Canadians to restart processing visa applications through Georgetown.
Capitol News understands that the infrastructure is in place for what is being called “The Visa Application Centre is Georgetown, Guyana,” to be opened soon. The Canadian Embassy has been indicating on its immigration and visa website that updates will be provided when available.
The Canadians have contracted another firm to handle the number of applications that come in and that firm is using a Kingston, Georgetown location to process the applications.
However, until the Centre becomes fully operational, temporary resident or permanent resident travel document applications will be processed through the Visa Application Centre in Port of Spain, Trinidad. The visa application centre (VAC) in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago is open and ready to accept those applications.
The Canadians had stopped several years ago, the processing of visas in Guyana. Guyanese had to visit Trinidad and Tobago to obtain their visas.
