  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 and experience of an immigration professional is so critical.

A Canadian Visitor Visa is for an individual who wants to come to Canada, whether it be to vacation and explore our vast ranging wilderness, ski our world class mountains, or to  simply visit family or friends. One may even want to make a business exploratory visit to seek investment opportunities in Canada.

What to ask a licensed Canadian immigration professional about visitor visas?

With over 30 years of accumulated experience, one thing that we’ve noticed over the years is that many Canadian Visitor Visas are rejected because the right questions were not addressed.

Here are some very important questions you want to ask any person you are planning on hiring to help you with your Canadian Visitor visa application:

  • How long will it take to process a visitor visa from my country of origin?
  • How do I know if I need a visa and am not from a visa exempt country?
  • What are the requirements for a visitor visa application and supporting documentation that you must provide?
  • If you are travelling with family, you may also want to know what are the requirements that your family must meet?

The immigration professional should have no problems answer those important questions for you.

“Hi, I got my Canadian Visa from the first submission and for 4 years through the marvelous assistance and guidance of My Visa Source and I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family who wish to visit Canada. Thank you very much, indeed!” 5-Green-Star-Review 5 out of 5 » Rating by: Sufian K.

Our experience with My Visa Source has been fantastic. Our parents had their visitor visa rejected few times and we wanted to hire someone efficient this time to do their file in Canada. Our parents used consultants in India and all of them seemed very unorganized and uninformed. Our friends referred us to many different immigration services but we did our own research and My Visa Source seemed to have amazing reviews. My husband then called to inquire about their services. The call was answered by Sunny and he patiently answered all our questions and asked us to send him some documents to review first. We were extremely pleased by the services he provided before signing the contract. Our file was then taken care by Carlos and his customer service was exceptional. There was a team that worked on our file and all of them were extremely helpful and professional. Please note: we have never met anyone from their office in person. Everything was taken care via phone or email. You want to hire someone that goes the extra mile to help you and assist you at every step. Thanks My Visa Source once again.” 5-Green-Star-Review5 out of 5 » Rating by: Shweta T.
