We provide the following visa types:
Tourist Visa/ Temporary Resident Visa
The tourist visa is valid for 6 months, and can be extended in certain circumstances. The basic requirements are; a valid passport, being in good health and no criminal conviction. It is important to convince the visa officer that you will come back after the given period is up, therefore showing strong ties to the home country is critical. For example, If employed at a stable job (pay slips, letter from employer etc) or if you have family back home (parents or immediate family). Furthermore, showing adequate funds is also imperative. But if you have a family member in Canada providing shelter, food and funds a sponsorship letter is required from the relevant party.
Canadian employers now hire foreign workers with professional qualifications and skills to come work in Canada on a permanent or temporary basis. Once you obtain a valid job offer, the Canadian Government will send you an ITA (Invitation to Apply), which would then enable you to get permanent residency in Canada under the Express Entry program.
Now you can sponsor your family members/ relatives through this visa. The only requirements being if your family member is:
- 18 years and above.
- A Canadian Permanent Resident.
- A Citizen of Canada.
Your relative will have to support you financially and provide you with the necessary means to live in Canada (food, shelter, and clothing). Your relative should be financially stable and free of any criminal conviction.
