Once your new passport is delivered to you, only then you should book tickets.
ADVANTAGES OF BOOKING THROUGH NIS2 TRAVELDESK
1. Normally to book a ticket, one has to pay full ticket price, but here at NIS traveldesk you have
to pay only Rs 40000 of ticket cost to reserve your ticket and pay the rest on getting visa. Even if you don’t get visa and have a relative or friend who can buy your ticket, then that transfer is possible.
By depositing the amount and after getting visa for Canada, you will get a confirmed ticket as a part of group of saints travelling to Canada, the duration of which will be 9 to 10 nights depending on availability and as decided by SNM according to the arrangements in Canada, since 2000 saints have already confirmed their dates. So you must hurry with your reservation as the price can go up and tickets may be sold out.
