Visit your family

Visitor Visas are temporary visas with the primary aim of facilitating visits to Canada for a variety of purposes, such as family gatherings or tourism. These visas do not offer a pathway to obtaining permanent residency in Canada. Visitors are expected to exit Canada before the expiration of their visa and are required to adhere to the stipulated visa conditions, which include refraining from unauthorized work or study activities.

  1. Visitor Visa (Temporary Resident Visa - TRV): A Visitor Visa, often referred to as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), is an official document that permits foreign nationals to travel to Canada for short-term purposes like tourism, family visits, business meetings, or similar reasons. Typically, it is granted for a period of up to six months, with potential extensions available in certain cases. Visitor Visa holders are not authorized to engage in work or study activities within Canada.
  2. Super Visa: The Super Visa represents a specialized visa category specifically designed for the parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents. This visa enables them to visit their family members in Canada for an extended duration, allowing stays of up to five years per entry, with the potential for further extensions. Super Visa holders can also apply for multiple entries, facilitating more extended and convenient visits to their loved ones in Canada. To qualify for a Super Visa, applicants must meet specific financial and other requirements, and their Canadian relatives must provide sponsorship and meet income criteria.
