Visiting Canada

Visas to Canada

All participants must have a valid passport and/or an appropriate travel document to enter Canada. Some participants may also require a visa. Visas are the responsibility of individual delegates, and must be obtained before coming to Canada. If you are travelling through the USA, you may also require an American visa. Please verify with your travel agent. For complete information on entry into Canada and visa requirements – including a list of countries requiring a visa – please visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.

If you require a visa, it is strongly recommended that you apply at least three months in advance to ensure you receive your visa in time for travel. To obtain a visa application form, visit the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate or get the application form online from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Please note that the IAML/AIBM 2012 Conference organizers and registration secretariat do not have the authority to act on behalf of individuals in obtaining visas.

Invitation Letters

A letter of invitation is available to all registered and paid delegates who require a visa to enter Canada. If you require such a letter, please contact the IAML/AIBM 2012 Registration Secretariat – JPdL International by email at IAML2012Montreal @

Information for American Citizens
