What Is IMM 5257 Application?

The IMM 5257 (also known as the Temporary Resident Visa), is used by individuals that come to Canada for business trips, tourism purposes or by those who want to visit relatives or friends in the country. Every visitor should remember that the application is obligatory to file before departure to the country. It’s required for those who’re non-citizens and non-permanent residents.

To avoid getting mixed up with papers, you’d better know the basic rules of the application. The requirements to prepare the IMM 5257 form include the following:

  1. Proof of your intention to leave Canada at the end of the travel period, for example, the return ticket;
  2. Financial support to show that the applicant can support himself/herself and any family needs during the trip;
  3. Show proof that you will not work or study in the country (in this case, other documents are provided and filled out);
  4. Provide documents showing that you haven’t been engaged in any criminal activity and you are not dangerous to the security of the citizens;
  5. Bring a complete medical examination proving that as a traveler, you are in a good state of health;
  6. Be ready to show other papers required by the officials;
  7. Be sure you sign the document - if you fail to do so, the sample won’t be accepted.
