Visitor Visa (commonly known as tourist visa), anyone who intends to travel to Canada for tourism, family visits or business activities must apply for a Visitor Visa.
Purpose of Visit
When applying for a Visitor Visa, the key point is your purpose of the visit.
If it is a tourism purpose, then you need to provide detailed travel plans, and detailed information about air tickets and accommodations.
If the purpose is for a business event, documents such as an invitation letter need to be provided to prove that traveling to Canada is indeed based on business needs.
For the purpose of visiting relatives, provide proof of the relationship with the person visiting the relative and the status of the person in Canada, an invitation letter, financial proof of the person in Canada, etc. When visiting relatives, focus on immediate family members. If you are just friends or distant relatives, it is better to travel for the purpose.
Canadian visitor visa is more focused on your travel history, that is, whether they have travelling records in other developed countries. For example, traveling to Japan, Europe, and Australia are a plus, especially for applicants who are holding a US visa.
