New Jamaican Visa Requirements for Canada (March 2016)

So I started doing some research cause I was thinking of Bringing my lovely husband to Canada. Here is what I found out. It sounds like Babylon to me.

Traveling from Jamaica as  a Jamaican

on a visitors visa  new Requirements

visitors visa jamaica to canada

Based on your selections, you need to give your biometric information (fingerprints and photograph) if you plan to come to Canada.You must give this information if you are applying for a visitor visa, a study permit or a work permit.

If you have more than one passport

You must use the same passport or travel document for the entire application process. For instance, the passport you use for your visa application must be the same one you use when you give your biometric information at a Visa Application Centre (VAC) or an Application Service Centre (ASC) in the U.S.


If you have already submitted your application

If you would like to change the nationality on your application, you will need to:

withdraw your application by contacting the visa office responsible for your country or territory.
submit a new application and pay the applicable fees.
Note: If you gave your biometric information before you withdraw your application, the biometric fee will not be refunded.

Give your fingerprints and photograph

Giving your fingerprints and photograph is a safe, fast and clean process that only takes about five minutes to complete. An operator will take a digital photograph of your face and ask you to put your fingers on a glass screen to be scanned. You can find out more about how to give your fingerprints and photograph from this video.

If you apply for visa online

IRCC will send you a biometric instruction letter by email through your MyCIC account when we receive your application.

Follow the instructions in the letter. Print a copy of the letter and bring it along with your passport or other travel document when you go to the biometric collection centre.

See the Biometric collection centre points table to find out where to go.

If you apply in person at a Visa Application Centre (VAC)

Give your biometrics when you submit your application. Before taking your fingerprints and photograph, the VAC staff will make sure that your application is complete and confirm that you have paid the correct fees.

Go to a VAC in New York or California, or go to an Application Support Center (ASC) between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to give your biometrics. You do not need to make an appointment.

Go to the ASC closest to the zip code you gave on your application.

Your $85 CAD biometric fee covers the cost of having your biometrics taken at the ASC.

NOTE: ASCs do not accept immigrant or temporary resident applications and cannot provide information or application handling services.

You can pay both your biometric and application fee at the same time.The biometric fee is $85 CAD per person.
Families pay a maximum of $170 CAD when all family members submit their application together at the same time and place.
Groups of three or more performing artists and their staff pay a maximum of $255 CAD when their applications are submitted at the same time and place.

Find out how to pay and the methods of payment accepted by Canadian visa offices. Make sure you pay the correct fees to avoid any delays in processing your application.VAC application services included in the biometric fee

If you submit your application in person at a VAC, the biometric fee includes the cost of collecting your biometrics and handling your application. The VAC staff will make sure your application is complete, send it to the visa office and let you know when your passport or travel document is returned.

List of exemptions for biometrics
You do not need to give biometrics if you are:

  1. 13 years old and under
  2. 80 years old and over
  3. a diplomat, a consular officer, a representative or official of:
  4. a country
    the United Nations or any of its agencies
    any intergovernmental organization where Canada has a membership who is travelling to Canada on official business (accompanying family members are also exempt)

  5. in Canada as a student or worker and eligible to apply for a temporary resident visa to study or to work

  • To minimize the delays in processing your application:

  • Apply online or in person at a VAC. Do not mail your application.
  • Pay both the application and biometric fees when you submit your application.
  • Give your biometrics at the same time as you apply at a VAC or within a few days of getting your biometric instruction letter.
  • Consider travel time when planning if you need to go to a VAC or Application Support Center (ASC).
  • Make sure that all family members who are applying for a visa go together to the same VAC or ASC to give biometrics.
  • If you have a temporary injury or decoration (such as henna) on your face or hands, wait until the injury has healed or the decoration has completely faded before you give your biometrics.
  • A temporary injury or medical condition is one that will likely heal or improve over time, and can include:
bandaged face or fingers due to minor cuts or burns,
rashes, and other temporary skin conditions.

If you have a permanent injury or condition on your face or hands, go to a VAC or ASC to have your photograph and any available fingerprints taken. A permanent injury or medical condition is one that will not heal or improve over time. Bring any documentation you have about your condition.
NOTE: If you are about to reach your 80th birthday, VACs cannot collect biometrics from applicants 80 years of age and over. If you are 79 years old when you submit your application but will turn 80 before you give your biometrics, you must contact your Canadian visa office to make arrangements to have your biometrics collected there. If you are in the United States, you can still give your biometrics at the nearest ASC.

Arriving in Canada from Jamaica

When you arrive in Canada, a border services officer will use your biometrics to verify that you are the same person who received the visa.

Find out more about what to expect when you arrive in Canada.

Your privacy will be protected

Your fingerprints, photograph, and the personal information you gave in your application will be handled in line with Canada’s privacy laws.

Your personal information will be kept safe. Your biometric information will be encrypted and sent by a secure connection to the Government of Canada and stored in a secure database. It will then be deleted from the VAC or ASC computer system. The staff at VACs and ASCs will not have access to your biometric information.

Understanding Jamaican women and Culture

jamaican womanA Jamaican woman is different than any other woman. We have our minds set! We know what we want and what we don’t want! Jamaicans in general, don’t really believe in pretending to make others happy. We are not raised like that. Some find our way of living and thinking “harsh” but the truth is a Jamaican woman’s heart is soft as a Kitten…but wait, you will only see that side, once she has decided and realized on her own in her own time, that she does indeed love you. Until then things may be a little rough and tough.
A Jamaican woman’s mind set
You are probably a man who is not Jamaican. But, perhaps you have a crush on a Jamaican woman, or perhaps you are dating a Jamaican woman and want to learn a little bit more about her mind set and her way of life. I will do the best I can to explain things to you so that you close this book feeling as if you have just been the mind of a Jamaican woman. I have written for you “Jamaican Women: 21 things about dating a Jamaican woman.” Enjoy!
#1 She wears the pants
Jamaican women are taught from they are very young, to stand strong and don’t let anybody or anything defeat them in life. In most Jamaican households the woman wears the pants. This position is passed down from generation to generation, and from household to household. This ultimately means that the woman has the final say. The head woman is the most vocal, and the one who bosses everybody else around including children and husband. Just so you know. Jamaican women tend to be loud and aggressive when it comes to ruling and taking care of their household and their family. Anything less is seen as weak.
#2 The “Dutty” Jamaican gal
In Jamaican culture a woman who can physically fight and win, is seen as sort of a heroin, strong, and not weak. In Jamaican culture, coming to blows is normal just so you know. These types of Jamaican women are often known as dirty Jamaican Gal. These are the types, who fight with other girls, sometimes fight with men, who swear, who have no self respect, who have multiple baby fathers, who will say anything just to get what they want. You will know if you are presently dating a Dutty Jamaican Gal.
#3 The Bible believers
There are some Jamaican people who are very serious about God. Back in the day Jamaica used to be a very religious place. Now, those who are hard core Christians are considered out dated in a sense. A Jamaican woman, who loves God and leans on the lord for all situations, will have a lot to teach you about life and God. These types of Jamaican women tend to be more trust worthy because they often feel that for all that they do and do not do, they will be held accountable by the Almighty creator. These Jamaican women tend to be slow to be intimate, and believe in marriage and family. They also tend to read their bible at night and in the morning religiously. No pun intended.
#4 Your Dinning Etiquette
how to cook for a jamaicanI once went on a first date with a guy. Just the way he ate his food and decided that it was ok to leave rib sauce surrounding his mouth until he was completely finished his meal (with me sitting across the table) ….really pissed off, and turned me off. I knew that was going to be not only our first date, but our last. Uncleanliness especially while eating is something that many Jamaican people will not tolerate. Jamaican people have major cleaning “issues” for lack of a better word. We are not changing anytime soon.
Please when you dine with your Jamaican woman, be sure your fingers and your face are clean. Eat and then clean your mouth and fingers as needed. That is how we do it, and that is exactly what we expect. Also if your Jamaican woman has something on her face while she is eating, it is your responsibility as her King in Jamaican Culture for you to tell her….we take offense if you don’t do it….Just so you know.

#5 Her Kissing Vows – Fresh Breath! – Jamaican people have a big jamaican love“thing” about fresh breath. Be sure when you try to kiss your Jamaican, your breath is very fresh. Use tooth paste to brush your teeth, and chew some gum just before or spray some breath spray.
Daily Hygiene – Jamaicans take proper daily hygiene practices very seriously. If a Jamaican man or a Jamaican woman suspects that you do not practice proper hygiene, such as daily showering etc. trust me Nelly…they will not kiss you! So, be sure you shower every day, wear deodorant and do your laundry regularly. No weird gross odors emanating from your body.
Monogamy – Jamaicans don’t like to think for one second you are “sharing your mouth” with others, and that now you are attempting to “swap” those germs with them through a kiss? No! So, demonstrate that you are the monogamous type, by dating only them if you want a Jamaican to kiss you. Read the rest of “Jamaican women: 21 things about dating a Jamaican woman”
