Visas & International Travel

Official Invitation Letter and Visa to enter Canada for international attendees:

Traveling to Canada involves advanced planning. Please determine ahead whether you will require a Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or VISA to enter Canada to ensure you meet all requirements and deadlines.

Official invitation letter can be generated through the Global Petroleum Show (GPS) registration process.

Please note: It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to obtain the necessary paperwork for entry to Canada. The invitation letter does not guarantee that you will be granted a visa, nor does it commit GPS or DMG to assist you in obtaining a visa. GPS or DMG will not pay any expenses incurred by you. We cannot send the letter to the embassy or consulate for you, nor can DMG contact the embassy or consulate on your behalf.

Review visa wait times and then visit your local Canadian embassy or consular office website where you will apply for your visa.

Note: You may need an eTa if you are an international visitor

Invitation letters are only issued to paid delegates or presenters; please purchase your delegate pass prior to requesting a letter. If there are any issues with your admission to Canada, your fees will be returned

Please ensure you provide the following information to ensure you receive your invitation letter promptly:

  • full name
  • company details (name, mailing address, phone)
  • your passport number, citizenship and date of birth
  • duration of stay information (dates and accommodations)
  • abstract ID and/or registration confirmation number

Please note that we will only issue invitation letters and cannot help with your application or with border services. It is your responsibility to apply for the appropriate visa with the appropriate documentation. We suggest leaving ample processing time for your entry visa. Current processing times can be found at the Government of Canada Immigration page.
