Hello this is Michael Niren, immigration lawyer and founder of
VisaPlace.com. Some good news that came out of CIC recently: they will be
considering multiple entry visas automatically for all temporary resident
So what that means is that when you apply for a tourist to Canada, you will
automatically be considered for a multiple entry visa. That’s great news.
What happens is that if you are issued a multiple entry visa, you can come
to Canada multiple times or many times during the validity of your visa.
So if your visa is issued for five years, you’ll be able to come back and
forth for a five-year period, unlimited. In the past, they considered you
for a single entry visa, meaning that you can come once and that’s it, and
if you want to come again, you have to apply for a new visa. So this is
very good news. We’re excited about this. And also, the fee for a temporary
resident visa is going to go down to $100 rather than $150.
So, some good news finally coming out of Canada Immigration. However, when
you apply for extensions of these visas, they are saying that they are
going to be increasing the fees by $25 or $5, depending upon the visa. So
that’s unfortunate; however, when you do apply for a tourist visa, you will
be automatically considered for a multiple entry visa.
