Frequently Asked Question
Who can apply?
Should I apply for Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) and tourist visa at the same time?
No, it is not necessary to apply for both visitor visa and electronic travel approval. To visit Canada, you’ll require a legitimate visiting visa or an electronic travel approval (eTA). It will be determined by travel document used, the issuing country nationality of applicant and how applicant will travel to Canada.
What should be the duration of stay in Canada for Visitor Visa holders?
The duration of stay in Canada for foreign visitor is up to six months. The border service officer can allow the visitor to stay for more or less than six months, which is finalized based on the stamp on passport. However, if there is no such stamp by the officer than you can stay up to six month or until the Passport Expires whichever comes first. In order to stay more than the allowed time, applicant must raise a request for stay extension, at least 30 days prior the expiration of Visitor Visa duration.
