A visa is an officially approved document issued by authorised bodies for the government, in accordance with the laws of the country, to foreign citizens applying to enter, leave or transit through the country. In line with international law and practice, any sovereign state is entitled to make its own decisions as to whether to allow a foreign citizen to enter or leave its borders, and to issue or refuse to issue a visa, or to revoke an issued visa according to its own laws.
Based on these laws and regulations, Embassy Consular officials may decide on the type of visa, number of entries, validity period and duration of stay, and may also refuse a visa application or revoke an issued visa.
All visa fees once paid are non-refundable irrespective of the outcome of the visa application and duration granted

Single Entry Visa:
A single entry visa allows you to enter Canada only once. This visa may also be used for repeated entries into Canada from the USA or St. Pierre and Miquelon provided you do not enter another country. Such entries must occur within the time authorized by the officer at the port of entry for your stay in Canada.
Multiple Entry Visa :
A multiple entry visa allows you to enter Canada from any country multiple times during the validity of the visa. If you plan to visit Canada multiple times in the near future (for example on business or to visit family), you should consider applying for a multiple entry visa. You may be granted a visa valid for up to 10 years or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. If you wish to come to Canada to visit a child or grandchild, you may wish to apply for a Super Visa.

THE FEE ?
Because of this same day process, we have had to increase our fees. The cost of a single-entry visa is £200.00 (this includes the embassy fee, our fee and postage costs to return the visa to you)
In almost all cases the Embassy charges a fee. If we handle your application, we charge an additional fee in return for providing advice on the requirements, taking responsibility for ensuring that your documentation is correct, and sending a courier to queue up on your behalf to obtain the visa.
The fee can be paid on-line. Full details are provided in our Application Pack
