Visitor Visa


Need to visit Canada temporarily but don’t know how? We are here to help you. Applying for a temporary visa to Canada, typically known as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), involves a series of steps. This visa allows tourists, business visitors, or those who want to visit the family to stay in Canada for a set period, usually up to six months. Here’s a guide on how to apply for a temporary visa.

First, decide the type of temporary visa you need:

  • Visitor Visa (Tourist Visa)
    • Visiting Canada for leisure or to visit family and friends.
  •  Business Visitor Visa
    • Visiting Canada for business activities without entering the Canadian labor market
  •  Super Visa
    • Specifically for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents, allowing longer stays.

Before applying, ensure you meet the eligibility criteria, such as:

  •  Having a valid travel document
    • passport
  •  Being in good health
    • a medical exam might be required
  •  Having no criminal or immigration-related convictions
  •  Convincing an immigration officer that you have ties—
    • such as a job, home, financial assets, or family—that will take you back to your home country.
  •  Convincing an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit
  •  Having enough money for your stay
    • the amount needed can vary depending on the situation

The required documents for a Canadian temporary visa application typically include:

  •  A valid passport with an expiry date (no sooner than a year) 
  •  Two recent passportsized photos.
  •  Financial proof to support your stay 
    • bank statements
    • employment evidence
    • accommodation booking
  •  An itinerary if you have planned one
  •  A letter of invitation from someone who lives in Canada, if applicable
  •  Proof of ties to your home country
  •  Application fees

Complete the application form for a temporary resident visa available on the Government of Canada’s website. Ensure all sections are completed accurately and that the application is signed where required.

The application fee for a temporary resident visa must be paid online during the submission process. Ensure you receive a receipt for the transaction, which you’ll need to include with your application package.

You can apply online or submit a paper application through a Visa Application Centre (VAC) in your country. Applying online is generally faster and allows you to track the status of your application easily.

Most applicants will need to provide biometrics (fingerprints and a photo). After submitting your application, you might also be called for an interview at a Visa Application Centre.
