Hello – Welcome to JustAnswer - My name is ***** ***** I’m happy to assist you today. I am a Canadian lawyer who is able to answer immigration law questions.
As a Legal Expert on this site, I can give you legal guidance about your question but there is no solicitor-client relationship created. As well, while I try to reply as soon as possible, if there is a delay in my reply, I may be away from my computer but please know that I will reply as soon as I can. Thank you for your understanding.
I am reviewing your question and will reply shortly. Thanks
Are you and your wife both St Maarten passport holders ?
Please feel free to ignore the pop- up option for a call. We can continue by text.
If you tell me which passport you hold, I will check to see if you and your wife require a visitor visa to visit Canada ?
I see - I am typing a longer reply now so it will be a few moments . Thanks
Immediate family members of foreign nationals such as work permit holders and international students should be allowed to enter Canada if they are entering for essential, non discretionary purposes under Canada's current travel restrictions. The final decision regarding your entry is up to the immigration officer at the border who will have to be satisfied that you are coming to reunite with your daughter and not for a brief visit.
Family members will have to obtain prior written authorization to enter as well as have a valid visitor visa. Jamaican passport holders need to have a Canadian visitor visa to enter and currently, applicants need to consult the link below to apply as Canada Immigration will simultaneously screen applicants for eligibility to enter under the Travel Restrictions.
Here is the link to apply
Here is the link from Canada Immigration's website on how to apply for the written authorization
Finally, here is the link to the most current Travel Restrictions which were just amended and which explain who needs to quarantine upon entry and who does not.
Hope this answers your question.
