Visitor Visa

A visitor visa (also called a temporary resident visa) is an official document that we put in your passport. It shows that you meet the requirements needed to enter Canada.

Most travelers need a visitor visa to come to Canada. You may also need one if you’re transiting through a Canadian airport on your way to your final destination

Meeting the eligibility

Some basic requirements must be met to get a visitor visa. Your application should cover factors that will demonstrate that you:

will leave Canada at the end of your visit

have no criminal or immigration-related convictions

have strong ties to your home country

have a valid reason to visit Canada

What if you are not allowed to enter Canada?

Some people are not admissible to Canada, which means they are not allowed to enter the country. You can be inadmissible for several reasons, including being involved in:

  • criminal activity
  • human rights violations
  • organized crime

You can also be inadmissible for security, health, or financial reasons.

Also, it is important to understand the legal requirements if your minor children will be traveling with you or with someone else or alone.

Extending your stay in Canada

If you wish to extend your stay in Canada, the application process is different compared to applying for a visitor visa. To extend your visit to Canada, you will need to apply for a visitor record (not a visa). It allows you to stay longer in Canada.

It is always a good idea to speak to an experienced and knowledgeable professional to make sure that you know your rights and privileges. Contact OMRAM Global for assistance.
