Canada to decide on visas Monday evening

Mr Fischer and Mr Kohout also addressed the current issue of Canadian visas for Czech citizens, saying that any introduction of visas would be met with a “proportionate and duly self-confident response”. Canadian officials have said the decision on whether to reinstate visas would be announced on Monday evening. Canada eliminated visa restrictions on Czech citizens in 1997, however recent surges in asylum requests made by emigrating Romany families has caused the country to consider reimplementing the restriction.
