So how do you convince the officer that you are a true visitor who will play by the rules? There are several factors that may help you to succeed. The first factor will be to show you have a strong establishment in your country. This includes your employment stability, any school attendance if that’s applicable to you, and assets you own, and marital status, children and family, and any other responsibilities that require your return to your home country. The more you show the better chance you will have to convince the officer.
The factor two will be to be clear of your reason of your visit. You have to specify why you’re visiting the country. Whether it’s a family celebration or family emergency or work related matter or pleasure visit, you have to make your reason clear. You can include your accommodation arrangement, invitation letter, and documents such as arranged registration to validate your client. Rule of thumb, try to include as much proof as possible. The factor three will be your financial arrangement. If there is no proof of sufficient funds for your visit, unfortunately your application is likely to get refused. Therefore, you should show sufficient funds available for your trip, no matter who’s covering the cost.
Now, once you come to Canada, if you decide to stay longer there may be options. Consult with an immigration professional for help. I hope your application is successful and your visit is enjoyable.
