Canadian Visitor Visa

Overseas travel has been somewhat of a popular activity in recent years. It not only allows one to travel to new places, but it also expands the horizons by exposing him or her to different experiences, cultures, and customs. It promotes cultural sensitivity, pushes people out of their comfort zones, and facilitates the acquisition of new life experiences and knowledge.

About canadian visit visa

A Canadian Visitor Visa is also known as a Temporary Resident Visa, and allows an applicant to stay within Canada temporarily for less than or more than 6 months from the day they entered Canada or until his or her passport expires, whichever comes first. The Canadian Visit Visa allows an applicant to:

  • To unite with a family member
  • To visit on business
  • To attend a funeral or provide support to a critically ill person
  • To join a vessel (marine crew member)
  • To assume a diplomatic post, or
  • To come with an immediate family member who’s assuming a diplomatic post

Minimum eligibility criteria

The IRCC set some basic eligibility requirements for applicants willing to apply for a Canadian Visit Visa. These are:

  • The applicant should be in good health and have no criminal record.
  • The applicant should have ties such as a job, home, financial assets, or family that will take him or her back to their home country.
  • The applicant needs to convince an immigration officer that he or she will leave Canada at the end of his or her visit.
  • The applicant should have enough money to cover the cost of his or her stay in Canada. The amount of required funds depends on how long the stay will be and if the visitor will stay in a hotel, or with friends or relatives.

List of required documents

Applicants planning to enter Canada need to submit an online application with the required set of documents. If travelling as a family, then each family member, including children under the age of 18, must fill out a separate application. The list of documents one needs to submit with a visa application includes:

  • Proof of vaccination, and negative COVID-19 test result (taken within 72 hours of departure)
  • ArriveCAN receipt (electronic or paper)
  • A valid passport with an expiry date that is after six months or more.
  • Documents that prove you have enough ties to your home country.
  • Purpose of Travel, and a Letter of Invitation (from friend, or family member)
  • Travel Itinerary
  • Proof of funds to support your visit

Depending on their country of citizenship, applicants may be asked to include biometric information in their application. Applicants need to give biometrics if they haven’t given biometrics in the last 10 years.
