Canadian Visitor Visa

The Canadan government offers numerous visas; however, the main one used for all tourism-related travels is the Visitor Visa. This entry permit is sometimes referred to as the Temporary Resident Visa.

Once you receive this document, it guarantees that you are qualified to cross the Canadian border. In most cases, holding the Visitor Visa makes the traveler eligible to stay in the country for up to 6 months.

There are two types of the Canadian Visitor Visa available. All foreign travelers can choose between a single-entry and multiple-entry permit. Read on for further information on the types, the application process, required documents, and more!

The Canadian Visitor Visa types

When it comes to the standard Canadian visas, even though there are two types available, most travelers receive the multiple-entry one assigned by the government.

Single-entry Visitor Visa

Allows its holders to visit Canada only one time within the validity period. However, it is only issued in limited circumstances, including:

  • a short official trip by a foreign visitor
  • taking part in a special one-time event in Canada
  • a case of applying particular guidelines or procedures

Multiple-entry Visitor Visa

Most-commonly issued type of Canadian visa is the multiple-entry one. This type of entry permit can stay valid for up to 10 years.

If your passport expires in less than a month, your visa to Canada becomes invalid. This type of entry permit allows numerous visits; each one usually can be as long as 6 months.

The Canadian government will choose the most appropriate type of visa for the purpose of your trip after reviewing your application.
