    What is a Canadian Super Visa?

    Foreign citizens who would like their grandparents or parents to temporarily reside with them here in Canada might apply for a Super Visa. Grandparents and parents who qualify may visit relatives in Canada for up to 5 years without having to extend their visa thanks to the Canadian Super Visa. For those family members who want to spend the most time in Canada, this is the perfect route!

    What is the processing time of a Super Visa?

    The length of time it takes to obtain a super visa differs by country, but it usually just requires a few weeks.

    Who Qualifies for a Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents?

    Candidates should be grandparents or parents of Canadian permanent residents or citizens in order to qualify for the super visa. The super visa is not available to people who are dependent on their grandparents or parents. They may nonetheless apply for a standard visitor visa. The candidates for super visas must also be approved for admission to Canada and fulfil certain requirements.

    Before determining whether a candidate is acceptable, visa officers take into account a number of variables. Authorities must have confidence that the candidate is a real foreign tourist who will depart Canada voluntarily at the conclusion of their stay. The following are a few things the officer may take into account:

      • the visitor’s connection to his or her place of origin, 
      • the reason for the trip, 
      • the visitor’s family and financial position, 
      • the general political and economic stability of the nation of origin; 
      • and invites from sponsors in Canada.

    Canada's Super Visa Requirements

    Citizenship for parents and grandparents is valid for five years in Canada without the requirement to reapply.

    • Fill out and send the [IMM5257] form (to be filled out outside of Canada).
    • The financial circumstances of the parent and the host will be taken into account.
    • The general political and economic environments are also relevant.
    • a letter of invitation from the host.
    • Grandparents and parents must fulfill the minimal income standards and give economic help from their children (the host).
    • Show proof of Canadian health insurance (for at least 1 year).
    • complete the necessary medical examinations.
