Types Of Visas

Temporary Resident/Visitor Visas

For people who want to visit Canada on a temporary basis, and who do not intend to work in Canada or take up normal residence in Canada. A Temporary Resident Visa is also known as a visitor visa. The main determining factor as to whether you require a Temporary Resident Visa before travelling to Canada, is nationality. If you are a citizen of a country that Canada has exempted from the Temporary Resident Visa requirement, you must instead obtain an eTA(electronic Travel Authorization) before travelling to Canada by air (if travelling over land, visa-exempt individuals may obtain approval to enter Canada on a temporary basis at the Canadian border).

Super Visa

A Super Visa in Canada allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to visit Canada for extended periods. As of June 18, 2018 the guidance for Super Visa holders has been updated to reflect that each entry to Canada should be for duration of up to two years and extensions should be for one year. Super Visa holders cannot work in Canada.

Study Permit

It is a document issued to people who wish to enroll in a study program at a post secondary level in Canada for a period longer than six months. To obtain a study permit one needs to present a letter of acceptance from a designated learning institution (DLI) and minimum funds. A DLI is an institution approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students. The DLI list is subject to change on an ongoing basis.

Express Entry

Express Entry is an application management system used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to manage and process applications received through three of Canada’s federal economic immigration programs for skilled workers. It is a competitive immigration system, ranking all eligible candidates against one another and then inviting the best ranking candidates to apply for Canadian permanent resident status. Candidates are ranked against one another based on their age, education, language proficiency, work experience, and other factors.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)

These are the fastest-growing economic Canadian immigration pathway. Over recent years, the federal government has gradually increased provinces’ annual allocations for their respective PNPs, showing the increasing importance of these programs within the overall Canadian immigration landscape.
