Canada shifting to multiple entry visas

With effect from 6th February, 2014, Canada will start its multiple entry visas.

What’s shift to Canada multiple entry visas?—Well, visitors coming to Canada will see a huge advantage from now onwards. Yes, as per the information, qualified visitors from different nations wanting to come and go from this nation for a period of six months at a time for up to ten years will no longer be required to apply for Canada visitors visas every time.

Canada has announced its shift to Canada multiple entry visas from 6th February, 2014. So, it will prove very beneficial for those wanting to come and go(from Canada) without having the need to apply every time for Canada visitor visas.

This has been announced by Canada immigration department CIC(Citizenship and Immigration Canada).

Reduced fee for Canada temporary resident visa—The good thing is that Canada has announced reduced fee for TRV (Temporary resident visa) program. So, the new reduced TRV fee is now $100 from the earlier fee of $150.

This new fee will be processing of Canada multiple entry visa or Canada single entry visa. Isn’t it great?

To attract more foreign visitors--The process of Canada visa application is also going be much simpler for those seeking to make an application for coming to Canada.

All this is being done for attracting more and more foreigners to come and visit Canada. It will increase tourism as well as trade in the nation and prove a boon to the national economy.

Such efforts will lead to luring increased number of eligible foreign visitors wanting to make multiple Canada visits without having to apply for Canada visitor visas every time they wish to come to Canada.

Meanwhile, it needs to be noted that CIC is going to introduce higher fees in TRV program from 6th February, 2014.

Aim of such changes in Canada visa fee reflects the actual Canada visa processing costs while reducing the burden on Canada taxpayers.

Some facts about Canada visitor visas—Canada visitor visas help foreigners to come and visit Canada. Each year, nearly 35 million foreigners visit Canada. In the last few years, the number of Canada visitor visas issued by CIC has been witnessing a record growth (Canada issued one million visitor visas in the year 2012).
