The government is rolling out a new system for applying for a visa to enter the country.
The new program is called the Visa Search and Entry System (VSS) and it is available to anyone who has a valid visitor or employee visa from any country listed on the National Immigrant Visa Register (NIIR).
According to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIC), the new visa application system will be implemented from September, and will require only a $75 fee for a basic Visa Search.”VSS will allow applicants to apply for a Visitor Visa for up to 12 months without having to pay the NIIR entry fee, which is currently $100,” said a statement from the Department.
The new program will be offered by the Department’s Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIIS) branch.
The visa search and entry system is also being rolled out to other provinces and territories.
According to a statement, the new program allows the following visa categories to be applied for:Visitor Visiting or Employment Visa, Visitor Visitor and Temporary Resident Visa, Permanent Resident Visa and a Permanent Resident Card.
The NIIRs list a total of 16 different countries, including the US, Japan, Canada, China, South Korea, India, New Zealand, France, and the UK.
The new visa search system is being rolled in to the system to allow for a more streamlined process.
“The new Visa Search is a pilot project that will be rolled out throughout the month of September and will also be rolled into other provinces, territories, and countries in the coming months,” the CIIS statement read.
According to an official with the CIIC, the visa search is a key tool for attracting people to Canada and getting them to visit and work in Canada.
“The visa is a vital part of Canada’s economy, helping to keep jobs in the country,” said the CIICS spokesperson.
“This is the latest step in the government’s immigration strategy to make it easier for Canadians to get work and stay in the province.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an effort to improve visa eligibility in Canada, as the Canadian Government launched a Visa Search Initiative to streamline the process for entry into the country, and to help people who might not have a valid visa and don’t want to apply.
The initiative is still in its infancy, but the process of completing the application process is already more streamlined.
