot, remains volatile. Since September 2016, cross-border gunfire and shelling have been occurring sporadically along the LoC.

Although the Wagah border crossing linking Lahore, Pakistan, to Amritsar, India, is regularly used by international travellers, it remains vulnerable to attack. Security measures are in place. Visitors may experience long delays.

Border areas with Afghanistan, China and Iran

Border areas with Afghanistan, China and Iran often experience terrorist activity, smuggling and violence. With the exception of official border crossings, foreigners are prohibited from travelling within 50 kilometres of the border with Afghanistan.

Bandits in border areas with Afghanistan and Iran are usually involved in drug trafficking.

Sistan-Baluchistan in Iran, which borders Pakistan, is regularly affected by ethnic conflicts and is also a known route for smugglers. Foreign nationals have been the target of kidnappings.

Terrorist attacks may also occur in this province.

If you decide to travel overland to Iran and Afghanistan despite this warning:

  • travel only on main roads
  • travel in organized groups
  • avoid travel after dark

Balochistan

The security situation in the province of Balochistan remains unstable, due to a long-standing nationalist insurgency and government counter-insurgency operations. Insurgents and militants may target commercial spaces and foreigners, in particular those associated with the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Attacks on police and security forces occur frequently. Balochistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan, is also a known route for smugglers.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province

The security situation in Central and Western Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Province, including its capital Peshawar is unstable due to terrorism, sectarian and political violence and high levels of crime. North Waziristan, South Waziristan, and the Khyber District are particularly volatile and continue to be impacted by the security situation in Afghanistan. Attacks on security and military forces occur frequently. Civil unrest also takes place regularly.

Certain sectors of Karachi experience high levels of violence. These include:

  • Orangi Town

Extremist groups are present in some parts of the city and there have been terrorist attacks in recent years on high-profile targets, including the Stock Exchange and Chinese Consulate. Carefully plan any travel to, or in the city. Strikes and protest marches tend to take place in central areas of Karachi. These events may cause travel disruptions throughout the city and lead to violent civil unrest. Other criminal activities and violence that can occur in Karachi include carjacking, armed robbery, kidnapping and murder.

Gilgit-Baltistan

Clashes between protesters and security forces have occurred. Past demonstrations have led to traffic and public transport disruptions. Do not travel by road to Gilgit-Baltistan province.

Many parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province are unstable due to terrorism, violence, and crime rates, including Upper and Lower Chitral districts. Do not travel by road to this area.

Increased terrorist threat

On May 7, 2024, the U.S. Consulate General in Karachi issued the following security alert: "The U.S. Consulate General Karachi is aware of a threat of a terrorist attack at Karachi Port. In response to such situations, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates sometimes restrict access to certain areas for official U.S. government personnel. Karachi Port is temporarily restricted for official U.S. government personnel."

If you are in Karachi:

  • avoid the port and the surrounding area
  • monitor local media for the latest information

Security alert – United States Consulate General in Karachi

There is a high threat of terrorism in Pakistan. The security situation is fragile and unpredictable. Several terrorist groups are present and operate across the country. Incidents are typically attributed to extremism, ethnic divisions, sectarian strife, regional political disputes and the situation in neighbouring Afghanistan. Bombings, shootings and other terrorist attacks have been directed at a wide range of targets and have caused many deaths and injuries.

In the formerly Federal Administered Tribal Area (FATA) and in the province of Balochistan, attacks are frequent and are often directed at security and military forces.

Further attacks are likely. Attacks can take many forms, including:

  • targeted killings and kidnappings
  • armed assaults
  • suicide bombings
  • improvised explosive devices

Some attacks involve detailed planning to maximize casualties through multiple and consecutive explosions. Targets could include:

  • sects or minority groups
  • government and military assets and personnel
  • places of worship
  • airports and other transportation hubs and networks
  • public areas such as tourist attractions, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shopping centres, markets, hotels and other sites frequented by foreigners
  • elections-related events and polling stations
  • civil aviation facilities, including aircrafts

There is an increased risk of attack during religious holidays and days of national significance, such as:

  • National Day (March 23)
  • Independence Day (August 14)
  • the Islamic month of Muharram (particularly on the day of Ashura)
  • the Muslim holidays of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha

Expect heightened security measures and associated disruptions during these periods.

In Islamabad, you should:

  • keep a low profile, particularly in areas regularly frequented by foreigners
  • avoid the Lal Masjid Mosque (also known as the Red Mosque)
  • be particularly cautious in or around western-style restaurants and shopping centres
  • only stay in hotels that have stringent security measures in place, including metal detectors and closed security perimeters

Military activity

Stay away from areas where military or militant activity is taking place.

The risk of kidnapping for ransom is high, especially in Balochistan, Punjab and Sindh. Pakistani citizens are particularly at risk. Express kidnapping also takes place.

  • Use varied and unpredictable routes and schedules when moving from one place to another
  • Maintain a high level of vigilance at all times

Petty crime

Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and purse snatching, occurs. Cell phones, credit cards and passports are favourite targets. Credit card fraud is common.

  • Ensure that your personal belongings, passports other travel documents are secure at all times
  • Avoid showing signs of affluence
  • If travelling by car, keep valuable belongings out of sight, windows closed and doors locked
  • Avoid travelling after dusk, particularly in rural areas where road conditions are unsafe
  • Make arrangements to be met at the airport, especially if arriving after dark
  • Verify flight and airport operation details before travelling
  • Remain aware of the security situation on routes to and from airports

Demonstrations and civil unrest

Demonstrations take place regularly. Demonstrations can take place without warning, and some may take on an anti-western tone. They have the potential to suddenly turn violent. Deaths, injuries and widespread violence have occurred at such events. Demonstrations can also lead to disruptions to traffic and public transportation.

  • Avoid areas where demonstrations and large gatherings are taking place
  • Follow the instructions of local authorities
  • Monitor local media for information on ongoing demonstrations

Mass gatherings (large-scale events)

Women's safety

Women travelling alone may be subject to some forms of harassment and verbal abuse. Gender-based violence is common in Pakistan. Honour killings and forced marriages are frequently reported.

If you are the victim of a sexual assault, you should report it immediately to the nearest Government of Canada office.

  • Avoid travelling alone, especially at night
  • Remain particularly vigilant in less-frequented areas
  • Be careful when dealing with strangers or recent acquaintances

Advice for women travellers

2SLGBTQI+ persons

2SLGBTQI+ persons could be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sex characteristics. Human rights organizations have reported discrimination and violence being committed against 2SLGBTQI+ persons in Pakistan, including the denial of basic rights and services, sexual violence and murder. Many hotels and similar establishments may only allow “married couples” to stay together, and same-sex couples should be prepared to stay separately while travelling.

Forced marriages

Forced marriage affecting foreigners occurs. It sometimes occurs without the affected person's prior knowledge or consent.

Some Canadians have been forced into marital arrangements and have been detained against their will. They have been subjected to threats, intimidation and violence by family members.

If you're in Canada

If you're in Canada and you believe that you're being forced to travel overseas or to marry, you should call your local police for assistance.

If you're in Pakistan

If you're in Pakistan and you believe that you're being forced to marry, contact the High Commission of Canada to Pakistan in Islamabad. You may also contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre .

Family members may retain passports to prevent victims from returning to Canada.

  • Keep digital or physical copies of your travel documents in a safe place
  • General information and advice about forced marriage

Business deals can involve extortion and corruption. All business disputes, including those involving criminality, are subject to Pakistani legal proceedings. The High Commission of Canada cannot intervene on a Canadian's behalf in a private legal matter.

Overseas fraud

Trekking and climbing

No trekking is allowed in the closed zones located near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and near the Line of Control between Pakistan- and India-administered Kashmir. Trekking permits are required by the Government of Pakistan for peaks over 6000m, and in most national parks. Access to roads are limited, and often in very poor condition.

Only experienced climbers should go to the northern mountains of the Himalayas, Hindukush or Karakoram. Because of their great height, the Karakoram Mountains experience heavy glaciation, particularly on the southern, more humid slopes.

If you intend on engaging in trekking activities:

  • never do so alone and always hire an experienced guide from a reputable company
  • buy travel insurance that includes helicopter rescue and medical evacuation from remote areas
  • confirm that the air ambulance firm contracted has a local agent in Pakistan who can ensure that local rescue teams provide the required emergency services
  • ensure that your physical condition is good enough to meet the challenges of your activity
  • ensure that you're properly equipped and well informed about weather and other conditions that may pose a hazard
  • inform a family member or friend of your itinerary, including when you expect to be back to camp
  • know the symptoms of acute altitude sickness, which can be fatal
  • obtain detailed information on trekking routes or ski slopes before setting out and don't venture off marked trails or slopes

In case of air evacuation, advance payment of the total evacuation cost is required from the insurance company before rescue teams will perform rescue operations. The Government of Canada is unable to intervene, provide, or pay for rescue services.

Road travel

Road conditions.

In many urban areas, roads may be narrow, crowded and poorly lit, with limited signage and poor maintenance. Outside major highways and main cities, roads are mostly unpaved and four-wheel drive vehicles may be necessary.

Mountain roads may have steep drops and lack safety barriers.

Weather conditions can change quickly, particularly during winter. Snow, ice, fog, rain can lead to dangerous driving conditions and disrupt travel. Landslides caused by heavy rain can block or wash away roads.

  • Check local news and weather reports along your route before you travel

Driving habits

Drivers can be aggressive and reckless, and they do not respect traffic laws. Accidents are common. If an accident occurs and you feel that your safety is threatened, leave the area and report the accident to the nearest police station.

Checkpoints may be set up without warning.

Karakoram highway/Northern region

Sections can be very narrow with precipitous drops and are sometimes partially obstructed by rock and earth slides.

  • Travel on mountain roads only during daylight hours
  • Consult local authorities regarding road openings, particularly during the monsoon rains and winter seasons
  • Avoid the section of the Karakoram Highway from Mansehra to Chilas

If you chose to drive in Pakistan:

  • avoid driving after dark
  • keep doors locked and windows up at all times
  • leave a travel itinerary with a third party
  • carry photo identification to present at police checkpoints
  • be well prepared and equipped with gasoline, water, food and a cell phone
  • call the police if involved in an accident

Public transportation

There are frequent rail accidents due to low safety and maintenance standards. Railways have been targets for riots and terrorist attacks.

Avoid using public transportation including taxis and trains. If you must use public transportation:

  • use bus lines that provide two drivers if you're travelling long distances
  • use radio-controlled taxis from reputable companies
  • consider using taxi hailing apps in major cities

  • COVID-19 and International Travel - 13 March, 2024
  • Polio: Advice for travellers - 3 July, 2024

This section contains information on possible health risks and restrictions regularly found or ongoing in the destination. Follow this advice to lower your risk of becoming ill while travelling. Not all risks are listed below.

Consult a health care professional or visit a travel health clinic preferably 6 weeks before you travel to get personalized health advice and recommendations.

Routine vaccines

Be sure that your  routine vaccinations , as per your province or territory , are up-to-date before travelling, regardless of your destination.

Some of these vaccinations include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, varicella (chickenpox), influenza and others.

Pre-travel vaccines and medications

You may be at risk for preventable diseases while travelling in this destination. Talk to a travel health professional about which medications or vaccines may be right for you, based on your destination and itinerary. 

There is a risk of hepatitis A in this destination. It is a disease of the liver. People can get hepatitis A if they ingest contaminated food or water, eat foods prepared by an infectious person, or if they have close physical contact (such as oral-anal sex) with an infectious person, although casual contact among people does not spread the virus.

Practise  safe food and water precautions and wash your hands often. Vaccination is recommended for all travellers to areas where hepatitis A is present.

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease. It can spread quickly from person to person by direct contact and through droplets in the air.

Anyone who is not protected against measles is at risk of being infected with it when travelling internationally.

Regardless of where you are going, talk to a health care professional before travelling to make sure you are fully protected against measles.

Japanese encephalitis is a viral infection that can cause swelling of the brain.  It is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. Risk is very low for most travellers. Travellers at relatively higher risk may want to consider vaccination for JE prior to travelling.

Travellers are at higher risk if they will be:

  • travelling long term (e.g. more than 30 days)
  • making multiple trips to endemic areas
  • staying for extended periods in rural areas
  • visiting an area suffering a JE outbreak
  • engaging in activities involving high contact with mosquitos (e.g., entomologists)

  Hepatitis B is a risk in every destination. It is a viral liver disease that is easily transmitted from one person to another through exposure to blood and body fluids containing the hepatitis B virus.  Travellers who may be exposed to blood or other bodily fluids (e.g., through sexual contact, medical treatment, sharing needles, tattooing, acupuncture or occupational exposure) are at higher risk of getting hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for all travellers. Prevent hepatitis B infection by practicing safe sex, only using new and sterile drug equipment, and only getting tattoos and piercings in settings that follow public health regulations and standards.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious viral disease. It can spread from person to person by direct contact and through droplets in the air.

It is recommended that all eligible travellers complete a COVID-19 vaccine series along with any additional recommended doses in Canada before travelling. Evidence shows that vaccines are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. While vaccination provides better protection against serious illness, you may still be at risk of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19. Anyone who has not completed a vaccine series is at increased risk of being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 and is at greater risk for severe disease when travelling internationally.

Before travelling, verify your destination’s COVID-19 vaccination entry/exit requirements. Regardless of where you are going, talk to a health care professional before travelling to make sure you are adequately protected against COVID-19.

 The best way to protect yourself from seasonal influenza (flu) is to get vaccinated every year. Get the flu shot at least 2 weeks before travelling.  

 The flu occurs worldwide.

If you are bitten or scratched by a dog or other animal while travelling, immediately wash the wound with soap and clean water and see a health care professional. In this destination, rabies treatment may be limited or may not be available, therefore you may need to return to Canada for treatment.  

Before travel, discuss rabies vaccination with a health care professional. It may be recommended for travellers who are at high risk of exposure (e.g., occupational risk such as veterinarians and wildlife workers, children, adventure travellers and spelunkers, and others in close contact with animals). 

Polio (poliomyelitis) is an infectious disease that can be prevented by vaccination. It is caused by poliovirus type 1, 2 or 3. Wild poliovirus (WPV1) and/or circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV1 or cVDPV3)) is/are present in this destination.

Polio is spread from person to person and through contaminated food and water. Infection with the polio virus can cause paralysis and death in individuals of any age who are not immune.

Recommendations:

  • Be sure that your polio vaccinations are up to date before travelling. Polio is part of the routine vaccine schedule for children in Canada.
  • One booster dose of the polio vaccine is recommended as an adult .
  • Make sure that the polio vaccinations are documented on the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. This is the only document accepted as proof of vaccination. It is provided at Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres .

Safe food and water precautions

Many illnesses can be caused by eating food or drinking beverages contaminated by bacteria, parasites, toxins, or viruses, or by swimming or bathing in contaminated water.

  • Learn more about food and water precautions to take to avoid getting sick by visiting our eat and drink safely abroad page. Remember: Boil it, cook it, peel it, or leave it!
  • Avoid getting water into your eyes, mouth or nose when swimming or participating in activities in freshwater (streams, canals, lakes), particularly after flooding or heavy rain. Water may look clean but could still be polluted or contaminated.
  • Avoid inhaling or swallowing water while bathing, showering, or swimming in pools or hot tubs. 

Cholera is a risk in parts of this country. Most travellers are at very low risk.

To protect against cholera, all travellers should practise safe food and water precautions .

Travellers at higher risk of getting cholera include those:

  • visiting, working or living in areas with limited access to safe food, water and proper sanitation
  • visiting areas where outbreaks are occurring

Vaccination may be recommended for high-risk travellers, and should be discussed with a health care professional.

Travellers' diarrhea is the most common illness affecting travellers. It is spread from eating or drinking contaminated food or water.

Risk of developing travellers' diarrhea increases when travelling in regions with poor standards of hygiene and sanitation. Practise safe food and water precautions.

The most important treatment for travellers' diarrhea is rehydration (drinking lots of fluids). Carry oral rehydration salts when travelling.

Typhoid   is a bacterial infection spread by contaminated food or water. Risk is higher among children, travellers going to rural areas, travellers visiting friends and relatives or those travelling for a long period of time.

Travellers visiting regions with a risk of typhoid, especially those exposed to places with poor sanitation, should speak to a health care professional about vaccination.  

Insect bite prevention

Many diseases are spread by the bites of infected insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, fleas or flies. When travelling to areas where infected insects may be present:

  • Use insect repellent (bug spray) on exposed skin
  • Cover up with light-coloured, loose clothes made of tightly woven materials such as nylon or polyester
  • Minimize exposure to insects
  • Use mosquito netting when sleeping outdoors or in buildings that are not fully enclosed

To learn more about how you can reduce your risk of infection and disease caused by bites, both at home and abroad, visit our insect bite prevention page.

Find out what types of insects are present where you’re travelling, when they’re most active, and the symptoms of the diseases they spread.

There is a risk of chikungunya in this country.  The risk may vary between regions of a country.  Chikungunya is a virus spread through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Protect yourself from mosquito bites at all times. There is no vaccine available for chikungunya.

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever is a viral disease that can cause fever, pain and bleeding under the skin.  In some cases, it can be fatal.  It spreads to humans through contact with infected animal blood or tissues, or from the bite of an infected tick.  Risk is generally low for most travellers.  Protect yourself from tick bites and avoid animals, particularly livestock.  There is no vaccine available for Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever.

Cutaneous and mucosal   leishmaniasis   causes skin sores and ulcers. It is caused by a parasite spread through the bite of a female sandfly.

Risk is generally low for most travellers. Protect yourself from sandfly bites, which typically occur after sunset in rural and forested areas and in some urban centres. There is no vaccine or medication to protect against leishmaniasis.

  • In this country,   dengue  is a risk to travellers. It is a viral disease spread to humans by mosquito bites.
  • Dengue can cause flu-like symptoms. In some cases, it can lead to severe dengue, which can be fatal.
  • The level of risk of dengue changes seasonally, and varies from year to year. The level of risk also varies between regions in a country and can depend on the elevation in the region.
  • Mosquitoes carrying dengue typically bite during the daytime, particularly around sunrise and sunset.
  • Protect yourself from mosquito bites . There is no vaccine or medication that protects against dengue.

Animal precautions

Some infections, such as rabies and influenza, can be shared between humans and animals. Certain types of activities may increase your chance of contact with animals, such as travelling in rural or forested areas, camping, hiking, and visiting wet markets (places where live animals are slaughtered and sold) or caves.

Travellers are cautioned to avoid contact with animals, including dogs, livestock (pigs, cows), monkeys, snakes, rodents, birds, and bats, and to avoid eating undercooked wild game.

Closely supervise children, as they are more likely to come in contact with animals.

Human cases of avian influenza have been reported in this destination. Avian influenza   is a viral infection that can spread quickly and easily among birds and in rare cases it can infect mammals, including people. The risk is low for most travellers.

Avoid contact with birds, including wild, farm, and backyard birds (alive or dead) and surfaces that may have bird droppings on them. Ensure all poultry dishes, including eggs and wild game, are properly cooked.

Travellers with a higher risk of exposure include those: 

  • visiting live bird/animal markets or poultry farms
  • working with poultry (such as chickens, turkeys, domestic ducks)
  • hunting, de-feathering, field dressing and butchering wild birds and wild mammals
  • working with wild birds for activities such as research, conservation, or rehabilitation
  • working with wild mammals, especially those that eat wild birds (e.g., foxes)

All eligible people are encouraged to get the seasonal influenza shot, which will protect them against human influenza viruses. While the seasonal influenza shot does not prevent infection with avian influenza, it can reduce the chance of getting sick with human and avian influenza viruses at the same time.

Person-to-person infections

Stay home if you’re sick and practise proper cough and sneeze etiquette , which includes coughing or sneezing into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand. Reduce your risk of colds, the flu and other illnesses by:

  •   washing your hands often
  • avoiding or limiting the amount of time spent in closed spaces, crowded places, or at large-scale events (concerts, sporting events, rallies)
  • avoiding close physical contact with people who may be showing symptoms of illness 

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) , HIV , and mpox are spread through blood and bodily fluids; use condoms, practise safe sex, and limit your number of sexual partners. Check with your local public health authority pre-travel to determine your eligibility for mpox vaccine.  

Tuberculosis is an infection caused by bacteria and usually affects the lungs.

For most travellers the risk of tuberculosis is low.

Travellers who may be at high risk while travelling in regions with risk of tuberculosis should discuss pre- and post-travel options with a health care professional.

High-risk travellers include those visiting or working in prisons, refugee camps, homeless shelters, or hospitals, or travellers visiting friends and relatives.

Medical services and facilities

Quality of care varies greatly throughout the country. Good health care is available in a small number of hospitals and clinics in some major cities, including in Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. Basic non-emergency medical care is available in major cities but is limited in rural areas. Emergency services, including ambulances, are virtually non-existent in most of Pakistan. Most medical facilities require prepayment in cash.

Medical evacuation can be very expensive and you may need it in case of serious illness or injury.

Make sure you get travel insurance that includes coverage for medical evacuation and hospital stays.

Travel health and safety

Keep in Mind...

The decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the traveller. The traveller is also responsible for his or her own personal safety.

Be prepared. Do not expect medical services to be the same as in Canada. Pack a   travel health kit , especially if you will be travelling away from major city centres.

You must abide by local laws.

Learn about what you should do and how we can help if you are arrested or detained abroad .

International Child Abduction

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an international treaty. It can help parents with the return of children who have been removed to or retained in certain countries in violation of custody rights. It does not apply between Canada and Pakistan.

If your child was wrongfully taken to, or is being held in Pakistan by an abducting parent:

  • act as quickly as you can
  • consult a lawyer in Canada and in Pakistan to explore all the legal options for the return of your child
  • report the situation to the nearest Canadian government office abroad or to the Vulnerable Children's Consular Unit at Global Affairs Canada by calling the Emergency Watch and Response Centre

If your child was removed from a country other than Canada, consult a lawyer to determine if The Hague Convention applies.

Be aware that Canadian consular officials cannot interfere in private legal matters or in another country's judicial affairs.

How To Apply For A Canada Visa From Pakistan

Pakistan is not among Canada’s visa-free countries and its citizens cannot get a Visa on Arrival (VOA) at the airport. Hence, you need a valid visa to sightsee, visit, study, or work in any Canadian province or territory. With that taken into consideration, we’ll walk you through how to apply for a Canada visa from Pakistan.

You can apply for a Canadian visa through the High Commission of Canada in Islamabad or at a VFS Global Visa Application Centre (VAC). VFS has three VACs in Pakistan, located in Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore, respectively.

Whether you want to apply through the diplomatic mission or a visa application centre, the application process are alike. They are as follows:

Step 1: Locate the nearest diplomatic mission or VAC

Canada has only one foreign representative in Pakistan, specifically in Islamabad. On the other hand, VFS Global operates three VACs in Pakistan, where you can submit your Canadian visa application.

So you will have to locate the one nearest to you and request for assistance in booking an appointment.

Here are their respective locations and contact information:

  • High Commission of Canada in Pakistan: Diplomatic Enclave, Sector G-5,

Islamabad, Pakistan

Telephone: 92 (51) 208-6000

Email: [email protected] and [email protected]

  • Lahore Address: 20 Ex American Centre Building, Opposite Ganga Ram Hospital,

Queens Road, Lahore, Pakistan

Step 2: Gather the required documents

Depending on your purpose of visit to Canada, you need to assemble your application supporting documents and make clear photocopies.

The following are the documents needed to get a visa for Canada:

  • A valid Pakistani passport
  • Academic transcripts or certificates of previous study (Applicable only to international students)
  • A medical examination result to prove your good state of health
  • Police certificates
  • A Letter of Acceptance (LOA) issued by a university or college in Canada
  • An invitation letter from a Canadian resident who is your family member or from a host company, depending on why you need the visa

Step 3: Apply via Canada.ca

Next, create an online account on IRCC’s website and provide the required information to submit your visa application. You must also upload your supporting documents and pay the visa fee now.

If you are applying through VFS Global, you’ll need to skip this step and apply in person at the nearest visa application centre.

Step 4: Visit the diplomatic mission

This step requires you to visit the High Commission of Canada in Islamabad if you are invited for an interview. Ensure you keep to the appointment time, prepare well ahead, and dress appropriately.

Saudi Arabia has streamlined its tourist visa requirements for Pakistani travelers, now allowing applications with a bank statement showing a minimum monthly credit of $750.

This adjustment is part of Saudi Arabia’s broader strategy to boost tourism from Pakistan, targeting 2.7 million visitors in 2024, up from a 43% increase in arrivals in 2023, as per the Saudi Tourism Authority (STA).

To facilitate this growing interest, Saudi Arabia has opened six Tasheer offices across Pakistan in cities including Peshawar, Quetta, Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, and Multan. These offices provide comprehensive services such as visa application assistance, biometric enrolment, and passport delivery, with appointment scheduling available through the Tasheer website.

Moreover, Saudi Arabia now offers a transit visa for passengers flying via Saudia and Flynas, permitting up to 96 hours of exploration within the country. Additionally, a visa on arrival is available for travelers possessing a valid UK, US, or Schengen visa.

Further enhancing accessibility, Saudi Arabia last year introduced a one-year multiple-entry visa for Pakistanis. This visa caters to personal visits, including family events and spiritual journeys like Umrah, reflecting Saudi Arabia’s commitment to cultural and spiritual exchange.

The relaxed visa regulations are expected to significantly boost the number of Pakistani tourists exploring Saudi Arabia, enticing them with diverse attractions from Riyadh’s bustling metropolis and Jeddah’s cultural depth to the serene landscapes of the Red Sea and historical AlUla.
