How To Extend Visitor Visa After 6 Months In Canada. If you want to extend your stay in Canada on visitor visa beyond 6 months, then you must apply for a visitor record.
It gives you visitor status and permits you to stay longer. Additionally, be mindful that you apply for the visitor record before your current stay of 6 months expire.
This article will explain how to apply for a visitor record to extend your stay in Canada.
Who is Eligible to Apply?
A visitor record is for someone who wants to extend their stay in Canada as a visitor.
Additionally, a study permit holder can also change their status to visitor record if their permit is expiring.
Similarly, even a work permit holder can apply for a visitor record to extend their stay.
However, one cannot work or study with a visitor record.
How to Apply?
The application fee for a visitor record is $100. You must have a debit or credit card to pay the application fees.
Moreover, you’ll need a scanner or camera to submit the documents and fill out your forms. Applying online will help process your file faster.
Step 1: Draft the following forms:
Before starting, refer to the
IRCC instruction guide to help you with case-specific documents and instructions. After you have read the instructions, fill out the following forms:
Application to Change Conditions, Extend my Stay or Remain in Canada as a Visitor or Temporary Resident Permit Holder –
Form IMM 5708 Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union, if applicable –
Form IMM 636.51 Use of Representative if applicable –
Form IMM 5476
Step 2: Use the online tool for documents
To apply, you must provide the following answers to get a personalized document checklist:
For question 1: “What would you like to do in Canada?” Select “Visit.”
Then you’ll be asked, “What is your current country/territory of residence?” Select “Canada.”
Step 3: Sign-in or create an account.
You can create your account or sign in
here. After creating your account, you must:
Pay your application fees.
Submit your application.
Check your application status.
Please note that a visitor record is not a visa. You’ll need to leave Canada by the date your visitor record mentions. After exiting Canada, you can apply for a new visitor visa from your home country.
