Tourist visa with family

Discussion in 'Visitors' started by Kaur Chaman, Jul 14, 2018.

  1. Hello
    My friend from India wishes to apply for a tourist visa. His mother and other 2siblings are government employees.
    They 4 together are planning a vacation to Canada.
    Can anyone tell me how to apply online in this case?
    The 3siblings are not dependent.
  2. Each applicant must submit his/her individual application using separate online accounts.

    They could mention that they intend to travel together in: Invitation letter + day-by-day plan with expense estimates

  3. Thanks Bryanna!
    Could you please guide me about SAMPLE invitation letter and day-by-day plan with expense estimate?
    Moreover, how much funds each individual must show in respective profile?
  4. I don't have any sample invitation letters. Google can help.

    The funds available for their visit must match their tax returns and declared sources of income.... nothing borrowed, no large transfers shortly before applying (if it's their money, they can include an explanation for the transfers)..... and they must not be financially dependent on their Canadian hosts.

    A couple of points to be concerned about:
    1. Do they have a history of traveling abroad together for vacations?

    2. Is this their first visit abroad?

    3. What is the purpose of their visit as four of them intend to travel together?

    4. Their family ties to India will outweigh those to Canada. Do they have other dependent family members in India? They must apply only if each applicant can demonstrate individual strong ties to India + a compelling purpose of visit + good financial situation, etc.

    5. Depending on their work responsibilities, it is possible that processing might take longer than standard estimates because three applicants work in the government

    6. As their host, your financial documents (your employment letter, bank statement, tax assessments, investments, etc) are optional documents, not mandatory to be submitted
