Super Visa

The Super Visa is a long-term, multiple-entry visa tailored for parents and grandparents, allowing them to visit their family members in the host country for up to five years at a time without the need for status renewal. With a validity of ten years, the Super Visa offers flexibility and convenience for families who wish to plan multiple visits.

Key Advantages:

  • Extended Stay: Unlike standard visitor visas with a six-month stay limit, the Super Visa allows visits of up to five years in length, enabling quality family time.
  • Multiple Entries: The ten-year validity period permits Super Visa holders to travel in and out of the host country as needed, accommodating the diverse needs of global families.
  • Streamlined Renewal: The renewal process is simplified, and in most cases, Super Visa holders are exempt from additional medical examinations.
  • Expedited Processing: Super Visa applications are usually processed faster than standard visitor visas, allowing families to reunite more quickly.

To be eligible for a Super Visa, the applicant must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
  2. Provide a letter of invitation from their child or grandchild who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
  3. Have a signed letter from their child or grandchild confirming that the applicant will be supported financially during their stay in Canada.
  4. Provide proof of private medical insurance coverage for at least one year from a Canadian insurance company.
  5. Undergo a medical examination and obtain a certificate to show that the applicant is in good health.
  6. Have a valid passport and provide proof of ties to their home country, such as a job, home, or family.
  7. Meet the other standard requirements for a visitor visa, such as having no criminal record and demonstrating that they will leave Canada at the end of their authorized stay.

It’s important to note that meeting these requirements does not guarantee that a Super Visa will be granted, as the final decision is at the discretion of the visa officer.
