Temporary Visa

Temporary visas are limited to a period of generally 6 months to 4 years. After a temporary visa expires, a person must leave the country unless they have already applied for and obtained another visa. There are 3 different types of temporary visas:

a)    Work permit
b)    Study permit
c)    Visitor permit

All temporary visas can be renewed. However, an application for renewal must be submitted before the visa expires.
