Every year thousands of people avail themselves of the Super Visa. The Super Visa is a family stream that allows both Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents to sponsor their parents and their grandparents.

An experienced immigration lawyer can guide you with the steps you should take to obtain a Super Visa. A Visitor Visa allows one to stay in Canada for 6 months. However, if one has a Super Visa, one can sponsor parents and grandparents and they can obtain long-term visitor status in Canada.

Obtaining a Super Visa is not an easy process and a slight misstep can cost you this visa. Always seek the services of an experienced immigration officer when applying for this visa.

An applicant can stay in the country for a period of 2 years at a time and does not have to renew it. Parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents can renew the visa for up to 10 years with multiple entries.

The criteria set by the Canadian government are very strict in regard to such a visa.

Who can apply for a Super Visa?

  • The Super Visa in Canada is for parents and grandparents of Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents. For individuals who would have had to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa, the Super Visa is a great alternative.
  • Parents and grandparents under the Super Visa benefit by not having to go through the multiple steps for a temporary resident visa. With the Super Visa, they can fly in and out of their home country to Canada whenever they want to.
  • It should also be noted, however, that thousands of applicants try for this visa each and every year. This makes it the most sought-after in the country with limited acceptance. Those that retain the counsel of experienced immigration professional have a greater chance of successfully obtaining the visa.
