- Look for ways to grow your business,
- Invest or
- Advance your business relationships.
3. Does a business visitor need a special visa to enter Canada?
No, there is no separate application for business visitors. The temporary resident visa covers all visitors, including those in Canada on business. See Countries and territories whose citizens require visas in order to enter Canada as visitors to find out whether you must apply for one.
4. If I am a business visitor, do I need a work permit to work in Canada?
You do not need a work permit to carry out business activities related to your job back home, such as meeting clients of your company or visiting job sites. However, if you plan to carry out secretarial, managerial, technical or production activities or stay longer than six months in Canada, you have to apply for a work permit. In both cases, if you are from a country that requires a visa to visit Canada, you must apply for a temporary resident visa.
5. I used a temporary resident visa for a recent business visit to Canada. Can I use it for a holiday in Canada?
If it is a multiple-entry visa and it has not expired, you can use it to enter Canada for both business and tourism. If it is a single-entry visa, you will need a new visa.
