How to obtain a Canadian tourist or visitor visa from the United Kingdom (UK)?

Travelling to Canada from the United Kingdom (UK) can be an exciting experience. However, before you can enter Canada as a tourist or visitor, you may need to obtain a Canadian tourist or visitor visa. In this blog, we will discuss how UK residents can obtain a Canadian tourist or visitor visa.

Firstly, it’s important to understand that not all UK residents require a visa to visit Canada. If you are a UK citizen with a valid passport, you may be eligible to travel to Canada without a visa for up to six months. However, if you are a UK citizen who holds a non-UK passport or a UK permanent resident, you may need to apply for a Canadian visitor visa.

To apply for a Canadian visitor visa, you must first determine which type of visa you require. There are two types of Canadian visitor visas: a single-entry visa and a multiple-entry visa. A single-entry visa allows you to enter Canada once, while a multiple-entry visa allows you to enter Canada multiple times within a specified period.

To apply for a Canadian visitor visa, you must follow these steps:

  1. Determine your eligibility: Check the Canadian government website to see if you are eligible for a visitor visa. You may also need to provide biometrics as part of your application.
  2. Gather your documents: You will need to provide documents such as your passport, photographs, travel itinerary, proof of financial support, and any additional documents that may be required depending on your circumstances.
  3. Complete the application form: You can complete your application online or on paper. Make sure to answer all questions truthfully and accurately.
  4. Pay the application fee: The application fee for a Canadian visitor visa varies depending on the type of visa you are applying for.
  5. Submit your application: You can submit your application and supporting documents online or in person at a Canadian visa application centre.
  6. Wait for a decision: The processing time for a Canadian visitor visa varies depending on the country you are applying from, but it typically takes a few weeks to process.

In summary, obtaining a Canadian visitor visa from the UK involves determining your eligibility, gathering your documents, completing the application form, paying the application fee, submitting your application, and waiting for a decision. If you have any questions or concerns about the application process, it may be helpful to seek the advice of a qualified immigration lawyer.
