Canada tops the wish list of must see countries for millions of people. As per Government statistics, over a million visitor visas are issued every year with China & India being issued almost 500,000 of them. Let’s look at some frequently asked questions about Canadian Temporary Resident Visa / Visitor Visas:
Do I need a Visa to Visit Canada?
Most travellers need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to visit Canada. This requirement is dependent on your nationality, the country that issued your travel document and how you will travel to Canada.
What is a single entry and multiple entry visa?
A single-entry visa allows entry to Canada only once for a specific period. In most cases, once you have left Canada after entry with a single-entry visa, you will need a new visa to enter Canada.
A multiple entry visa allows entry many times, for up to six months at a time and may usually be valid for up to 10 years or one month before your passport is due to expire.
All applicants who are eligible for a multiple entry visa will be issued one, at the discretion of a visa officer.
What documents are required to apply for a Visitor Visa to visit Canada?
Forms mentioned in the CIC website, photos, valid passport, proof of financial support, ties to home country and in certain cases proof of good health (may require medical exam).

How do I get help if my visa application is refused?
There is no formal appeal process if your application for a temporary resident visa has been rejected. We wish to highlight the fact that the Temporary Resident Visa application process is a tedious one requesting for ample family and personal information, along with numerous documents to support the application, and It is vital to prepare a strong application at the outset.
Due to the complex procedures involved, many individuals do not understand the formalities thus resulting in refusal of an application when they do it themselves. Once refused, the ensuing application must be solid and convincing for chances of an approval.
Few of the reasons for rejection of a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) are lack of travel history, lack of financial support, criminality, misrepresentation and medical inadmissibility.
