Application & Requirements: How to Apply for a Canadian Visa
Who Needs a Canadian visa
If you are interested in visiting, studying, working in, or permanently moving to Canada, you must normally apply for a visa or permit. Canadian visas are usually issued by a visa office within a Canadian embassy outside of Canada. Depending on the purpose and/or length of your visit to Canada, citizens of visa exempt countries may not require a visa; however, they will need to obtain an electronic Travel Authorization or ETA.
Canadian Visa requirements depend also on the purpose of your intended stay in Canada and whether you plan to stay temporarily or settle permanently in Canada. You can acquire a visa, either for permanent or temporary residency. At Siminca Inc., we help individuals get a Canadian visa, electronic travel authorization, or Canadian permit to visit, study, invest, or work in Canada.
When applying to a Canadian visa, visitors and immigrant applicants are also required to prove that they comply with the criteria set by Canada to be approved for a visa. Ask Siminca if you qualify and we will assess your profile.
If you are already in Canada and your visa will expire, you may be able to ask for an extension of your stay without leaving Canada. Ask Siminca if you qualify for an extension of your visa.
