Canada Visa Application From Germany: Full Guide

Applying for a Canadian visa is not as difficult as it might seem.

However, you should be attentive in the process and do your best to submit a high quality application.

Let us guide you through all necessary aspects that German residents should know about a Canadian visa.

First of all, you probably want to know…

Do Germans need a visa to go to Canada?

Depends on the purpose of your visit to Canada, how long you are planning to stay and what you are planning to do. 

There are different visa and permit types – our immigration experts will evaluate your case and suggest you the most suitable visa type for you.

How long does it take to process visa applications?

The processing times greatly depend on the type of visa or immigration program you are applying for.

For example, getting an eTA for travelling to Canada is very fast. 

You can complete an electronic application in less than an hour and get your eTA in a few business days.

With work visas and permanent residency, it’s a much longer process. 

In some cases, express processing can get you a work visa in a few weeks (in case your profession is urgently demanded and you have a job offer from a Canadian employer).

What are the common application mistakes and how to avoid them?

While the application process is pretty straightforward, there are few mistakes that many applicants make. 

They can destroy your application and, as a result, you will have to redo it all over again.

Please see the list below and make sure to avoid these TOP 3 mistakes:

Even an excellent quality application, submitted for a wrong visa program, will not get you any positive results.

Before starting the application process, make sure you are well aware about the specifics of your visa program and ensure that it’s the most suitable visa type for you.

Such little detail as, for example, the expiration date of your passport, can cause an irreversible damage to your application.

Even if the rest of your application is correct and shows you as a strong candidate, one invalid document will stop it from getting through the selection process.

Make sure that ALL of your documents are up-to-date, high quality and submitted in the right format. 

Missing documents could also be a reason for rejection. 

When you submit the file to the Canadian government, make sure you provide ALL necessary documents and don’t leave anything blank. 

Your inability to complete the application is not a good sign for the Canadian government.


The best way to avoid these and other mistakes is to hire a professional immigration consultant to help you with the application process. 

Besides guiding you in the application process, he/she will ensure the quality of your application, immediately spot any incorrect documents and give you tips on how to improve them.
