How Does a Canadian Visitor Visas Work?

  1. Single entry visitor visa

The multiple entry visitor visa allows the rightful holder to enter and exit Canada within a valid period as opposed to a single entry where you can only enter once.

Obtaining a Canadian Visitor Visa is often tricky and overlooking even the most minor detail can result in a denied application. It is for this very reason that retaining the expertise of a immigration professional is so critical.
