What is Canada's Visitor Visa?

The Canada Visit Visa is a straightforward visa application allowing foreign nationals to enter Canada for up to six months. Single-entry visas and multiple-entry visas are the two types of visitor visas available in Canada. A single-entry visa allows its holder to enter the country only once during the duration of the visa. Multiple-entry visas allow their holders to enter and exit Canada as many times as they wish while the visa is valid. Foreign nationals are automatically considered for multiple entry visas; single-entry visas are awarded only in rare circumstances.

The following information is pertinent to this visa:

  • Typically, the visit visa is issued in 27 days after submission
  • It can only be used for leisure or tourism purposes
  • You cannot use this visa to work or to apply for work
  • You can take your dependents and children along
