Having A Baby In Canada

Postby Edur » Fri Feb 27, 2015 11:14 pm

Dear Oby,

Persons intending to visit Canada for medical reasons, including giving birth, must make all financial and medical arrangements before applying for a temporary resident visa.

You should obtain documentary proof of all medical and financial arrangements. This proof would normally consist of a letter from the hospital and treating physician agreeing to provide you with  pre and post natal care, and stating the costs of the care, and proof of your financial situation and ability to pay. Some hospitals may require pre-payment or a deposit, unless you have health care insurance that will cover such services.

Provided you can satisfy the visa officer that you can afford to give birth in Canada, that there are legitimate medical reasons for giving birth in Canada and that you have a strong incentive to return to your country after your visit to Canada -- family members, work, financial responsibilities, etc -- the application for a temporary resident visa should be approved.

Once your baby is born and you have obtained the provincial birth certificate, you may wish to apply for your child's Canadian passport.

There are no legal impediments to giving birth in Canada provided the visitor meets the usual admission criteria.
