  1. Hi Tommy,

    I’m a Malaysian trying to apply Canada visitor visa?

    Is it necessary to provide birth cert and marriage cert But I am not travelling with my spouse.

    Secondly, we have not make any travel arrangement as we would only like book our flight and hotels after visa is approved. Will that affect our chance of getting a visa?

    Thank you

  2. Hello, I’m a Malaysian, trying to apply a Canadian Visa.

    You wrote “If you owned a valid US Visa and visited USA before, you do not need to submit financial support documents.”

    May I know where did you obtain this information? Because I have a US Visa and I have visited the US before so it will really make my application process easier if I really don’t need to provide any financial support document. Thank you!

  3. Dear Mr Tommy Ooi
    I intend to visit Canada next month to attend a wedding of a relative in Toronto. I had travelled to Toronto 6 years ago under tourist’s visa. I also have a valid US visa .
    Now I would like to apply for a tourist visa but I was told I have to submit birth certificate, marriage certificate (to me irrelevant as I am a widow now)

    I intend to stay for 10 days with my relative inToronto , again I was told by a friend that I have to submit the birth certificate of the relative. I just want to clarify as this seems so much to bother my relative for this to send after all I am only visitor not applying for immigrant visa.

    I hope you could give me a proper information ,.

    Thank you
