IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON VISAS AND ENTRY INTO CANADA
After you have registered for the conference please request:
- Official letter of recognition of ISAE 2018 provided by the Canada Border Services Agency
- A letter of invitation to attend the ISAE 2018 Congress containing The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Special Event Code.
The following information is provided for the sole purpose of assistance. The conference organisers cannot be held responsible for any change in the information. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to ultimately validate this information with official sources, some of which are indicated in this document.
Attendance at a conference such as ISAE 2018 is considered to be a cross-border business activity and therefore you will be considered a business visitor.
Submission of Visa Applications:
Canada does not have a visa office in every country so it is important that delegates visit the website of the visa office responsible for processing their visa applications. Information is available on the IRCC website on how to submit a visa application and the documentation required.
Delegates are encouraged to submit their visa applications well in advance of the date of the event.
Please visit the IRCC website for information on the time it takes to process visa applications at the various visa offices.
Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
Visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens, and travellers with a valid Canadian visa.
