You can get a temporary visa if your plans are to travel back and forth from your home country, or you are only planning a short-term stay. Immigration lawyers are available to help you choose the right one for your Canadian visiting needs. Below are the four types of temporary visa you can apply for and how they are used.
1. Single Visit Visa
The single visit visa is designed for those that plan to stay for 6-months or less and will have the date stamped on the passport, or on any official document presented for business or student activity. You do have the ability to travel to the United States and return, but you must not overstay your original 6-month time allotment. It’s not the ideal visa for someone that has to travel back and forth to other countries, such as France or Japan.
2. Multiple Visit Visa
The multiple visit visa is perfect for those that live in countries other than the United States and will need to travel back and forth or travel to other countries during the valid visa time period. The visa is good for five years but you must maintain a valid passport. The visa will expire one month before your passport expires. It means you must renew the passport for the visa to stay in effect if it expires before the date on the visa. Visit Bellissimo Law Group if you want to find more resources and information.
3. Caregiver Visa
Gaining a caregiver visa can be complicated. You first need to have the job offer assessed and be given an LMIA approval. You then have to enter a signed employment contract and the employer must show evidence that locating a Canadian worker is not possible for the position. You must demonstrate you have a high school equivalent education and at least 6-months training in the field of caregiving. Next, you will need to obtain a Canadian work permit. Proficiency in English or French is required. If everything is approved, you will then be issued a caregiver visa and the necessary documents required to enter the country.
4. Working Holiday Visa
How would you like to spend time visiting Canada, yet have the ability to work temporarily to pay for the travels? The working holiday visa is one that works well for countries that partner with Canada in youth mobility programs. Earn invaluable work experience with Canadian businesses and travel throughout the country freely in your off-time. Spend quality time working on language skills and learning the Canadian culture. It provides an internship experience unlike any other. Vacationing will never be the same when you combine the fun of travels, learning, and building work skills.
