Tips For Visiting Canada How Long Can I Stay In Canada As A Visitor?

When you arrive at your port of entry, whether by land, air or sea, the Canadian authorities will assess your health.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you won’t be allowed to enter Canada.

You must plan to quarantine for 14 days after entering Canada, and this plan is mandatory, even if you have no symptoms at all. If you don’t have a quarantine plan, you may not be allowed to enter the country.

Most visitors can stay for up to 6 months in Canada. If you’re allowed to enter Canada, the border services officer may allow you to stay for less or more than 6 months. If so, they’ll put the exit date on your passport. They might also give you a document indicating this date.

If your passport doesn’t get stamped, you can stay for 6 months from the day you entered Canada or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. However, if you need a stamp, you can ask a border services officer for one. 

If you want to stay longer than your authorized stay, you should apply for an extension at least 30 days before the authorized end of your stay.
