Visitor visa: How to apply  

We’re prioritizing applications from people who are eligible to travel to Canada right now

  • We strongly encourage you to wait until you’re eligible to travel to Canada before you submit a visitor visa application.
    • The information you submit with your application will be the most up to date, which will reduce delays in the processing of your application.
  • If you already submitted an application for a visitor visa and will be eligible to travel starting in September, instructions will be available soon.
