Visitor Visa, also referred to as Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) is an official counterfoil document issued by a visa office that is placed in the applicant’s passport, showing that the individual has met the requirements for admission to Canada as a Temporary resident.
A TRV does not guarantee entry to Canada.
Residents of certain countries are Visa-exempt, meaning that they don’t need to request a TRV in order to come to Canada; however, they need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
An eTA is an entry requirement for visa-exempt individuals travelling to Canada by air. The eTA is electronically linked to the traveler’s passport and it is valid up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first. If you get a new passport, you will need a new eTA.
