The Documents Required For a Successful Canadian Visitors Visa Application

A visitor visa, also referred to as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), is an immigration document that allows foreign nationals to travel to and enter Canada.There are two types of Canadian visitor visas: single entry visas and multiple entry visas. A single entry visa allows foreign nationals to enter Canada for one-time only. A multiple entry visa allows holders to enter and leave Canada as often as they want as long as the visa is valid. You don’t need to choose which kind to apply for, applicants are automatically considered for multiple entry visas and are only issued single entry visas under unique circumstances.

8. Important Supporting Documents

In fact, based on my experience as a travel consultant, I would say that the sets of supporting documents that an applicant presents are what determines the successful outcome of their visa application to Canada and not the visa application form, family information and the other forms that most applicants download online.
