If you are a citizen of a TRV-required country, you will need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa. This article explains the two options available to you for applying, the documents needed and the cost of the visa and how to pay for it.
Canada welcomes tourists from all around the world, with a record set in 2017 of 20.8 million trips of one night or more.
