Canada visa centre opens in Dubai

A Canada Visa Application Centre (CVAC) has opened in Dubai’s Wafi Mall, the second in the UAE after the one in Abu Dhabi.

The centre will be operated by VFS Global as part of a contract awarded by the Canadian government.

The CVAC will accept applications in all temporary resident categories (visitor visas, study and work permits) and travel document applications from Canadian permanent residents in the UAE.

It will also provide administrative support services such as collection of visa applications and return of passports. It can also assist in scheduling interviews on behalf of the Canadian visa office…
