Business Visas

Business Visas

Business visitors can obtain a visitor visa if they come to Canada to engage in international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labour market. For instance a business visitor may attend business meetings or perform site visits (to observe only) or receive some training. Business visitors should be able to prove that their main source of income and their main place of business are outside Canada.

General requirements for a Visitor Visa:

  • a valid travel document, such as a passport
  • be in good health
  • satisfy an immigration officer that you have ties, such as a job, home and family, that has compelling reason to return to your country of origin
  • satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit
  • have enough funds to support yourself, which depends on length of  your stay and whether you will stay in a hotel or with friends or relatives

You may also need:

  • a medical examination and
  • a letter of invitation from someone residing in Canada if applicable

In addition, Visitors should not have a criminal record or pose a security risk, should be in good health, and should have sufficient funds to support themselves during their stay in Canada.

Don’t risk the refusal of your application by just filling forms without knowledge of the law, The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Immigration Regulations. Once an application is refused, a permanent record is created, Seek professional help!
