Canada Visa Free Access

Canada Passport Holders 2023

Canada’s passport stands as one of the most powerful globally, granting visa-free access to 197 countries and territories, encompassing an impressive 86.8% of worldwide destinations. This figure represents 79.7% of the world’s wealth measured by GDP and 92.2% of worldwide travel popularity based on international visitors.

However, this measure simplifies by counting all destinations equally. At La Vida, our unique GDP and Travel Popularity measures go beyond, considering the “quality” of these destinations. This nuanced approach ensures not all countries are weighted equally, providing you with an intelligent assessment of the true value your investment brings in terms of visa-free access.

The combination of a second passport with your existing passport is often overlooked when deciding on an investor visa programme. Your existing passport already provides a list of visa-free travel destinations. When obtaining a second passport, it’s crucial to ensure that the added benefits complement your current travel privileges. Simply “doubling up” with the same visa-free destinations offers no tangible advantage. La Vida’s Passport Investment Report goes beyond a mere count of destinations; it analyses your unique combination, identifying the passport that best aligns with your travel profile and existing passport. Whether GDP holds significance for your frequent business travels or Travel Popularity is crucial for leisure and vacations, our report caters to your specific needs. This invaluable service, accompanied by a detailed analysis, is offered exclusively by La Vida at no cost to our clients.

Canada’s passport investment

Canada does not have a direct Citizenship by Investment Programme. However, they do provide a Residency by Investment Programme called the Start-Up Visa Programme. This pathway involves a minimum investment of €350,000 CAD into an innovative business. After maintaining a Permanent Residency permit in Canada for at least five years, investors become eligible to apply for Canadian Citizenship. Citizenship requirements include spending at least three full years in residency out of the five years. Additional legal fees and costs are applicable in the process.
