Acquiring a visa can be pretty expensive and stressful. I still have my Philippine passport and citizenship even though I live in Canada, which means I still have to apply for travel visa in some countries despite being a Canadian Resident. So I did my research *types in google: visa free travel for canadian pr card holder, lols” and found these places that are visa-free if you’re Canadian Resident. Yay!
A few notes:
– Your passport needs to be at least 6 months valid. It’s safer like that and to avoid any complications when you get to the country’s port of entry.
– I haven’t been to any of these places. (Boohoo). But if you have any questions regarding anything, we can google it together! =)
– IMPORTANT! Please call country’s embassy to confirm travel requirements before planning and purchasing tickets. (As my list may not be up to date) Continue reading
If you’re currently a Canadian Permanent Resident, you need to apply for a visa in order to enter the US of A.
APPLICATION FORM + PHOTO:
*** There’s a lot of visa categories as per this website. Just keep in mind that you are there for leisure trip, therefore choose the B-2 VISITOR VISA. ***
APPLICATION: 1) Fill out the Online Non-immigrant Visa Application (DS-160) through this website, click here. Select “Location” first and then “Start the Application”. Voila! Start your application now. 2) Print the confirmation page to bring to your interview.
PHOTO*: 1) You need to upload a photo in your application in order to proceed with the form. I didn’t have any .jpg photo with me at the moment, so I used my iPhone and took the picture with a white background. (which went through!) 2) On the day of your interview, you need to bring 2 pieces of 2×2 photo, so make sure you have the proper photo for this. (No iPhone photos please!) 3) For photo requirements, click here.
*More photo info: I went to London Drugs and had mine taken there. I paid around $13 for 2 pieces of photos. (You can also go to Costco or Walmart). If you ever forget to bring one on the day of your interview, there’s a photo booth inside the embassy. Just make sure you arrive there earlier.
