Welcome to the Visa Section of the Embassy of Canada in Tunis. We provide temporary resident services to residents, nationals, or persons legally admitted to Tunisia and Libya.

A NEW visa application centre (VAC) opened in Tunis on April 25, 2013, and is located at Emeraude Building- Rue du Lac Wendermere – Les Berges du Lac 1, Tunis. Effective immediately, all temporary resident (visitor visa, study or work permit) or permanent resident travel document applications should be submitted either online or through the VAC. The visa office will not accept mail-ins and will only accept in person applications by appointment.
If you do not apply either online or through the VAC you need to schedule an appointment by email to submit application. You will not be able to submit an application without first obtaining an appointment. Please note that the current wait time for an interview is roughly two months.
