If you are a citizen of a visa required Country then you need a visitor visa before entering Canada. There are two types: a single-entry visa and a multiple-entry visa.
A visitor visa is a visa which is placed in a foreign national’s passport or travel document, allowing him to travel to Canada once or several times during the validity of the visa.
If your visitor Visa application is refused, there is no formal appeal process. You may only reapply if your situation has changed and you have considerable new information to submit.
In most of the case lack of supporting documentation enforces officer to refuse the application. You may hire a consultant for proper representation.
Most of the time applicants made mistakes on their Visitor Visa applications, which jeopardize the future plan of study, work or live in Canada.
A single entry visa allows one entry only to Canada, during the validity of the visa. A multiple entry visa allows several entries to Canada, during the validity of the visa.
