The demand for organs is very high globally. The Canada Intending Organ Donors Visa has been created by the Government of Canada for assisting the process of organ donation.
The numbers of sick individuals who wait for prospective organ donor or transplant are high in the world, including Canada. It is for this reason that nations facilitate overseas donors to arrive and donate their organs if they want to.
Canada Intending Organ Donors Visa is a kind of TRV – Temporary Resident Visa. It permits the individual to arrive at Canada for a short time period, normally for 6 months or lesser. The Visa holder cannot try and obtain Citizenship of Canada or documents issued in Canada. They are also not entitled to benefits in Canada like health insurance or social security, as quoted by the CIC News.
The donor is only permitted to arrive at Canada for donating an organ to a needy person. They can remain in the hospital for recovery and have to then go back to their home nation. The stay at the hospital can be covered by the organ transplant recipient. It could also be covered by any humanitarian organization facilitating organ donation in Canada.
Apart from the general requirements, Canada Intending Organ Donors Visa applicant must also fulfil 3 other eligibility criteria:
- The organ intended for donation must be compatible with the organ recipient and there must be evidence to demonstrate this
- The expenses for the organ donation must be covered by the health insurance of the recipient. It can also be covered by an organization that facilitates organ transplants. The donor must also have proof for private health insurance.
- The donor must not be selling the organ to the recipient and there must be proof that there is no trafficking of organs and it is a wilful organ donation
