01:17 pm - Canadian VISA
Anyone have experience with a relative coming to Canada for a visit??  My cousin might be coming next summer for a visit and I'm just wondering how hard or easy it will be for the Canadian embassy over there to issue a VISA to her.  I don't think it should be too hard since she's got her parents (plus aunts, uncles, grandparents) over there so there's no hint of illegal immigration, but I've also heard that the Canadian government's a real bastard when it comes to issuing VISA's.

Anyone have any experience?  I figured if they reject her application I'll just bombard the embassy or our government with emails and phone calls.

[EDIT]: Apparently to apply for a Canadian VISA you need a letter of invitation...so I have to send my cousin a letter inviting her to Canada with the reasons why.  Wtf??  I know Canada's a great country and everything but geez....does our government need to fish for compliments in such a obnoxious and stupid way??

Well, I'm not an expert at it (and well considering I don't come from China, every country is different) but when I travel to the U.S. or Europe, those embassies typically ask simple questions (your purpose for the visit, etc.) and the usual documentation, then you get the approval, but with Canadian immigration, the process has gotten harder so she might encounter difficulties along the way. Hopefully things work out for the bet when she decides to come!-Ciao, James

thats interesting....I heard Singapore is similar too. You have to get a letter of recomendation from someone already living there
