How long can a German stay in Canada?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone!

I am new to the site. My girlfriend would like to come and live with my family for a year. She is from Hamburg, Germany and we live on Vancouver Island. Is this possible? We keep hearing conflicting answers.

The best one is she can come for 6 months but must leave Canada (for instance, go on holiday to Hawaii for a week or a weekend in Seattle) and than she may re-enter for another 6 months.

Can anyone let us know if this is true? We are eager to get her here and we appreciate your help!

Blessings,
Caroline
Duncan, BC, Canada
