Looking to break away from your routine and experience Canada's beauty and charm? The Canadian tourist visa is your golden ticket! Whether you want to reconnect with loved ones, hike the rugged Canadian terrain, or indulge in Canadian hospitality, this visa has you covered. With the freedom to stay for up to 6 months, you'll have ample time to create unforgettable memories and brag about how you were nearly outsmarted by a friendly Canadian beaver's clever tactics. Just remember, no working or doing business allowed - unless you're a professional ice hockey player looking to join a local team. And if you're having too much fun to leave, don't sweat it! You can always apply for an extension and keep the adventure going.
When you visit Canada, you can stay for up to 6 months! But don't get too comfy, the immigration border services might kick you out sooner or let you stay a bit longer. They'll even mark your passport with the date you need to leave, so you don't miss your flight to Tim Hortons. If you're lucky, the immigration officer might even give you a fancy document called a visitor record. It's like a backstage pass for Canada, except it shows the date you need to leave by. So, come on over and soak in some Canadian kindness, just don't overstay your welcome!
If you're having too much fun to leave when your visitor visa expires, don't panic! You can apply for a Restoration of Status and keep the good times rolling. Just make sure to apply within 90 days of your visa's expiration date or else you'll have to say "sorry" to your Canadian friends and leave the country. Remember, Canada is always happy to have visitors, but we also want to make sure everyone is there legally. So, if you need to stay longer, just follow the rules and apply for that restoration. And if you do end up leaving, don't worry, we'll keep the poutine hot and the maple syrup flowing for your next visit!
So, you're loving your time in Canada and want to extend your stay? Well, you're in luck, my friend! Here are the requirements you need to meet to extend your Canada visitor visa
First things first, you need to be in Canada already. Sorry, you can't extend your stay from the comfort of your own home.
You'll need a passport that's valid for the entire duration of your extended stay. No expired passports allowed - unless you're looking for an excuse to stay in Canada forever (just kidding, don't do that).
Of course, there's a fee involved. Make sure to get your hands on Form IMM 5708 and pay the associated fee.
And last but not least, make sure any other permits you have, like a study or work permit, won't interfere with your extended visitor permit. We don't want you accidentally starting a new career in Canada without proper documentation
