Renewing a temporary resident visa (TRV)

Temporary resident visas (TRV) are required for nationals of certain countries. They are needed for entering Canada and returning after a trip abroad.

It is not compulsory to renew your TRV if you are not planning to leave and come back to Canada by plane. However, we do recommend that you do, in case you need to take an emergency flight.

If that is your case

In order to apply for a new TRV, you should have already obtained an extension of your study permit or a post-graduation work permit.
