The application for a visa for Canada requires various preparations and system entries. We have created an application form for you that will make the process and access to the information you need much easier.


IMPORTANT: Each applicant must personally visit a Visa Application Center and submit their biometric data.


Please read the following steps carefully.


Step 1: Fill out our form and we will send you an overview list with all documents adapted to your trip.

Step 2: You send us the required documents by e-mail so that we can continue processing them.

Step 3: After submission you will be asked to submit your biometric data in a VAC (Visa Application Center). Unfortunately, there is no VAC in Switzerland, the nearest VAC is in: France (Lyon + Paris) / Germany (Berlin + Düsseldorf) / Austria (Vienna) / Italy (Rome). After you have submitted them, it can take up to 15 - 25 working days for the government to make a decision on your application.

Step 4: As soon as we receive confirmation from the Government, we will need your original passport to send it to Paris by courier for the visa issue. (The courier costs will be advanced by us and charged to you).  The exhibition may take another 5 - 15 working days.
