What is a visitor’s visa in Canada?
A visitor’s visa in Canada is a travel document given to foreign visitors in order to be able to enter Canada. It works the same way an electronic travel authorization (eTA) does, it lets the immigration officer know that you abide by all requirements needed to enter the country. Nonetheless, it does not guarantee it, as the immigration officer will also consider other factors such as the amount of money you bring for your stay in order to support yourself (for hotel expenses, plane tickets, food, recreation, etc.). The need for a visitor visa depends on the individual’s nationality, method of travel and the travel document that will be used.
