The centre is open to provide visa services, and biometric collection for persons who require a visa or work/student permit for Canada informed Chastanet.
Anton Edmunds, who serves as Saint Lucia’s High Commissioner to Canada and Ambassador to the US, said, “We are pleased with the opening of a Canada Visa Application Centre in Saint Lucia.”
