Dear All,

I received multi-entry Canadian VISITOR VISA for 1-year last which is expiring in July end. Currently, I am residing in US on H1-B and need to re-apply Canada VISA. Should I re-apply after expiry of current VISA or I could apply in advance before my current VISA expires?

Thanks
RG

Wait for it to expire.

You can't have two TRVs valid at the same time. Some offices may cancel the one you have and issue you another one if you are in that small gap that makes it reasonable to do so, but most of the times your request will be denied (not refused) as you already have a valid document.

Thanks Jalex, it seems the same cases to me, I'm planning also to renew my TRV but still have 6 months more before will expire.
my question: If I visit again in canada and my TRV will soon expire, can i renew it within canada a month before expiry or i will go back to my home country? ;)

No, you cannot 'renew' your visa. You can apply to extend your authorized stay.

You need to apply for a new TRV when you are outside Canada, preferably from your home country where you have the strongest ties

1. When do you intend to travel?

2. When does your passport expire?

My parents got the same situation their multiple visa is expiring on Jan 5 2019 and they and their passport is expiring Dec 2018 so they already renewed their passport, can they apply for a new visa now or wait for it to expire? They are planning to visit again Feb 2019.

Appreciate your help....

I guess there's a mistake. Their TRV validity cannot be longer than their passport validity

Oh yah sorry the validity of their old passport is Jan 6 2019 and the validity of the multiple visa is Jan 5 2019, they have renewed their passports this month and already got the new ones, shall we wait got the TRV to expire before we can apply a new one or wait for it to expire.

Appreciate your thoughts on this matter :)

Hi Guys,

My father renewed Passport as old one was going to expire in May 2019. He has a valid visa on that passport expiry on that was same as passport. He is planning to Visit in May.
Can he apply for new visa now as his passport is renewed. or he need to wait. and if yes he can apply what should be the category i believe there is no renewal in Temporary Multiple Visa document.

Thank You all
