Visitor Visa

Canada is among the popular tourist destinations with beautiful landscapes and snowy scenery. No matter, what season of the year it is, there is also a rush of foreign visitors. If you are also planning to go on a vacation to Canada or want to visit your relatives or friends residing over there, you need to apply for a visitor visa. Though visitor or temporary visa is a necessity to visit the country, US & Australian citizens are exempted from it.

How To Get A Visitor Visa?

At Arish Immigration, we are proudly assisting the non-resident Canadians to get a visitor visa so that they can discover the country and roam anywhere they want. According to the Canadian Immigration Act, a visitor visa is necessary to allow a foreign resident to enter the country for the purpose of trade & tourism. It doesn’t permit an individual to work over there.

Visitor Visa Refusal/ Reapplication

Did you filed a visitor visa recently only to receive a refusal in the end? If yes, don’t worry, Arish immigration is here to take away all your worries by filing a visa reapplication. After working hard in collecting, compiling and submitting a visitor visa application, and still getting it refused by the immigration office is really a frustrating and disappointing experience. Many applicants are unable to find out the reason for which their visitor application has been refused as all the documents are submitted duly tested. The common reason behind a refusal is that the immigration wasn’t satisfied with all the stuff you provided. Just submitting a visitor visa application doesn’t guarantee success. Make sure you fulfill the minimum requirements to have your application assessed by a visa officer.

Pre-requisites To Apply For A Tourist Visa

If you are planning to reapply as a tourist who wants to explore Canada for leisure, sight-seeing, or other fun-filled purposes, you must:
  • Have a valid travel document, such as a passport,
  • Be in good health and financial condition,
  • Have no criminal or immigration related convictions,
  • Convince an immigration officer that you have ties such as a job, home, financial assets or family back in your home country,
  • Convince an immigration officer that you’ll leave Canada at the end of your visit,
  • Have enough money and resources to manage your and your family’s stay.
Once you approach us, we’ll assess the merits of your case and will provide a list of documents to be attached as required by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada to strengthen your application and maximize the chances of success.
