I am visiting the USA with a B1/B2 visa, with a Kenyan passport. Do I need a visa to visit Canada and if I do, what are requirements and the process for me to be able to get a visitor's visa?


Kenyan nationals do normally require a visa to visit Canada.

To apply for a visa, you must show evidence of your legal status in the territory where you're applying.


In your case, proof of immigration status will be

  • the visa you used to enter the US
  • the stamp you received when you entered the US, and
  • a print-out of your I-94 record, for which you'll need to visit http://i94.cbp.dhs.gov.

Other requirements are substantially the same as for your B1/B2 visa, or indeed for any visitor's visa. You must have a reasonable purpose for your trip, you must have enough money for your trip, and so on. These requirements are also covered in the sources cited above.
