Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On November 22, 2014, the Canadian government announced the removal of the requirement for Chilean nationals to obtain temporary resident visas to travel to Canada. As such, Chileans may now travel on valid passports to Canada for business and pleasure travel without the requirement of first applying for a travel visa to enter Canada. Coupled with the Canada –Chile Free Trade Agreement and the fact that Chilean nationals do not require medicals, Chilean nationals will be eligible to apply for work permits at the port of entry, including Chilean Professionals as outlined in the Canada-Chile FTA: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/tools/temp/work/international/chile.asp

This announcement is a welcomed development for employers seeking skilled workers to Canada and promoting greater global mobility.
