Canada is home to millions of visitors each year. In fact, more than 35 million people visit Canada every year to enjoy the many opportunities the country has to offer, including visiting family and friends. If you wish to visit to Canada for a temporary purpose like a vacation, or to visit family or friends, you may need a Temporary Resident Visa, unless you are a citizen from a “visa exempt” country like the USA or Australia

The Canada visit visa is granted for a period of six months and are either single entry or multiple entry visas. A single-entry visitor visa allows the holder to enter Canada once. If the holder leaves Canada and wants to come back, they will have to apply for another one – except if they are traveling to the United States. The single-entry visitor’s visa is only valid for six months.

A multiple entry visa allows the holder to leave and re-enter Canada several times during the length of their visa’s validity. The multiple entry visitor’s visa is valid for a longer period than a single-entry visa. Each visa can be different, and the number of times you can enter Canada will be stated on the visa.

Business Visitor

A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada for international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labor market. For example, someone who comes to Canada to meet people from companies doing business with their country, to observe site visits, a Canadian company invited them for training in product use, sales, or other business transaction functions.

Business visitors usually stay in Canada for a few days or a few weeks but are able to stay for up to six months. Business visitors do not need a work permit; however, business visitors who need a visa or an electronic travel authorization (eTA) must apply for one. In addition, business visitors must prove that their main source of income and their main place of business are outside Canada.
