Canada Visit Visa

What is the Canada Visit Visa?

Canada is one of the most popular destinations for international travelers. It is a beautiful country with diverse landscapes and cultures. One of the best ways to explore Canada is by visiting its cities, which are not only eye-catching but also offer authentic cultural experiences. It is easy to visit Canada with a visa. Citizens from countries like UK, USA, and Australia can enter Canada with their passports alone. But citizens from other countries need to apply for Canada Visit Visa before entering the country.
