We put new measures in place to help people affected by the ongoing situation in Ukraine. We’re
- urgently processing new and replacement passports and travel documents for citizens and permanent residents of Canada in Ukraine, so they can return to Canada at any time
- This includes immediate family members who will come with them.
- prioritizing applications from people who currently live in Ukraine for
- permanent residence
- proof of citizenship
- temporary residence
- citizenship grant for adoption
- adding new ways to make sure people who contact us get answers as fast as possible
- extending a temporary public policy that lets some visitors in Canada, including Ukrainians, apply for a work permit from within Canada
- This means people who get a job offer can stay in Canada and start working while their work permit application is processed.
You can now enter Canada if you’re an unvaccinated Ukrainian national with a
- temporary resident visa (visitor visa)
- temporary resident permit or
- written notice your application for permanent residence in Canada was approved
This also applies if the vaccine you had isn’t currently recognized by Canada (WHO-approved).
When you arrive in Canada, you’ll still need to meet all other public health requirements, such as quarantine and testing (including a COVID test before boarding your flight).
We’ll add more information to this page as the situation changes.
