The tourist visa for Canada is a document that is issued by the Canadian Government and which allows citizens coming from a country other than Canada or the United States to go there for fun, study or work.
There are two types of visitor visa: single entry visa and multiple entry visa.
Normally the visitor visa has a duration of six months (if it is granted for a shorter time, the duration will be specified on the document).
Once expired, you will have to submit a new application to be able to return to Canada.
The multiple entry visa, which is valid from the date of issue up to a maximum of 10 years (or at the expiry of the passport), allows you to make multiple stays in Canada, with a maximum duration of 6 months each, throughout its validity period. As a general rule, all visa applications are automatically treated as requests for multiple entry visa.
It is possible to request a visa extension by submitting an application at least 30 days before the deadline.
