Emigrate to Canada: Visa and Residence Permit

Canada: The country promises freedom, quality of life and less bureaucracy than in Germany. But anyone who wants to emigrate to Canada needs a permanent residence permit. Read here what requirements you have to meet for the visa.

Do you meet the requirements to immigrate to Canada?

As liberal as the country is, immigrants can only get a visa under certain conditions.

If criminal proceedings are still pending against you in Germany, you cannot even enter the country temporarily.

You can only stay in Canada for six months without a visa. However, you can use this option to travel the country in advance and decide whether you really want to emigrate to Canada.
