The most popular reason for applying for a visa to the Canadian Embassy is for tourism. A visa is needed for all foreigners who want to see the sights of the country, visit museums or shopping, go on a hike, or attend a cultural event. This permit does not include employment, education, or marriage.
Every year, thousands of tourists apply for a visa to enter Canada, but not everyone gets a chance to visit the country. The main difficulties in obtaining a Visitor Visa is the suspicion of consular officers that applicants will try to use the visa for illegal purposes. The applicant must prove that he or she will not use the visa for employment, permanent residence, marriage registration, education, etc.).
Anyone who can prove there are confirmations for returning to their country of residence will have a good chance of getting a tourist visa to Canada. Convincing factors for the consular staff will be the presence of a family, minor children, and a permanent place of work or ownership of properties.
For tourism, business or guest purposes, applicants are issued a Visitor Visa. It is forbidden to change the purpose of the visit on your own. If the visa officer discovers a discrepancy between the application form and the applicant's real plans you can lose your visa and be deported along with a ban on visiting Canada in the future.
The validity of a Canadian tourist visa is from six months to 10 years. As a rule, a visa to Canada is issued before the end of the validity of the foreign passport, but at the discretion of the visa officer, the visa can be opened for a shorter period.

It is necessary to draw up an application form and submit it in advance of the date of departure to Canada. If a positive response is received from consular officers, the waiting period for a passport is up to 10 working days.
