Canadian Immigration services offer Temporary Resident Visa to enable foreign nationals to reside in Canada for a certain time period for either business or pleasure. Foreign nationals, who are residents of certain countries, will not need a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada. For a list of visa-exempt countries, please contact us for more information.
On the other hand, citizens of a majority of other countries will require a Temporary Resident Visa before entering Canada. The spouses of individuals, who are residing in Canada on a temporary basis, may require a Temporary Resident Visa, depending on their country of birth.
The Temporary Resident Visa will not grant work permits for foreign nationals in Canada. The difference between a Work Permit and a Temporary Resident Visa needs to be understood and thought of earlier before choosing the stream of immigration the individual is applying for. A foreign national can enter and live in Canada for a stipulated time with a Short-term Resident Visa and a Work Permit enables employment opportunities in Canada.
A Work Permit must be obtained by citizens of other countries, who would like to work in Canada. A foreign citizen will require an additional Temporary Resident Visa if they are travelling in and out of the country. The visa requirements will vary subject to the foreign national’s country of birth.
