If you are a Greek citizen and plan to visit Canada, be sure to consult the Canadian Embassy or Consulate in your home country for more specific information about required documentation. Generally speaking, however, you should expect to provide Evidence of Income (such as a bank statement), Proof of Address (like a utility bill), Proof of Identity (like a driver’s license or passport), and Proof of Citizenship (like a birth certificate). Additionally, many travellers will require a Health Insurance Policy that covers emergency medical evacuation coverage.
How do you get a Canadian Visa?
To apply for a Canadian visa, Greek citizens must meet the requirements set by the Canadian government. These requirements vary depending on your nationality and whether you are applying as a tourist, business person, student or family member.
To apply for a tourist visa, you will need to provide proof of your travel plans and sufficient funds to cover your stay in Canada. Business visas require an invitation letter from a Canadian business or organization that you plan to work for, as well as documentation supporting your job qualifications. Student visas require proof of enrollment at a Canadian school or university, and family members of Canadian citizens who are living in Canada need to provide proof of relationship and residency.
If you are not sure whether you meet the requirements for a Canadian visa, consult the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). They can help you determine if you need to apply through the standard channels or if there is an alternate route available. CANADA VISA FOR GREEK CITIZENS
