Canada Visitor Visa
Before Coming To Canada
- Must be healthy (you may need a doctor's examination);
- Must respect Canadian laws;
- Will need a valid passport, proof of who you are or other travel documents; and
- Will need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) if you are from one of these countries.
Once you arrive as a visitor an officer from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will ask you a few short questions. To make this go quickly, keep your passport with you and not in your luggage.
The officer will stamp your passport to tell you how long you may stay in Canada. Feel free to ask questions if you are unsure about anything.
After you arrive, you may want to change the conditions of your visit. This is possible in special cases. You must do this before your visa runs out. Apply to extend your stay or visit three weeks before your visa expires.
