Need Help with Tourist Visa to Canada?

By Michael Niren May 4, 2013 (Updated December 7, 2020) 1 min. read
Tourist Visa to Canada

Wishing to visit friends, family or just travel and tour our provinces and cities? Well, in order to visit Canada as a tourist you will need a Temporary Resident Visa. The first step is determining your eligibility.

You must apply for visitor visa at the appropriate embassy near you. Along with your application you must provide a valid passport that will not expire during your time here.

Understanding the Canadian Tourist Visa

You must satisfy the immigration officer that you will return to your home country when your stay in Canada is up. Therefore, you will have to:

  1. Prove your ties back home to things such as your job and family
  2. Have proof of sufficient funds during your stay here

Our staff here at Niren and Associates are equipped to determine your eligibility.

Why Would I Not Be Able To Apply For My Tourist Visa into Canada?

You may not be able to come to Canada if you have committed a crime or have been involved in a human rights crime. These issues and others can make you inadmissible into Canada and can therefore prevent you from entering Canada.

Please note that if you are travelling through Canada but your stay here will be less than 48 hours then you will need to apply for a transit visa. Some countries may be exempt to this. Please contact our office for more information.

A tourist visa does not allow you to work study or permanently live in Canada.

After your application is submitted it will then be reviewed by a visa officer. He or she will decide to conduct an interview with you however you will be notified of the time and date.

NOTE: If an officer finds that your circumstances have changed or that you provided false information on your application, your approved visa may not guarantee that you will be allowed to enter Canada.

Need help?

It is crucial that your application has the above mentioned information. A consultation with our firm will inform you of how we can strengthen your visitor visa application in order to achieve the best results.

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Applying for my E2 Visa was so overwhelming for me. As soon as I engaged VisaPlace all that worry and stress was gone. They guided me through the entire process and set me up for success! I would 100% recommend using them for any of your Visa Needs.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Had a great experience working with the people at VisaPlace for a Permanent Residency application! The team I dealt with (Nadia B., Krisztina T., Mansi S.) was extremely knowledgeable, prompt and handled the case with care. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone in need!
