If you have a Filipino friend or a relative, that wants to visit and tour Canada, it can be helpful to have a sponsor. The sponsor shall vouch that he or she shall be financially responsible to the Canadian Tourist Visa applicant’s show money and itinerary. Let a visa agency in Manila, Philippines discuss you the requirements and qualifications on being a sponsor.
The basic requirement for a sponsor is a letter of invitation, it is also often referred as a letter of sponsorship for travel agencies in the Philippines. The letter of invitation should include the sponsor’s and the tourist visa applicant’s details. These details are the following: complete name, address, contact details, and travel itinerary. Above all, the sponsor or inviter must able to include his or her source of income and the allotted budget for the visa applicant being sponsored. When applying for a Canadian Tourist Visa, your Filipino friend or relative may opt to directly apply in the Canadian Visa Center. The applicant may then provide this as part of the primary requirements. This is recommended to applicants who already have sufficient travel history, have applied a tourist visa in another country or embassy and is a professional or a skilled worker in the Philippines. Not because the Canadian Embassy only considers such requirements but rather, in case of applying for a visit visa, one should be able to easily match and comprehend on Canada’s Immigration Policy and Philippine’s Immigration Laws.
