Business visit to Canada

What is a business visitor?

A business visitor is the one who does not directly get into the labour market of Canada rather he is a visitor who  visits Canada to undertake the activities which are related to the international business.

Examples of this include someone who comes to Canada:

  • to meet people from companies doing business with their country
  • to observe site visits
  • Deal with the agreement of after sales
  • Buy goods in Canada for the foreign company.
  • because a Canadian company invited them for training in:
    • product use
    • sales
    • other business transaction functions

Business visitors don’t need a work permit to come to Canada and must prove that their main source of income and their main place of business are outside Canada.

In order to come to Canada as a business visitor, you will have to show that:

  • You plan to stay in Canada for less than six months;
  • You will not  enter the Canadian labour market;
  • Your main place of business, and source of income and profits, is outside Canada;
  • You have documents that support your application;
  • You meet Canada’s basic entry requirements with a valid travel document, such as a passport:
  • You have enough money for your stay and to return home;
  • You plan to leave Canada at the end of your visit; and
  • You are admissible to Canada.
