Visa Exemption for Serbia

This petition had 738 supporters

We are respectfully requesting your support in facilitating the process for Serbian citizens to obtain a visitor visa to Canada and making the process more affordable for them.

Canadians of Serbian descent are asking our Government to simplify visa conditions or even offer a visa-free regime to Serbian citizens wanting to visit their relatives in Canada. At the present time, the process for a Serbian citizen to obtain a visitor visa to Canada is costly and complicated.In summary, the costs per person for a Canadian visitor's visa for Serbian citizens are:

Visa processing:                             $85.00 to $100.00

Assistance with filling the forms:    $17.55

Passport delivery to Vienna:           $76.55

Copy and print costs per page        $  0.43

Total basic costs                              $179.53 

Additional costs (insurance; required documents issue and translation fees):$300.00 It is estimated that one needs at least $500 per person  just to have the visitor visa form filled and required documents properly certified and attached. Canadians of Serbian descent believe that this is an extremely costly, complicated and time-consuming procedure. 

Canadians of Serbian descent believe that a visa-free entry regime should apply to Serbian citizens with a valid bio-metric passport visiting their relatives in Canada, as is the case with the visa-free entry requirements for citizens of Croatia, Slovenia and a number of other countries, most recently Ukraine.

Thank you for your support.
