Q & A on Temporary Residence Visa

Feb 28, 2018Immigration, News

What are visitors and why do they need a visa to enter Canada?

Visitors are persons who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada, and are legally authorized to enter Canada to visit Canada on holiday (vacation), visit family, and conduct business, etc.

With a valid Temporary Resident Visa, are you permitted to return to your country and then re-enter Canada?

Immigration Canada only issues multiple-entry visas. A multiple-entry visa allows the foreign national to enter Canada and exit multiple times. However, in the past immigration Canada also issued single entry visa’s which did not permit individuals to re-enter Canada.

Will a return ticket or flight itinerary while applying for a Temporary Resident Visa guarantee my visa approval?

Not necessarily, but a flight itinerary is required when applying for a Temporary Resident Visa. Providing a return ticket to your country assures the Immigration that you are a visitor and your intention is to leave Canada at the end of your authorized visit.

What are the fees for visa applications?
