A visitor visa or a TRV allows you to travel to Canada to visit friends and family, and for other temporary purposes. Citizens from some countries require a visitor visa prior to travelling to Canada, and some are visa-exempt. Citizens from visa-exempt countries must obtain an electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to enter Canada by air. The only exception is for US citizens who do not need visitor visas or an eTA to enter Canada.
What kind of visa do you need?
A single entry visa gives you entry to Canada only once prior to expiry, and with a multiple entry visa, you can enter many times within the period given. Whether you have a single or multiple visa, you can only stay in Canada for up to 6 months at a time. If you wish to stay longer than 6 months, you must apply to extend your stay.
Parents and grandparents can visit family and stay for up to 2 years with the Super Visa, a visa that allows for multiple entries for a period of up to 10 years.
Business visitors enter Canada for business purposes: to explore business opportunities and connect with Canadian businesses.
