Please carefully read the Visiting Canada section of our website and the instruction guide provided below before you complete the application forms. The fee for processing your application is not refundable, so make sure you are eligible to get a Temporary Resident Visa before you apply. Please note that submitting a completed application and necessary supporting documents does not guarantee that you will receive a visa.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: A NEW visa application centre (VAC) opened in Abu Dhabi on May 1, 2013, and is located on Al Meena Street (Union National Bank Building). We encourage you to apply online or through the VAC as applications submitted directly to the visa office will take longer to process.

Important: This checklist includes all details of required supporting documents necessary to complete your application.
Complete the application. Your family members who also wish to visit Canada must apply by filling out their own Temporary Resident Visa application form. However, you may send all family member application forms in the same envelope with only one payment receipt for the total amount.
