Understanding the Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) and Its Implications

Canada Tempoorary Visa

Thurs, 07th September 2023

Every year, Canada welcomes numerous temporary residents. Individuals who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or from visa-exempt countries must obtain a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) if they intend to visit for a temporary purpose. This purpose includes tourism and temporary work.

The TRV, granted by a Canadian Immigration Visa Office, indicates compliance with entry requirements but doesn't guarantee entry or temporary resident status.


To apply for a TRV, one must complete Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) forms, pay processing fees, and provide supporting documents such as passport photos, financial proof, and travel details.


A TRV's validity depends on the absence of an expiry stamp or document in the passport. If no such indication exists, temporary resident status lasts for six months from the entry date.

There are two types of TRVs: multiple-entry and single-entry. The former permits multiple visits to Canada within its validity, typically up to 10 years. The latter is for short-term visits related to special events.


Extending a temporary stay involves applying online or through a paper application, ideally at least 30 days before status expiration. If the application is pending when the status expires, maintained status lets applicants stay until a decision is reached.

Working in Canada generally requires a work permit, and work permit applications might necessitate an extended stay while awaiting decisions.


Sponsors in Canada can invite family members, such as spouses, through a TRV. Recent changes led to high approval rates for spousal TRVs, allowing families to stay while permanent residency applications are processed.


Dual intent allows individuals to seek permanent residence while temporarily entering Canada for work, study, or visit. Nonetheless, the obligation to meet temporary resident requirements, including departure at the authorized stay's end, remains even with potential permanent residence approval.

Canada Express Entry Draw; June 2019
The latest Canada Express Entry draw was held on 12 June 2019, with 3,350 invitations issued. The lowest qualifying score on the comprehensive ranking system (CRS) was 465 points. The next draw is expected to have a similar minimum CRS score. The previous draw had a minimum cut off point of 470.

These scores are considered pretty high on the CRS system. The reasons can be attributed to the fact that a greater number of qualified candidates have entered the Express Entry pool, and an increased time period between the draws, allowing a greater number of candidates to enter the pool; thus making the Express Entry Draws very competitive.
