With a Canadian Super Visa, parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents can travel to Canada and stay with their relatives for up to two years at a time. The Super Visa is a multi-entry visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years. The key difference is that the Super Visa allows an individual to stay for up to two years at a time in Canada, while a 10-year multiple entry visa would only have a status period for each entry of six months only.
This visa is for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens. The parent or grandparent must be considered admissible to Canada and meet other conditions.
Here are a few points to consider before getting a super visa:
- How long does it take to apply for a Super Visa?
- How much income is required for a Super Visa?
- How much does a Super Visa cost?
- Does a Super Visa require a medical inquiry?
To be eligible, children or grandchildren must provide a letter of invitation and meet minimum income requirements. Parents and grandparents then submit this letter along with proof they have obtained Canadian medical insurance. Super Visa insurance also must meet minimum requirements and must cover at least one year from the date of entry to Canada.
