A visitor or tourist visa, more accurately called a temporary resident visa, is the entry document which allows visitors to come to Canada if they are not from a visa-exempt country. If your passport alone does not allow you enter Canada, you will require a temporary resident visa. Reasons for applying for a temporary resident visa include: vacation; visiting friends or family in Canada; transiting through an airport to another country.
Who is eligible for a Visitor Visa:
There must be a purpose for entering Canada. Travellers to Canada often are invited by friends or family, or have a pre-planned agenda to tour certain cities, and have sufficient funding for their trip. Each person will have their own reasons to visit Canada, and HRI is here to help you build your case.
