Visa requirements for Foreigners

You must apply directly to the high commission for this visa. No third party can assist.

 

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports do not need a visa for short stays as tourists or on business. This does not apply to persons holding Canadian "Travel Documents" (1951 convention refugees); or to persons with foreign (non-Canadian) passports and Canadian Permanent Resident cards. This does not apply to Canadians who are using non-Canadian passports, or to Canadians going for work or study or any other non-tourist/business reason.
