VISIT ON BUSINESS
You are a business visitor if you plan to visit Canada temporarily to:
- look for ways to grow your business,
- invest or
- advance your business relationships.
If you are a business visitor and you need a visa to visit Canada, you must apply for a temporary resident visa, just like any other visitor to Canada. There is no separate application for business visitors.
As a business visitor, you must show that:
- you plan to stay for less than six months,
- you do not plan to enter the Canadian labour market,
- your main place of business, and source of income and profits, is outside Canada,
- you have documents that support your application
EXTEND YOUR STAY IN CANADA AS A VISITOR
If you want to extend your stay in Canada, you must apply to do so. Check your temporary resident status to make sure you apply before the expiry date. This will be on your study or work permit, the stamp in your passport or, if you do not have a stamp in your passport, 6 months from the day you entered Canada. You should apply 30 days before your status expires.
Applying for a visa to Canada can seem very easy thing to do, yet often times applicants are refused. The main reason for that is their lack of preparation and poor evidence submissions. Let us help you with your Visa application.
