The Embassy of Portugal in Ottawa represents Portuguese interests in Canada. Portugal is strongly committed to an ambitious transatlantic relationship and to a stronger bilateral partnership. The Embassy works both at the Federal and Provincial levels to develop new avenues of cooperation between our two nations to bring about even more trade, more investment, more tourism, more contacts between our civil societies as well as stronger political, cultural and educational ties.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Canada and Portugal will start in January 2019.
The intend of the MoU is to promote and facilitate access to opportunities that enable youth (between ages of 18 and 35) of one country to gain a better understanding of the other country's language(s), culture and society through travel, work and life experience abroad.
The submission of the visa application for Canadian citizens is expected to be made at the Portuguese consular posts of the area of residence, which will confirm that applicants are eligible under this MoU.
Portuguese citizens are expected to apply via the Government of Canada's online application portal.
