The Difference between Business People and Business Visitors

Business People vs. Business Visitors

A lot of times, terminologies in the field of immigration may be confusing to many foreign nationals. For example, temporary resident visa vs. temporary resident permit and business visitors vs. business people. It is important for applicants to understand what those terms refer to and the major difference between the terms. If you do not have a solid understanding of the immigration terminologies, you can potentially make mistakes on your applicant or even submit the wrong application. Both business visitors and business people are temporary residents coming to Canada on business related activity. The main difference between the two is the length of time they will spend in Canada respectively. In this blog, you will learn about the difference between a business visitor and a business person.

What are Business People

Business people are individuals who come to Canada to do business under a free trade agreement.

It is also important to understand that business people, who are coming to Canada under a free trade agreement (FTA), can qualify in any of 4 specific categories of business person. The categories are professionals, intra-company transferees, traders and investors, and business visitors. If you are coming to Canada as a business visitor, you still need to meet the eligibility requirements of the category you intend to apply for, and must comply with the obligations of the FTA you are permitted to apply under.
