Applying for a Canada Visitor Visa from the Philippines

In order to visit Canada, you must apply for a temporary resident visa. There are 2 ways you can do this from the Philippines:

  1. Apply online at www.canada.ca
  2. Apply through VFS Global. The visa application center offices are located in Cebu and Manila

Types of visas for Canada

If you have an ordinary passport and are traveling to Canada as a tourist, you will apply for a visitor visa. If you are going to Canada to visit family or another purpose such as study or you are transiting through Canada, you will need to apply for a different type of visa. You can find out which visa you need by going to the Government of Canada’s website: www.cic.gc.ca/visit-visiter/en/visas

The visitor visa will permit you to enter and stay in Canada for up to 6 months.

Visitor visas are issued as:

  1. Single entry – you can enter Canada once during the visa dates
  2. Multiple entry – you can enter Canada as many times as you wish before the visa expires

The Canada Visitor Visa Application Process

Processing times vary depending on where you are applying from. If you are applying from the Philippines, the processing time is 5 days. However, this time doesn’t include the time it takes for your application to be sent to the government of Canada from VFS in the Philippines or the time it takes you to provide biometric data.

In addition, processing times may be affected by:

  1. The type of application and whether it is complete
  2. Where your application is in relation to other applications already received
  3. How easily your information can be verified
  4. How long you take to respond to any requests made by the visa office (s)

It is important that you apply in plenty of time to allow enough time for your application to be processed before your departure date.

How to apply for a Canada visitor visa

Whether you apply online or in person, there are 4 steps which you must follow:

  1. Gather documents
  2. Complete the application
  3. Pay the fees
  4. Submit the application

The only difference will be step 4. If you are applying online, you may submit your application electronically. If you are applying in person through the visa application center, you will hand over your application to the visa office.
