Canada Visitor Visa

Whether you want to visit Canada for business purposes, tourist purposes, or to visit your family, apply for a Canadian visitor visa and get to stay in Canada for up to 6 months! The Visitor Visa is also known as the Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) and since it’s a temporary visa, its validity period is 10 years. 

It’s a multiple entry visa, which means you can enter Canada multiple times on the same visa but you must not stay in the country for more than 6 months or as the border services officer allows. Once you arrive in Canada on a visitor visa, you will go through an identity check, security clearance, and health assessment.
