Visitor Visa

Visitor Visa

Canada is one of the hardest countries in the world to obtain a visa for. Based on the country corruption  index and economic situation, you may need either a temporary resident visa or an electronic travel authorization (e-TA). Usually, Europeans and North Americans need only an e-ta to come.
As for other countries – they need to prove, that they will come back to their countries after they visit Canada – that is called VISA.

Visitor Visa (Temporary Resident Visa (TRV)) & eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization)

TRV or visitor Visa is a issued for travelers who intend to come to Canada to visit family and friends, for tourism purposes and holidays, or any other visit that is not related to work, study, or immigration in general.

TRV will require the applicant to submit an application to IRCC (Immigration Refuges and Citizenship Canada).

Even though the process of getting visa is described as easy as one, two, three – its far from it. First of all, you have to keep in mind, that the purpose of visa is to check your eligibility to come to Canada. What does Canada mean under this word? You have to CONVINCE the officer, that you are worth to be issued an entry visa, more than that, it is indicated on Canadian official website that having a Canadian visa its not your right – it is a PRIVILEGE. That being said, you have to earn this privilege. When an applicant is applying for a visa, he/she undergoes through multiple screening questions: 

Super Visa

Super visa is a type of visitor visa issued ONLY for parents and grandparents.

It allows the parents/ grandparents to stay in Canada for 2 consecutive years.

eTA – is a simple process compared to visa issuance. It is issued to citizens of visa exempt countries. The applicant only needs to fill out a request online, eTA applications does not require extensive background checks and long processing time as TRVs.

The applicant can visit Canada multiple times as long as the TRV or eTA is valid. But each visit must not be longer than 6 months. The applicant can apply for extension to extend his/her stay
