Super Visas

Super Visa

If you are a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident, your parents or grandparents can apply for a Super Visa to come to Canada. A Super Visa is multiple-entry visitor visa. It is valid for 10 years and allows the visa-holder to enter Canada multiple times over the ten years, and each visit can last for up to two years.

This class of visa was introduced to address a backlog of sponsorship applications for parents and grandparents. Many parents and grandparents coming to Canada to see their family do not intend to stay in Canada permanently, nor do they intend to work or study while they are here. Thus, a flexible, multiple-entry visa is a much better option for parents and grandparents who want to visit their children with some level of frequency, and with the ability to stay for longer periods of time each trip.

To apply for a parent and grandparent super visa, you must have a child or grandchild who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. You must also be allowed to enter Canada according to Canada’s laws. This is called being admissible. There are more conditions that you will have to meet. This is where we, at MCIS, can help you.

At MCIS, we provide you with the assistance gathering the documents and drafting the forms you need to apply for a Super Visa. The Visa officer assessing your application looks at things like your ties to your home country, why you are visiting your child or grandchild in Canada, your finances, your child or grandchild’s finances, you admissibility, your health conditions, whether or not you have health insurance in Canada, and other relevant factors. Having a knowledgeable consultant who can give you and your family members advice and assistance in this process can be very helpful.

We can help you make sure that you have the necessary forms, documents, and the government fees. We can help you prove that your child or grandchild in Canada meets the required minimum income. We can help your child or grandchild write a statement that says that they will be inviting you, and supporting you while you are here. You can enjoy a reunion with your family, and we can handle the rest.

The parent and grandparent Super Visa has conditions which can sometimes make you ineligible. For example, your child or grandchild in Canada must have a certain income level, and you must have Canadian health insurance. As the name implies, it is only available to parents and grandparents visiting their children or grandchildren in Canada. If you do not qualify for the Super Visa, you may qualify for a Multiple Entry Visitor Visa. Visit out Multiple Entry Visitor Visa page for more information.
