e-1794 (Issuance of visas)

Initiated by Josue Ramirez from Calgary, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Canada must assess Temporary Resident Visa applications equally, using the established criteria, including the purpose of the person’s trip, their economic situation, and their links to their country of origin;
  • Applications must be processed on a case-by-case basis, given the opportunity to applicants to present their cases by providing documentary evidence and any other relevant information to support it; and
  • The monthly number of rejected Temporary Resident Visa applications from Venezuela has increased exponentially since the political and economic crisis started deepening, resulting in the refusal of 216 applications in November 2016; 634 in June 2017; 468 in March 2018. The increase seems to continue in an exponential manner.
We, the undersigned, residents and citizens of Canada, call upon the Goverment of Canada to enforce fairness and transparency within Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for Venezuelan citizens who are Temporary Resident Visa applicants and to request the Minister of Citizenship, Refugees and Immigration to instruct Visa officers to abide by the applicable norms when Venezuelan citizens apply for Temporary Resident Visa and stop discriminating against applicants.
