Visitor Visa

A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), also referred to as a visitor visa or Canada Tourist visa, is an official document issued by a Canadian visa office that is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident (either as a visitor, a student, or a worker).

Eligibility requirements

All applicants wishing to visit Canada must satisfy an officer that they will leave Canada by the end of the period authorized for the stay, that they will not contravene the conditions of admission (for example, that they will not study or work without prior government authorization), and that they do not belong in a category of persons inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

In reaching a decision, an officer considers several factors, which may include:

  • The applicant's travel and identity documents;
  • The reasons for travelling to Canada and the applicant's contacts there;
  • The applicant's financial means for the trip;
  • The applicant's ties to his or her country of residence, including immigration status, employment, and family ties
  • The applicant would be likely to leave Canada at the end of the authorized stay.
