Top 5 Tips To Get Higher Chances Of Canada Tourist Visa Approval From India

We noticed lots of genuine visitors application is being denied or refused. To avoid unhappy surprises, you should be aware of the following tips to increase your chances before applying for Canada Tourist/ visitor visa.

  • Employment:-
    Having a job in your home country will not guarantee your Canadian tourist/ visitor visa approval. Immigration officers also look at the length of your current and previous employment, the type of job you have or had, and your current salary income.
    The visa officer will also measure the duration of the requested visit to Canada. Has your company allowed you to leave for the said time, so better take a NOC letter from your company?

  • Family Obligation:-
    You may also obtain supporting letters from family members, attesting that they will look after your loved ones while you are shortly away. So provide supportive documents to visa officer that you have responsibility of you family members such as spouse, children, parents etc.

  • Property And Personal Asset:-
    Individuals are less likely to leave if they own a home, have property, or have large amounts of funds in investment accounts in their home country. While financial assets are required to establish the ability to support the visit, evidence of property and financial assets should also be provided as evidence that the applicant’s connections to the home country. Evidence can include ownership of real estate property, business, or house.

  • Travel History
    Suppose you have previously visited outside your home country for tourism and have not overstayed or have followed your allowable stay provided by the juristic immigration. In that case, you are more likely to establish trust with the immigration officer that you will not overstay during your visit to the country and that you will return to your home country after your vacation.

Please note:- Visa rejection doesn’t mean the end of the world. You can constantly re-apply anytime (unless otherwise stated on the visa denial letter) but this time, make sure to determine all the red flags which caused the denial and do not make the same things again. So better coordinate.

The main difference between these two visa types is that a single entry visa allows entry to Canada for one-time only and a multiple entry visa allows entry many times.


Which type of visa to get

You don’t need to choose. A multiple entry visa is what all visa applicants are automatically considered for. We will review your application and issue you a visa depending on your situation.


Multiple entry visa

While valid, a multiple entry visa will let you travel to Canada for six months at a time as many times as you want. It will be valid for up to 10 years or one month before your passport expires, whichever is shorter. You must arrive in Canada on or before the expiry date on your visa.


Single entry visa

A single entry visa lets you travel to Canada only one time. For instance, you may only be eligible for a single entry visa if:

  1. you are eligible for a fee-exemption and the purpose of your entry to Canada is limited (such as, for an official visit by a foreign national)
  2. you are taking part in a one-time special event in Canada
  3. there are approved country-specific procedures or guidelines in place.

In most cases, once you have left Canada, you will need a new visa to enter Canada again.

You won’t need a new visitor visa to return to Canada if you are travelling directly to the United States (including its Territories and Possessions) or St. Pierre and Miquelon.

Anyone who plans to visit Canada must apply from outside of Canada before they travel.

What your friend or family member needs depends on:

  1. the type of travel document they will travel with;
  2. the country that issued their travel document;
  3. their nationality; and
  4. how they will travel to Canada.

Before applying, find out what document(s) they need.

If they need a visitor visa, you may provide your family member or friend with a letter of invitation in support of their visa application. A letter of invitation can help, but it does not guarantee the person will get a visa.

There is no formal appeal process if your application for a temporary resident visa is refused.

Should you wish to re-apply, you should do so only if your situation has changed substantively or you have significant new information to submit.

You can hire a representative or an agent to help with your application. The representative or agent must be either:

  1. a lawyer or paralegal who is a member in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society, or
  2. a notary who is a member in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec, or
  3. an immigration consultant who is a member in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council

Find out more about who can represent you.

Due to privacy laws, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada cannot discuss your application with someone else without your written permission. If you want a representative or an agent to help you, you must fill out two forms:

  1. Use of a Representative (IMM 5476); and
  2. Authority to Release Personal Information to a Designated Individual (IMM 5475).
