A super visa allows the applicant to visit their children and grandchildren in Canada for a period of up to 2 years at a time. It is a multi-entry visa which allows multiple entries for a period of up to 10 years.
A great way to bring Parents and Grandparents to Canada is through the Super Visa program. This program allows family members to come to Canada as long-term visitors on a multiple entry visa that may last up to 10 years. A Super Visa is valid for 2 years before it has to be renewed.
This is an ideal option for Canadian Citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents who are waiting to sponsor their parents for PR, or who currently do not qualify for Parental PR sponsorship.
To be eligible for a Super Visa:
- be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
- have a signed letter from the child or grandchild in Canada including financial support for the length of visit
- have medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company that is valid for at least 1 year from date of entry with a coverage of at least $100 000CAD.
- A written commitment of financial support from the Sponsor (child or grandchild) must be provided
Depending on the citizenship of the sponsored person, a TRV (Temporary Resident Visa) may also be required for non-visa exempt countries. If a TRV is required, there is a rigorous screening process and JS Immigration Consulting is committed to assist the applicant with a view to ease up the process while ensuring that the applicant abides by the various requirements of the program.
