In an effort to strengthen cultural ties and promote tourism, Canada has announced an exciting update to its immigration policies. As of June 6, 2023, several Latin American countries will enjoy visa waiver to enter Canada. This measure is great news for travelers from the region, as it will simplify procedures and facilitate access to this beautiful North American country. However, it is important to take into account the necessary requirements to enjoy this exemption and make the most of it.

The new visa-exempt countries:
In Americanos Magazine we tell you that the list of Latin American countries that can now enter Canada without a visa has been significantly expanded. Among the nations benefiting from this new measure are:

  • Argentina
  • Costa Rica
  • Panama
  • Uruguay.

Although the visa waiver is excellent news, citizens of these countries (among others non-Latin American) should keep in mind that certain requirements must be met:

  1. They have a valid U.S. nonimmigrant visa. UU; or
  2. Have had a Canadian visa in the last 10 years.

Fulfilling one of these two requirements, they will be able to apply for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) instead of a visa to travel to Canada as long as their arrival is by air.

The ETA is an electronic travel authorization that allows citizens of certain countries to enter Canada without obtaining a traditional visa.

This system streamlines the travel process and promotes the safety and facilitation of international travel to Canada.

Remember that the ETA is only for tourism in Canada.

The visa waiver for new Latin American countries wishing to visit Canada from June 6, 2023 is a great step towards greater openness and cooperation between the nations.

This change in immigration policies will benefit travelers by removing bureaucratic barriers and promoting tourism, business and cultural exchanges.
However, it is essential that travelers meet the above-mentioned requirements to enjoy this new measure without problems. With good planning and proper documentation, Latin Americans will be able to make the most of this incredible opportunity to discover the beauty and diversity of Canada.

Get ready to live an unforgettable experience in Canadian lands without a visa!
