Visitor Visa

Every year, Canada welcomes over 35 million transitory residents (non-migrants). People who wish to enter Canada for a limited time, such as tourists, transitory remote specialists (work licences), and universal understudies (consider grants), must apply for and be granted a Temporary Resident Visa unless they are citizens of a visa-free country (TRV).


The TRV is a document issued by a Canadian Immigration Visa Office outside of Canada that certifies that the holder has met the requirements for visitor entry to Canada.
