The Chilean Embassy in Ottawa, Canada offers two visa options for their citizens – the tourist visa, and the multiple-entry business visa. In order to understand more about these visas, we talked with Consul General of Chile in Ottawa, Jorge Carrión.
Canada Visa for Tourists
If you’re planning a trip to Canada and want to explore the country from the ground up, consider applying for a CANADA VISA FOR TOURISTS. Both Canada and Chile offer similar types of visas that allow visitors to stay in the country for a specific amount of time and see as much of the country as they’d like.
Both countries require applicants to provide proof of a valid passport and sufficient funds to cover their stay. You’ll also need to provide evidence that you have enough money to support yourself while in Canada (for example, proof of an employment contract or rental agreement).
Once you’ve submitted all of the required paperwork, you’ll be contacted by either the Canadian or Chilean embassy responsible for your region. After verifying your information and issuing your visa, you’ll be free to commence your trip! While you’re in the country, don’t forget to visit Vancouver’s Gastown district. This area is a veritable treasure trove of unique and interesting shops, boutiques and eateries. Wander through the area on a Saturday morning or afternoon for a multi-sensory experience as dozens of local merchants offer unique items for sale. You don’t need to be shopping for yourself! There are plenty of stores in Gastown that sell souvenirs, so several members of your group may want to purchase something to remember their trip by.
