How do Canadian Visitor Visas Work?

Every year thousands of people qualify to enter Canada on a temporary basis. A Canadian Visitor Visa allows an individual to come to Canada for a variety of reasons. The following are the two categories of Visitor Visas:

  • Single entry visitor visa
  • Multiple entry visitor visa

The multiple entry visitor visas allow the holder to enter and exit Canada multiple times within the validity period as opposed to a single entry where one can only enter once.

Obtaining a Canadian Visitor Visa is often difficult and sometimes omitting a minor detail can result in a denied application. It is for this very reason that the expertise and experience of an immigration professional are so critical.

Who can apply for Canadian Visitors Visa?

Canadian Visitor Visas is for individuals who wish to come to Canada, whether on vacation to explore our vast wilderness, ski our world-class mountains, or maybe just to visit family or friends. One might want to make a business exploratory visit to seek investment opportunities in Canada. If you are from a country that is not visa-exempt (i.e., Canada requires you to retain a visa to enter the country), you must apply for a Visitor Visa.

Application of the Visitor Visa should be done well before you plan on entering the country. It is important that you consult an immigration specialist to ensure that your application is processed correctly.
