Why should you visit Canada?

Canada is one of the most developed countries in the world and the second largest. It is very economically prosperous and tourism is a large part of the economy.

In 2019, Tourism contributed around $39 billion to Canada’s economy.

What is a Canadian Visit Visa

A visitor visa is a document allowing citizens of visa required countries to enter Canada as a visitor for up to six months. The two main types of visitor visas are single entry and multiple entry visas. Evidently, single entry visas only allow for one entry into Canada while multiple entry visas allow multiple entries while the visa is valid.

Application Process

Canada Visitor Visa Requirements

The basic requirements for a visitor visa are as follows, the applicant must:

Have a valid travel document (ie. passport)

Be in good health

Have no criminal convictions

Convince the immigration officers that they intend to go back home once the visa expires and that they have sufficient ties to their home country - this is generally done through assets, finance, family, and work back in the applicant’s home country.

Have enough money for their stay - this will depend on the length of the stay and other conditions such as where they will be staying.

Canada Visit Visa Cost and Processing Time for Visitor Visa Renewal

The processing time for the visitor visa application will vary depending on the home country of the applicant. Generally, it can take around a month. The processing fee for the visitor visa is $100 per person, in addition to this applicants may have to pay the $85 biometrics fee. If applying for a family of 5 or more, the processing fee will be capped at $500. If extending a visitor visa, a processing fee of $100 will apply and if restoring visitor status, a processing fee of $200 will apply.

How to Apply for Visitor Visa for Canada

Before applying for the visitor visa, applicants must determine if they are eligible and gather the appropriate documents to prove their eligibility. Applicants will then apply online, upload the appropriate documents, and pay the application fees. Applicants will then be required to give biometric data – fingerprints and photo ID – at their local visa center. Once this is done, the application will be processed and if it is approved, the visa will be stamped into the applicant’s passport.

Types of Visitor Visas in Canada

You can visit Canada to see family, friends, for tourism or other reasons. You will most likely have to request a temporary residence visa before coming to Canada unless you’re from a visa-exempt country.

Single Entry Visitor Visa

You can enter Canada only once during this visa’s period of validity. (Only for business purposes).

The expiry date is usually set one month after the arrival date in Canada but can be extended for a period of 6 months

Multiple Entry Visitor Visa

You could obtain this visa for a maximum 10-year period of validity and you’ll be able to enter the country as many times as necessary.

What if a Visitor Visa is Not Necessary?

Citizens and some permanent residents of countries that are not required to obtain a travel visa will need to apply for an electronic travel authorization (eTA) to visit Canada through a commercial airline.

Under normal circumstances, you can receive an approved Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) within minutes. However, if you fill in the wrong information, it can take several weeks or even months to receive a final decision.

Obtaining an Invitation Letter

To visit Canada and if you have a host, you can include a letter of invitation from your host. It must be compelling and well written. It is also beneficial if it is notarized.
