The European Union is one big, happy family. But what happens when there’s tension between member countries? Canada has responded to a looming German visa crisis by easing its visa process for citizens of France. And while this move might seem trivial on the surface, it could have far-reaching consequences for the future of travel between these two countries. CANADA VISA FOR FRANCE CITIZENS
Canada’s new visa process
The new Canadian visa process is designed to make it easier for tourists and business travelers to come and visit Canada. The process has been streamlined, and there are now more efficient ways to obtain a visa. Some of the changes in the new process include:
-You can now apply for a visa online.
-You no longer need to visit a Canadian embassy or consulate in person.
-There is now a fast track option for certain types of visas, such as tourism and business visas.
Some people in Germany are concerned about how the new Canadian visa process will affect tourism in Germany. Some German tourists have already reported that they are having trouble getting visas to travel to Canada, and this could have a negative effect on tourism in both countries. However, it’s still too early to tell how the new Canadian visa process will play out overall. CANADA VISA FOR GERMANY CITIZENS
Germany’s response: comment to the statement by Minister for Immigration and Refugees
Germany’s response to Canada easing its visa process is that they will need more of the same. Minister for Immigration and Refugees, Barbara Hendricks, said on Monday that Germany needs a “workable solution” to its asylum seeker crisis, which she believes can only come from international cooperation.
Hendricks’ statement comes in response to Canada announcing it will reduce the processing time for applications for tourist and business visas from six months to three. The move is being made in an effort to increase tourism and improve trade relations with countries like Germany.
Germany has been struggling with how to deal with an influx of asylum seekers from war-torn Syria and other parts of the Middle East. In 2015, over one million people sought asylum in Germany, accounting for about a quarter of all refugees worldwide.
