New visa requirements for citizens of Mexico, Brazil, Bulgaria and Romania

November 2015
Business immigration and international mobility

As of March 15, 2016, certain travellers from Mexico, Brazil, Bulgaria and Romania will no longer require a temporary resident visa (TRV) to enter Canada.

To qualify as TRV-exempt travellers, citizens from Mexico, Brazil, Bulgaria and Romania must have held a TRV in the last 10 years or hold a valid US non-immigration visa. A TRV is an official document issued by a Canadian visa office that is affixed in the foreign traveller’s passport to show that he or she has met the requirements for admission to Canada as a visitor. A US non-immigrant visa is an official document affixed in the foreign traveller’s passport that permits such traveller to travel to the United States during the validity of the visa on a temporary basis (i.e., tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work, or study).
