Canadian Visa Application Centre in Georgetown to provide administrative support to applicants
The Government of Canada just last week announced that it has opened a new Visa Application Centre (VAC) here in Georgetown as a way to make the process of applying for a visa to enter Canada easier and more convenient.
In a Press Statement the Canadian High Commission said that the Citizenship and Immigration Canada is expanding its Visa Application Centre network around the world.
The Guyana location is expected to provide vulnerable administrative support to applicants before, during and after their temporary resident application is assessed by a Citizenship and Immigration Canada officer.
According to the release, the Visa Application Centre service agents are available by phone, email or in person to answer questions and to make sure that applications are complete. The Centre hopes with the assistance, it will avoid unnecessary delays or refusals due to incomplete applications.
The location will also offer other services, including photocopying, application photographs and self-service computer terminals for those wishing to take advantage of the new online applications.
Persons are being cautioned to use only the new Georgetown Visa Application Centre located at 107 Duke Street, Georgetown.
The Canadians had stopped several years ago, the processing of visas in Guyana. Guyanese had to travel to Trinidad and Tobago to obtain their visas.
