NeurIPS 2019 Visa Information


Please submit your visa application as soon as possible.  There are the three forms for your reference;  the TRV application, Instruction Guide, and the checklist. This is the link to the online process:  XXXX. Below is some of the assessment criteria for your application.

Approval of a temporary resident visa application cannot be guaranteed as each application is considered on its own merit. Visa officers look at many factors in assessing whether an applicant is a genuine temporary resident including the following:

  •  the person’s ties to the home country;
  •  the purpose of the visit;
  •  the person’s family and economic situation;
  •  the overall economic and political stability of the home country; and
  •  invitations from Canadian hosts.

Visitors to Canada must satisfy the immigration officer that:

  •  they are in good health and do not pose a health risk;
  •  they don’t have a criminal record;
  •  they don’t pose a threat to Canada’s security;
  •  they have not previously violated immigration legislation;
  •  they have a valid passport or travel document;
  •  they have enough money to support themselves while in Canada
  •  they have sufficient ties to their home country to indicate they will leave Canada when their visa expires; and
  •  they are not inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

Please note:

Fill out the application form completely and include all the documents required.  The Code for NIPS is:  XXX to use on page 3. 

There are always compelling reasons why some individuals are not allowed to enter Canada. Due to Privacy Legislation we are unable to discuss the details of any refused cases.

Visa applications are considered on a case-by-case basis based on the information presented by the applicant. The onus is on the applicant to show that they meet the requirements for a temporary resident visa. Presentation of all the required documentation does not guarantee that a visa will be issued.

Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, only visa officers are authorized to decide on temporary resident visa applications. The visa officer is an independent decision maker whose determination must be in accordance with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations. Members of Parliament and other Canadian government officials do not have the authority to make decisions on temporary resident visa applications or to give directions to visa officers with respect to individual decisions.

If an applicant whose visa was refused has new information that was not included with that person’s visa application or circumstances have changed since the refusal, a new application can be submitted. If, however, there is no change in the applicant’s situation, it is unlikely that a new application will result in the issuance of a visa. Applicants should take into consideration the processing time in their country of residence before submitting a new application. We recommend that the client take a close look at the refusal letter (and the reasons for the refusal) received from the visa office and determine what additional documentation they should include with her application if they decides to submit another visa application.
