Canadian visa deadline Saturday

Basseterre, St. Kitts, Friday 23rd August, 2019, ( – Foreign Affairs officials in St. Kitts and Nevis are reminding their citizens that they have until this Saturday, 24th August, to apply online for their Canadian visa.

They explain that a Canadian team is expected to be in the Federation, 30th – 31st August to conduct the biometric exercise at the Marriott Hotel, and are looking forward to servicing as many nationals and residents as possible.

In particular, citizens anticipating travel to Canada, including for study, business, tourism, or family events, are urged to capitalize on this opportunity and submit their fully completed visa applications before the deadline, said the statement.

They say that “Submitting visa applications by the deadline will provide the opportunity for citizens to have their biometric processing done right here in the Federation instead of having to travel abroad.”

It is also reminded that biometric processing will ONLY be available to those who have already applied either online or by mail for a visa, work or study permit or for permanent residence.

Once applications have been completed and submitted, applicants will receive a Biometric Invitation Letter informing them of the time and location of their appointment, said the release.
