The Government of Canada, as specified in Article 28 of the Headquarters Agreement signed with ICAO, shall  issue, on request, diplomatic or official visas to Representatives of ICAO Member States, including all delegates, alternates and advisers coming to Canada to participate in ICAO meetings.
 
By means of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations made under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and in accordance with paragraph 3.19 of Annex 9 — Facilitation to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, Canada has already dispensed with the requirement of entrance visas for temporary visitors of a considerable number of States. However, those delegates for whom visas continue to be required for entry into Canada are invited to take steps to obtain these visas in good time (at least four weeks prior to departure) from the nearest Canadian authorities. Please note that it is not possible to obtain entry visas upon arrival in Canada.
 
In order to facilitate entry formalities upon arrival in Canada, it is suggested that participants carry with them a copy of the document notifying that they are representatives at the ICAO Assembly, and that they identify themselves as such to the Canadian Immigration authorities.
 
If you require a Canadian Entry Visa to attend the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly, please refer to the following document for information and guidance.
