Canada imposes visas on St Lucia and St Vincent

Beginning on Tuesday, citizens of St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines now require a visa to travel to Canada, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced.

For the first 48 hours, or until 11:59 pm on September 12, citizens of these countries who are in transit to Canada at the time the visa requirement takes effect will be able to receive a temporary resident permit on arrival in Canada, free of charge, if they are not otherwise inadmissible to Canada.

    I just want to mention that the false refugee claimants are too full of themselves. yes we all come here to help ourselves , but they are full of trouble. No matter what country they are from right now as i hear it. they behave like the have more rights the the people with status and are the first ones to call police when they create their problems , all because they have a temporary SIN number.

    What is the big deal people ? We need visa for the US and see how many Caribbean. People who travel to the US. Is the people right to put measures to tighten the security of their country. As someone from St Lucia , Caribben woman, i am a law abiding citizen but I understand that people like me must pay for what the unscrupulous people do so all I have to do is respect the laws and abide by it. It is difficult for us to impose visa on the big countries because we depend heavily on Tourim. I believe we need to come together as one Caribbean, unite and go to war as one force rather than spending so much time tearing each other apart. We must cry when each other are hurting and crying.

    All i want to know is where can you apply for this visa thing

    • September 14, 2012

      @someone:

      If you are from St. Lucia or St. Vincent, the news article said that: “Applicants from St. Lucia and St. Vincent can submit their applications by mail, or in person to the Canadian Visa Office in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago”.

      If you from Dominica, I believe that you have to go through their office in Barbados–unless things have changed and I do not know about it, yet.

OECS Folks cant just sit and allow these politicians to do nonsense then escape. Look now, poor people cant travel as freely as they can based on the selling of passports and the slackness of some governments who in search of money forget dignity and pride! Money worries does make monkey eat pepper! Look now due to money worries, these govenements refused to adhere to the measures of the Canadian government, so now pooooor people, have to fly to Trinidad to get visas, that is if the get it! Wake up People Wake Up! Demand answers. By the way, these politicians and their friends and families, dont have to go through these struggles, remember its about who u know where u know! How many caribean nationals got chinese and other foreign passports? Strange enough, some of them with passports dont even knwo the islands, it is alleged!

      You are a smart one. I reside in Toronto. I endorse what you stated. The islands are not a free for all and whoever so wishes to come in and remain there. Some people take advantage of the friendliness and generosity of the islands governments. Even though tourism is important to the country, the DA government should tighten-up immigration. They should be considering this. In the long run, problems could ensue other than criminal activities in DA.

    I find some people are really abusing their right to be ignorant wii. Why is it Dominicans and St Lucian should be eating each other so? We are all Caribbean people just from differents parts. Is like saying am from Castries in St Lucia or Mahaut in Dominica. We have more Dominicans coming to St Lucia because we are more developed, they come to shop, work, school and we are happy that we can receive our brothers and sisters. I love Dominica it is my second home and when I am in Dominica, no Dominican can’t mess with me cause am Dominican too! I speak just as loud as anyone yes an am a Labour I love Skerrit and I say it openly. Lol that ‘s how much I am bad in the Caribbean. Why y’all think I subscribe to DNO? So stop abusing y’all right to be ignorant and recognize we are all one in this Caribbean especially SLU and Da. Des ban couyon! Lol.

    • September 14, 2012

      @Caribbean Dominican

      You have a point that but point stems out from much further than disharmony among the Islanders. To tell you the truth I didn’t even know that Grenadians–for example– used to pick on Dominicans, until I met a very handsome man from Grenada, six months after I arrived in Toronto.

      It is jsut that he was lucky that I got to like him a whole of a lot, before he started to tell me about that relationship between our Dominicans and his Grenadians.

      Anyway we ended up staying together for 30 years–we have an adult son–we were no longer in the Islands, and in a new country we learn the value of our own people–no matter what Island we are from.

      But if you study this situation you will learn that it s a norm in this world–for example in the Church, where we, the people are supposed to be One in the Spirit–living a Life of peace.

      Is it not a stupid back and forth, with some church denominations claiming to be the True Church–they even go as far as calling the other denomination sinners– as if all of their followers are already transformed to completely know Life in the Spirit?

      There are many other examples–because the people of this world do not know peace and harmony–the way that God, who created us wants us to live.

      @ helen of the West

      I reside in Toronto and I have been upset with this system for years. A few years ago I wrote my MP about it. His response was that ‘Canada is a generous country.’ In discussing the issue with someone, I informed the person, ‘Let them take generosity today.’
      In the past years the Canadian government years were not smart or they just could not be bothered.
      People came to the country in plane and boat loads saying that they are refugees. Those who are employed in especially the Social Welfare office and relevant offices which provide all sorts of assistance for them can tell you about that.
      A few years ago a government employee made headlines in Canada. She quit her job saying that she was fed-up of processing those documents whereby refugees/visitors, the latter who also claim refugee status and sought landed status were receiving more financial benefit than what she was paid. She somewhat exposed the System for what it is. They do get angry and I do not blame them. In fact, many hardworking West Indians and those who are now retired are also angry.
      They have cost the Canadian government/taxpayers an exorbitant sum of money. This is also one of the reasons why today the Federal government is clamping down. This is in addition to gangs, gang-wars, murders and other crimes. Canada and the provinces in general are not as safe as they used to be. The government is trying to clamp down and make it a safer place. I can only hope it is not too late.
      Many who came to this shore have really overdid it and taken advantage of Canada. Some of them are not law-abiding. Today, Canada is paying for it. The government has seen its error, sometimes due to a lax government and lenient Legal System added with defense lawyers who successfully represent every one of them. …And there is more…
      Unfortunately, as always, the honest ones always pay for the dishonest ones. Sadly, it is affecting the islands. I hope someday, be it in my lifetime or not, the tide will turn and situation will be better. I could write a book on my views and others. We are angry and frustrated.
      Canadians whether they are born here or naturalized have been writing the government. People are really angry to see what has occurred and continue to occur in the country/provinces/ cities. It was high time that Canada’s Federal government did something about it. There will be critics as also lawyers who stand to gain from defending those people when they get into trouble with the Law and when others are given deportee papers. These are operating in their own interests and are one-sided.

    News Release – Canadian citizenship not for sale: Minister Kenney provides update of investigations into citizenship fraud

    Montreal, December 9, 2011 — The Government of Canada is now investigating 6,500 people from more than 100 countries for fraudulently attempting to gain citizenship or maintain permanent resident status, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced today.

    ““Canadian citizenship is not for sale,”” said Minister Kenney. ““Canadians are generous people, but have no tolerance or patience for people who don’t play by the rules and who lie or cheat to become a Canadian citizen. The Government will apply the full strength of Canadian law to those who have obtained citizenship fraudulently.””

    In July, Minister Kenney announced that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) was beginning the process to revoke the citizenship of up to 1,800 citizens who obtained it fraudulently; that number has now risen to more than 2,100.

    The Department has also been working on cases of those who are not yet citizens. Nearly 4,400 people with permanent resident status who are known to be implicated in residence fraud have been flagged for additional scrutiny should they attempt to enter Canada or obtain citizenship. The majority of these individuals are outside the country.

    In typical cases, permanent residents will use the services of an unscrupulous immigration consultant to establish evidence of residence in Canada while living abroad most, if not all, of the time. This fraud is perpetrated so that individuals can maintain their permanent residence status and later apply for citizenship. A family of five may pay upwards of $25,000 over four or more years to create the illusion of residence in Canada.

    ““My department is working closely with the Canada Border Services Agency, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Canadian offices abroad to prevent people who are suspected of non-compliance with the permanent residence requirement from being admitted to Canada without proving they meet the requirements and take enforcement action when necessary,”” added Minister Kenney.

    To date, of the 4,400 permanent residents who have been flagged, nearly 1,400 people have withdrawn or abandoned their citizenship application because of new scrutiny.

    Permanent residents must acquire three years of residence out of four years to apply for Canadian citizenship. To retain their status as permanent residents, they must be physically present in Canada for two years out of five.

      This was another mistake decreasing the required years of citizenship to 3 years. Consider how many people got their citizenship and some were terrorists. Once they are citizens, their citizenship will never be revoked and they will never be deported if they commit crimes. Their citizenship could only be revoked if they commit treason. All in all the government has made some extreme blunders which is why so many people came here, remained here and obtained landed status and citizenship.
      Last year I read in the ethnic newspapers that some Vincentians applied for refugee status. Some of those applicants also from other countries were advised by their legal defense to claim refugee status and spousal abuse. I also read that there were many from St. Vincent who claimed that they were refugees and were abused by spouses and that if they returned they would be murdered.
      It must have been brought to the Federal Government, Minister of Immigration’s attention. This is why Vincentians must have a visa to enter Canada. I do not know much about St. Lucians. I will read about it in the ethnic papers. It may also be due to criminal activities.
      These people also give the islands and nationals a bad name. They migrated to this country and some of them prefer a life of crime. Well, the government is no longer putting up with them.
      They receive free legal counsel at the expense of taxpayers. They have cost the Canadian taxpayers an exorbitant sum of money. I have no empathy. Those who cannot conduct themselves in a proper law-abiding manner will bear the consequences. I will never defend such people. I have worked hard in this country and they are the ones who receive more than I and other hardworking Canadians/West Indians.

      Do not feel bad about that. Every nationality of the world do it. Even Americans come to Canad including some who are draft dodgers. I am certain that other European countries also experience this.
      The U.S. and Canada are targets. Canada of all for its lax immigration system and medical care. It is now changing. They are getting tougher. It is no longer easy to be landed here.
      The population has increased and there is a lot of unemployment. When people are unemployed, if they worked for a certain period they must apply for unemployment benefit. If they do not qualify for it, they will have to apply for social welfare benefits including those who were never employed. These are financial burden on the government in addition to other benefits which they will receive.
      The government has spent too much money and now realize that and so some services are being cut. This is a major problem today as goods and services increase. The list goes on. Times are not what they were in previous years. May God help us.

    Canada already has visa restrictions for DA

    • September 12, 2012

      Yep visa requirement for Dominican came in infect the very same year, PM Douglas came to Canada the year he departed this world

      He was interviewed regarding the sale of Dominica’s Passport and was asked to stop it. He replied and said, “Dominica is a Sovereign State no Government have the right to tell him what to do”, they also talked to him about the University riot

      He rejected the call of the Canadian Government, where they told him that the Canadian Government would assist Dominica instead of selling the passport to criminals from other countries.

      Also during that time they also putting visas for national of St Vincent which CIC revoked a few years after, visa requirement for St Vincent and St Lucia national something wrong is definitely taking place in those islands, which CIC is not buying

      So blame all this on the crooked governments of the Caribbean

      • Justice and Truth
        September 15, 2012

        Some years ago I heard and also read that Chinese nationals were caught in Toronto with Dominican passports. Immigration officials were suspicious because they could not speak English.
        Once they got the passport they could travel to any country and remain there. While there they could apply for landed status and if obtained soon after could become Canadian citizens.
        The government of Canada has a right to prevent criminals from entering this land. They will obviously pose a problem to Canada and its nationals. If they are suspicious of those who enter they will be deported.
        Selling passports is not a good idea. It is selling one’s country for money and to criminals. When will this be ceased?

      @Voice of Wisdom

      You have a point, but I believe that Dominica was put on guard so early because of the sudden rise in terrorism. At that time were put on guard, Osama Bin Laden was at large, and no one knew for sure, where his colleagues were established.

      Dominica, being a country which is kind of knew to the world, it was easy for those people to enter and to hide in Dominica, until they could get our passports–one way or the other–that would allow them to travel, so to continue with their works of terrorism against their enemy.

      It is bad enough that countires like Canada and the USA still have to keep looking over their shoulder, in case of Bin Ladden’s counterparts–even if he is dead–much more to have people who do the crimes against their own people flowing in there countries.

      If only we human beings would learn to practice peace and harmony among each other–What a wonderful world this would be, to live in!

      You see money and power effects change. Yes tourist do commit crimes in the islands too-but as usual, skin color and status usually gets a free pass in this life. The number of illegal tourists who lives on the island, and working in St. Lucia, it amazes me. I went to a bar/club on holiday in St. Lucia one time, and my cousin introduced me to a bunch of tourists who hang out at that bar/club almost every weekend. They drive nice cars, but downplay they live and work in the island illegally. And yes, I am talking about blonde hair, blue eyes Caucasians. So to the ignorant fools who comes on here and talk like it’s only West Indians who go to North America, work and live there illegally, please-crawl out from under the rock you live, give Facebook a break and get into the real world and get on with the times. Crap is real out there!

    that’s what happens when they all claim refugee asylum when they get here.

    I always said that this would happen because toomany islanders are claiming that they arerunning from persecution…

    • September 12, 2012

      @I’mWondering

      I have been living in Toronto, Canada, from Giraudel in Dominica since 1974; my papers were approved right at home, after talking with a Canadian representative at Fort Yonge Hotel. My aunt in Canada at the time had sponsored me.

      That is to tell you that there was a time Dominicans had no trouble immigrating Canada and to settle here. I was able to simply send my relatives a plane ticket, as they came to spend some time with me here–I would apply for extension time for them–no trouble! My mother and father, my brother, and three sisters, and a close friend, have spent much time with us–one of my sister and I who live in Toronto today.

      You mention that “too many islanders claiming that they are running from persecution” My question is what kind of persecution would a person from the islands experience–if not simply, consistent domestic disputes at their own homes, which they could have brought unto themselves?

      I am saying that there is no kind of “persecution” in the Islands that would qualify a person for refugee status in countries like Canada–it would have to be “political persecution”, and the government of Canada would know that as well.

      So that is the reason for the strictness that is imposed on us right now, pertaining to immigrating–lying and cheating does not take us anywhere! Unfortunately, innocent people are always the victim.

      Now is costing a whole lot of money including a trip to Barbados–to obtain a visa– for me to get one of my people to visit me.

      Are you living under a rock? It’s been years since Dominicians need visas to travel to Canada.

      All you let us all laugh at that idiot. ha ha ha a ha ha. Got to be a red bug – ignorant as always. The poor soul don’t even know there are more Chinese with Dominican passports in Canada than actual born and bred Dominicans in Canada.

        It may sound funney to you, but this is not a laughing matter. This kind of bold ignorance and the lack of understanding certain issures are too easily displayed among us–that is how most of the difficult problems we have in our lives are born.

        People have to learn to keep quiet when they are not certain of what is going on, or they should ask questions in a humble way, with the intention of learning.

        In this case, the majority already knows the truth. But what about the times one “stinking idea” is evolved, and everybody clings to it–because they do not know what is the truth?

        Fellow Dominicans this is something to think about, before we accept what we hear from those who are working above us. In other words let us be more careful!

      Forgive my outrightness…but why do you people choose to comment on topics that you are not informed of? Stop this level of ignorance; read, inform yourselves, keep abreast with current developments and THEN comment. I remember clearly when visa restrictions were imposed on Dominica, for passport ‘crookedness’. Hmmph!

    This should be a wakeup call for governments who continue to sell passports to unscrupulous individuals.
