14-08-2009  Jan Velinger

Canada has issued 2,503 visas to Czechs in the first month of renewed visa requirements and only rejected three applicants, the Canadian embassy in Prague told the Czech news agency, ČTK, on Friday. Canada reimposed visas on Czechs on July 14th in response to the high number of asylum applicants from the Czech Republic – mostly from within the Roma community. The reinstatement came less than two years after visa requirements were dropped.
