Temporary Visa changes – Multiple Entry & Fee re-alignment

Temporary Visa changes – Multiple Entry & Fee re-alignment

After issuing almost a million Visit visas and receiving 35 million visitors annually, Canada has taken steps to make it easier for all visitors to visit Canada at a lower cost and more often, without additional applications.

Multiple Entry Visa

Effective February 6, 2014, Canada will consider all visit visa (referred to as Temporary Resident VisaTRV) applications for a multi-entry visa instead of single entry. Multiple-entry visas allow approved visitors to come and go from Canada for six months at a time for up to 10 years without having to reapply each time.

Fee re-alignment

The fee for TRV is now $100, reduced from $150 earlier for a Multiple-entry visa.

However, the fee for other visas, like Work Permits and Study permits has been increased marginally.
