Visiting Canada

Every year, over 30 million people visit Canada on various purposes. They are not immigrants. They come to Canada for temporary stay on a visa that is called the Temporary Resident Visa (TRV).

Everybody except Canadian citizens and permanent residents, require an electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to come to Canada. While some come as tourists, some come for business purposes, meeting their loved ones in Canada, etc. Except for Canadian citizens and permanent residents, everybody else need a legal visitor document to enter a Canadian port of entry. The only exemption to this are citizens of the USA. US citizens do not need an eTA or TRV to come to Canada. However, US green card holders do need an eTA to enter Canada.

This is a multi-entry visa valid up to a period of 10 years. To know more about the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa, click here.
