Before applying for a visitor visa, there are some details you should know about Temporary Resident Visas and visiting Canada.
Who are Visitors?
Visitors are persons who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada, and are legally authorized to enter Canada. Their reasons for coming to Canada may be to visit Canada on holiday (vacation), visit family, or conduct business in Canada. Visitors are restricted to a specific length of stay and are subject to various conditions.
What is a Temporary Resident Visa?
A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) is an official document issued by a Canadian visa office that is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident. There are different types of Temporary Resident Visas depending on why you want to be in Canada. If you are coming as a visitor, there is a Single Entry Visa or a Multiple Entry Visa (link to page). You might also be coming to Canada as a student or a worker.
Do I need a Visa to visit Canada?
Some people need a visa to visit Canada, while others do not. This will depend on their country of citizenship. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (SOR/2002-227) provide instructions on who is exempt from the need for a TRV as a visitor.
What are requirements I must meet for a Temporary Resident Visa?
You must show the immigration officer that you meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and its Regulations. If you meet these requirements, you must show the officer that you will only be staying in Canada for a limited time.
You must also:
- Ensure that it is clear to the officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your authorized stay,
- Provide evidence that you are able to support yourself and whoever is traveling with you while you are in Canada,
- Ensure that it is clear to the officer that you do not intend to work or study in Canada unless authorized to do so,
- Prove that you are law-abiding and have no record of criminal activity,
- Prove that you are not a risk to the security of Canada,
- Provide any additional document requested by the officer to establish your admissibility, and
- Prove that you are in good health (complete a medical examination if required).
