VISA

VISA INFORMATION

Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an eTA, for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed. Eligible travelers can apply online for an eTA. Travelers will need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada. Find out more about Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp)

Countries that are not eligible under eTA may need to apply for a Visitor’s Visa. To check online – go to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp and click “Visit” from the menu. Attendees from the USA may check entry / exit requirements to Canada outlined in the U.S. Department of State Consular Information website. Proof of citizenship must be provided.

Letter of Invitation for Visa Purposes

An official Letter of Invitation to obtain a Visa and authorization to attend the International Conference and Expo on Crystallography & Novel Materials (OLCCNM-2020) will be issued ONLY after registration has been completed and full payment received by the Conference Secretariat.

Submission of Applications

Canada does not have a visa office in every country so it is important that delegates visit the website of the Canadian visa office responsible for processing their visa application. Information is available on the website on how to submit a visa application and the documentation required.

Processing times for visa applications vary depending on the visa office and the time of the year. Participants are encouraged to apply approximately 12 weeks in advance of their departure date to ensure they receive the visa in time.
