Antigua and Barbuda will no longer have to endure the added expense of traveling to the Canadian High Commissions in Barbados or Trinidad to apply for a Canadian visa.

This is according to Minister of Foreign Affairs, E.P. “Chet” Greene, who made the major announcement through a press statement on Monday.

The statement read: “the Government of Canada has decided to send a team of officials to Antigua and Barbuda and other member states of the OECS to collect biometrics from nationals of Antigua and Barbuda and the sub-region, seeking visas to enter Canada.”

The release also said that the development was embraced openly by the minister who described it as a “great convenience” to Antiguans and Barbudans, “saving them both time and money since they will no longer have to travel to Trinidad or Barbados to provide their biometric details.”
