Customs and Immigration

All our partner ports will be happy to greet your guests and welcome them on board. Please remember, however, that visitors will have to go through Canadian Customs upon arriving at their first Port. Here are a few of the most important things to note.

Guests must have a valid passport if they are visiting Canada from any country, including the United States.

Visitors coming from certain countries will require a visitor visa. It must be obtained at a visa office outside Canada. To know if someone requires a visa to enter Canada, contact the nearest Canadian Diplomatic Mission. For additional information, click here.

Traveling with Children

Guests should carry identification, similar to the above mentioned, for children of all ages. If someone is traveling with a child that is not legally their own, they will need a letter of permission from the child's parent or legal guardian. If they are sharing custody of the child, it is best to have copies of legal documents regarding custody rights.

Basic Guidelines

We hope visitors have a truly wonderful vacation in our country. As they enter, an immigration officer will need to be satisfied that:

  • Visitors intend to return to their home country and will not try to stay in Canada;
  • They are in good health (some visitors may be asked to undergo a medical examination at their own expense);
  • They do not have a criminal record or are a security risk;
  • They have sufficient funds to cover travel costs and support themselves in Canada.

If any of these criteria are not met, a person may be denied admission to Canada.
