Business Visitor Visa

Business Visitor Visa

Being one of the strongest and the largest economies, thousands of business visitors visit Canada on a short-term visit. Business Visitor Visa facilitates international business persons to visit Canada temporarily. Although business persons may need to stay for a few days or weeks, a Business Visitor Visa allows them to stay for up to six months.

Business visitors can stay in Canada to attend business activities, participate in trade exhibitions or conferences. Alternatively, Canadian companies can invite business owners or executives for business deals and activities like sales and product training programs. Reputable immigration experts offer efficient services to help you enjoy your business trip to Canada.

International events in Canada

Foreign nationals who wish to organize trade shows, international business events, and business meetings in Canada receive strong support from the Canadian government. You can approach the Special Events Unit of Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to plan a successful business event in Canada. The unit is a comprehensive source of information for entry requirements.

  • You will get all information about the letter of invitation and visa process to help your delegates.
  • The unit will instruct the relevant visa offices in foreign countries to help you process visa applications in a timely manner.

Online registration of your event on the portal of IRCC will entitle you to all-out support from the Canadian government

Applying under the Business Visa program

The Business Visitor Visa perceives a business visitor as an individual visiting Canada to carry out business activities, with no direct involvement in the Canadian labor market. The application process under the Visitor Visa program is similar to the Temporary Visa Program. Applicants need to mention the purpose of the visit as business-oriented activities.

Business visitors may visit Canada to strike new business deals, take their business relationships to the next level, seek new investment opportunities, or finalize new business partnerships. One must demonstrate the following as a business person visiting Canada for a business visit:

  • Having a principal source of income or a business establishment outside Canada
  • Planning to be in Canada for less than six months
  • You have no criminal history
  • Qualify to enter Canada with a valid passport
  • Intend to leave Canada before within six months from the date of arrival
  • Have no plans to interfere with the Canadian labor market
  • No health risk to Canadians

Vital documents to apply for a Business Visitor Visa

Gather the following important documents before starting the application process for Business Visitor Visa:

  • A letter from a Canadian organization or employer inviting you for a business deal, investment activities, partnership, training, product demo, conference, or a trade show
  • An attestation from your company outside Canada, confirming your employment
  • Show proof of funds to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to support your stay and travel in and out of Canada
  • Travel plan that covers all activities from the start of the visit to the last day of leaving Canada

You will have to convince the immigration officer that you do not intend to stay in Canada beyond six months.

Besides conducting your business in Canada, you can explore Canada’s tourist attractions. You will be able to travel anywhere as a business visitor to visit your Canadian acquaintances, friends, or family members.
