Visa Requirements for Canada Passport Holders – United Kingdom (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland)

For stays of less than 6 months and travel for the purpose of tourism and private visits, Canadians do not need to obtain visas for the United Kingdom. They will only need to demonstrate that they have adequate funds for the duration of their stay in the UK and present proof of return or onward travel. Failure to do so could lead to a denial of entry to the UK and detention while awaiting removal from the territory.

Canadian citizens who intend to travel to the UK for employment, even voluntary and unpaid work, studies, marriage, etc. should obtain the appropriate permits and visas before departing Canada.

The UK Border Agency has implemented a 5-tier visa regulation system and Canadian travelers should consult the UKBA website to ensure that they have the proper information with regards to their purpose of visit.

Alternately, they may consult the British High Commission and its consulates for up-to-date information on visa requirements.
