Travel Visa Validity – What You Need To Know
Travellers are responsible for checking the validity and accuracy of their travel documents. Before going on your international trip, make sure to verify the details of your visa in your passport. Many visas are date-specific and you could be denied entry to your destination if your travel date changes. Visit our Travel Visa Samples page to see examples of visas and key information you should look for to ensure your document is accurate.

Legalisations Explained And How CIBT Can Assist You
Whether you’re a Canadian citizen or a foreign national, you may at some point find yourself in need of legalisation services. Legalisation is the process of authenticating a document by a foreign government. The process tends to be complicated and time consuming. Depending on the situation, your document may need to be translated, notarized, taken to the Government of Canada and to a foreign embassy to be considered valid. We can help you determine what steps you will need in order to get your document legalised. Learn more about our Legalisation Services.

Passing Through A Foreign Country? Check If Your Nationality Requires A Visa
Transit visa regulations change all the time. Depending on your nationality, a visa to transit by air or by land may be required. We ensure our application kits are always up to date so we can provide you with the best travel experience, without you having to worry about the details. Visit our website to verify if your nationality requires a transit visa.

Let The Government Of Canada Know Your Travel Plans
The Government of Canada recommends Canadian citizens register with the Canadian Embassy(s) in the countries they plan to visit. Feel more secure about your international travels by having CIBT register your trip with the Government of Canada, Department of Foreign Affairs. Registration notifies the Canadian Embassy in each country of your travel plans and you will receive travel advisory and warning notifications. Learn more and register.
