I know an adult Lebanese that wants to immigrate to Canada, and I just want to know what are the requirements for him to do so. Does he need a Visa? Does he have to pay for anything? What are the general requirements for him to immigrate to Canada?

1 Answer 1


With more than 60 different Canadian visa categories, yes, he may be able to immigrate to Canada and, yes, there may be a fee. Without knowing specifics, it's difficult to provide anything but a general answer. It would be better to use the Government of Canada Immigration and Citizenship tools to determine whether your friend is eligible, what type of visa, how much it will cost, and how to apply.
