The government of St. Kitts and Nevis is preparing to lobby for restoration of visa-free entry for citizens of the twin-island Caribbean nation to Canada, a foreign ministry official told EFE on Tuesday. The official said the visa requirement was imposed in November 2014.
Foreign Minister Mark Brantley said in a statement, there is a plan to “engage Canada formally” although no formal discussions were held with new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his recent family vacation in Nevis.
The minister added the restoration of visa-free travel to Canada is important “because it is important for our reputation; it is important for our people to be able to travel freely to as many countries as possible.”
Brantley said the ministry is also working towards the elimination of the need for visas to travel to Ukraine, Indonesia and South Africa.
