Canada is one of the best places to immigrate as their arms are wide open. It also offers a handful of outdoor activities, from hiking to skiing. With the breathtaking views of the mountains, lakes, plains, and quaint cities, Canada is a must-visit. You need a 10 Year Multiple Entry Canada Visa to be able to visit Canada to your heart’s content. We’ll teach you how.
A great thing about Canada is that the standard offer is multiple entry visas rather than single entries. Single Entry Visas are for those who visit without fees like an official visit of Government Leaders or participants of a special event but sometimes also issued to a lesser validity depending on your circumstances.
The length, however, depends on your passport as it will be valid for up to 10 years or a month before your passport expires, whichever is shorter.
