A Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), also referred to as a visitor visa or Canada Tourist visa, is an official document issued by a Canadian visa office that is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident (either as a visitor, a student, or a worker).
There are two types of Visitor Visas for Canada:
- Single entry visa: Single entry visas are granted for a period of up to 6 months
- Multiple-entry visa: A multiple-entry visa allows you to enter Canada several times during the period while your visa is valid. A multiple-entry visa is valid for a maximum of ten years or one month prior to the expiry date on the passport/re-entry visa, whichever is earlier.

How long can you stay in Canada with your visitor’s visa?
Most visitors are allowed a six-month stay from the day they entered Canada. If the officer authorizes a stay of less than six months, they will indicate in your passport the date by which you must leave Canada. If you want to stay longer than your authorized stay, you should apply for an extension at least 30 days before the authorized end of your stay.
Extending your Visitor’s Visa
If you decide you want to stay longer, you can apply for an extension. You must send your application to extend your stay at least 30 days before your temporary resident visa expires. If you stay longer than you are allowed by your visa, you will lose your temporary resident status and you could be asked to leave Canada.
You must apply to extend your stay if you want to:
- visit, study or work longer in Canada
- change the type of your permit (for example, from studying to working in Canada) or
- change the conditions of your stay (for example, if you are studying or working in Canada, and you want to change schools or jobs).
