The Visitor Visas allow tourists, business visitors and extended family members the opportunity to travel to Canada and explore the many benefits of the Canadian terrain, reconnect with friends and family, explore many attractions and make precious memories.

With a successful Canadian tourist visa application tourists can partake of awe-inspiring landscapes, numerous festivals, professional networking events, year-round attractions and simplified processing of visa applications. It’s no wonder that Canada welcomes millions of visitors each year.

 

Tourist Visitor Visa Basic Requirements

Applicants from designated countries are required to obtain a Temporary Resident visa (TRV) prior to their arrival to Canada. Applicants not from a visa-exempt country seeking to visit Canada for tourism can apply for a Tourist visa.

Currently, nationals from certain countries do not require a Visitor visa to visit Canada. Other conditions for eligibility also apply. All visitors must possess a valid passport, have sufficient funds for the duration of their intended stay, respect the terms of their entry to Canada, and ensure that they are criminally and medically admissible to enter Canada. Some visitors may be required to undergo a medical examination. Finally, having a letter of invitation from a Canadian friend or relative can be useful.
