Canada denied a visa to every fourth Ukrainian in 2019
In the first months of 2019, Canada refused visas to 23% of applicants from Ukraine. This was stated by the Ambassador of Canada in Ukraine Roman Waschuk. The ambassador said that there are three main reasons because of which Ukrainians have problems with obtaining a visa: financial availability to travel through the documents submitted, cases of illegal immigration to Canada by the applicant’s relatives, visa refusals or other problems in other countries with which Canada has agreements to exchange information.
