Canada travel visa
A visitor visa permits travel to Canada:
For leisure, to see family and friends, or tourism
For business or to take part in sports or creative events
For organ donation activities
A visitor visa allows you to travel to and enter Canada during its validity period. It can be a single or a multiple entry visa.
Please note that the validity date is NOT the suggested duration of the visit. At the port of entry, a CBSA officer will determine how long you are permitted to stay in Canada.
Typically, when the officers are satisfied that you are admissible, entry is granted for up to a maximum of six-months
Processing times vary on a case-by-case basis. The average processing time for a visitor visa to Canada varies anywhere from a few days up to 3 months.
If a request for additional documentation is received, this can affect the processing period. In some cases, applicants are required to undergo biometrics or health checks.
