European passport holders do not require a visa to visit Canada. All you need is a valid passport, a return ticket and sufficient funds to support yourself and your dependents during your stay in Canada. European visitors to Canada who wish to also visit the United States must possess valid passports to be admitted; residents of Portugal are further required to have a visa.
Although it is rare, immigration officials may prevent the entry of visitors:
- who appear to pose a health risk.
- those they doubt will be able to support themselves and their dependents in Canada.
- whose willingness and means to return to the U.S. is in doubt.
As well, those admissible to Canada must not have a criminal record. This includes any convictions for driving while intoxicated.
If you have questions about your admissibility to enter Canada, contact your nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate for consultation.
