What is a Temporary Resident Visa?
Citizens of some countries are visa-exempt meaning they do need a visa, find out if you need a visa.
I need a temporary resident visa to visit Canada. I want to study or work in Canada while I am there. Do I need to apply for anything else?
I got a multiple-entry temporary resident visa to visit a relative in Canada last year. Can I use it to travel to Canada on a business trip?
Must I leave Canada by the valid until date on my temporary resident visa?
No. The date on the temporary resident visa is the date by which you must arrive in Canada. The border services officer at the port of entry will decide how long you can stay in Canada. The officer will use one of three ways to note how long you can stay.
- The officer may stamp your passport and write a date under that stamp. If so, you must leave Canada by that date.
- The officer may stamp your passport without writing a date under that stamp. Instead, the officer may give you a visitor record. If so, you must leave Canada by the date shown under “Valid until” on that visitor record.
- The officer may simply stamp your passport without writing a date under that stamp or giving you a visitor record. If so, you can stay in Canada for six months.
What is a business visitor?
Does a business visitor need a special visa to enter Canada?
If I am a business visitor, do I need a work permit to work in Canada?
I am a business visitor and I do not need a visa. What documents should I bring, if any?
You must show to the border services officer several documents when you arrive in Canada. These documents include, but are not limited to:
- a passport or travel document that is valid for your entire stay and guarantees re-entry to your country of origin
- a letter of support from your parent company and a letter of invitation from the Canadian host company
- other documents such as warranty or service agreements, contracts, etc. if relevant to the visit
- 24-hour contact details of your business host in Canada and
- proof that you have enough money for both your stay in Canada and your return home.

I need to calculate family size when applying for the parent and grandparent super visa. Whom should I include?
When applying for a parent and grandparent super visa, include the following people when calculating family size:
- the inviting child or grandchild;
- the spouse of the inviting child or grandchild;
- the dependants of the inviting child or grandchild;
- any other person whom the inviting child or grandchild is currently sponsoring or co-signing for; and
- the parents or grandparents of the inviting child or grandchild who are seeking a parent and grandparent super visa.
Here are some examples.
- The inviting child or grandchild in Canada is not married and has no children. He or she has invited one parent to visit Canada for a two-year stay. The family size is two.
- The inviting family in Canada is a family of four (the inviting child or grandchild, the spouse and two dependent children). They plan to host two visiting parents. The family size is six.
- The inviting family in Canada is a family of three (inviting child or grandchild, the spouse and one dependent child). The inviting child or grandchild previously co-signed the sponsorship of the spouse’s parents (two persons). That sponsorship is still in effect. Now, the inviting child or grandchild has invited both of his or her parents for a long-term visit on a parent and grandparent super visa. The family size is seven.
