Would you like to visit Canada? Great idea! Canada welcomes more than 35 million temporary residents (non-immigrants) each year.
Depending on your country of citizenship, you may need a Temporary Residence Visa (TRV), or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to be able to enter Canada. Unless you are a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or an Indigenous person, you will require permission to enter Canada.
Visitor Visa, parents/grandparents Super Visa
Similarly, if you want to invite your parents or grandparents to Canada, they may need to apply for super visa, which is also a type of TRV for which only parents and grandparents are eligible.
A TRV (commonly referred to as visa) is a document issued by a Canadian Immigration Visa Office outside Canada. This document means that, at the time of applying for the TRV, the holder satisfied the requirements for admission to Canada as a visitor. TRVs may be for single entry or multiple entry.
As a general rule, the holder of a regular TRV is admitted to Canada for a period of six months. Parents and grandparents who hold Super visa are admitted for two years. A TRV holder who needs to stay longer in Canada may apply for an extensions of stay from within Canada.
It is important to note that a valid TRV is only an authorization for someone to embark on a vessel and present oneself to a Port of Entry (POE). It is there an immigration Officer will make the final decision to admit the visitor into Canada. Immigration officers at a Port of Entry can deny admission to anyone who, in their opinion, do not intend to leave Canada at the expiry of their visitor status.
