New 10 Year Multiple Entry Visas
According to Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney, a new, easier way to travel to Canada is coming soon with the 10-year multiple entry visa.
“More applications and higher expectations mean that Citizenship and Immigration Canada needs a more responsive and flexible processing system,” said Minister Kenney. “To achieve that, the department is providing applicants and staff with the right tools to deliver on those expectations,” he said.
Some 10-year Multiple Entry Visas Already Given Out
The 10-year multiple entry visas have already been handed out to some people who have immigration applications in the works, such as parents and grandparents. In all cases, the visas will be given to travelers who are considered low-risk, but are from countries whose residents require a visa to come to Canada.
Currently, multiple entry visas are valid for five years but as more countries begin issuing passports that are valid for 10 years, 10-year multiple entry visas are becoming more necessary.
Multiple entry visas are temporary resident visas, which come in either single-entry visas or multiple entry visas. Single entry visa holders can only enter Canada once, although they can also travel to the United States with a few conditions. If they leave Canada, they will have to apply for a new visa.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
