Tourist Visa - Canada

Lively cities, welcoming environs and magnificent nature’s bounty, together make Canada one of the most preferred travel destinations of the world. The maple leaf nation is also known for its business friendly atmosphere and serves as a lucrative place for entrepreneurs and investors all over the globe. Travelers who visit Canada to explore business opportunities or visit the nation as a tourist will need a valid entry pass such as travel visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

Canada tourist visas are of two types:

- Single entry visa
- Multiple entry visa

Both the visas are valid for a fixed period and cannot be used after they expire.

A single entry visa allows the visa holder to enter Canada just once. After the visa holder leaves Canada, except for travelling to the United States and St. Pierre and Miquelon, he or she will need a new visa to enter Canada again. If the tourist is travelling to the United States (including its Territories and Possessions) or St. Pierre and Miquelon, he or she will not need a new visitor visa to return to Canada.

A multiple entry visa allows a visitor to come and go from Canada for six months at a time, without having to reapply each time. The multiple entry visa can be valid for up to 10 years, or one month before the visa holder’s passport expires, whichever happens earlier.
