Canada Tourist or Visit Visa – Sector A
1.Do I need a visa to visit Canada?
Depending on your citizenship, you may. People traveling on passports from certain countries and territories need a temporary resident visa (commonly known as a visitor visa) to travel to Canada.
2.what is the difference between a single and a multiple entry visa?
A multiple entry visa allows visitors to come and go from Canada for six months at a time, without having to reapply each time. It can be valid for up to 10 years, or one month before your passport expires, whichever is earlier. You must arrive in Canada on or before the expiry date on your visa.
A single entry visa allows you to come to Canada only one time. Once you have left Canada, excluding travel to the United States and St. Pierre and Miquelon, you will need a new visa to travel back to and enter Canada.
3.How do I help a family member or friend apply to visit Canada?
Anyone who visits Canada from a temporary resident visa-required country must initially apply from outside the country. Your friend or family member must apply to the Canadian visa office responsible for his or her country or region. A visa officer will review the application and decide whether to issue a visa.
4.I have U.S. residency (Green Card). Do I need a visa to visit Canada or can I use my Green Card?
As a U.S. Green Card holder, you do not need a temporary resident visa to travel to Canada. At the Canadian border, you will need to present your valid passport and Green Card.
5.How do I get a transit visa?
You can apply for a transit visa by filling out the application for a Temporary Resident Visa and selecting transit visa from the list of options on the form.
