Visitor Visa

In order to visit, fly to, or pass through a Canadian airport, most travellers must apply for a visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA). Canada has a variety of visas that allow you to come to visit friends and family for a holiday as well as certain special visas that allow other things such as short-term study or business to take place.

If you are inviting friends or family members to visit, review the list of countries whose citizens need a visa. A visitor can stay up to six months on each entry and can apply to extend his or her stay.
