(ii) Business Visitor Visa:

Come to think of it, business and travel go hand in hand. As a person who is engaged in business, you may know how frequent travel for business purposes could be. These travels include both domestic and international travel. Though you do not need a permit to travel domestically still international travel can become a whole different ball game.

As a business visitor, you are exempt from applying for a work permit. The Canadian Labour Market may well be out of reach, but still, you will be able to work in Canada. A VISA or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) may be required on the basis of your purpose of visit.

Visa-exempt foreign nationals can apply for an eTA to enter the borders of Canada. Since this year, Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada have made it compulsory for foreign nationals and Canadian expect to carry a passport to gain entry in Canada.

You should only be traveling for one of the following reasons:

-> To be trained by a Canadian Company
-> To train employees at a Canadian Corporation
-> To buy products or services for institutions based out of Canada
-> To provide after-sales services
-> To attend
-> Meeting
-> Conventions
-> Conferences
-> Trade Fairs
Getting a work permit for business travel can be a daunting task and this is why it becomes easier to apply for a business visitor visa or an eTA. Canada is frequented by business visitors as it is an industrialized economy with a strong service sector. North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) makes it easier for corporations to engage in business with the US and Mexico directly from Canada. Canada’s economy is already in a quagmire with its aging population. Facilitating immigration and business activities is the least it can do to abate the effects of this ticking time bomb.
