Canada Offers 10-Year Multiple Entry Visa for Indians

Canada has announced that 10-year multiple entry visas are now available for Indian nationals. This is part of an initiative to boost trade relations between the two countries and to increase Indian tourist arrivals into Canada.

At present, a six-month visa is being issued to Indian tourists. To obtain 10-year multiple entry visas, Indian nationals have to ensure that their passports are valid up to ten years. Canada Tourism Commission (CTC) India Director Shilpa Sethi was quoted in TTG Asia as having said that many people think that obtaining a Canadian visa is difficult so they don’t even consider Canada for travel. Sethi is confident that the new visa regime will change this perception and will definitely boost tourism to Canada.

In 2010, 127,000 Indians visited Canada. CTC aims to increase the Indian visitor arrivals by 20% this year.
