Get a visitor visa

A Canadian visitor visa, also known as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), is an official document issued by the Canadian government that allows foreign nationals to enter Canada for temporary purposes, such as tourism, visiting family or friends, or attending business meetings or conferences. The visitor visa may be single-entry, allowing for a one-time entry into Canada, or multiple-entry, permitting multiple entries within the visa’s validity period. Visitors to Canada can typically stay for up to six months from the date of their initial entry.

While holding a visitor visa is an important step, it does not guarantee entry to Canada. The final decision regarding the entry of visa holders is made by border services officers at the port of entry. They assess the information provided to them at the time of entry to determine whether to allow or deny entry to Canada. Their decision is based on various factors and considerations.
