One might add that the cost of the Electronic travel authorization (eTA) is 7 CA$, payable by credit card. --Gereon K. (talk) 15:44, 3 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]


Hi, I an underage citizen of Uzbekistan with German residence, but during the conference I will already be 18. How do I apply and do I need my parents consent? All the best, Lingveno (talk) 21:08, 12 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I would expect that your age at the time you travel would be the important factor, but I would suggest you contact the Canadian embassy or consular services to get the correct information. If you are in Berlin, the Canadian embassy is - if I recall correctly - on Potsdammer Platz; I'm sure they can give you the details there.  ­– Coren(talk) 03:19, 13 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Unfortunately, the Canadian embassy in Berlin does NOT offer visa application services. The next Visa Application Centre is in Düsseldorf. --MB-one (talk) 12:19, 14 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]


The visa page mentions that I can request for an invitation. Is there a way to request for one now? --Artoria2e5 (talk) 03:21, 4 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Visa application: Main purpose of travel?

The online visa application form asks for category and main purpose of visit. Category is definitely "Visit". The kind of documents we are allowed to upload depdends on the purpose of travel. And purpose of travel does not include anything related to conference. They have 'Visiting friends and families', 'Tourism', 'Other', 'Business'. Both 'Other' and 'Business' require mandatory business registration certificates from the country you belong. 'Tourism' allows uploading less number of documents, that does not even include 'Invitation letter' or anything that we can show that we are attending Wikimania event. 'Visiting friends and families' allows uploading most of the documents we have about the conference. But does conference come under that category? I don't know and could not find much information anywhere. Any help?--Santhosh.thottingal (talk) 03:52, 26 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
