Everything You Need to Know About Applying for a Temporary Resident Visa in Canada
Applying for a temporary resident visa (TRV) is the first step in the process of obtaining authorization to enter Canada as a student or visitor. A TRV allows you to stay in Canada for a specific period of time and is normally valid for up to six months. If you plan on studying or working during your stay, you will need to apply for a study or work permit in addition to your TRV.
In this blog post, we will outline the steps you need to take in order to apply for a TRV. We will also dispel some common myths about TRVs so that you can go into your application with confidence.
Step 1: Determine if You Need a TRV
The first step is to determine whether or not you need a TRV. If you are from a country that is exempt from the TRV requirement, then you do not need to apply for one. For a complete list of exempt countries, click here.
If you are not from an exempt country and wish to visit or study in Canada, then you must obtain a TRV before you can enter the country. In order to apply for a TRV, you must first have been issued an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). An eTA is a document that is required of all foreign nationals who are entering Canada by air.

Step 2: Gather the Required Documents
Once you have determined that you need a TRV, the next step is to gather all of the required documents. The specific documents that you will need vary depending on your individual situation, but they may include things like proof of financial support, travel itinerary, and ties to your home country.

Step 3: Submit Your Application & Pay the Fees Once you have gathered all of the required documents, the next step is to submit your application online or by mail (depending on your country of residence). You will also be required to pay the applicable fees at this time. For more information on how to submit your application and pay the fees, click here.
