Super Visa for Parents / Grandparents

What is a Super Visa?

Super Visa is a special typy of Visitor Visa issued to parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

It is a multiple-entry visa that is valid for 10 years. It allows parents and grandparents to stay in Canada up to two years at a time. It is also possible to extend a Super Visa for 1 year at a time.​

Super Visa Requirements

There are a few differences in the application for a regular Temporary Resident Visa and the SUper Visa.

For a Super Visa, the applicant needs to have insurance that is valid for at least one year. The insurance must have at least CAD 100,000 in coverage.

In addition to that, the household of the inviting child / grandchild must meet the Minimum Necessary Income requirements. To prove that, the following documents can be used:
  • Notice of Assessment or T4 for the previous tax year
  • employment letter stating your hiring date and salary
  • bank statements
  • pay stubs
  • Employment Insurance stubs.

Just like with a regular Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), the  immigration officer will consider whether you are a bona fide applicant, meaning how true are your intentions to come back home after 2 years.

In considering that, the officer will look at:
  • the purpose of your visit
  • your ties to the home country
  • your family composition and finance
  • the overall situation (economic and political) in your country of origin.

The officer MAY also ask for a medical exam and police certificates.

How we can help with a Super Visa application?

We will:

  • advise you on your chances to get a Super Visa
  • draft an invitation letter for review of the IRCC immigration officer
  • create a strategy to prove that you are a bona fide applicant and will return home after your visit to Canada
  • prepare and translate, if necessary, the supporting documents
  • write a legal representative's submission letter where we will highlight the strong points of your application
  • complete all applications forms correctly to avoid any future accusation in misrepresentation and 5-year ban to come to Canada.
