Until further notice, visitors are not allowed to enter Canada. Some visitors are exempt from travel restrictions whether entering the country for a non-discretionary purpose.
Who is exempt:
- an immediate family member of a Canadian citizen, person registered under Canada’s Indian Act or permanent resident who is staying in Canada for 15 days or more
- an extended family member of a Canadian citizen, person registered under Canada’s Indian Act or permanent resident who is staying in Canada for 15 days or more
- a person who is authorized by the Public Health Agency of Canada to travel to Canada for compassionate reasons such as being present during the final moments of life of a loved one, providing support to a person deemed critically ill, or providing care to a person who medically requires support
Canadian citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents have the right to enter Canada freely. Other visitors to Canada, including tourists, students, and workers, may need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to enter the country.
You do not need a Temporary Resident Visa to visit Canada if you are from a visa-exempt country. An Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) will be required from visa-exempt travelers to board their flight to Canada.
Citizens from non-exempt countries must apply for a Temporary Resident Visa before entering Canada. If you plan to stay in Canada as a visitor for longer than 6 months, you will need a Visitor Permit to extend your stay.
Parent or grandparent of a Canadian permanent resident or citizen may be eligible for a super visa valid for up to 10 years. The super visa allows the visitor to stay in Canada for up to 2 years at a time.
