Canada Emigration

As a British citizen you don't need a visa to visit Canada but if you plan to visit to look for new business opportunities in Canada, to invest or network, you may qualify for as a Business visitor. There is no special visa applicant for Business visitors.

  • Business visitors can stay for a few days to a few weeks each trip but no longer than six months.
  • Your business profits are accrued outside Canada
  • Your main place of business is outside Canada

If you wish to immigrate to Canada you will need a visa (permanent resident card). You can apply for these visas either on-line www.cic.gc.ca or at the Canadian High Commission in London.
