An E-travel Visa is a type of electronic visa that was created with the goal of saving time and reducing bother. Some nations allow certain passport holders to visit without first obtaining a visa from the embassy. Travelers can apply for visas and pay costs online from the convenience of their own homes. It is fairly simple to apply for an e-visa using simply their passport information.
Q3.What is the difference between e-visa validity and duration?
The time granted by law to stay in a country legally is referred to as the duration of visa stay. The length of your visa stay begins when you enter the country. Travelers must depart the country within the specified time frame.
The validity of a visa is determined by the length of time it is valid. The visa is valid for a longer period of time than the duration term. The validity period could be one month, a year, or even more.
Q4.What is electronic travel authorization?
Those foreign citizens who are exempted from getting tourist visas to Canada on their passport are required to have electronic travel authorization (eTA) and their passport while entering Canada.

a) Passport holder with valid Canadian visas such as a student visa or work visa
b) Canadian Passport holders, i.e., citizens of Canada
c) Canada PR holders
d) US passport holders
Q6.What is the difference between eVisa and eTA?
a) An eTA is not the same as a visa:
A visa is not the same as an electronic travel authorization. An eTA can only be obtained by citizens of countries that participate in the destination's Visa Waiver Program. On the other hand, eVisas are often available to inhabitants of almost all nations and territories.
b) Validity and Limit:
The two documents also differ in terms of how long they are valid for and how far they can go. An eVisa is usually only good for 30 to 60 days, however an eTA is usually good for a lengthy time.
An eTA allows the possessor to enter their destination several times, whereas an eVisa is normally single-entry.
Q7.Do I have to apply for a visa for each member of my family?
To enter a country lawfully, every member of a family requires a visa. The application and other required paperwork must be completed and submitted by each individual. Although the application and costs for the entire family can be submitted at the same time. If any of the members are under the age of 18, a guardian must assist them in filling out the necessary forms.
Q8.What happens if my visa application is denied?
If you are ruled ineligible for a visa, you will be contacted and given the opportunity to reapply at a later date. Any applicant who has had their visa denied for any reason can reapply in the future by paying the visa fees again. It is not possible to get a refund for the money. To avoid this, Visa seekers should be consulted for thorough information on the process and requirements. After a denial, there is no time limit for reapplying.
Q9.Will I be informed why my visa was denied?
Yes, the applicant is advised of the legal part that is being used to deny the visa. For more information, visa applicants should speak with a consular officer or a Visa advisor. They can reapply if they are denied the first time.
Q10.Can I extend the validity of my visa after it has expired?
It is critical to remember that you must apply for a visa renewal before your current visa expires. Overstaying in any country after the expiration term may result in penalties. In a different scenario, if your visa expires while you're travelling internationally, you'll need to reapply before returning to the country.
You can stay in the nation if your visa expires while you are legally present, as long as your status is legal and you follow all immigration requirements.
Q11.How long does it take for an electronic visa to be processed?
The time it takes to process an e-visa varies on the kind and nation for which you are applying.

Consult a visa expert for complete information on processing times, fees, and duration for the nation you wish to apply for.
Q12.What are the prerequisites and documentation for applying for an e-visa?

2. Photographs that are the size of a passport.
Q13.Is it possible to apply for multiple visas at the same time?
Certain countries' governments accept two valid visas, but not of the same kind. Even if you have many valid visas in your passport, you can only enter the country with one of them. You, for example, have a B1/B2 tourist visa and an E-2 work visa in the United States. You must arrive on your E-2 work visa if you intend to work in the United States throughout your trip. Your status will be B-2 if you enter on a tourist visa, which means you won't be permitted to work.
Q14.If my visa is approved, does it mean I'll be admitted to the country I've requested?
Only after receiving a letter of acceptance from the university will your study visa be authorized. The student visa will allow you to stay for the duration of the course and work part-time after it begins. You can learn more about study visas in the country where you choose to pursue your higher education.
Q15.Is a vaccine or PCR required for international travel?

Before you plan your trip, make sure you check all of the government's restrictions and regulations.
Q16.Can I stay in the target country for longer than the visa's validity period?
Most countries allow visitors to stay as tourists for one to three months. If you can show that you have enough money, you might be able to extend your stay. Some countries require a monthly extension, while others only require three-month extensions. The majority of countries have severe rules about how long international tourists can stay in their country.
Q17. What are the tax implications of obtaining permanent residence in Canada?
The Canadian government levies income taxes based on where you live rather than your citizenship. As a result, becoming a Canadian citizen while being a non-resident for tax reasons is conceivable. An individual would be obligated to pay Canadian taxes on worldwide income after becoming a permanent resident but before becoming a citizen.
A freshly arrived immigrant's assets are not taxed under Canadian law.
