Canada to lift visa requirement for Czechs soon|
Canada will in the near future lift a visa requirement for Czechs visiting
the country. The news was reported by the site Canada.com and confirmed on
Thursday by the Canadian Embassy in Prague. Ottawa imposed the restriction
four years ago following a spike in asylum applications from Czechs, many of
whom were from the Roma minority.
The Czech government had appealed to the European Union to put pressure on
Canada to abolish the visa requirement.
