coming to canada to visit, work or study

Applying for entry to Canada for the purposes of tourism, work or study can
be stressful because plans for arrival are often made well in advance of the
application for a visa or for entry. Different considerations are applied
depending on the purpose of temporary entry and length of stay. In addition,
certain applicants for temporary entry can be refused on medical or other grounds. Please see HERE for more information about medical inadmissibility.

Jordan Battista can assist you to prepare for your application for permission to visit, study or work in Canada. We have years of experience relieving concerns such as:

• how can I prove that I have a temporary intention?

• what questions will I be asked when I arrive at the border?

• will the fact that I have filed an application for permanent residence prevent me from visiting Canada?

• does a previous refusal of entry make another attempt pointless?

• how can I change my status after I arrive in Canada?

A well prepared application for temporary entry will allow for speedy decision making and help you arrive at the Canadian border with confidence. Contact us to find out more.
