Did you know you can apply for Canada visitor visa from anywhere in the world? You can fill out the application online, at a Visa Application Center (VAC) in your home country, or by mail.
In order to qualify as a Canadian visitor, there are certain requirements that need to be met. This blog post will tell you everything you need to know about how to apply for a Canada Visitor Visa and what you can do if your application is denied.
Who Can Get a Visitor’s Visa in Canada?
First, you must be able to get a Canada visitor visa. The following are the requirements:
• When you send in your application, you must be in your home country or have a valid permit in the country where you live. If you don’t, your application will be rejected and you’ll have to try again.
• Your passport must be valid for at least six months after the date you plan to leave Canada.
• You must have enough money to live on while you are in Canada. Usually, this means you need to show proof of income or that you have a sponsor.
• You can’t have a criminal record or be on a security list of any kind (such as the no fly list).
• You need a letter from your doctor saying that you are healthy enough to travel to Canada.
• You have to show that you will leave Canada when your trip is over.
If you think it will be easy for you to meet these requirements, keep reading. The next thing we will cover is the process of how to apply for a Canada Visitor Visa.
How to Get a Visa for Canada
The first step is to download the application form from the IRCC website and fill it out.
After you’ve filled it out, you’ll need to get all the needed documents and send them in with your application. Here are some of the most important:
• Fingerprints (fingerprints and photo).
• Proof of who you are. This can be a copy of your driver’s license or passport, but it can’t be more than six months old. If you don’t have either, you will need two pieces of government-issued ID that show your full name and date of birth (such as a social security card, student ID or certificate of Indian Status).
• Proof that you have enough money to live on while in Canada.
• Your plane ticket to Canada. This can’t be an e-ticket unless you booked it through a travel agent.
When you send in all of these things, your application will be processed. The average processing time is about two weeks, but if there are problems, it can take up to three months. See IRCC processing time for visitors visa to find out how to find out where your application is in the process.
How to get a visa to Canada from India
Once you know you’re eligible, the next step is to get together all of the necessary paperwork. There are two ways to get a Canada visa from India:
1. Go to a Canadian embassy or consulate in India and fill out an application.
2. Fill out an application on the eTA website.
Getting a Canada visa from India costs different amounts, depending on the type of visa and how you apply. For example, if you apply for a visitor visa at a Canadian embassy or consulate, you have to pay C$100 (INR 6,053) plus VFS fees. If you apply online, you only have to pay C$100 (INR 6,053).
A visitor visa for an Indian family of five or more would cost C$100 for a single or multiple entry, and extending a visa would cost about the same as a new application.

To get a Canada visa from China, you have to take a few steps and pay a fee of about $100. What you have to do is:
1. Figure out what kind of visa you need.
Canadians going to China can get many different kinds of visas, so it’s important to figure out which one is best for you. Tourist visas (“L”) and business visas (“M”) are the most common types of visas Canadians use to visit China. If you aren’t sure what kind of visa you need or have specific questions about visas, please contact the nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate.
2. Get the documents you need (see instructions and general requirements for Canada visirots visa above).

The cost of getting a visa depends on what kind of visa you want. Most of the time, though, each application comes with a processing fee and a postage fee. Visit the Canada website or call your local Canadian embassy or consulate for more information.

Where to submit Canada visa application?
You can get a Canada visa from three different places.
1. Online: on the website of the IRCC. I’d suggest reading about how to apply for a Canada visa online on our site.
2. In person: at an embassy or consulate of Canada. The Visa Application Center (VAC) near you will give you more information.
2. By mail: You can get an application package from the Visa Application Office or the I.R.C.C. There are only a few countries where you can apply by mail.
If you’ve been given a Canada visitor visa, good for you! But you should remember that the visa is only good for six months. If you don’t get into Canada within that time, you won’t be allowed in. If this is the case, you will have to apply for a new visa and pay all the fees again.
If your application isn’t accepted, it doesn’t mean that your plans are ruined forever! Instead, you can still get into Canada in a number of ways.
What to do if your visa request is turned down
Applying for a Temporary Resident Visa is one choice. People who want to stay in Canada for more than 90 days but don’t meet the requirements to become a permanent resident can get this visa. This website has more information about how to apply for this kind of visa.
You can also have a friend or family member sponsor you. This means that they will agree to pay for you while you are in Canada and will promise that you will leave when your trip is over. On the website for Citizenship and Immigration, you can find out more about how this process works.
Last but not least, if nothing else works, you can always try to change the decision. This process is a bit more complicated, so before you try to do it, you should talk to an immigration lawyer.
