Canada is a beautiful country full of history, incredible nature view and impressive traditions. It is undoubtedly one of the tourist places that everyone wants to visit. Especially for Germans due to a large number of citizens already residing in Canada. They travel a lot to visit their relatives, to maintain business relations and on other occasions, for medical treatments. However, for those Germans who wish to go to Canada for the first time, they need to have an e-visa to enter the country.
What are the requirements for Germans to apply for an eTA?
The requirements for Germans are simple, like German, you must have your valid passport, your identification card, and an active debit or credit card. If you have any health condition or a business permit, it is important to attach those on the form too. Similarly, you must report how much money you have to cover your expenses in the country during your stay. Once the requirements have been collected you just have to fill out the form in eTA Canada and make sure that all the data entered matches your documents; this way you will avoid unwanted delays.
How long does it take to get my e-visa application approved?
After your payment has been confirmed, the approval process only takes approximately 72 hours. Although you should not worry in any way, because after filling out your form, the agents will cordially contact you via email to inform you of the status of your online application, both from the moment they receive all your data and at the time they will send you the good news – “You have been approved”. Besides, the authorization for being electronic is also sent by email.
How long can a German stay in Canada?
The permit itself is valid for 5 years but only allows you to stay in Canada for less than 90 days.
This means that once the 90 days have elapsed, the Germans must return to their country. After a while, Germans can return for 90 more days, since once the eTA Canada is in effect, it is valid for 5 years. In this sense, you must plan that your trip does not exceed the 90-day rule since the authorities are very strict concerning compliance with the law. Verify that both your business plans and your tourist visits are within the framework allowed by the electronic authorization to avoid incurring infractions.
Which places do German choose in Canada?
It’s interesting but the Germans love going to Yukon in northwestern Canada. There you can enjoy the sight of the glaciers, the trails and the highest peak in Canada, Mount Logan. Germans have the advantage that there is a direct flight from Frankfurt to Whitehorse, making Yukon an easily accessible place from Germany. It is also one of the few places in Canada where German is the most spoken unofficial language, so you will find restaurants, hotels, travel services and shops described in German.
Can German work in Canada using their eTA Canada?
Yes, you can do business and ventures in the country using the eTA Canada. It is ideal to meet the country, adapt to the lifestyle, and find job opportunities that are related to your area of expertise. Most Germans, before embarking on their trip, use the different online portals to obtain job opportunities in Canada and travel only to sign the contract agreement, thus taking better advantage of the 90-day permit. Keep in mind that the minimum wage in Canada ranges from 11 to 15 Canadian dollars, so you can measure whether the offer you have meets your requirements.
Although if you are looking to increase your level of experience in a particular area, Canada has an excellent volunteer service where you are allowed with your e-visa to offer your skills and consequently develop professionally in the country. There are options where you can do your volunteer period in prestigious universities of the country, hospital systems, and technological areas. So you can build relationships with colleagues in your profession and prove yourself if Canada is a good place for you.
