The visa is a policy document that allows people, who do not have the nationality of a country, to legally have access to it for an established period of time.Canada offers various types of visas that can be classified as temporary or permanent residence.
The visa system works around a system of reciprocity. That is, if you require a visa to go to any country, the citizens of that country will also need a visa for entering into this country.
However, there are cases in which diplomatic agreements establish that there is no need of a visa to enter to certain countries. This is the case in Canada. U.S. citizens and most of the European Union countries do not need a visa to enter into Canadian territory. In contrast, Latin American countries require a visa to enter Canada. As follows, you will be able of acknowledging the different types of existing visas that exist to go to Canada.
It is recalled that the processing of visas should be made on the premises of the Canadian Embassy nearest your current location.
