AFRICA: New Visa applications for Canada – Press Release
NOTES: This press release is for Seychelles but I get a feeling that it applies to all of Africa. Many people in East Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania) need to know that the Canadian High Commisssion (only one) which issues Visas is based in Tanzania.
New Visa Procedure for Canada
VICTORIA, Seychelles, July 25, 2018/ — The Department of Foreign Affairs wishes to inform the general public of Seychelles that, effective from July 31, 2018, citizens between the ages of 14 and 79 years inclusively who apply to temporarily or permanently enter Canada will need to provide their biometric data/finger print at the nearest Visa Application Centre overseas.
