Canada

Citizens of dozens of countries - including the US, most Western European and Commonwealth countries as well as Mexico,

Japan, South Korea and Israel - don't need visas to enter Canada for stays of up to 180 days. US permanent residents are also exempt from obtaining visas, regardless of their nationality.

Nationals of around 150 other countries, including South Africa, Hong Kong and Poland, need to apply for a 'temporary resident visa' (TRV) with the Canadian visa office in their home country (usually at the embassy, high commission or consulate). The website maintained by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC; www.cic.gc.ca) has full details, including office addresses and the latest requirements. A separate visa is required if you plan to study or work in Canada.
