Canadian Embassy Information: Where can I apply for Canadian Immigration or Visas?

Canadian Embassy Information

In the next number of blogs we will be posting information about Canadian Embassies abroad. We think this information will be helpful to those wishing to apply for immigration and visas to Canada from overseas. Addresses, phone numbers, websites, and general information will be posted for you convenience .

We will also try to add up to date information about the Embassies as they come available.

At what Canadian Embassy Can I apply?

Under the regulations of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, applicants for Canadian permanent residence are required to apply at a Canadian Embassy of their Nationality. There are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if you are in a country where you are on work or study status, you could apply to a Canadian Embassy there. Also if you are applying for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) such as a Work Permit or Study Permit, you can file your applications to Canadian Embassies outside your place of nationality.

Please stay tuned for more Canadian Embassy information from around the world!

      Hello Adam. Thank you for writing to us. Your best option would be if you had someone in Canada who met the qualifications to be able to sponsor you. Having sufficient funds to support yourself while you are in Canada is essential.
      Best of luck, Vahe

    I’m from Bulgaria. Me and my husband want to work in Canada. He has relatives there and they will send us an invitation as required. What we need to do? As far as I read we need to call to the Canadian Embassy in Romania and they will send us documents. Then there will be an interview. And that’s all that I know. Would you please give me some more information? Thank you!

    My mom was refused 4 times to get a TRV to Canada. The, most recently is yesterday. It was so sad. I do wish her to visit her 4 grandchildren, four lovely girls. However, it is so sad. She was refused, refused, and refused….. Can you help her?

    1. Michael Niren

      I am sorry about all these TRV refusals. TRVs can be difficult cases. We would be happy to assist. Feel free to contact us at [email protected]

    My wife and I have been planning to work in Canada. She is an IT professional and I work in the field of hospitality outfit. How can we be assisted?

    1. Alicia Kim

      Dear Fred Nwegete,

      If you are looking to work temporarily in Canada, you may apply for a Work Permit. To apply for a work permit, you must have a job offer from a Canadian employer and your employer needs to obtain a positive labour market opinion for your position.

      If you wish to apply for Permanent Residence, you may apply as a Skilled Worker. To do so, you should have either a valid job offer in Canada or one year of continuous full-time paid work experience in one of the occupations listed on the Canadian National Occupational Classification. I would need more information regarding your employment to determine the eligibility for you and your wife.

      Hope this helps.


    I am planning to visit Canada for 3 weeks to visit my mother in Canada. How can I visit her and how can she sponsor me?

    1. Alicia Kim

      Dear Abhishek,

      In order to visit Canada, you need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa. Depending on where you are applying from, you should satisfy all the requirements of the visa office responsible for your area.

      In order for your mother to sponsor you, your mother needs to be either a citizen or permanent resident of Canada and must apply to sponser you. You must also apply for permanent residence at the same time.

    Many Thanks,
    Marina Jorgensen
