Airlines check for valid visas


Airlines at Prague airport have been checking Canada-bound Czech passengers on Thursday to make sure that they had the required visas for entry into the country. Some of the Czechs flying out complained about last minute stress over Canada’s decision to re-impose restrictions, having had to seek visas at the Canadian embassy in Vienna. More than 300 visa applications were made by Friday with Canadian officials saying they had refused around 1.0 percent of applicants.
