Canadian Visa For Programs Shorter Than 24 Weeks.
You do not need a study permit if you plan to take a course or program
in Canada that lasts 6 months or less. You must complete the course or
program within the period authorized for your stay in Canada.
Most travellers need a valid entry document such as an Electronic Travel
Authorization (eTA) or a visa to visit Canada. This will depend on your
citizenship or your situation. All visa-exempt foreign nationals except
for U.S. citizens need an eTA to enter Canada as tourists. The eTA authorizes to visit Canada for up to six
months or until the date prescribed by a border services officer upon
arrival to Canada. Applying for an eTA is a simple, inexpensive (CAD$7)
process that takes just a few minutes to complete online. In addition to
a fast process, the eTA is electronically linked to a traveler’s
passport and is valid for five years or until the passport expires.
Travellers with passports from visa-required countries and territories
need a visitor visa (temporary resident visa) to enter Canada. A visa is an official
document that is inserted into a passport giving permission for you to
come to Canada.
