DO I REQUIRE A VISA?
Many visitors require a visa that is pre-approved by a Canadian Visa office in their home country before they are able to come to Canada. Our firm helps you to prepare the documentation required and submits your application to the Canadian visa post for processing. We offer efficient services and our applications are based on many years of experience in preparing similar cases.

DO I REQUIRE AN eTA?
An Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is an entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. We can assist in applying for an eTA to ensure your Canadian immigration application is met with success.
MEDICAL EXAMS FOR VISITORS
Certain foreign nationals are required to undergo medical exams before coming to Canada either as a temporary visitor, or to settle permanently.
Generally, you do not require a medical exam if you plan to spend 6 months or less in Canada (unless you intend to work in certain occupations, such as those in the health care industry).
Applicants for Permanent Residency must undergo a medical exam. Those who apply for an occupation in public health and those who apply for the Parent and Grandparent Supervisa must also complete a medical exam. If you plan to stay in Canada for more than six months as a visitor, student, or worker you may need to complete a medical exam.
Doctors who can perform these medical exams are called panel physicians. Immigration Canada provides a list per country of the doctors available to perform these exams, you can find the list by clicking here.
If you are unsure whether you require a medical exam or not, we can assess your case and advise you accordingly to ensure you follow best practices.
When you apply for a visitor visa, study permit, work permit (excluding U.S. nationals), or permanent residence, you will need to submit your biometrics. Biometric information is collected in the form of fingerprints and a photo.
To supply your biometrics, you must pay a biometrics fee when you submit your application, obtain an instruction letter, and go to an official Biometrics Collection Service Point.
Calver and Associates can help you determine whether or not you need to supply biometric information. We can also assist you in locating a Biometrics Collection Service Point near you.
When we handle your application for a Visitor Visa, Work Permit, Study Permit, or Permanent Residence, we ensure that your biometrics fee is paid in a timely manner and advise you on when to have your Biometric information collected. This ensures that your application avoids unnecessary delays and is processed as quickly as possible.
