Visiting Canada for Rosh Hashanah in 2012?

The Jewish New Year is upon us and many people worldwide have relatives in Canada whom they wish to visit for Rosh Hashanah this year.

Visiting Canada and Tourist Visas    

Depending on where you are from, you may need a tourist visa to Canada in order to join your family for the holidays. It is therefore important to check first before you make any travel plans. The Canadian Embassies usually are made aware of the dates of religious holidays and are therefore prepared for an influx of applications.

In order to be approved for a visitor visa to Canada you have to show that your ties to your home country are strong; that your stay in Canada will be temporary and that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay. Various Canadian Embassies process cases at different speeds so it is best to plan ahead before submitting your application so there is no surprises.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
