Spanish citizens who wish to visit Canada may need a visa depending on the purpose and duration of their stay. Here is some information on the types of visas available for Spanish citizens:
- Temporary Resident Visa (TRV): A TRV allows you to visit Canada for a temporary period, such as for tourism, business, or to visit family or friends. Spanish citizens may be eligible to apply for a TRV online or through a Visa Application Center.
- Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA): Spanish citizens who plan to visit Canada for tourism or business for up to six months and do not need a TRV may be able to apply for an eTA instead. The eTA is an electronic travel authorization that is linked to your passport and is valid for up to five years.
- Work Permit: Spanish citizens who have a job offer from a Canadian employer or who have been approved to work in Canada through a government program may need a work permit to work in Canada.
- Study Permit: Spanish citizens who plan to study in Canada for more than six months need a study permit. You can apply for a study permit online or through a Visa Application Center.
To apply for any of these visas, Spanish citizens will need to complete the appropriate application form and provide supporting documents such as a valid passport, photographs, proof of financial support, and a letter of invitation (if applicable). The application process and requirements can change over time, so it’s always a good idea to check the Government of Canada’s immigration website for the latest information before applying for a Canada visa.
