We are excited to announce that according to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) as of November 22, 2014  Chilean citizens no longer require a visa to visit Canada for a short period of time. This means that Chilean visitors can now stay in Canada for up to six months without having a visa.

“The embassy is doing an amazing effort, promoting education in Canada and creating awareness of the destination,” said Jimmy Battaglia, ILAC Marketing Director – Latin America. “We are excited to share these news and sure that it gives us and our agents an opportunity to further deepen Canada-Chile relations and promote Canada as a great study destination.”

According to the CIC’s statistics, 10,500 Chilean citizens were issued a visa to visit Canada in 2013. Chile also meets Canada’s criteria for a visa exemption which is based on migration trends, border management issues, socio-economic indicators and many more.

Chilean citizens who would like to study for more than six months or work in Canada will still have to apply for the appropriate permits, which they can easily do online.

Nos emociona poder anunciar que a partir del 22 de Noviembre del 2014 y según el Departamento de Inmigración de Canadá (CIC), los ciudadanos Chilenos no requerirán visa para visitar Canadá por corto tiempo. Los visitantes Chilenos pueden ahora estar en Canadá por hasta seis meses sin necesidad de una visa.

 

Listen to the ILAC Radio Podcast with a special guest David Orman, Immigration Lawyer:

“La embajada está haciendo un esfuerzo enorme en promover la educación en Canadá y creando conciencia sobre el destino”, dijo Jimmy Battaglia, Director de Mercadeo para Latinoamérica en ILAC. “Estamos emocionados de compartir esta noticia y estamos seguros que esto representa una excelente oportunidad tanto para nosotros como para nuestras agencias en el esfuerzo de profundizar la relación Chile-Canadá y promover Canadá como un excelente destino educativo”

Según estadísticas del CIC, 10,500 ciudadanos Chilenos recibieron una visa para visitar a Canadá durante el 2013. Chile cumple con el criterio de excepción de visa el cual se basa en tendencias de migración, solución de problemas en fronteras, indicadores socio-económicos y más.
Los estudiantes Chilenos que deseen estudiar por más de seis meses o trabajar en Canadá tendrán que seguir aplicando a la visa correspondiente lo cual pueden hacer en línea.
