The Canadian Super Visa permits Canadians’ parents and grandparents to visit the country. They can stay for up to two years before needing to renew their status, and they can come numerous times over the course of a ten-year span with super visa Canada.
This visa is available throughout the year and is an option to the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) for people who wish to briefly reconnect with their parents and grandparents.
The Canadian Super Visa provides more assurance of family reunion than the PGP, which has a high demand and limited space. It is especially beneficial for nationals of countries that require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to come to Canada, as it eliminates the need to reapply for a visitor’s visa on a regular basis.
The Super Visa may be available to parents or grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. They cannot be denied entry to Canada on the grounds of health or crime, and they may also need to fulfil additional visa office requirements.
Only Canadian parents or grandparents are eligible for the visa. Spouses or common-law partners may be listed on a Canadian Super Visa application, but not dependents.
