Hello guys,




I would like to know for what visa should I apply. My situation is next:




I have to embark on a cruiser ship assigned to me on 29th of April 2016 in Vancouver. I am from Serbia and I wonder should I apply for visitors or transit Visa. I would arrive in Vancouver on 28th of April 2016. So basically I will be staying in Canada for less than 24hrs. Transit Visa is valid for 48 hours upon arrival.



Thing that bothers me is that I read somewhere that I cannot leave airport with transit Visa, instead I can only get to another plane in 48hrs span. Thing is that I need to leave airport and to sleep in a hotel so i can embark on the ship next day at 8:00AM on a port.



Please help me, I have little to no assisstance from my employer at STEINER.
