02 October 2013 - Changes at Canada Visa Application Center

From October 2, 2013, Canada Visa Application Centre in Chisinau will be operated by IOM in partnership with VFS Global. This new partnership is part of a contract awarded by the Government of Canada and will enhance service delivery for clients in Moldova.

The current VAC operations will close on October 1, 2013, and the Canada Visa Application Centers operating under the new VFS-IOM partnership will open on October 2, 2013 in the morning.

Where is the new CVAC?

The CVACs will continue to operate from the same location.

What will this mean for my application?

The outcome of your application will not be affected. You can still submit your visa application at CVAC as normal. A new website and online tracking system will also operate from October 2, 2013.


Please be advised that all applications submitted between September 9, 2013 – October 2, 2013 must use a pre-paid courier service for the return of their visa decision. While we upgrade our service and processing systems, new applications submitted during this time will not be able to be returned in person via the CVAC. Thank you for your understanding. Please ask our staff if you have any questions.
