Typically, a temporary resident visa is issued for up to 6 months. There are circumstances where visitors stay for longer than a 6-month period which are discussed below.
Some of the most important factors a visa officer will consider in assessing your application are the connections to your home country.
One of the main tests in issuing a temporary resident visa (or visitor visa) is this: Will the applicant return to his or her country once his or her status expires?
In trying to answer this question, the visa officer will first look at your connections to your home country.
If you are employed, this is a powerful connection to your home country. If you can, be sure to include a letter of employment and confirmation in that letter that your absence to visit Canada has been approved.
If you have family in your country of residence, that is an important connection.
If you can, provide copies of the bio-data sections of their passports, along with copies of birth certificates to show relationships.
An affidavit is a good idea if you have no documents to prove the relationship. Your family member can swear an affidavit and state their relationship to you.
Owning property in your country of residence is another powerful connection to your country.
If you can, provide copies of titles or other documents that show you own the property, and where the property is located.
Do you have obligations in your home country? Perhaps you care for an elderly parent, or another relative? Or perhaps you are a leader of a community or volunteer group?
Showing evidence of obligations at home will certainly help you show that you will return to your home country after your visit.
Another critical factor you must address in your application, is how you will support yourself in Canada. You must think about how you can provide evidence of this.
How much money do you have available to you while in Canada? IRCC will do a rough calculation of food and accommodation costs to determine if you have enough funds to support yourself.
Provide evidence of cash in your bank, and have traveller’s cheques while crossing the border, don’t rely solely on credit cards, or a visa officer might suspect you don’t have the funds for your trip.
Are there currency restrictions in your home country? Take this into account and find a way to address it.
If you will be staying with friends or family, you won’t need as much cash for your trip. You will however need proof that your host will provide lodging and food.
Be sure to have your host in Canada sign a letter stating that you will be staying with them and that they will provide food and lodging.
The letter should state the amount of time you will be staying with them, and have an address and contact phone number where they can be reached.
The visa officer has to determine if you have the ability to leave Canada after your stay.
Be sure to have booked a return travel ticket to your home country, and that your passport is valid for your entire stay and return trip.
If you don’t have a return ticket because you are unsure when you want to return to your home country, be sure to have enough money to purchase a return ticket to your home country.
