Proof of funds no longer needed for some Canadian visa applicants
Trinbagonians who have travelled to Canada within the past 10 years or who already have a US visa will no longer need to show proof of funds when applying for a Canadian visa.
The Canadian High Commission to Trinidad and Tobago said in an update issued Wednesday that Trinidad and Tobago citizens seeking a Visitor Visa, who have either travelled to Canada within the past 10 years or who have a valid US visa, do not need to provide evidence showing proof of funds for their visit.
The new measure is part of the CAN+ facilitation program and applies only to Temporary Resident Visa applications (visitor visa).
Applicants will need to provide proof, either by showing their Canadian entry stamp in their passports or by showing a valid US visa.
However, the exemption does not apply to Study or Work Permit applications, to Transit Visas, nor to Super Visa (parents and grandparents) applications.
