    Step-by-Step Guide to Applying for a Canadian Visa from Bangladesh

    In order to get a Canadian visa for Bangladesh, you need to follow a step-by-step guide.

    Choose the Visa Type

    You need to identify the sort of visa you require and confirm your eligibility to apply for it. Additionally, you must be aware of the documents you must submit, the potential processing time, and the fees you will be required to pay. Ensure you adhere to the regulations established for your visa category.

    Start Your Application

    The visa application form can be downloaded, filled out, printed, and brought to the visa application centre for submission. Additionally, you can submit your application to Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) online.

    Fill out the online application form. The entire form must be printed with a laser printer on white non glossy paper, bond quality, along with the barcoded sheets. Please make sure the two copies of the 2D barcode are printed clearly and on quality paper. Forms written by hand will be rejected.

    You must provide supporting documentation in accordance with the IRCC document checklist that applies to your visa category. You will need to fill out the waiver form, sign it, and include it with your application form if you cannot supply all the supporting papers listed on the official IRCC document checklist.

    You must read the privacy policy, complete the consent form, and attach it to your application. Ensure your consent form is included in your application because it will be sent back to you if you don’t include it.

    Book an Appointment

    After applying for your visa, you must book an appointment at a visa application centre to get your biometric information (fingerprints and photo). You will receive an email with the appointment letter once you’ve scheduled your appointment, along with an appointment confirmation.

    If you are a member of a family or group, you must schedule individual appointments for each person. You may not need to book an appointment with your local CVAC if you’re not required to submit your biometric information.

    Just visit your local CVAC at your leisure with your photographs, passport, the Government of Canada Fee, completed forms, and other supporting documents included in the document list of IRCC.

    Pay Your Fees

    After completing your application, you’ll need to pay the application fee of your visa. However, you may pay at the time of your appointment if you want to download the form to print and take along with you to the visa application centre.

    Follow the instructions on the IRCC website to pay the biometric fee (if necessary) and the Government of Canada fee.

    Attend Your Appointment

    You must submit your complete visa application form in person to the Visa Application Centre if you have not already done so online. Follow up on what occurs at the centre for visa applications.

    You may stop by the Visa Application Centre during business hours if you are not required to submit biometrics. Your application and biometrics (if necessary) will be taken once you arrive at the Canada Visa Application Centre.

    Get a receipt after paying the relevant Visa Application Centre service fees. Your unique tracking number, which will enable you to follow the progress of your application online, is contained in that receipt.

    Track Your Application

    When a decision has been sent back to the Visa Application Centre, you will receive an email update. You may also be able to receive updates through SMS to your phone if you have trouble accessing your email or would like more information on tracking your visa.

    Verify if this service is offered at the visa application centre you plan to visit.

    Receive Your Passport

    After a decision has been made regarding your application, you may then have your documents returned to you by courier and pay an additional fee or you get your documents from the visa application centre by yourself. Verify if this service is offered at the visa application centre you plan to visit.

    You must present the following in order to pick up the decision envelope in person at the Visa Application Centre:

    • A copy of the passport page with the biographic stamp.
    • A government identification form.
    • The real Services Receipt for Visa Application Centre issued by the Visa Application Centre.

    Additionally, you are allowed to assign someone to pick up your decision envelope from the Visa Application Centre. Your delegate needs to give the following:

    • A signed consent form for Visa Application Centre services, bearing the name and relationship of the delegate to the applicant.
    • A copy of the applicant’s passport’s biographic page that has been stamped.
    • The original Services Receipt for Visa Application Centre issued by the Visa Application Centre
    • The delegate’s government identity form.

    It is your obligation to verify the specifics of the issued visa to make sure it is valid for the intended purpose of the trip, the required number of entries, and the suggested date of entry into Canada. You must verify the facts in your decision envelope immediately after receiving it. The Visa Office alone determines the validity duration and the number of entries, which may be different from what was requested when you applied.

    This is why it’s really important that you contact our immigration lawyers at Total Law to help you with expert guidance to ensure you don’t make any mistakes in your application process. Just call us on +44 (0)333 305 9375 or contact us online for immediate assistance.

        Processing Time for Canadian Visa Applications from Bangladesh

        All Canadian visa applications from Bangladesh have an estimated completion time of 25 to 30 days. However, the time it takes to process a visa application relies solely on how long the visa office needs to consider each one individually, so it may take longer than expected.

        Canada Visa Fees and Payment Methods

        You’ll need to pay a certain fee in order to get a Canadian visa from Bangladesh. You’ll have to pay USD139.

        Canadian Visa Interview Process

        You’ll have to go through two screening interviews when you get into Canada. It will be over quickly once all your documents are available and checked.

        First Interview

        The first interview is where the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) office will ask you some personal questions to:

        • Ask about your health.
        • See your travel documents and visa.
        • Ensure that you and any of your family members traveling with you have the correct travel documents.
        • Ask you questions like those on the immigrant application form, which seeks to know:
          • How much money you have for your financial support.
          • Who you’re traveling with.
          • Whether you have been convicted of a serious crime in Bangladesh.
          • If you are healthy.
          • The duration of your stay in Canada.
          • If you have been to Canada before and if you were required to leave.

        Once you’re done with this interview, another CBSA officer will inspect the items you have with you. This could even occur twice, depending on the port of entry.

        Second Interview

        You must declare what you’re bringing into Canada during the second interview.

        The officer will request your declaration card and you must inform the officer that you are in Canada to apply for immigration. The officer may now direct you to a different location for the customs process.

        The list of items you are carrying with you and the list of items that will arrive later must be provided to the officer. You will go over both lists with the officer, who might have some questions regarding some items. Your luggage can also be inspected by the officer.

          Tips for a Successful Canadian Visa Interview

          You need to prepare for your visa interview. Note the following tips for your Canadian visa interview:

          • When answering your interview questions, don’t give false answers. The responses you provide must be accurate, as it is criminal to make a false statement. If you make a false statement, it could result in denying you the right to remain in Canada.
          • The procedure will move fast if you are well-prepared and don’t have any prohibited items with you. The officer will sign your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (CPR) and approve your entry into Canada as a permanent resident if there are no problems.
          • Make a list of all the required paperwork that is listed on the government of Canada’s official website before you apply for a visa.
          • Fill out the application form completely, accurately, and without making any mistakes.
          • In order to increase your chances of having your visa approved, your statement of intent has to be brief and well-written.
          • A copy of the admission letter from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) should be sent. As soon as you receive this letter, you must begin the visa application procedure.
          • You must bring your bank statements and confirm that you have a sufficient balance.
          • Mention all of your previous international travel.
          • Take the required medical exams.
