Here is a step-by-step guide on how to get a Canada Visitor / Tourist visa:
First, check if you require a tourist visa to enter Canada. Citizens of certain countries are exempt from obtaining a visa and may only need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). You can check the official Government of Canada website to find out if you need a visa or an eTA.
Once you’ve confirmed that you need a tourist visa, gather the necessary documents. Typically, you will need the following:
Once you have gathered all the required documents, submit your application. You can apply online through the official Government of Canada website or submit a paper application to the designated visa application center or consulate in your country. Pay the applicable visa fees at this stage.
Depending on your nationality, you may be required to provide biometric information, including fingerprints and a photograph. If this is the case, you will receive a biometric instruction letter after submitting your application. Schedule an appointment at the nearest visa application center to provide your biometrics.
After submitting your application and biometrics (if required), you will need to wait for the processing to be completed. The processing time can vary depending on the country and the time of year. You can check the estimated processing times on the Government of Canada website.
Once your application is approved, you will receive your passport back with the visa stamped in it. In some cases, you may be required to submit your passport to the visa office for visa issuance. Follow the instructions provided by the visa office regarding the submission and collection of your passport.
With your visa issued, you are now ready to travel to Canada. Make sure to carry all the necessary documents, including your passport with the visa, travel insurance, and proof of accommodation. Upon arrival in Canada, present your documents to the immigration officer at the port of entry.
It’s important to note that the visa application process and requirements may change over time, so it’s recommended to check the official Government of Canada website or consult with the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date information before starting your application.
