Temporary Resident Visas
A temporary resident visa (TRV) is an official counterfoil document issued by a visa office that is placed in a person’s passport to show that they have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident.
Holding a TRV does not guarantee entry to Canada. The admission of foreign nationals into Canada as temporary residents is a privilege, not a right.
There are three types of Temporary Resident Visas:
- Single Entry Visa – this allows the foreign national only one entry into Canada
- Multiple Entry Visa – this allows the foreign national unlimited entry into Canada pending the validity of the Visa
- Transit Visa – this allows entry to Canada for foreign nationals who are travelling and who stop in Canada for less that forty-eight (48) hours, but who’s country of origin is one that requires a visa.
