Do Ukrainians need a transit visa to travel through Canada?

Posted by Avisa:   23.10.2020

A transit visa to Canada is granted to a foreign national whose goal it is to reach the country of destination by transit through Canada. A visa regime between Ukraine and Canada is currently in force. Every Ukrainian citizen must open a visa except for the citizens of Ukraine who have a valid USA Green Card.

Below are some things to consider when applying for a transit visa through Canada:

  • The embassy's review of documents can vary from 3 days to 3 weeks. Please consider this time when planning a trip;
  • Check whether the destination country is a visa country for Ukrainians. If so it is necessary to apply for your destination visa, and then for a transit visa through Canada;
  • The list of documents for a transit visa through Canada is simple, however we recommend that you collect a complete package of documents as for the visitor's visa (tourist visa);
  • Your route to your destination country should be clear and there should be a logical explanation as to why transit through Canada is more convenient or less expensive;
  • All documents must be translated into English or French.

You can apply for a transit visa through Canada online. To do this, all documents and applications must be downloaded to a personal account, the profile of which is created on the official website of the Government of Canada. After the documents have been submitted, a confirmation letter about giving your biometric data will appear in your personal account. Biometric data is given at the Visa Centre of Canada.

We are often asked the question “How much does a transit visa to Canada cost?

For citizens of Ukraine a transit visa through Canada is free. The only expenses are for the service of the Visa Application Center (VAC) of Canada as well as the services of our agency.

The list of documents for obtaining a transit visa through Canada are as follows:

  1. A valid passport;
  2. The route of travel to the destination country;
  3. Valid visa to the country of destination (if it is a visa required country);
  4. Digital photography;
  5. Completed online application;
  6. Financial documents;
  7. Documents confirming the link to the country of residence.

Your transit visa through Canada will be valid for 48 hours at a maximum. If you need to stay more time in Canada, you must open a visitor visa (a tourist visa).

Important! Canada’s borders are closed at the time of writing of this article, which means that a foreign national cannot visit Canada for tourism purposes, however you can transit through Canada.
