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

My brother suggested Ackah Business Immigration Law. He just raved about Evelyn Ackah and told me that she would definitely take care of me. At first I thought the fees were a little steep because I have heard of other people paying a fraction of the fee quote I received. However, I do know that you get what you pay for. Ultimately, I am so happy that Ackah Business Immigration Law took me on as a client and supported me through the LMIA process. Evelyn Ackah’s team was absolutely amazing to work with! They were very responsive. They responded to all of my emails quickly – even on weekends! . Evelyn called me right away to talk through the issues with me. Words really just can’t describe the level of service I received from this firm. I have worked with many different lawyers and professionals before and I can definitely say that Evelyn Ackah and her team provide exceptional service. They are worth every penny! Thank you again Ackah Business Immigration Law for all of your hard work!
