The Ecocity World Summit 2011 looks forward to welcoming you to Canada.
Depending on where you live, and the reason for your visit to Canada, you will need to meet certain entry requirements. In some cases, if you plan to stay in Canada for a certain period of time, you will need a temporary resident visa.
Even if you are a citizen of a country where you do not require a visa to visit Canada, you must still have a valid passport. Some citizens from visa exempt countries have more requirements such as having a machine readable passport or an e-passport to travel to Canada.
Please consult the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website to determine whether you need a visa to enter Canada as a visitor. You should have all relevant documents on hand when you arrive. These documents include, but are not limited to:
- a valid passport or travel document that will be valid until the end of your stay;
- if applicable, a temporary resident visa;
- a letter of invitation to Ecocity World Summit 2011;
- a copy of any documents to support your visit;
- 24-hour contact details of an Ecocity World Summit 2011 representative; and
- proof that you have enough money for both your stay in Canada and your return home.
For accurate information on visa requirements for your country, consult the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.
Invitations will be sent by the Ecocity World Summit 2011 Secretariat, on request, to participants from countries who require a visa to enter Canada. All requests must be on official letterhead of the organization to which the participant belongs, and are to be sent to email@example.com.
Please note that invitation letters will only be sent to participants whose registration fees are paid in full. Should the participant’s visa application be rejected, registration fees will be reimbursed upon presentation of the rejection letter to the Secretariat.
Information regarding passports and visas is subject to change without advance notice. We urge you to consult the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website regularly, or check with your travel agent, to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information.
