Remind international attendees to apply early
With significant growth in the number of people wanting to visit Canada, applying early is more important than ever. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is reminding special event and conference organizers to encourage international participants to plan ahead and apply early for Canadian travel documents.
International participants should review Canada’s entry requirements to find out which travel documents they will need to visit Canada, such as a visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), and apply early. Participants can also find information about visiting Canada for business here.
IRCC has prepared handouts and social media messaging to help you share this important reminder. We encourage you to spread the word via your professional networks, websites, social media accounts and in client communications to help minimize stress and ensure a smooth travel experience for visitors to Canada.
Posters and shareable images are also available to remind all travellers to Canada to apply early if they need an eTA or visa. If you would like electronic copies of any of these products, please contact IRCC at Outreach-Rayonnement@cic.gc.ca.
