    Twenty-five million people travel to Canada each year from all over the world. These people may be immigrants or refugees seeking out a new home or refuge away from their countries. A large portion of these people, however, are planning to vacation in the country (with the intention of going home at the end of the trip). 

    If you are planning an extended vacation to Canada to visit family or go sightseeing, you may need to apply for a visitor visa. Continue reading to learn how a Mississauga immigration lawyer can help you with your visitor visa application in Canada.


    What Is a Visitor Visa?

    The Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) is necessary for most people who wish to reside in Canada temporarily. In Canada, immigration laws can get a little confusing, especially if is it your first time applying for a visitor visa. There are several requirements for filing a TRV application, including:


    Having valid travel documents (passport, etc)

    Being in good health overall (medical examination)

    Having enough money for the length of your stay

    An immigration officer will determine whether or not you have a reason to visit Canada, including business, tourism, or family. They will also determine whether or not you have ties to your home country so that you are going to leave Canada when your visitor visa expires. 

    Because a visitor visa only includes temporary residency, you cannot:

    Apply for citizenship

    Obtain Canadian government documentation

    Apply for Canadian healthcare benefits

    Go to work or school (unless otherwise specified in your visa application)

    In general, you are only going to be able to stay for six months in the country. Your visa documentation will have the date by which you have to leave Canada and return to your home country.

    Do You Need a Lawyer for a Visa in Canada?

    In Canada, immigration policies dictate how to apply for a TRV. Not applying properly can cause the termination of your application or it can delay your trip to the country. You don't have to have a lawyer involved to fill out an application. However, because the laws can be confusing, it can be helpful to have a lawyer go through the entire process with you. Your immigration lawyer will be able to:

    Ensure your application is complete for submission

    Track your case and get any additional information

    Defend and protect your rights as a foreign national

    Inform you of your legal responsibilities while in Canada

    An immigration lawyer can also advise you on becoming a permanent resident, applying for a student or work visa, etc.

    Submitting a Visitor Visa Application in Canada
