A resident visa is a document issued to a foreigner for a legal stay in a certain state or country, for multiple crossing of its borders (entry / exit). It has no fixed minimum or maximum validity, but is typically longer than a tourist visa.
A resident visa, in contrast to a tourist visa, is typically issued at the local imigration office after arrival in the host country. Sometimes you need to apply for a residency visa at an embassy or consulate of the country in question.
The validity period depends on the type of residence visa. Typically, the document is issued for 12-24 months, but in some cases, it can be issued for as little as one month up to a decade or more. The basis for issuing the visa may include, but is not limited to, investment residency visas, starting a business, work, research, study, family reunification.
