加拿大商务访客签证 Business Visitor Visas

除免签人士外,所有前往加拿大的外国公民无论基于何种原因、从事何种类型的活动,都需要访问签证才能入境。因此,商务访客必须申请临时居民签证,或访问签证才能入境加拿大。

Unless they are visa-exempt, all visitors to Canada require a visitor visa to enter the country, regardless of the type of activities they will pursue once in Canada. Business visitors must therefore apply for a temporary resident visa (TRV), or visitor visa, to come to Canada.

商务访客与工作许可 Business Visitor vs Work Permit

需要注意的时,商务访问签证不同于加拿大工作许可。外国公民不能以商务访客的身份进入加拿大劳动力市场就业。商务访问签证的目的,是授权签证持有人在加拿大短期停留从事诸如参加行业会议、实地考察、接受培训等商务活动。持有有效工作许可才能作为跨国公司内部调派人员,或受雇于加拿大企业在加拿大合法就业。外国公民可以作为访客并以访问者身份在加拿大寻找工作机会。

没有有效工作许可的外国公民不能在加拿大合法就业。如果外国访客在境内访问期间获得加拿大雇主的工作邀请,则在开始工作前必须申请工作许可。工作许可必须由负责申请人居住国或作为公民国家的加拿大签证中心审理,因此在申请过程中申请人可能需要从加拿大离境。在访问签有效期内,签证持有人可以合法在加拿大居留。

Note that a business visitor visa is different from a Canadian work permit. You cannot enter the Canadian workforce as a business visitor. Business visitor visas are intended to allow short-term stays for business activities such as industry conferences, site visits, or training. If you are transferred to Canada by your company or are otherwise employed by a Canadian company, you will need a work permit. You can come to Canada as a visitor to search for Canadian employment.

However, you cannot legally work in Canada without a work permit. If you secure a job offer from a Canadian employer while in Canada on a visitor visa, you must apply for a work permit before you can begin working. Your application must be processed by the Canadian visa office responsible for the country in which you live or are a citizen, so you may be required to leave Canada during the course of your application processing. However, you can legally remain in Canada for as long as your visitor visa is valid.
