To visit Canada, citizens of Pakistan have to apply for a Canada Visit Visa, also known as a Visitor Visa. It is a temporary resident visa that allows travelers to travel for tourism, business meetings, or to visit a family member.
Temporary resident visas have specific requirements; read below to discover more about the Canadian Visas.
What is the Canada Visitor Visa for Pakistani Citizens?
The Visitor Visa is a Canadian visa for temporary residence in the country. This official document is added to your passport and permits you to stay up to 180 days Per Entry in the territory.
You can visit Canada for tourism, holidays, or vacation with a Canadian visit visa. It’s also a great option to enter Canada if you are meeting family or friends that are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
The Government of Canada allows the use of this document as a transit visa. Also, suppose you're visiting Canada for business activities, you can use this temporary resident visa as well. So, there are plenty of situations where you’ll be able to use this visa.
You won’t be able to escape an appointment at the local visa application center as they need to take the applicant's biometric information. But you can count on iVisa services to guide you through the application process. We will send you a detailed manual guide with all application steps and you will have an exclusive iVisa expert helping you with all your questions. We review all documents and will give the instructions to book an appointment at your local application center.
Be aware that this visa is not a study permit, work permit, or work visa. Most applicants must contact the embassy for this kind of long-term document.
Pakistan Citizens can Obtain a Canada Multiple entry visa
Some nationalities can only get a Single-Entry visa, but Pakistanis are eligible for a Multiple Entry Visitor Visa. This means you can make multiple trips to the country during the validity period, 10 years after issued. You can stay 180 days Per Entry each time.
Requirements to Obtain a Canada Visitor Visa as a Pakistani?
The applicant needs to meet a few basic requirements to get a visa to visit Canada. The official government requires a document list and some conditions that must be met.
- Citizens of Pakistan must be in good health and have no criminal or immigration-related convictions.
- Also, you will need to be able to prove that you have financial ties—such as a job, home, financial assets, or family— to go back to your home country. This shows that you are visiting Canada without the intent to stay permanently, and you will leave Canada at the end of your stay. This is very important if you have family members or other relatives that are permanent residents in the country.
- Among the entry requirements is also proof of enough money for your stay. The amount of money you will need depends on how long you will stay and if you will stay in a hotel, or with friends or relatives.
Factors that could make the applicant ineligible for a Canada Visitor Visa:
- Criminal activity
- Human rights violations
- Participation in organized crime.
Documents required to fill out the Canada visa application as a Pakistani
Pakistan Citizens must provide travel documents like in any other visa application.
- Original Passport Personal Details Scan (at least six months validity)
- National ID
The government can ask for additional documents, such as bank statements, to prove you have enough money for your stay in Canada. In this case, iVisa will inform you and help you get everything you need to get the visa.
