The Government of Canada has different rules regarding the Visitor Visa. Depending on your country of Citizenship, the process might differ. 

Process #1

  • If you are a Citizen of the United States of America, you are exempt from applying for a Visitor visa.

Process #2

If you are citizen of one of these countries: 

  • If you are from Andorra, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, British citizen, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Samoa, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Permanent Resident of the USA or Vatican City State:

You are exempt from applying for a visitor visa, but you will have to apply for an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization). An eTA is an online form that needs to be complete by the applicant before coming to Canada. It generally takes a few minutes to get approved if you are not inadmissible for any reason.​

Process #3:

If you are not from the list of eTA countries and the United-States, you will need a visitor visa to travel to Canada.

Unfortunately, getting a visitor visa can be extremely challenging as immigration Officers have a lot of discretion to refuse your application. 

Visitor Visa Process:

  • Create an account on the IRCC website. 

  • Respond to an online form from the Government of Canada. 

  • Submit the documents required to support your application.

  • Pay the processing and biometric fees.

  • Give your Biometrics to the closest visa-office in your home country. 

  • If admissible, receive your Visitor Visa from the Government of Canada.

Tip to be successful: submit as many documents as possible to prove that you will leave Canada by the end of authorized stay.
