Consider the following scenario- You are in Canada visiting family or as a student or perhaps visiting Canada as a tourist. You wish to extend your stay in Canada or perhaps you wish to change your visitor status.

One can apply for a Canadian visa extension. However, the application process for such an extension can be considerably complicated resulting in many applicants not obtaining their desired request. Seek the help of an experienced immigration consultant.

Upon entering Canada there is a defined period of time during which one can legally stay in the country. If one would like to extend their stay or change their conditions, it should be done from inside Canada. However, the acceptance of such a request depends on how thoroughly the application process has been followed as well as the case the individual has presented to justify their stay. Even a minute error in the application process can result in the rejection of the Visa extension.

Who can apply for a Canadian Visa Extension?

An application for a visa in Canada can be made by individuals who are already in Canada. This includes the following categories

  • Visitors to Canada
  • Study permit holders
  • Work permit holders

When applying for a Canadian visa extension the applicant must have a valid visa status in the country.
