How To Apply for a Canadian Tourist Visa
Do you want to be a tourist in Canada? Canada is a hotspot for many vacationers from around the globe. There are many different things to do in Canada, and thousands of visitors come to our country every year.
Applying for a Canadian Tourist Visa
People who are from specific countries (called visitor exempt countries) simply need their valid passport to come and visit Canada.
However, those who are from countries that require visas will have to obtain a tourist visa, also called a temporary resident visa for Canada.
Requirements for a Canadian Tourist Visa
There are specific requirements you need to meet if you want to apply for a tourist visa in Canada. These requirements include:
- You must leave Canada after your visit.
- You are financially stable enough to support yourself and any family members who are with you when you visit Canada.
- You are only visiting Canada and will not work or study.
- You must follow the law and may have to submit a Police Certificate.
- You cannot be a security threat.
- You need to be in good health and not have a medical issue that poses a threat to others. If necessary, you might need to have a medical exam conducted.
If you meet all of the above requirements for a tourist visa in Canada, you will have to prove this via your supporting documentation.
How to Apply for a Tourist Visa for Canada
You will need to obtain a temporary resident visa application kit. After obtaining your kit, ensure that you read the application form completely and that you understand all of the instructions. You need to follow these instructions exactly – if you miss anything when you apply or you make a mistake, your application will be denied or returned to you.
Complete the form and ensure all of the supporting documentation that is required for a tourist visa in Canada is attached in your application.
You will have to pay the fee for your tourist visa, as well as include the receipt for this fee in your application package.
Please note that your application fee for the tourist visa is non-refundable, even if it is denied or refused.
