Which visa types are available in Canada?

Immigration officials say they have no choice but to check visa status on applicants.

“The visa office can’t accept anyone without a visa,” said Joanna McLeod, a spokesperson for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

She said the department doesn’t have the power to deny visas to people.

“So, to be clear, the department has no authority to deny an application for a visa or not,” she said.

“You are required to submit your passport, and that’s what you do with any information you have to do with Canada.”

McLeod says that if an application is refused, it would take about two months to get a response from Citizenship and Immigration.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has said it does not comment on specific cases, but said in an email that it has “zero tolerance for visa refusal.”

In an interview with CBC News, DFWITC spokesman Paul Gagnon said that while there are no restrictions on visas, “it is absolutely the responsibility of the visa officer to ensure that all appropriate documents are presented for the visa application.”

He said the agency’s role is to provide information and advice to the applicant.

“We do not have the authority to refuse visas,” Gagnons email said.

But McLeod said it is up to the visa office to decide what information is required.

“What we are doing is trying to make sure that they are doing the right thing,” she told CBC News.

In addition to the passport, visa and Canadian identification cards, an applicant’s application includes supporting documents, including a letter of support from a relative, a medical certificate or other documents from an authorized health care practitioner.

McLeod stressed that there is no reason to question an applicant or their decision to apply for a work permit or other visa.

She says that in most cases, the visa applicant has already been in Canada for six months.

But in rare cases, she says, the applicant can request an extension.

“There are cases where we can go over their file and make sure we’re meeting the standards of our country,” McLeod told CBC.

“They’re not doing anything wrong.”
