The deadline to submit a written refund request due to visa refusal is September 15, 2017. Official paperwork must be sent by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Participants requesting a visa invitation letter to be sent to them by priority mail will be charged $100 per delivery address.

Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.
For more information, please read here.

If you are a dual Canadian citizen used to travelling to or transiting through Canada by air with a non-Canadian passport, you can no longer do so. You now need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight.

We encourage participants from countries that require a visa to apply as early as possible. Visa processing times vary by country. Please consult this website.
