November 27 (SeeNews) - Canada will scrap visas for all Bulgarian citizens as of December 1, the ministry of foreign affairs said on Monday.
Canada will scrap visa requirements for all Bulgarian citizens, who are planning to stay in Canada for up to six months for the purpose of tourism, business or family visits, the ministry said in a statement.
Bulgarians travelling by plane to Canada will have to obtain prior approval through the Canada's Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). The authorization is granted for five years. Those who already own a valid visa for Canada do not need to apply for approval.
Bulgarian citizens entering Canada through the land or sea borders of the country do not need prior approval.
In October 2016, Bulgarian Prime minister Boyko Borissov said that Canada has agreed to scrap visas for all Bulgarian citizens by December 2017 in exchange for Bulgaria's approval of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada.
