Temporary Resident Visa (TRV)

Citizens of some countries require a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada in addition to a Study Permit.

See the Government of Canada website for the list of countries and territories whose citizens require visas in order to enter Canada as visitors.

If you require a visa to enter, you should select “Visitor Visa” when completing the form. This will allow you to be considered for a multiple-entry visa which in turn allows you to re-enter Canada as many times as you need for the duration of your visa validity.


The current fee is $100 CDN for a Temporary Resident Visa.

Those applying for Study Permits outside of Canada will be exempt from this fee; all others, including spouses and children of students, will be assessed the fee.
