How To Travel To Canada As A Permanent resident
The benefits of travel to Canada are plentiful, and the experience is always exciting. Canada has lifted restrictions on stay at home orders, and started some commercial transportation and international trade. Visit the U.S. Consulate’s website for information on CO VID-19 in Canada.

For individuals travelling for a family holiday or other non-business related reason, there are certain considerations that need to be addressed when travelling outside of your country of citizenship. There are three levels of entry into Canada, based on your passport and Canadian immigration status. At the visa application stage, you will likely be applying for either a Temporary Residence visa, Federal Skilled Worker visa, or a Canadian passport and visa. Once granted entrance to Canada, you are subject to the customs and immigration laws of Canada. If you are travelling to Canada for a discretionary purpose, such as visiting relatives or a friend, then you may wish to apply for a visa first, then proceed to apply for your passport.
There are three types of entry into Canada, the Express Entry, Express Residual Entry, and the National Occupational Classification. If your work in Canada requires that you work in the public sector (such as in a hospital, school, or municipal office), you will need to apply for admission to the Canadian Labour force Registry. To apply for a Canadian passport, you must meet one of the following three requirements: you are not required to have worked in Canada for three years; you are not required to have reached Canadian citizenship age (ten years of age or older); or you are a member of the Canadian Forces. For a detailed list of eligibility requirements and the application procedure, please view the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.
One of the most popular ways to travel to Canada is through the express entry system. Express entry is a fast, easy and convenient system that provides access to permanent residency programs that match job applicants’ skills with available jobs in Canada. In order to qualify for an express entry selection, you must meet the following immigration criteria: you must be a qualified Canadian citizen; you must have obtained a job in Canada within the last two years; you must have passed the citizenship and immigration questions required; and you must meet all other eligibility requirements. To apply for an express entry selection, you must submit an application and one or more detailed advertisements. For additional information, visit the Express Entry website. If you are eligible, you will be notified in less than four weeks.
Another option for those travelling to Canada is the private entry process. Private entries require that you fill out an application and provide the necessary documents. The process for obtaining a private entry visa takes about four to six weeks. A written authorization is required from the individual applying to Canada for passage into the country. The written authorization will not be accepted if the applicant is guilty of a criminal offence in the country where they wish to enter Canada. Criminal proceedings can result in a temporary suspension of the applicant’s Canadian visa.
A person can also apply for entry into Canada using a written authorization provided by a foreign national. This type of written authorization is most often needed for tourists who are planning to stay in another country for a specified period of time. When applying for this type of visa, the applicant must provide proof that they can meet the health requirements for travel to Canada. Foreign nationals may also need to provide proof that they have adequate financial resources and that they have immunization and travel medical certificates in their possession.
Immigrants can also use the TRV to reach Canada. The procedure for obtaining a TRV differs from that of an immigrant or visitor. Instead of submitting an application through the government system, the applicant must first obtain an authorized representative from the office of Immigration, who will provide them with the necessary documents to support their claim. The authorized representative will also help the applicant prepare for their trip by providing advice on appropriate vaccinations and health requirements. Once the paperwork is submitted and approved, the traveler will receive a temporary resident visa.
Some tourists choose to stay in Canada for an extended period of time instead of resettling to another country. For these individuals, a permanent resident card (TRN) may be required. An TRN will grant a Canadian citizen permanent resident status once the tourist has fulfilled the eligibility requirements. Permanent resident status requires that the individual be Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada (immigrants and workers only) and that they have provided proof of at least three years of residence in the country. Immigrants may also apply for TRN status if they are permanently resident in Canada and have special humanitarian or compassionate reasons for applying for Canadian citizenship.
