A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), also referred to as a visitor visa or Canada Tourist visa, is an official document issued by a Canadian visa office that is placed in the applicant’s passport to show that the applicant has met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident (either as a visitor, a student, or a worker).
TRV is usually issued for multiple entry and for 10 years unless the officer feels the purpose of travel is singular and issues a single entry Visa.
In-case where longer stays are required, extension application must be filed for visa at-least 30 days prior to the date mentioned of expiry in the passport.
The Canada Visitor Visa process requires you to meet the following criteria:
- A valid passport with an expiry date that is after six months or more.
- Documents that prove you have enough ties to your home country.
- Financial statements that prove you have enough funds to support your stay in Canada.
- A letter of invitation from your relatives if you are planning to stay with them.
