How can I get a visitor visa?

A visitor visa is one of the most commonly-denied visas in Canada each and every year. As such, it is difficult to obtain a visitor visa to visit Canada and you must ensure that your application is flawless and complete.

You will have to complete your application kit, provide supporting documentation with your application and pay a fee before submitting your application for processing.

In addition, your vital supporting documentation must indicate several things for the visa officer processing your application:
That you will not overstay your visa.
That you will be able to support yourself and your family members when you are visiting Canada.
That you are not going to study or work on a visitor visa.
That you are a law abiding person, not a security threat and will provide a police certificate if necessary.
That you do not have a health problem that will endanger others and will provide proof of a medical exam if necessary.
