Business Visitor FAQs

Business Visitor FAQs

FAQ’s about being a Business Visitor

Some individuals who travel for business are highly privileged insofar as they do not have to apply for a work permit, or a special visitor visa, to come to Canada to participate in particular business activities. Most individuals who come to Canada to actually work need a work permit. The major difference between a business visitor and an individual who enters Canada to actually work, is that the individual in Canada who “working” is making a salary from a Canadian company and participating in activities which are more than business meetings, research, and some other specified activities which business visitors are permitted to partake in without a work permit. A business visitor on the other hand is one who does not directly work for a Canadian company, but rather is a foreign national who visits Canada to undertake the activities which are related to the international business. So, how does one ensure they are permitted to come to Canada to participate in activities which are work-related, without applying for a work permit first? It requires having a good understanding of what a business visitor is, and the rules regarding business visitors. Therefore, this article will address some common misunderstandings surrounding business visitors.

FAQ’S About Electronic Travel Authorizations (eTA’s)!

Though this regulation was brought in in early 2016, many people are still unfamiliar with the concept of an electronic travel authorization, otherwise known as an eTA. Many individuals would not have had to apply for an eTA if the last time they boarded a plane headed for Canada was before 2016. If this is the case for you, and you’re from a visa exempt country, prior to 2016, you did not have to obtain any special documents to travel to Canada, other than your travel document or passport. Though, you now must obtain an eTA to travel to Canada if you are from a visa-exempt country. If you are from a non-visa exempt country, the requirements for you remain the same; you must have a valid visitor’s visa to enter Canada. So, if an eTA is something you’ll have to think about for your nest trip to Canada, continue reading this article to learn about all the common questions individuals usually want to ask, when applying for an eTA.

Q: Is an eTA just like a Temporary Resident Visa/ Visitor’s Visa?

There are some similarities, and some differences. The biggest similarity is that both authorize you to travel to Canada for a temporary period of time. Though, the application process for an ETA is much different than that of a Visitor Visa. The entire application process for an eTA will take no more than a couple of hours, and you should receive an approval via email within 48 hours of applying, though this is not always the case. A visitor visa application can take several days to complete, and several weeks to receive an approval.
