Canadian Visitor Visa Tips

When applying for a temporary resident visa, commonly known as a visitor visa, you will need to keep in mind one major concept: the temporary nature of your visit. As you are applying for a temporary document, you will need to satisfy an officer that, if approved, you will leave Canada at the end of your authorized period of stay. Many of our clients get refused based on the fact they did not adequately demonstrate the ties to their home country or did not satisfy an officer that they would leave Canada at the end of their authorized period of stay.

Akrami & Associates will guide you every step of the way with this. Contact us for more details.

If you intend on submitting your application without the support of a representative, there are a couple of factors you should keep in mind.

Apply Separately

Your family members who also wish to visit Canada must apply by filling out their own temporary residence form (Temporary Resident Visa, Study Permit or work permit). However, you may send all family member application forms in the same envelope with only one payment receipt for the total amount.

Your spouse or common-law partner and children must meet all the requirements for temporary residents to Canada.

Medical Requirements

You and your family members may be required to undergo a medical examination in order to come to Canada. This exam will need to be completed by a designated medical practitioner who has been indicated by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

You may either:

  • undergo an upfront medical examination by contacting a Panel Physician; or
  • wait until your application is reviewed and medical instructions are provided to you by the visa office.

Visa Exempt?

Some countries are considered to be visa exempt; these countries are designated by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Before attempting to apply, you should first determine whether or not you will first require a visa.

Note, if you come from a visa exempt country this is not mean that you can stay in Canada indefinitely. Typically you can remain in Canada for up to six months before requiring a status document or being required to exit the country.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.
