TEMPORARY RESIDENT VISA

You must meet the admissible requirements to enter Canada, stay in the country and obtain a work permit. A temporary worker visa does not allow you to permanently reside in Canada. Your dependent children, spouse or common-law partner are eligible to accompany you to Canada, and, if they wish, they can apply for a job or study visa.

Temporary residents are permitted to enter and remain in Canada for a specific period if they have a valid passport and a temporary resident visa (TRV) and must leave by the end of the period authorized for their stay. They may re-enter Canada only if they authorized to do so.

People don’t need a new visitor visa to return to Canada if they are travelling directly to the United States (including its Territories and Possessions) or St. Pierre and Miquelon.

THERE ARE FOUR TYPES OF TRVs

Super visa

Parent and grandparent super visa are different from a multiple entry visa. With the parent and grandparent super visa, eligible parents and grandparents can visit family in Canada for up to two years without the need to renew their status. The Super Visa is a multi-entry visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years. The key difference is that the Super Visa allows an individual to stay for up to two years at a time in Canada, while a 10-year multiple entry visa would only have a status period for each entry of six months only.

Multiple-entry visa

A multiple entry visa will let you travel to Canada for six months at a time as many times as you want. It will be valid for up to 10 years or one month before your passport expires, whichever is shorter.

Single entry visa

A single-entry visa lets you travel to Canada only one time. In most cases, once you have left Canada, you will need a new visa to enter Canada again.

Transit visa

A transit visa is an official document which shows that you meet the requirements to transit for up to 48 hours through a Canadian airport. It can be valid for 1 or 2 entries, depending on your travel plans. You must use your transit visa before it expires.

BUSINESS VISITOR

Canada, an economically flourishing country, offers immense opportunities to business visitors. Under the Business Visitor visa category, foreign nationals may visit Canada for short periods to partake in business dealings with Canadian companies.

The eligible applicants are permitted to explore business opportunities, interact with Canadian business counterparts, and participate in trade conferences. However, this visa does not allow applicants to assume employment in Canada. Business Visitor visa is best suited for travellers intending to experience Canadian culture, tour sites, and enjoy leisure activities while exploring various business options.

If you want to visit Canada for business purpose, you can apply as a business visitor.  You’re eligible as a business visitor if you come to take part in international business activities without being part of the Canadian labour market.  If you are visiting Canada temporarily to grow or invest or advance your business relationships, you can apply through business visitor. If you plan to stay for more than 6 months, or plan to work in Canada, you may be considered a temporary worker and have to apply for a work permit.

The types of activities you may conduct as a business visitor include:

  • buying Canadian goods or services for a foreign business or government
  • taking orders for goods or services
  • going to meetings, conferences, conventions or trade fairs
  • giving after-sales service (managing, not doing hands-on labour)
  • being trained by a Canadian parent company that you work for outside Canada
  • training employees of a Canadian branch of a foreign company

A post-graduation work permit may be issued based on the length of the study program for a minimum of 8 months up to a maximum of 3 years.

Canadian Free Trade Agreement

A foreign national may be issued a work permit without an LMIA to perform work in Canada pursuant to an international agreement between Canada and one or more countries. Among the international agreements to which Canada is a signatory are the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the General Agreement on Trade in Service (GATS), the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement, the Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement, and the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.

Thanks to the CFTA, construction companies, electrical contractors, architecture firms and advertising companies are just a few of the service providers that will have broader and easier access to government contracts from coast to coast. Canadian companies already trade with each other, and trade between provinces and territories is worth at least $385 billion every year. The CFTA will benefit firms across the Canadian economy, expanding choice and helping to boost growth. Governments will work together to align regulatory requirements, reduce duplicate paperwork and improve access to customers across the country.
