When traveling to Canada, you may need an electronic travel authorization or a visitor visa. The presentation of one or the other document depends on various factors.

What are the requirements to be able to apply for a visitor visa?

If you want to apply for a visitor visa, you must meet several requirements.

Among these, you must have a valid passport, be in good health, and not have been convicted of any criminal activity or immigration-related offenses.

Finally, you must have a certain amount of money that is sufficient for your entire stay in Canada.

What other steps are necessary during the processing of your request?

Once your request is sent, the competent authorities will review your file. During the processing of your application, you may be required to attend an interview conducted by a representative in your country.

These conditions are once again not exhaustive, and in order to know if you meet the eligibility conditions, we invite you to contact us to discuss the process with a professional.
