Why your Visitor Visa (Temporary Resident Visa) to Canada was denied.

If you’re planning to visit Canada as a tourist, for a short-term work opportunity, or to visit family and friends, you may need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). A TRV, also known as a visitor visa, is a document that allows you to enter Canada for a limited period of time.

The first step in applying for a TRV is to determine whether you are eligible. In general, you must show that you are a genuine visitor who will leave Canada at the end of your authorized stay, that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay, and that you have no criminal record.


There are many reasons why a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) application for Canada might be denied. Here are some of the most common reasons:

If your application is missing information or contains errors, it may be rejected:

  • Ineligible candidate: If the visa officer determines that you are not eligible for a TRV, your application will be denied. For example, if you have a criminal record, a history of immigration violations, or pose a security risk, you may be considered ineligible.

  • Insufficient funds: You need to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in Canada. If the visa officer determines that you do not have enough money to support yourself, your application may be denied.

  • Purpose of visit: If the visa officer is not satisfied with the purpose of your visit, your application may be denied. For example, if you plan to visit Canada for tourism but your itinerary does not show enough tourist activities, the visa officer may question the validity of your application.

  • Inadequate ties to home country: If the visa officer determines that you do not have adequate ties to your home country, you may be considered a flight risk and your application may be denied. This is one of the most important points in your application. You need to provide as much ties to your home country to prove to the officer that you will in fact return to your home country upon conclusion of your visit.

  • Previous immigration violations: If you have previously violated immigration laws, your application may be denied.

In summary, applying for a Temporary Resident Visa for Canada can be a complex process that requires careful planning and attention to detail. By understanding the eligibility requirements, following the application process, and providing all necessary documents and information, you can increase your chances of success and enjoy a safe and enjoyable visit to Canada.
