New 10-year multiple entry visas coming soon

10-year multiple entry visas announced

According to Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney, a new, easier way to travel to Canada is coming soon with the 10-year multiple entry visa.

“More applications and higher expectations mean that Citizenship and Immigration Canada needs a more responsive and flexible processing system,” said Minister Kenney. “To achieve that, the department is providing applicants and staff with the right tools to deliver on those expectations,” he said.

Some 10-year multiple entry visas already given out

The 10-year multiple entry visas have already been handed out to some people who have immigration applications in the works, such as parents and grandparents. In all cases, the visas will be given to travelers who are considered low-risk, but are from countries whose residents require a visa to come to Canada.

Currently, multiple entry visas are valid for five years but as more countries begin issuing passports that are valid for 10 years, 10-year multiple entry visas are becoming more necessary.

Multiple entry visas are temporary resident visas, which come in either single-entry visas or multiple entry visas. Single entry visa holders can only enter Canada once, although they can also travel to the United States with a few conditions. If they leave Canada, they will have to apply for a new visa.
