Business Travel to Canada

Business Travel to Canada

Foreign nationals come to Canada for many professional and business travel reasons:

  • Professional conference or meetings
  • Educational opportunities
  • Exploring new business opportunities in Canada
  • Visiting Canada-based locations or offices

When you travel to Canada on business, your citizenship and how you cross borders into Canada (plane, car, boat, train) determine whether you need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). The reason for your visit determines the documentation you require to enter Canada as a business visitor, or if you qualify for a Work Permit Exemption.

Required Documentation

IRCC requires that when you are on business travel to Canada you bring the following documents with you to present to the Border Agent to be authorized to enter Canada (hand-carry these document: do not pack these in your suitcase):

  • a passport or travel document that is valid for your entire stay
  • a valid visitor visa, if applicable
  • if you need an eTA, you must travel using the same passport you used in your application
  • letters of support from your parent company and a letter of invitation from the Canadian host business or a Letter of Recognition from the Canada Border Services Agency
  • other documents such as warranty or service agreements, or contracts, if relevant to your visit
  • 24-hour contact details of your business host in Canada
  • proof that you have enough money for both your stay in Canada and your return home
