Learn What Your Temporary Visa Options Are in Canada
Every year, thousands of foreigners flock to Canada on a temporary basis to offset the skill scarcity in various industries or to study at Canadian educational institutions or simply to visit all that Canada has to offer. Temporary residence status refers to people who wish to come to Canada to visit, work or study. They are coming to Canada for a temporary period and are therefore considered visitors.
4 Common FAQs About Temporary Residency in Canada
1. What is a temporary resident visa?
Canadian citizens and Canadian permanent residents have the right to enter Canada freely. Other visitors to Canada, including tourists, students, and workers, may need a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada.
2. Does everyone planning to visit Canada require a visa?
No. You do not need a Temporary Resident Visa to visit Canada if you are from a visa-exempt country. Citizens from all other countries must apply for a TRP before entering Canada.
3. Do I need a study visa if I plan to study in Canada?
Not always. If your studies will last less than 6 months in Canada, then a Study Permit is usually not required. Any studies that extend longer than 6 months will typically require a Study Permit.
4. How do I qualify for a work permit to work in Canada?
There are many ways to qualify for a Canadian work permit. In some situations, the Canadian employer must demonstrate that they were unable to find Canadian citizens or Canadian permanent residents to fill the position. Side Note: Whether you wish to visit, study or work in Canada, you must satisfy a visa officer that your intention in coming to Canada is temporary and that you will leave upon the expiry of your visitor status. In many cases, this means that you should show sufficient ties to your home country and that you are able to financially support yourself during your visit.
