Canada Entry Requirements

Visa Requirements for Canadian Citizens

Finally, let's take a look at the most interesting part about travel and visa requirements for Belgian citizens, specifically traveling without a visa.
Dozens of countries allow Belgians to travel with only a valid passport or even valid identification documents in hand.
Around 150 countries and territories allow Belgians to travel there without applying for any type of travel permit.
This means that when you arrive at any of the destinations listed above, you will not have to apply for a visa before your planned trip or upon arrival.
To enter a selected country without a visa, first check whether you need a valid passport or ID card.
Some destinations may also require you to provide some supporting documentation, such as a return ticket or proof of having enough funds for the trip or hotel reservation.
However, most only need to present one document (passport or ID card) upon arrival.
Traveling without a visa is not only easy but also has many opportunities.
All Belgian citizens can travel for touristic, professional or transit-related reasons to any country without a visa.
Enjoy a relaxing vacation, meet friends and loved ones, attend a business meeting, a conference or simply make a stopover on your way to another country!

All Canadian citizens traveling with a valid passport can get their Visas on Arrival in a few steps:

  1. As soon as your plane lands or as soon as you cross the border some other way, go to the nearest border entry point.
  2. Ask for a visa application form on arrival and fill in the correct information.
  3. Pay the visa fee (if required) and wait for your application to be processed.
Visas received on arrival allow varying lengths of stay depending on the country selected. This may take days or months. Check how long you can stay in your chosen destination before arriving there. In addition, this type of visa can be issued as a single or multiple entry permit. Each country has its own visa requirements and characteristics.

Embassy Visa

Embassy visas are obtained at the embassy or consulate of the selected destination.

Most of these are lesser-known places, such as Wallis and Futuna, Svalbard and Jan Mayen, Tokelau, Eritrea, Artsakh or Mayotte.
This type of visa must be obtained in person at the embassy and often requires the applicant to prepare multiple documents to confirm the purpose of their stay.
All Canadian citizens wishing to travel to any destination that requires an embassy visa should prepare for the application process several weeks before their expected departure date.
First, examine the current operational requirements that need to be met and determine what documents you need to collect.
After that, fill out the visa application form, attach the collected documents and submit the application with complete documents to the embassy.
Sometimes foreign governments require applicants to undergo a visa interview or pay a visa application fee.
The final step is simply waiting for approval, which in the case of visa issuance at the embassy can take several weeks.
Embassy visas can also serve as long-term travel permits, often used for more extended stays related to work, study or accompanying your partner abroad .

Visa-free countries

Canadian passport holders can visit more than a hundred places without a visa.
Many destinations have introduced visa waivers for Canadians, making travel and border crossings much more accessible.
Remember that despite being visa-free, Canadian citizens still need a valid passport or ID to travel without any hassle.
So what is it like to travel from Canada to visa-free countries?
Well, the process couldn't be simpler!
In this case, Canadian citizens do not need a visa.
So there is no need to go to the embassy or consulate.
The only requirement is a valid travel document in the form of a passport or unexpired Canadian ID.
So, prepare your travel documents and book a ticket to one of these visa-free destinations!
Additionally, traveling without a visa often allows Canadian citizens to engage in recreational, transit or even professional activities.
As in the case of short-stay visas on arrival, e-visas or travel permits issued by the embassy; Visa-free destinations allow Canadians to do a variety of things.
Canadian passport holders may not be eligible to work or study for longer periods of time if traveling only on a valid passport.
However, visa exemption extends Canadians' freedom of movement even further!
