Canada has announced a new visa regime that will allow Indians 10 years multiple entry visa to the country. The announcement was made by Canadian Minister of International Trade Edward Fast at a meeting with delegates of the Indian government and business community at the two-day mini Parvasi Bharatiya Divas Canada 2011 convention that began in Toronto on Friday.
“After an initial visa screening, applicants can get a visa that allow them to visit Canada often as long as their passports are valid up to ten years,” Fast said.
S M Gavai, the High Commissioner of India, said the new 10-year multiple entry visa would help to meet the longstanding demand of Indians businesses and others who would like to come Canada frequently.
“Ties between India and Canada have never been so close, so extensive and potentially so exciting as they are today. The Indo-Canadian community has played a major role in enriching this relationship, in building bridges between the two countries,” Gavai added.
