    Been trying to apply for a visitor visa to Canada. Am Kenyan. I want to travel in December.
    My office has tried to download the recommended PDF file but the application form still cannot download. We already downloaded the PDF viewer, that makes other sites now accesible except this application form.

    I called the Canada-Kenya high commission and the lady insists that ALL the details are on the site. Applying online looked like an option for me but am competing with power cuts.

    I sent emails to the embassy and no reply, this is a week now. Am getting desperate and disappointed. I called the commision today and the lady says that I look for someone to help…….

    Now am here, looking around for Kenyans who have applied even, to tell me how things go at the Canadian Embassy.

    Please help.

      Hello Jacky,

      I am sorry to hear of your difficulties in obtaining a Visitor Visa to enter Canada. The embassy in your country should be able to provide you with the necessary application materials, and as you said, you can try applying online, but if you are still having difficulty or need help making a strong application (as visitor visa’s are notoriously difficult to obtain) then we would be happy to guide you through this process. Please fill out our free online assessment form and one of our immigration professionals will be in touch with you shortly

      Hello Ahmed

      This letter seems suspicious to me. It is not from the Canadian government. I would be very careful with this one. I am not familiar with CIFA. You should check to see whether they are a registered and licensed immigration consulting firm before you hire them. Good look.
