Visit Visa

A visit visa is also known as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). It is a legal document that permits foreign nationals to enter Canada. Whether you belong to a visa-exempt country or visiting Canada as a student or temporary worker, a Canada visit visa is a must-have.

Types of Canadian Visitor Visa

There are two types of Canadian visitor visas:

  1. Single entry visas
  2. Multiple entry visas

Single entry visas permit foreign nationals to visit Canada only one-time. Multiple entry visas permit foreign nationals to visit Canada for six months as many times as they want to visit, as long as the visa is valid. The visa can be valid for up to 10 years. You are not required to apply for multiple or single visas as the applicants are automatically considered for Canada to visit visa multiple entry. Single-entry visas are only issued under certain conditions.

Who Needs a Visitor Visa

Anyone who wants to travel to Canada but not has a Canada permanent resident card or otherwise visa-exempt requires a visitor visa. Canadian permanent residents and Canadian residents, including dual residents, are not allowed to apply for a visitor visa in Canada.

How to Apply Canada Visit Visa

Applicants can apply for a visitor visa online with a paper application or visit a Visa Application Center (VAC). If you are going with your family, each family member, including dependent children, must be required to fill their own application. But, you may submit family visit visa applications together. Biometric information is also required in the application, depending upon your country of citizenship. The biometric submission requires your fingerprints and photo at a biometric collection service point. The information can be collected after the submission of a visitor visa application when you are incited to do as such. It may also be collected as a submission if you submit it directly to a person at a Visa Application Center (VAC).

Extending a Visitor Visa Canada

The validity for the visitor visas, whether a single entry or multiple entries, is for up to six months. When your legal status expires, you must leave Canada. Otherwise, legal actions can be taken against you. If foreign nationals want to extend their stay, they must apply for a visa extension when their temporary resident visa status is valid. You need to apply for an extension of at least 30 days before your status expires. During this period, if your current visit visa is expired and your extension application is under process, you may remain in Canada and wait for a decision. This is called implied status.
