When you first come to Canada as a visitor, you use one of these documents to enter:
- a visitor visa (also called a temporary resident visa)
- an electronic travel authorization (eTA)
- a valid passport or travel document
If you want to extend your stay in Canada as a visitor (stay in Canada longer), you need to apply for a visitor record. A visitor record is not a visa.
A visitor record is a document that gives you status as a visitor in Canada and allows you to stay longer and includes a new expiry date and that’s the new date that you must leave Canada by.
You must apply for a visitor record before your current status expires.
